#3 VDL Lumilayer All Stick
$36, available at all VDL stores
Another brand that’s putting its well-loved illuminating primer in a convenient stick form is VDL. But unlike the original version, the Lumilayer All Stick has added white and gold pigments for a better brightening effect. The balm-type product, which glides on smoothly and adds a bit of moisture to the skin, can also be used before and after makeup. Think of it as a moisturising balm with barely-detectable shimmer that’s great for achieving mul-gwang (read: Korean water glow) skin and killer cheekbones at any time of the day.
