Lumiere Cosmetics Review! x



Hello my lovelies!

I'm here today to alert you to a fab company called Lumiere Cosmetics. They recently sent me some samples of their cosmetics to review and I was rather excited as I had never tried mineral makeup before. When the samples arrived I was totally impressed with how they were packaged (in hard plastic) so securely and I thought the little tubs were cute too :)






I recieved 7 test pots - 3 eye pigments, 2 foundations and 2 blushes.





Left to right: Khaki, Peppermint Patti, Creme Brulee




As you can see all of the eye pigments are incredibly pretty, but my favourite would have to be Creme Brulee. This pigment is perfect for everyday wear - It's very natural, but with a hint of glam! I would wear the other two colours on nights out. The eye pigments are perfect for building and blending colour and are all easy to apply, which is great because I am a total novice when it comes to loose powders.




Left to right: Cherry Blossom, Mauvelous




I preferred Mauvelous to Cherry blossom as I like my blushes quite pink, but I think Cherry Blossom would look amazing with a tan as it is really shimmery. I blended these shades with my usual pressed powder and a little went a long way. Both gave a nice natural-looking glow to my cheeks.




Left to right: Light Medium Cashmere, Light Medium Luminesse
*These are no where near as light in real life, they just would not take a decent pic :/




The luminesse is much more my colour, but i guess the cashmere would work on paler skin. Personally I don't feel I get enough coverage from a powder alone, so I think I shall be sticking to liquid foundation.




Overall I loved most of these products, I would definately use the eye pigments again :) If you like mineral makeup, loose powders and gorgeous pigments you should certainly head over to Lumiere and check out what they have to offer ♥

Do you use mineral makeup and do you like it? :)



* All opinions are mine and 110% honest
