These three highlighters are among my holy grail products.
These are formulated to be used as multi purpose powders for strobing, all over face and body.
These are available in two sizes:
Sample bags containing 1/4 teaspoons of product.
Regular size jar containing ca 7 grams net weight of product.
As always highlighters are notoriously difficult for me to photograph, so please keep in mind that these are much more beautiful in person than in my swatch photos.
I just want to say that nowhere in the description of these powders are there any indication that they are formulated to be lip/eye safe but neither are there any warnings against such use. Therefore I feel that it would have been highly unethical of me to not mention it in this review. Personally I have kept my usage of these products to face and body just to be safe.
Laluna Lustre is a very fine, silky powder that slightly lightens your skin and gives you a luminous gleam. It’s the most subtle of the trio, but personally, I feel that it gives the most interesting effect because it is so finely milled that your skin becomes radiant with an iridescent glow. This makeup is especially dramatic when applied to your face, especially if you have pale, smooth skin- this makeup actually makes your skin look like glowing moonstone, or marble.
This is the most subtle one of the trio and for me this is my favourite everyday highlighter.
It is formulated with a pearly white base and the shimmer is extremely finely milled which combined makes this a glowy but still subtle highlighter.
As Aromaleigh mentions this can lead this to slightly lighten skin, this is not an issue when I use it as a regular highlighter but whenever I use this as an all-over face powder I can definitely see that it does give a slight lightening effect.
It does give a very interesting effect and the description from Aromaleigh is very spot on. It gives a very ethereal vibe to any makeup look I’m sporting.
This is a perfect highlighter for pale cool-toned skin but I do believe that other skin tones will look good with it aswell, it is more about people’s taste than anything else.
Laluna Sparkle contains distinct shimmering iridescent glimmers. In the sunlight or under bright light, it shimmers like radiant tiny diamonds. Apply over skin that you have applied lotion to (preferably with a high SPF, of course!), the effect is even more pronounced, and the product will stay longer on your skin. Twilight Sparkle may slightly lighten your skin, but it is formulated to be suitable for many skintones, in a transparent base.
This has larger shimmer particles compared to Lustre and yes it does look like tiny diamonds when it is applied on skin, actually it reminds me of a long discontinued product from Nivea from when they still produced makeup.
I sometimes use this on my cheekbones when I want to have a more “dramatic” look but in general I do prefer to use this on my body and in particular on my décolleté if I’m wearing a dress or a top.
It really does give an eye-catching effect that is gorgeous but avoids going into the tacky or cheap connotation that products like these often can.
The swatches are taken in different lightning conditions but the sparkles are far more vivid in irl especially when its sunny.
Laluna Dazzle provides the most intense borealis iridescent sparkle on your skin. Dazzle sparkles beautifully even under indoor lights, and simply, well… “Dazzles” in the bright sunlight. Wear this one when you *want* to be noticed. Apply over skin that you have applied lotion to (preferably with a high SPF, of course!) and the effect is more pronounced and the product will stay longer on your skin. This formula contains pure mineral makeup shimmer in a transparent base, so it can be used on a variety of skin tones.
This one is the queen of sparkles and definitely not an everyday-look item, but it is one of those items that I just need to have in my makeup collection.
Just as with Sparkle this is one that I mostly enjoy using on my body and décolleté but I have on occasion used it on my cheek bones. It gives such a gorgeous but dramatic look that makes me feel ethereal and beautiful.
Just so I have put it out there, I actually sometimes use this beneath my eyes which might not sound like a great idea but is in fact very beautiful in my opinion+it helps hiding away dark under eye circles. This is only in combination with a dramatic eye look and a good concealer.
Of these three formulas this is also the one with the “thinnest” consistency, if it even makes sense of me saying that.
Since it is the only one formulated with a transparent base it might also be more forgiving towards a wider range of skin tones.
I love these highlighters.
They are silky and easy to use, the formula of each of these three are just perfect in my opinion.
I can feel safe recommending these to people but I want to add that it might be a good idea to order a sample if you are unsure since they do have the tendency to slightly lighten skin, something not everyone will like.
