I once had a luminizer I really loved: LORAC Perfectly Lit Oil-Free Luminizing Powder, 0.35oz., US$32.00. It was the perfect product with soft shimmer; but now that I am on a budget, I am always on the lookout for a comparable product at a lower price. Enter SEPHORA COLLECTION Microsmooth Luminizer in 02 Light Beam. This shade is identical to LORAC’s in Spotlight, a warm beige that blends into my BO10/BE03 skin tone without looking too obvious.

SEPHORA COLLECTION Microsmooth Luminizer in 02 Light Beam is made in Italy and offers a very soft shimmer. It isn’t oil-free (it contains Jojoba oil which is skin friendly) like LORAC’s but it is a great all-over luminizer. The shimmer is very subtle and it gives your skin a soft focus glow.

I do find that where I apply this, I end up with a slight oily film a few hours into the application. It’s not major, but as this isn’t oil-free, I guess that is the price to pay. I don’t have oily skin but with this I have to blot my skin a few times during the day because of this. Overall, it’s a nice little product. At US$12 this is a good product to have, though I still prefer LORAC’s.
