L'oreal Lumi Magique: Highlighing Pen
The L'oreal Lumi Magique highlighting pen helps to brighten the appearance of eyes, cover any imperfections and highlight cheekbones, brow bones and the cupid's bow. I have really got on well with this product. It comes in three shades, light medium and dark - I went for the medium. It may seem that the shade range is quite small but I think as they are easily blend-able, there will be a shade for everyone! I have found it to be great under my eyes as it is light and easy to use. The applicator is really gentle which is what you need in the delicate under-eye area. I don't tend to use it on my brow bones or cheeks because I go for a highlighter instead but I am sure it would work great there too! It does last a while but I do like to re-apply a couple of time throughout the day. As you can see from the swatch on the bottom picture, it does reflect the light really well and highlights the applied area. The packaging is also great with a secure lid, great twisting mechanism and expensive-looking gold appearance.
I am sure that from my previous experience, it doesn't match up to the Touche Eclat, however, it comes a close second and at only £8.49 it is worth a try. After trying out the similar products I think that if I had not come across this, I would have been much more tempted to get the more expensive Touche Eclat.
What do you think - Are there any other products that come close to the more expensive versions and what do you think of this if you have tried it?
