What about an illuminator?
Hello everyone ! I hope you had an amazing Christmas with family or friends. As for me , I got the chance to spend my Christmas in France with my cousins . We were 18 this year !
Since I offered my mum the Josie Maran stick illuminator , I thought it would be a great idea to show you some of my favorites: low-end , middle-end and high-end . This is my period of the year where I don't powder my face but only use a bit of illuminator on my cheeks to brighten up my face.
I am going to start with this one , which is the LUMI-powder glow illuminator/ blush and highlight from L'OREAL . I got this one before coming back to France because I wanted a travel size illuminator that I wouldn't really care to loose or break in the suitcase. I got it for 14$CAN which is relatively cheap. I absolutely love it because I can use the four different colors on my eyelid as well. It has more of a bronze undertone.
This one is the URBAN DECAY naked illuminated. It is described as a "shimmering powder for face and body". I love the packaging , it comes with a little brush if you are traveling. I like the quality of this product but has more of a pink/whitish undertones. I believe you can get it for 30$ US approximately .
As for this one , I absolutely love it and had to buy it for my mum. It is called the Argan Enlightenment Illuminizing Wand by JOSIE MARAN. She loves illuminators and she travels quite a lot so i thought this little stick was super practical. You can just put it in your handbag and brighten up your face when you're on the go. You don't need any brush , and that's great ! It has organ oil in it and shea butter which give a creamy texture but not too much. Plus , Josie Maran creates organic products , that don't contain paraben nor synthetic fragrance , they are gluten free and "cruelty free on animals" as well. I believe I got it for 42$CAN.
I know I wasn't supposed to talk powder today but the GUERLAIN météorites are a product that I've always seen in my mum's beauty bag. She uses a more rosy one : 3 medium. I use a more bronzy one : Teint doré 03. This powder is very light and has a delightful fragrance . I have never been disappointed by Guerlain products. You can buy this illuminating powder for 51 euros.
Finally a swatch of the illuminators: from bottom to the top : LUMI L'OREAL - URBAN DECAY - JOSIE MARAN.
I hope you will like this post and if you have any question about these products don't hesitate to ask me! Have an amazing day !
