L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Glotion Natural Glow Highlighter Review
Recommended for: Sometimes it feels like we’re on a perpetual search for a lightweight illuminator. Well, that search ends here. True Match Lumi Glotion is exactly what’s missing from your skin care—and makeup—routine.
By now you must be familiar with just how popular highlighting products have become. They come in a wide range of forms (creams, liquids, and powders to name a few) and colors imaginable, and they all do the same thing: Give your skin a radiant finish. But what if you want more from your makeup? L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Glotion Natural Glow Highlighter goes beyond illumination to hydrate the skin as well.
Why We Love It: You can’t beat instant hydration and illumination, especially when they’re delivered at the same time—by the same product. Of course, it isn’t just any glow that we would love. We’re particularly smitten with the fresh and healthy look the Glotion gives our skin.
How to Use It: Luckily, applying L’Oréal Paris’ new highlighting product is practically foolproof. Dot it on, and blend out. Getting your glow on couldn’t be easier. Throw a makeup blender into the mix if you wish.
Start by deciding what look you want to achieve, whether that’s total illumination or defined features, then select the shade that best suits your needs (there are four, ranging from fair to deep). To get an all-over glow, choose a shade that’s lighter than your skin tone and smooth the Glotion on. To get that sun-kissed look, apply a shade that’s darker than your skin tone all over for a beautiful, bronzed look. To use it as a highlighter, apply a shade that’s lighter than your skin tone to key points on your face. Not sure what’s really key? Dot—then blend—the highlighter onto your forehead, cupid’s bow, chin, and cheekbones. To use it as a contour color, apply a shade that’s darker than your skin tone to your temples, the contours of your cheeks, and along your jawline for a sculpted effect.
No matter which look you settle on, it’s up to you whether Glotion should be the start of your makeup routine or the beginning of a makeup-free day. Wear it alone, or under the rest of your makeup.
