I like to incorporate multifunctional products into my beauty routine so when JOAH Beauty launched their new Crystal Glow Primedation, a multifunctional foundation, I was instantly intrigued.

Adding multifunctional beauty products to my routine helps me in numerous ways such as shortening my makeup and skincare routines as well as helping me out budget wise since I don’t have to purchase separate products for each step. JOAH Beauty gifted me a few shades of their latest launch prior to launch day. I tested Crystal Glow Primedation out and have first impressions, swatches, and all the product details in this post.

I’ve been using skincare, makeup, and beauty tools by JOAH Beauty for quite some time now and had great experiences in each category. I especially enjoy JOAH Beauty’s Endless Longwear Liquid Lipsticks - I have a whole post about these budget friendly long lasting liquid lipsticks here.

JOAH Beauty is a cruelty free beauty brand that offers products that are inspired by the Korean beauty philosophy of “beauty begins with the skin” and their products are at a budget friendly price point. JOAH Beauty products can be purchased online at their website and also at CVS.

What is Crystal Glow Primedation?

JOAH Beauty’s newest innovation is a foundation that has the functionality of 3 things, skincare, primer, and foundation. Primedation 3-in-1 Foundation provides natural radiance, acts as a smoothing primer, and a light to buildable medium coverage foundation that camouflages fine lines and blurs imperfections.

Primedation 3-in-1 Foundation is infused with:

  • Hyaluronic acid - hydrates skin
  • Collagen - firms and plumps skin
  • Luminizing peptide - boosts radiance
  • Blue light protection 

This new foundation by JOAH Beauty comes in 24 shades and costs $15.99. Primedation 3-in-1 Foundation can be purchased on their website.

Swatches of JOAH Beauty Primedation 3-in-1 Foundation

JOAH Beauty sent over 6 of the 24 shades in the medium spectrum of their line. Below are swatches of all 6 shades I received.

My First Impressions

I’m using PMW050 right now but am going to test out a deeper shade since I found PMW050 a hair too light - it will definitely work great towards the end of fall and during winter though! I used the beauty sponge JOAH Beauty sent in the press package and found this foundation to blend seamlessly.

I applied one layer of JOAH Beauty Crystal Glow Primedation 3-in-1 Foundation and found the product to blend seamlessly on my skin. You can see in the photo what half of my face looks with a single layer of Primedation 3-in-1 Foundation while the other half is bare. This foundation gives the natural, radiant, and smooth finish that is described by JOAH Beauty.

You can catch a video form of myself applying Crystal Glow Primedation here on Instagram or here on TikTok.

Since this formula is infused with a smoothing primer, I skipped applying primer. I use a smoothing primer often and I can see myself continuing to do without applying my own primer when using this foundation but I will say, it doesn’t give me the full smoothing and blurring effect I look for but it is pretty close! 

I have combination skin and am picky when it comes to foundations that provide a radiant finish since I have an oily t-zone. I wore this foundation for about 6 hours prior to washing it off and was really happy with how my skin didn’t turn into or feel like a greasy mess. I completed my look with a close to full face of makeup after applying the Primedation 3-in-1 Foundation and all my other layers of makeup applied really well on top.

I actually wore a few other JOAH Beauty products in this look including the Blur-Fection Translucent Setting Powder, Endless Longwear Liquid Lipstick in Teatime, and Lash UPrising Volumizing and Lengthening Mascara.

Overall, I do enjoy this foundation and can see myself reaching for it often since I do prefer light to medium coverage. Primedation 3-in-1 Foundation feels really lightweight and skinlike and gives a healthy luminizing finish.
