Today’s post is L’Oreal Paris True Match Lumi Powder Glow Illuminator Rose Review,Swatch,Photos
I desire luminosity in my final makeup look so whenever any brand comes up with illuminators or highlighters, I never miss swatching them ( atleast ).Recently L’Oreal Paris India launched ,its first ever,range of powder and liquid highlighters. Both the formulas are available in two shades of Gold and Rose in India whereas internationally these are launched in three shades- Ice,Rose and Gold. Golden Illuminator enhances peachy / yellow undertones of warm complexions whereas Rose Illuminator enhances yellow, peachy, pink or blue undertones of neutral/ fair – medium skin complexions. I picked Liquid Gold Illuminator and Powder Rose Illuminator for no particular reason albeit just wanted to try both formulas and both shades in minimal budget. In this post , I have shared my review on Rose – Powder Illuminator . Keep reading for more !!

L’Oreal Paris True Match Lumi Powder Glow Illuminator Rose Review
Highlight Key Features or Illuminate All-Over. Lightweight Formula. For every skin tone and undertone. The ultimate luminosity. L’Oréal Paris introduces its first powder highlighter specifically crafted to highlight key features or illuminate all-over. Designed in Golden, Rose, and Ice shades that flatter every skintone from warm to neutral to cool. Golden Illuminator enhances peachy or yellow tones in warm skin tones. Rose Illuminator enhances yellow, peachy, pink or blue tones in neutral skin tones. Ice Illuminator enhances pink or blue tones in cool skin tones.
L’Oreal Paris True Match Lumi Powder Glow Illuminator comes in a clamshell compact case with beautiful rose gold accents. Packaging looks attractive with four different illuminator powders set in ‘envelope shaped’ powder cake ,as visible through transparent lid. Second chamber beneath the powder highlighter has good quality mirror and small, flat edged brush applicator which turns out quite handy especially while travelling. Base of the compact bears the sticker which explains the product application with diagram and list the ingredients. Overall I loved the packaging especially the Rose-gold finish !!
L’Oreal Paris True Match Lumi Powder Glow Illuminator has fine-milled powdery texture which blends effortlessly. Illuminator Powder has fine silver shimmer which blends nicely with powder and does not migrate all over the face.However compared to other drugstore powder highlighters I have tried, L’Oreal powder highlighter feels slightly stiff and less pigmented. My brush picks very less amount of the product even if I swirl my brush to the level of scratching out the product. On same note, I need to apply more of this powder to achieve that luminous glow . However it does not highlight appearance of pores rather adds very healthy and natural looking luminosity
L’Oreal Paris “Rose” Illuminator has four different shades – two shades are lighter being silvery white & peachy beige whereas the other two shades are rose toned with slight difference in intensity . I usually swirl my Sigma Fan F24 highlighter brush all over the pan and apply powder illuminator on bony prominences of my face. Since the powders are densely packed,there is hardly any fall outs in the pan although other day I noticed fly outs while blending powders on my cheeks.I tried applying them individually also but the lighter shades look gaudy on my medium skin tone. I rather get a natural, fresh glow with all the four powders blended together. L’Oreal Paris Lumi Powder Glow Illuminator Rose will compliment fair to medium skin tones especially one with subtle pink undertones.It adds beautiful rosy-pink with duo-chrome of silver white glow to the face which looks great for regular wear.
As claimed by brand , It can either be applied on the focal points or on the entire face.However ,I personally suggest just to use it to highlight focussed areas – – bridge of your nose,brow bone,inner corners of eyes – of your face as the shade rose may not look good as overall highlighter on most of Indian skin tones .Also the shimmer in the powder looks garish when used all over face. Again it is claimed as blush highlighter by brand but it barely has any color, so better use it as highlighter with pink or peach blushes. The staying power of the illuminator is around 4-5 hours, which is pretty decent but lasts longer when sealed with a makeup setting spray- using MAC FIX+ these days. However towards the end of the day the shimmer in the powder gains prominence which looks bit unsightly.
VANILLA RATINGS 7/10
L’Oreal Paris True Match Lumi Powder Glow Illuminators are beautifully packaged highlighter powders which add soft ,natural glow to face . Texture of L’Oreal Paris True Match Lumi Powder Glow Illuminator – Rose is smooth but slightly stiff compared to other drugstore powder highlighters I have tried. Shimmer in the powders is finely milled and does not look gaudy in bright day light as such.L’Oreal Paris True Match Lumi Powder Rose is assemble of four beautiful silver – rose colors that will suit fair to medium skin complexions. Although all the shades can be individually used as highlighters, I prefer to use them all together for that soft rose toned highlighting that suits my NC 41 skin tone best.
Unlike claimed by brand , I will suggest using this powder only for focused highlighting over using it as all over powder. Again it is marketed as blush highlighter, It barely has any color to be used as blush.Powders, however, blend seamlessly adding this beautiful glow to my face without highlighting pores. It stays for 4-5 hours on my face but shimmer tends to gain prominence once the powder fades. It looks expensive but user friendly packaging and quantity ( 9g) justify the price to some extent.
