A few weeks ago I was kindly sent a few Lumiere Cosmetics products to try out and review. I actually haven't heard much about the company but was very interested as they specialize in mineral makeup, which I've never tried before. I was sent a couple of sample sized blushes, three eye pigments and a mini lipgloss. I really like the tiny pots I got the products in, I like tiny things in general actually (weird, I know). I was most excited to try out the eye pigments - I got Cream Soda (which I use as a highlighter as well), Creme Brulee and Soft Brown from Lumiere's Brown & Natural collection.They are great as an everyday look and they kind of complete and compliment each other. Pigmentation is amazing so you don't have to use loads of product, I wasn't expecting this I have to say and I wish I had tried mineral eyeshadows before. The staying power is great as well when used with a primer and you don't have to touch up during the day. Plus Lumiere has got an impressive range of colours. While the eyeshadows could have been picked, the blushes I got were selected randomly by Lumiere - I received Autuumn which is a nice shimmery pink and Magnolia, a violet shade. They have quite a nice pigmentation too but unfortunately don't last long on me at all and fade quickly. Also, I need to get quite a bit of the product and it needs building up bit by bit. Last but not least, I got a sample of one of their lipglosses from the Lumi Lips collection in Siesta. I'm not a fan of lipglosses to begin with but this one is actually alright, it's got a smooth formula and feels more like a lip balm once applied on the lips - I absolutely can't stand sticky lipglosses and that's what put me off of them so I'm quite impressed with this one. It doesn't last long but I don't mind re-applying.
I fell in love with eye pigments thanks to Lumiere and I'm thinking of getting a few of their full sized products. Also the lipgloss was really good, I already ran out of so might get a couple different colours. I don't think I will be using the blushes. I'm so happy I had a chance to try out mineral cosmetics for the first time and will definitely be getting out of my comfort zone when it come to makeup.
