I started with Sephora aka 'my mothership' like my family calls it, lol and took my time taking swatches. By the way, Urban Decay LIMITED Edition 'Rollergirl' Palette is hot!!!!
I was mainly interested in LORAC luminizer. Now, I have never used a luminizer before or even cared for it until recently I saw Marlena from MakeUpGeek give a tutorial and review on her YouTube channel.
Sadly, the Sephora in Soho didn't carry the brand Lorac and just when I was going to leave the store empty handed, I swatch Nars illuminator...
|$29.00 1.1 oz/30 ml.|
|This is a BEAUTIFUL pinky/peachy color with a nice minimum glow|
|with a flash|
Pros: pretty color, drys fast without caking, everyday wearable (especially for office jobs), although it comes in a small bottle - a little bit goes a long way so this will last you a long time, good from light to dark skin tone and it doesn't have a scent
*** I will be using this more on my cheeks ***
CONS: too much money for the size of the bottle and not "glowy" enough at least for my taste (but still suitable to use)
*** If you're looking for JLO & Kim K. "glowy" look this product may not be it. ***
|LOVE MY PRETTY FEATHER EARRINGS!!!! I bought it in 'white' too, lol|
|I'm wearing the illuminator on my cheeks|
|'Goldilux' from Sugar Pill Cosmetics on my lid and Wet & Wild Pale Pink on my crease|
|Close up on the cheeks....more can be added to bring out the color a bit but it's not a powerful highlighter|
