Luxurious Liquid Luminizers, Part III: Drugstore Brands

Welcome to the third and final installment of Luxurious Liquid Luminizers. This segment features my favorite drugstore brands which give you the same type of gorgeous glow at a fraction of the cost!

Bare It All Lustrous Lotion by Revlon, $13, is a limited edition with its own special carved out area in the Revlon section of your drugstore. It is a unique formula made from ultra refined pearls that is easily blend-able. You can either use it alone, or mix it into your foundation for all over illumination. Available in four shades; peachy tease, buff love, pinkaboo and goldilooks.

For more luxurious liquid luminizer drugstore brands,

Neutrogena Shimmer Sheers All Over Color, $8.19, creates the most subtle of highlights on your face. It is made from a weightless and sheer oil free, fragrance free, non-sticky and non-greasy formula. It contains anti-oxidants, aloe vera and vitamins A and E to help nourish your skin. Also, it won't clog your pores. Available in six shades.

Almay Face Brightener, $12.49, is a lightweight and sheer SPF 15 moisturizer with light reflecting crystals. It is intended to even out your skin tone as well as revitalize dehydrated skin. It is oil free and contains aloe vera and vitamins A and E so even the most sensitive skin can handle this one. Available in three neutral shades.

I totally agree with RCLdesigngirl. I've tried a number of luminizers and they all seem to highlight my flaws rather than giving me that gorgeous glow I expect.

If you only put the luminizer on your brow bones and upper cheekbones it looks great! I love High Beam by Benefit. :)

thanks for those thoughts- I was somewhat intrigued but not really enthused about emphasizes any flaws.

I agree, I feel like these would just emphasize the shiney spots on my face rather than make me glow.

I've found that luminizers tend to highlight the flaws in my skin...kind of like using a semi-gloss paint on an imperfect wall's better to use flat paint to hide the flaws. So, I guess I'm sticking to no luminizers.
