Makeup and Muses: Lumiere Cosmetics Review9/29/2011
Recently, I was contacted by Lumiere Mineral Cosmetics to do a review of a few samples of their products. I had never used Lumiere before so I thought it would be a great way to not only try out a new brand but to also tell you all about it here on makeup and muses.
Before I even received the samples I had to fill out a short questionnaire. The questionnaire asked about my skin tone, my skin type, a head shot and more. I liked that I had to fill this out because it made me feel like the beauty products would be more tailored to my unique skin.
Lumiere skin and beauty bar products are said to naturally enhance the finest features while minimizing problem areas. For me, I tend to have dry skin and some acne scars. So I'm looking for something that can even my skin tone without making it even drier than normal.
The media sample kit that I received included:
3 eye pigments - deep plum, hypnotic and chocolate covered cherries
2 blushes/bronzers - fresh roses and spiced apple
2 foundations - cashmere and flawless face
Let me preface by saying that I'm not used to mineral makeup, but I've always wanted to try it. I put on the cashmere mineral foundation and it went on evenly.
I then put on the spiced apple blushing bronzer, which ended up being a bit brighter/lighter than I had anticipated. But once I blended it in with my Sigma brush it was pretty cool. I usually don't wear blush so having that bit of color on my cheeks was a nice change.
Lastly, I added the hypnotic eye shadow. I was hoping for a shadow that was more pigmented as I am always looking for a color that is going to stand out against my skin tone.
Overall, I am very happy with Lumiere cosmetics. I'm glad to finally have some mineral makeup that I like. It was difficult at the very beginning because I'm not used to mineral makeup so it was a bit messy, but all in all, I think this might cause me to switch from my liquid tinted moisturizer. It doesn't feel heavy at all!
4 out of 5 hearts!
Have you tried Lumiere products before?
