Lumiere Cosmetics

After hearing many good things about indie mineral makeup brand, Lumiere Cosmetics, I thought it was about time that I tried for myself. A sale certainly sweetened the deal :) Along with the classy name, the site and products have a classy look. There are many products on offer, covering most makeup and skincare needs. The website is easy to navigate, and in no time I had a couple of things on their way to me. My order came in a reasonable amount of time, packed well.

As you can see, I didn't place a huge order, I just wanted to try a couple of things. I love that you can order mini tubes of lip gloss. I have so many lip colours that I've bought full sizes of that I won't use, so it's great to try something a bit smaller before committing to a bigger size. As for the eye shadows, I bought minis, which is the average size of most full sized mineral makeup eye shadow jars. There is a larger option available.

FOLIAGE- Tarnished green/gold.

PEPPERMINT PATTY- Chocolate brown with green shift.

MYSTERIOUS- Dark taupe shimmer.

KHAKI- Olive green shimmer.

I seemed to have needed a green/brown hit, lol. I loved the square jars, I think it gives them that classy look, or is it that I'm so used to the round eye shadow jars?? The eyeshadows are fantastic. Adhere well and pigmented. I found them easy to apply and blend.

HOT & READY RED lip gloss- Sheer pinky red.

TAHITIAN CORAL lip gloss- Sheer coral pink.

The mini glosses come in small tubes with doe foot applicator. The glosses feel lovely and moisturising on the lips. They are not too tacky. The glosses I bought are quite sheer, but add lovely shine and shimmer. Perfect on natural lips, or over lipstick :)

I thought that I would give one of the Ultimate Eyeliners a try. I have plenty of eyeliners, but after some rave reviews, I decided that I "needed" one. I bought the shade, Meteor. I am so glad that I did, as this is one of the best pencil liners that I have used. Not only do they have great pigment, but are so smooth and effortless to apply. 

I am wearing Foliage inner lid, Khaki on lid, Mysterious in crease and I lined with Peppermint Patty. The pic with the closed eye is blurry, but shows the lovely shimmer in the shadows.

I am so pleased with the products from Lumiere Cosmetics. Perfect makeup to take you from everyday wear to a night out. Next on my wishlist from Lumiere is some mineral foundation :)


  1. I have never tried the Lumiere products either, but they look and sound great!

  2. I know! I don't know why it took me so long to purchase something :)
