highlighters fall into the latter category.When it comes to highlighters, I love glow-y and dewy. I am not a fan of glittery or sparkly. Unfortunately, many
So, when the new L’Oreal Paris True Match LUMI Glotion Natural Glow Enhancer landed on my desk, I was a bit skeptical but hopeful!
L’Oreal True Match LUMI Glotion is described as a highlighting glow lotion that instantly hydrates and luminizes skin for an all-over, fresh, natural glow. Infused with glycerin, the highlighting formula is lightweight and delivers an illuminating color tint for healthy, radiant skin.
L’Oreal True Match LUMI Glotion comes in 4 shades for all skintones – Fair, Light, Medium and Deep. L’Oreal suggests to choose the shade that best matches your skin tone and apply under or over foundation—either way works. The lighter shades are intended for use as highlighters, while the darker shades can be used to bronze all-over or contour.
Housed in a squeeze tube, L’Oreal True Match LUMI Glotion has a very lightweight lotion formula that just glides on the skin and blends easily, without a greasy or sticky feel.
I love all things rose gold and the shade I tried (Light) has the perfect rosy/bronze glow! It has a soft, iridescent rosy finish and adds a sheer luminous glow that doesn’t look overly done. It’s not at all sparkly or shimmery and just perfect to enhance your complexion!
I like to use this highlighting lotion over my foundation for a boost of glow, but it also works beautifully under makeup for a gorgeous lit-from-within glow.
And a little goes a long way, whether you’re blending it out for a sheer effect or patting the formula into skin for richer opacity. Once set, the formula wears well throughout the day without creasing or fading.
With my dry skin (that’s super dry right now, thanks to winter), I don’t find this highlighting lotion to be much hydrating but those with oily skin might feel differently. In any case, the finish is moist but not at all tacky or heavy so it would work for all skin types. Here’s the swatch for the shade Light Glow (902)
Overall, L’Oreal True Match LUMI Glotion gets my seal of approval. This highlighting lotion is a must-have, especially if you’re not a fan of powder highlighters and just want an easy hassle-free way to give your skin a dewy, healthy glow. This is a drugstore highlighter done well…and you can snag this rose gold goodness for only $11.99 at Amazon.com!
I have also been trying out 2 shades of the new L’Oreal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Waterproof Pencil Eyeliners.
I LOVE a good pencil eyeliner, and this new one by L’Oreal is not only packed with pigment but the waterproof formula is also suitable for use on waterline.
I was really impressed with how smoothly this eyeliner goes on…there’s no tugging, dragging or skipping. The creamy formula applies easily along the top and bottom lash line as well as the waterline with a rich color payoff.
It dries down to a smooth matte finish and once set, the color stays put practically all day without smudging or fading. The color is truly smudge-resistant and doesn’t transfer or migrate.
Although this waterproof eyeliner wears long and strong on my lash line, the longevity is not that great on the waterline. For me, it only lasts about 3-5 hours on the inner rim in the waterline.
L’Oreal Infallible Pro-Last Waterproof Pencil Eyeliner comes in a range of 6 shades, ranging from purple and cobalt blue to classic black, brown, grey. There’s also a light beige shade called Nude. Here are the swatches of the 2 shades I have…Brown and Cobalt Blue.
Overall, I really like this eyeliner pencil, but wish it had a retractable design instead of needed to be sharpened.
