~ Review: Lumiere Skin & Beauty Bar Cosmetics ~


Hello Lovlies,

How have all of you been over the weekend.

Today I am here to review a couple of cosmetics by Lumiere Skin & Beauty Bar.These products were sent to me by Lumiere to try & review.



First of all a little introduction to Lumiere Mineral Cosmetics:

4. Eye Pigment in Ditto
5. Lipgloss in Pink Quartz
OK So now lets get to the main point the review of the products:

~ Cashmere Foundation in Fair Golden:

Lumiere describes it as:
Cashmere -
Skin type = all skin types
Coverage - buildable light to medium
Finish = mostly matte, has a soft silkiness
Ingredients = real silk powder, serecite (colorless mica), titanium dioxide, zinc oxide, boron nitride, iron oxide

WHAT I HAVE TO SAY ABOUT IT:

This mineral powder foundation is extremely light on the skin & has a buildable coverage from minimum to maximum.You can apply it as you want it to be.It has a matte finish but if you have a closer look you will find tiny shimmer particles in it as well that gives the skin a fresh glow as well.Its staying power is quite good but with a bit of concealer and finishing powder it would certainly stay on for a much longer period of time.
This cashmere powder foundation is available in 6 different shades & 3 different sizes 4gm Large jar for $12 XX Jar for $18 & Sample for $1.
Here is how it looks when applied onto my hand: See the difference



~Lumiere Blush in Fresh Roses:
Lumiere describes it as:
Silk Blush:

silk powder, serecite (clorless mica), titanium dioxide, zinc oxide, boron nitride,

iron oxide may contain: carmine, silica, tin oxide, calcium aluminum borosilicate
Description
Soft & silky sweet pink rose

WHAT I HAVE TO SAY ABOUT IT :
This Lumiere Mineral blush in Fresh Roses is a Pink shade with a browner tone to it & thats why it gives a warmer effect to the cheeks.I would love to use this shade in winters.Though its a pink shade but it has that warmer effect to it.The good thing about these blushes by Lumiere is that these can be worn both dry & wet.If worn wet they appear a bit darker than the dry ones.These are available in 10 lovely shades to choose from & are priced at $4 for Large 4 gm jar & $1 for a sample bag.
Here is a swatch of the Blush:


~Lumiere 3 D Eye in Helitrope:
Lumiere describes it as:
Lumiere eye pigments come in a wonderful variety of shades and textures to complement any eye color and/or preference.Wear each shade alone or mix and match to create a custom color. They can be applied dry for a subtle look or wet/foiled to make a more dramatic appearance - this will also give you longer wear. Can be worn with or without an eye primer.
3-D Powders:
premium grade serecite (colorless mica), mica, iron oxide, avena sativa, 
titanium dioxide may contain: ferro ferrocyanide
WHAT I HAVE TO SAY ABOUT IT:

If you peak into the jar for a moment or hold the jar closed at look at it from outside this shade called Heliotrope appeared to me to be a beautiful grey shade but I was surprised to see that it was more of a purple shade with violet shimmers.By having a look at the range of eye shades available on Lumiere's website I want to own all of them as I like all of them really.These eye pigments are very smooth on the skin and the layers can be build as you like it.These would stay longer on the eyes when an eye shadow base is applied beforehand.Though the eye pigments are quite pigmented themselves but they will come out even better with a base.The large 2gm jar is available for $8 & the mini 1 gm jar for $5.
Here is a swatch of the shade without an eye shadow base:

Eye Pigment in Ditto 6:
Lumiere describes it as:
Description
Ditto06 - is similar to MAC Copper Sparkle
Color Description:
Bold Coppery Sparkles - looks "chunky" but, goes on smooth!
WHAT I HAVE TO SAY ABOUT IT :
Now this what a true copper color is.I am absolutely in love with it.Its very pigmented and stays well put even without an eye shadow base.It is a very rusty copper I would say if asked to explain with a nice balanced amount of shimmer.Absolutely gorgeous.The large 2gm jar is available for $8 & the mini 1 gm jar for $5.
Here is a swatch of this beauty without an eye shadow base:

~Lumiere Lipgloss in Pink Quartz:
Lumiere describes it as:
Description
Rosy pink with iridescent golden pink sheen - Best on COOL undertones
Our Lumi Lips lip colors contain jojoba oil, which is very similar to the oils your skin produces naturally. The jojoba oil works as a protective film, locking in moisture and helping to prevent chapped lips.These lip colors are silky, long wearing, and never sticky.

WHAT I HAVE TO SAY ABOUT IT:
This lipgloss is a beautiful pink shade with a luminous glossy finish.It has a good staying power and due to the presence of jojoba oil it helps to moisturize the lips.Though it would need to be retouched after a little while like most of the lipglosses.I love this small sample that I got.I think its a really cute lip gloss for my collection.Its available in loads of lovely shades and is priced at $8.50 for a Large squeeze tube & A large lip wand & $3 for Mini Sized Lip wand.
Here is a swatch of the lip gloss:

You can order Lumiere cosmetics here.The good thing is that they ship worldwide.
Thanks a lot for reading.Any comments and queries are welcomed.

Stay Happy Always,
