Product Review: L’OREAL Paris LUMI Glotion Glow Enhancer

Lumi Glotion

This is my go-to, my ride or die, my very favorite “foundation” ever. I used the quotation marks because this isn’t technically a foundation.

The L’OREAL website says

The highlighting formula delivers an illuminating color tint to enhance our skin’s natural glow”

With Glotion you are able to get a glow over your whole face with just one product without having to use several highlighting products. Since it is also buildable, you can determine how much “glow” you desire on your face. This product makes it look like you are a makeup artist with a major in highlighting, when in fact, if you’re like me, you aren’t!

I’d classify this as more of a tinted moisturizer than a foundation. It provides a light coverage, but not translucent.

This product comes in 4 different shades | FAIR, LIGHT, MEDIUM, DARK |. So, you do have to find the one that matches your skin tone the most for the look that you want to achieve. This isn’t a one-size-fits-all kind of thing. Not every color will work with every girls skin tone, but I believe that there is a shade for every girl. I have both a winter and summer shade depending on my tan level.

Another good thing about this formula is that it is hydrating. It contains glycerin and shea butter. So, it won’t dry you out, but it’s not TOO hydrating for those with oily skin. This is most likely why I am drawn to this product. As I have said before I do not like to feel anything tight or heavy on my face. This one is a truly lightweight foundation option.

Glotion or “Glow Lotion” can be worn in several ways proving how versatile it is:

  • worn alone over your whole face for an allover glow | choose a shade that is lighter than your skintone
  • worn alone over your whole face for a sun-kissed look | choose a shade that is darker than your skin
  • under foundation | choose a shade closest to your skin tone (my preferred way to wear it under my powder)
  • at certain target areas for a more luminous effect | choose a shade that is lighter than your skin tone

I have worn this both alone and under powder. Alone it does have a certain highlighting aspect to it that when used with powder is not as noticeable. I personally LOVE the “glow” aspect of this formula but in case you don’t, powder will take that away leaving you with healthy looking skin.

For me I love this year round, but in case you want more coverage in winter and less in summer. This is PERFECT for summer. This does in fact scream summer to me. I can wear this all day long and still look the same at the end.

I’m hoping that I am conveying how EASY this product is to use. I mean it is foolproof. You can’t mess this up. You can even apply this with your fingers, which I do, you don’t even have to use a beauty blender or foundation brush.

If you are a girl that needs\wants\requires medium to full coverage this wouldn’t be something that you would choose to wear on it’s on. Perhaps under your foundation or as a highlighter but alone it wouldn’t give you the coverage that you might desire.

My Recommendation

GET THIS stuff! I love it. Glotion is absolutely on my TOP 10 List of Must Have Makeup Products!
