L'Oreal True Match LUMI Liquid Glow, Powder Glow Illuminator Review and Swatches
Wednesday, April 5, 2017
Liquid Glow or Powder Glow? That is the question! There's only one winner here (at least in my book)! I purchased L'Oreal's True Match LUMI Liquid Glow Illuminator (Golden W101) and Powder Glow Illuminator (Golden W101) on sale at ULTA last year. Who wouldn't want a GOLDEN GLOW? I had to try them. FYI: These are also offered in ICE & ROSE. Below are my thoughts on each.

Here's the WINNER! Now let me tell you! The first time I swatched this, I was like WHOA! Do you see that metallic? Put on your shades! LOL I said, there is NO WAY this is going to work on my face! I'm going to look like a metallic martian! Well, that is not the case! If you click on my picture, you can make it bigger. I applied this atop my makeup (cheeks, nose, and forehead) and it gave me such a beautiful glow. I applied like 3 layers! IT BLENDED with my makeup beautifully & effortlessly. You can use this atop your makeup. You can apply it before your makeup. You can mix it with your liquid foundation. I really like it and it looks so natural. I think the only thing I would do differently is not apply it to the middle of my forehead. I would just stick with my nose and cheek areas. I highly recommend this. I think you would love it.

Now Dis! LMAO I'm all for sparkle, but this is just TOO SPARKLY for me! It looks like the sparkle fairy, threw a bag of pixie sparkle dust in my face. I just feel its too much. Especially for daytime. Maybe you can get away with it at night. Maybe just use it on your collarbones for sparkle. It's just too much for my face. I swatched all 4 colors and then I show them blended together. The packaging is cool. It's compartmentalized. You have the illuminator and then a brush. But this just didn't work for me.
