FARSALI UNICORN ESSENCE ELIXIR
🦄If you’ve been living under a rock like I was, let me bring you up to date on this trendy brand. Farsali is a brand created by Sal Ali, beauty guru, Farah Dhukai’s husband in an effort to create a skincare line that enhanced the look of your makeup. The Farsali brand includes serums, primers, a cleanser and lash enhancer. Their serums and primer are the hot items at the moment and if you take a look at their Instagram you’ll see that every big beauty Instagramer or Youtuber is featuring the product in their makeup routines.
I really wanted to get their Rose Gold Elixir because I’ve been trying out a lot of matte liquid lipsticks and it looked like the solution to a problem we all usually have. Seriously dried out lips! But when Unicorn Essence Elixir was reintroduced and was selling out on Sephora, I knew I better grab this antioxidant serum and primer because EVERY other time I’d seen it, it was already gone and not available for months. Still got my eye on the Rose Gold Elixir, but had to get this one first!
🦄This dual purpose serum is oil-free, suitable for all skin types, preps the skin for makeup application and fights free radical damage with it’s unique blend of superfruit extracts. The formula is pink and shimmery and totally appeals to my visual senses. I think the scent is possibly Vanilla? It smells like it has more to it than that, but I’m pretty bad at describing scents. Just know it smells good!
💜Since this is a pricier primer serum for me to use, I only use it if I’m going to wear makeup that day. It absorbs well and does leave my skin feeling smooth and moisturized so my foundations apply evenly. Not an artificial, silicone-like smooth, but your own skin, just better.
💜 I appreciate that the serum has so many great ingredients to it and has a high level of antioxidants for my mid-thirties skin. Acai berry, Elderberry, Goji berry and Blueberry extracts are just a few of the easy to recognize ingredients in this skin prep primer.
💜 I can’t say that my makeup lasts longer with this serum because I think I use a pretty good foundation with holding power, but the fact that my skin has the right level of hydration before I put a foundation on is key for me. If something is too oily my makeup with slide around and wear off around my nose and between my brows.
