I enjoy doing beauty product reviews. I might not wear that much make up on a regular basis, but when I do, I do like to look my best.
When I go to work I tend to keep my make up simple. After all, I work with children. They don’t care if I have mega-long eyelashes or the “in” lipstick color of the season. None the less, I always try to look my best, even with minimal make up.
On those wonderful occasions where my husband and I get to go out on a date (movies, comedy club, dinner…) I look to look flawless. I love looking my very best for my loving husband.
I’m always on the look out for beauty products that will save me time, money, or greatly improve a product I am normally using. I’m also open to new products that I might not have tried yet.
I was sent to review some amazing products from the brand Lumene, specifically their Invisible Illumination line of products.
I love! love! love! love! love this product! It’s amazing!
I use just a drop or two from the dropper on my fingers, rub my fingers together, and place this around my cheeks, forehead and anywhere else that I feel I want to add some brightness to.
This product WORKS! It really adds light and illumination to my drab and dull skin. It look healthier and “awake.” My skin looks so fresh and bright.
You can even apply this product to other areas of your face. I have used it on the area above my eyelids (but below my eyebrows) to add a pop of shine and iridescent color to my eyes for a night out with my husband.
Sometimes I am sent products that I love so much that I become a regular customer of the brand. This is one such product. I fully intend on purchasing more once my sample is used up. I NEED this product in my life. It’s amazing!
Instant Glow Beauty Serum
This is a lovely product to use on a your face prior to applying your make up. I find that it makes my make up look BETTER after I apply everything on top of this product.
I have used this product “as is” on my face as well, with no other make up.
I have no problem running errands bare faced (with the exception of some mascara). Normally when I do that my skin looks worn, drab and dull. It look old and worn out. When I use this product on my face I think it makes me look like I have some “life” in my skin and it looks like I’m healthy. It looks like it helps to “hide” some of the things on my face I am not keen about (small wrinkles, spots, large pores…).
I don’t usually wear liquid make up, but this is the one product I will make the exception for. I don’t just see it as a make up. I see it as a beauty product I need to prime my face before the rest of the make up is applied.
This product is really unique. It’s a liquid blush, just as you would expect with the word “watercolor” in the name.
This blush is very blendable. You can use as much, or as little, as you want.
I have to admit that it has taken me a while to figure out the best way to use this blush. I kept using too much of it and I wasn’t blending it in too well, so my cheeks looked like someone pinched them (but not in a good way). It has taken me some time, but I think I have finally got the hang of using this blush.
I don’t use bronzers due to the fact that I am VERY fair skinned and pale looking. Bronzers don’t look right on me (trust me, I’ve tried a lot of them). For that reason I told the brand not to send me one of these products to review. Sorry about that.
I am very impressed with the Lumene products that I received to review. As I mentioned earlier in the post, the highlighter is my new favorite product. I am obsessed with it. I fully intend on purchasing that product over and over again once I run out of it. Thankfully, with all three products, a little bit goes a long way.
