L'Oreal True Match Lumi Collection Glotion Nude Glow Amour Shimmerista Highlighters Review Swatches

The star of this collection is, in my opinion, the True Match Lumi Glow Amour liquid highlighter ($18.99 CAD for 14ml)! These glow boosting drops can be applied anywhere you want an intense shimmery glow, or mixed with your favorite foundation.

L'Oreal True Match Lumi Glow Amour Drops 507 508 Review

They are available in two shades, 507 Daybreak (a very light pink) and 508 Golden Hour (a yellow gold). I love both, although I prefer 507 because the finish is more metallic. The finish is shimmery and quite intense, it looks a bit wet on the skin.

They feel slightly oily, but they don't lift off my foundation. By the way, the shade 507 is much thicker than 508, but they both apply beautifully on the skin.

I like to mix the True Match Lumi Glow Amour drops with a matte foundation too! But only if it's a full coverage foundation, otherwise the shimmer particles are too noticeable for my liking. The finish is so pretty and it doesn't affect the wear time of my foundation!

L'Oreal True Match Lumi Nude Palettes 750 760 Review

Available in two shades, the True Match Lumi Glow Nude highlighter palettes ($20.49 CAD for 7.3g) contain 4 colors each.

The formula is very powdery, it doesn't adhere well on the skin. Some of the shades can look chalky as well, especially on deeper complexions. Even when my skin is at its palest (NC15), I need to be careful when applying the shades Moon and Venus.

Also, I think it's worth noting that the palette 760 Moonkissed contains one shade with a different finish, Moon has a very subtle pearl finish.

With that being said, you can definitely get a beautiful glow with them, if you know how to apply them. I find that they look best if I apply them after I've set my makeup with a setting spray, the finish is more intense.

Bottom line is, the True Match Lumi Glow Nude highlighter palettes can be pretty on the skin, but it's not my favorite formula.

Next up are the True Match Lumi Glotion natural glow enhancers ($19.99 CAD for 40ml). Available in 4 shades, these shimmery creams can be applied all over the face, alone or under your makeup. They are unscented and none of the shades contain glitters!

L'Oreal True Match Lumi Glotion 901 902 903 904 Review

The color 901 has a subtle shimmery finish, while 902 is more shimmery and slightly frosty. The two darkest shades (903 and 904) have a satin, slightly luminous finish.

I think this would be a great product for those of you with dry skin, but my skin is oily and the formula is too hydrating for me (the second ingredient is glycerin, a humectant).

However, I love to mix the True Match Lumi Glotions with my body cream, especially the darkest shade! It's beautiful on the legs!

L'Oreal True Match Lumi Shimmerista Powders Highlighters 506 505 Review

There are two different highlighting powders in this collection, and while I'm not sure how I feel about the highlighter palettes, I love the True Match Lumi Shimmerista strobe powders ($19.99 CAD for 8g)!

These loose powders are available in 2 shades : 506 Sunlight (a shimmery rose gold) and 505 Moonlight (a translucent white with a silvery blue sheen).

For these swatches, I applied the powders on bare skin (no primer) with a round brush. I know they look glittery on this photo, but they aren't!

By the way, they have a gorgeous metallic finish if you apply them with a slightly damp brush!

My only problem with these powders is that I can only wear the shade 506 if I'm extremely tan, and 505 is very unique and beautiful, but I don't wear silvery blue highlighters very often. I wish they had more shades!
