L’Oreal Magic Lumi Highlighter

Hello everyone,

As you all must know highlighting and contouring in makeup looks gives a great sculpted look. Any makeup session without highlighting is a little incomplete. I personally am a huge fan of contouring and highlighting, and just cannot do my makeup looks without it. My love for highlighting makes me try new highlighting products.

I recently got the L’Oreal Magic Lumi Highlighter and was really expecting it to be great considering it’s comparison with the YSL highlighters, but somehow this product let me down. Dig in to know how.

My experience with L’Oreal Magic Lumi Highlighter:

Packaging: This highlighter comes in a twist-pen packaging. There is a brush on the top for easy application of the product. You just need to twist the pen at the base and the highlighter will appear. The brush is of good quality. Such packaging has become quite common these days but it is easy to use nevertheless. The packaging is both travel friendly & hygienic and all the more the shiny metallic pen is quite attractive and looks classy.

Texture: This liquid highlighter has a thick consistency. It requires some efforts in blending, but once blended it does not show up much.

Shade: I got the highlighter in shade medium. It has some very fine shimmers which adds luminescence glow to face.

Pigmentation: This pen cannot be used as a concealor since it offers no coverage and even for usage as a highlighter a lot of product needs to be used.

My Take: The main reason that intrigued this purchase of mine was its comparison with YSL highlighters. I got high hopes with the L’Oreal Magic Lumi Highlighter due to its comparison with the YSL version, but later I felt that it did not deserve this much of hype.

I thought that this would be a perfect highlighter for me as I am really fond of pen highlighters and concealors. It has a hygienic and attractive packaging but this is it to love about this highlighter.  It is a little thick and requires few efforts in blending. Once blended it does not show up much on skin.  This will only work as a highlighter and adds a bit of luminescence after using a lot of product. The quantity of product that I need to use makes me feel that this highlighter will last only for 5-6 usages.

Overall, I feel this highlighter is overly hyped and is not something to gaga about; I have better highlighting options than this.

What I Like About L’Oreal Magic Lumi Highlighter:

  • Classy and attractive packaging.
  • Adds a subtle glow to face.

What I Don’t Like About L’Oreal Magic Lumi Highlighter:

  • Needs efforts in blending.
  • Requires a lot of product.
  • No concealing on dark areas, as claimed.
  • Adds a very light luminescence.
  • Not worth the money.

Rating: 2.5/5

Will I Recommend: Not at all, neither will I recommend nor I will repurchase it.

P.S.- Review Update– This is basically a highlighter which acts best when used as a concealer as it looks most natural when applied on the skin.

Moreover, it has the orange tinge which conceals the dark areas of the face and gives a flawless natural look! It has a very hygienic and easy to use twist up packaging. It is probably the best natural looking highlighter product which has multiple uses! 🙂

  1. Great review Anamika and you look beautiful. I havent got around to trying any of these products but I feel the same. These products can only work for gals with practically no dark circles and lighter skin tone for under eye are in my opinion.

  2. You are right in a way…when i was not getting the desired result what I was looking I googled some reviews….I found lighter skin tone girls appreciating it and darker one not liking it that much..Although i don’t have much of dark circles but fair skin here i mean not Indian fair but kind of American fair and that is the reason what might be a must have product for foreign bloggers doesnt work for us even if we get the shade matching our skin type.

  3. Nice review, would skip this then ! u r looking very pretty in ur last pic, i loved the way u r highlighting ! i need to do more practice where highlighting is concerned 🙂
