I’ll be honest, liquid highlighters and luminizer/Illuminators or liquid highlighters terrify me. I’ve tried playing with them several times and it’s never gone well. I usually overuse them which make me look crazy AF or they take off my foundation 🙄. I just cannot seem to get them right and since it’s 2018, I’ve decided to give them a go again and here’s what happened when I tested out the L’Oréal Lumi Glow Amour, which is part of their brand new highlighter range.
I saw these advertised on their Instagram and I knew I had to check them out. I opted for their pinkish color because I felt like it would suit my skin the best. The bottle was sealed but I found it extremely hard to pick up the product in dropper. You don’t need a lot of product but getting product in the dropper was a challenge within itself. Once I was finally able to pick up the product, I did a quick hand swatch for you.
As you can see the swatch is a bit subtle; but that’s exactly what I was hoping for. I wanted a natural glow compared to a crazy AF one. This looked like it could be a nice subtle highlighter or look nice while mixed in foundation. I adore the shade. So when I applied it to my face, I mixed with my Fenty beauty foundation which has become a staple in my routine. I found this shade mixed in with the foundation was beautiful. The color was stunning and really gave me the glow from within kind of vibe. Overall, I was impressed and satisfied with this formula and I will be finding new ways to incorporate it into my routine. This product is seriously helping me combat my fear of liquid highlighter.
Have you tried Liquid illuminator?
