RMS Beauty Living Luminizer Review Swatches

Very few popular products have lived up to my expectations, and this is one of the few. It is truly as gorgeous as people say. Here are my thoughts about it:

Color: I was afraid the color would be too cool and too shimmery; instead, it goes well on my warm, golden skin, and it does not look shimmery at all, but “glowy” and shiny. It is definitely more on the white/pearl side, (in fact its color reminds me a lot of the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Pearl). In fact, I plan to try the RMS Beauty Eyeshadow in Lunar, which appears to be very similar in consistency, but more on the gold side.

Consistency: It has a glossy, creamy texture that blends very easily. The jar is so little because you really do not need much. I recommend adding as you go, rather than attempting to blend a large amount all at once.

Staying power: I believed that its lasting power depends on your skin type and where you apply it. It lasted all day on my cheekbones and eyelids, while it looked a bit more “oily” on the bridge of my nose toward the end of the day. (I have normal-to-combo skin).

Packaging: Comes in a little glass jar that feels sturdy enough to be thrown in your purse!

Ingredients: Ingredients include all organic: castor oil, coconut oil, rosemary essential oil, and non-GMO tocopherol (vitamin E). For the full list of ingredients please refer to SpiritBeautyLounge.

Price: $38. You can purchase it from SpiritBeautyLounge.

My final thoughts: I wear this product every single day. Whether I go for a minimal make-up look, or a special occasion look, this product adds the perfect touch to my skin. I have never liked any highlighter as much I like this one. I will definitely repurchase it.

    I love the idea of this product- a luminous, glowing look. Unfortunately, I have oily skin (t-zone) that is shiny by noon which I control with blotting paper. You mentioned it looked oily on the bridge of your nose. Do you think this product would exacerbate an oily complexion or still be flattering, at least for the duration of a work day?

    @Anonymous: Hi and thank you for your comment. My answer to your question is: it really depends on your skin. Some people use coconut oil based products (this product contains coconut oil) and they do very well with it, while others break out because of it, or just get more oily. So there is a possibility that this product would accentuate your problem. How does your facial skin normally react to using oils? In alternative, you could try the other highlighter I reviewed, the W3LL PEOPLE Universalist Stick in #2. It has a different formula that contains silica, and may be more flattering on somebody with oily skin. I recommend ordering small samples of both and see which one works best for you. W3LL PEOPLE sells samples of their products on their website (w3llpeople.com), and Spirit Beauty Lounge also sells samples of the RMS Beauty Living Luminizer (spiritbeautylounge.com) Hope it helps, xx

    do you prefer this over Becca products ? i love their highlighter/luminizer, but am switching over to ‘green’ brands. i like the idea of less and minimal. the becca highlighter is a massive size. thank you!

      Hi Yael, although the Living Luminizer comes in a small jar you only need the tiniest amount for each use, so it can last you for a very long time! (I still have the same jar in these photos and it is still half-full!) I do prefer this one over Becca because this is made with all natural ingredients, yet it looks beautiful on the skin. I just saw a video of Lisa Eldridge on Youtube a few days ago and she is using RMS Beauty too! ;)
