L'Oreal Lumi Magique Pearl Powder

On a Recent Boots shopping trip I picked up a powder I hadn't heard or seen anything about; the 'L'Oreal Lumi Magique Pearl Powder'- it looked too pretty to leave in the store!

On first inspection the powder looked to me like a highlighter & that's what I though I was purchasing - a highlighter! When I got home & had a play around with my new buys, I read the back of the product & it said 'Our first illuminating powder which mattifies, highlights and gives a radiant healthy glow'. I was dumbfounded, how could this intensely shimmery powder give my skin a matt finish?! You can clearly see the shimmer on the product from my pictures I took when I first bought the powder.  
So I continued to use the powder as a highlighter placing it on the high points of my face, cheek bones, nose etc. I though I had found an amazing high street highlighter for a great price. After two weeks of use the shimmer started to fade, leaving behind a light iridescent powder.  
So now L'oreals description started to make sense. The shimmer was just a thin over spray & infact this product is an illuminating powder. Bad descriptive work from L'oreal there.

After initially being slightly disappointed I continued to use the powder & realised that it is a very close dupe to the finish that Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder gives the skin. It's just dryer & thinner in consistency, giving the face a less intense glow but none the less a very similar idea. The powder has a very light pink hue that doesn't show up on my skin. It also doesn't contain sparkle or shimmer it's more of subtle glow, so looks very natural. I love using it for setting my under eyes.

  3. That's too bad the shimmer was just an overspray! I hate it when products have that! It's great that you're able to use it under the eyes too and that is comparable to the hourglass!
