As soon as I saw the new Ready Luminiziers from bareMinerals I knew we would have a long love affair. I am not the biggest highlighter fan and, in fact, often forget to use one, but since I got this baby, I have been religiously wearing it every single day.
There are two Luminiziers in bareMinerals' Ready range - The Love Affair (a shimmering warm nude pink) and The Shining Moment (a shimmering yellow gold).
At first I was convinced The Love Affair would be more 'me' as I often shy away from golden hues and find a lot of them just don't look that great on my pale complexion. However... I have, surprisingly, fallen for The Shining Moment. It's got to be the first "golden" highlighter that works so well on me.
The Shining Moment is a beautiful light golden champagne shade. It is not at all orange and looks very natural. Finely milled, soft and long wearing, the formula is a true winner. Another bonus is that it is very hard - if not impossible - to overdo it with this highlighter. The golden sheen it gives to my cheekbones - even when applied with a heavier hand - could be described as "subtle" and "flattering". It isn't overloaded with shimmer, but has just enough of it to create that natural glowy effect.
Here is a swatch of The Shining Moment:
I usually apply a dusting of The Shining Moment onto my cheekbones, on top of my blusher, and find it really lifts up my complexion and makes me look radiant. I have, somehow, become totally addicted to this highlighter - something that rarely happens when it comes to illuminationg products. The colour, formula and wear are all superb.
