Lumiere Cosmetics Review

A little while back Lumiere Cosmetics were reaching out to Bloggers over their Twitter page, offering us a chance to review some of their products. All of the Lumiere products are mineral based which is quite good for the skin as the lightness of the powder allows the skin to breathe. They are an American based company but do ship to the UK and their products are bargainous! I contacted them and was sent seven samples which consisted of 2 foundations, 2 blush and 3 eye pigments. They chose the pigment shades with the use of a questionnaire that they had emailed to me and I must say, they were pretty spot on! 
Top Row, L-R: Luminesse, Cashmere, Fresh Roses, Neutral Pink. 
Bottom Row, L-R: Soft Brown, Ditto, Espresso. 
Lets start with the foundations. The two I received were both in the 'Light Medium Beige' category and the two shades were 'Cashmere' and 'Luminesse' with luminesse being slightly darker than cashmere. If I didn't suffer from acne I would definitely be using this on a regular basis however I do feel like I need a lot more coverage. The shades are literally like my skin colour in a pot which is lovely! They apply really well and look so nice, If you have nice skin that doesn't require full coverage then these would be perfect for you. Full size prices range from $12 for a Large pot - $18 for a XLarge pot.
Currently I have a slight obsession with blushes so when I saw the shades 'Neutral Pink' and 'Fresh Rose' I was very happy! My favourite has to be 'Neutral Pink' which is so wearable and gives a beautiful natural pink colour to the cheeks. I feel that the 'Fresh Rose' colour is a shade that needs to be built up as it can come out a bit bright. Both are very pigmented and very pretty shades. Full size price is $12 and will last you a lifetime.
Finally, my favourites, the eye pigments! Lumiere have picked the three best colours ever, all of them are super pigmented and apply so easily! Even better is that they can all be worn together as a combination. 'Ditto' is a really nice neutral cream colour which I would use as a highlight. 'Soft Brown' is exactly as its named, its a buildable colour so I can be as light or dark as you would like. I would wear this colour over the lid quite lightly. 'Espresso' is my favourite shade of the three. It has a subtle blue glitter mixed into the colour and it is so freaking pretty! I use this colour on the outer third of my eyelid. Full size price is $8.
Overall, Lumiere products are such good value for money and are very pigmented. On their website they offer a range of foundation shades for all different skin types as well as shadows, eye pigments, pallets, liners, lip products and so much more! So get yourselves over there are take a look around, I guarantee they will have something suitable for you!

The samples were sent to be by Lumiere but they are not compensating me for this post. All opinions are 100% my own. X
