Birchbox Breakdown

The reason this highlighter is so amazing at bringing out our good features, we think, is that it has so many good features of its own. It gives skin a sheer, glowing look without excessive shine or sparkle, and i’s made with all organic, pure ingredients—like coconut oil and rosemary extract—meaning it'’s good for your skin too. The slight iridescence of its light-reflecting minerals (no disco ball effect) works to subtly reflect the light and make you look fresh-faced.

How to Use

Apply sparingly with your fingers to the highest points of your face. Blend over the cheekbones, brow bones, down the bridge of your nose and even on the bow of your lips. Experiment with other areas too—try a bit on your collarbones or eyelids.

Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, *Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, *Cera Alba (Beeswax), *Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Extract, and may contain [+/- Titanium Dioxide CI77891, Mica CI 77019]

Nice luminzer!

I'm not really big on makeup, but have been wanting to find something more natural that feels less cakey and heavy on my face. This is a really nice luminzer - creamy, but not thick or heavy, much like the rest of the rms line. It also isn't too sparkly or anything like that - just the right amount of shine to catch the light and make you look more awake. Looks nice on the eyelids, too, to kind of brighten up the eyes without using an actual eye shadow.

great subtle glow

Looks great and works well with my sensitive skin. I love that it's more of a subtle glow than most highlighters which are shimmery or glittery.

Great Dewy look

I love this luminizer. I use in on the corners of my eyes, cheekbones, and the area in between my nose and lips. It is a nice sheer look but gives you a beautiful iridescence. Love this product and the way it smells!

A different way to look at luminizers

I had heard about this product for quite some time but I was concerned about a few things... First the coconut oil base - would it make my skin break out? Nope! Second, is the shimmer really different? Yes - the shimmer is very subtle and more ethereal rather than glittery. And third, I have oily skin - will this make me look greasy? No, if you apply very sparingly. And I will also add that I apply this over powder so that the rest of my skin has a matte finish.

If you are expecting a dramatic highlight, this product might not be for you... However if you are looking for a subtle glow, add this to your cart STAT!

Subtle glow

This product creates the most subtle glow of any highlighter. It is very light and does look like light is hitting the face. I have oily skin, so I wasn't sure about it....but I use it very lightly on the cheekbones and below the eyebrows. My favorite thing about it is that it is natural and does not contain harmful chemicals.

absolutely fabulous!

I am somewhat of a minimalist for my daily makeup routine. This luminizer is subtle, not all shimmery and sparkly like some. I look instantly refreshed when I dab it on my eyelids and brow bones. The sample is huge.

I bought this after reading all of the great reviews and finding it on the Birchbox top list for 2014. I was not disappointed! I only used a little on my cheekbones and the center of my nose and I noticed a really subtle and nice effect. I love that it makes a difference and takes only a few seconds to apply. Great addition for a busy woman on the go makeup routine!

Uhm, where is it?

I was pretty excited to receive this today. I had been gawking over it for a month on Birchbox before I finally decided to break down and purchase. Alas, it arrived! To my dismay, I applied it on my face: temples/checks, bridge of nose, cupid's bow and brow bone but -- I saw nothing. I then decided to apply it to my hands with a very heavy finger and yet -- the spot just looked shiny. I get the idea that this is suppose to be a very light highlighter that isn't too noticeable, however I wasn't expecting it to be nonexistent. The living luminizer shows up more like a glossy look rather than a highlight. My co-worker and I played the game me walking under different lights and her yelling, "there!" when she could notice the glow. And even then it was VERY subtle. She has a darker complexion so I thought to try it on her and it showed up beautiful on her. She is a more chocolate skin tone -- just to give you reference. I am more of an olive skin tone. I really wanted
to love this. I'm sad that this didn't turn out as I hoped. The idea of a subtle highlighter that makes you look refreshed sounded amazing. Unfortunately, all I got was glossy :-/

Perhaps I will play with it a little more and see if I can get it to work but if not -- it looks like this best-selling product will be going back. Bummer.

I gave it two stars for the moisturizing factor. You lucked out on that one, Living Lum, lol.

Effortless glow

I absolutely love "RMS beauty Living Luminizer!" This luminizer is perfection for achieving that effortless healthy glow without looking like you dipped your face in a pile of pure shimmer. It has great skincare benefits as it is made with coconut oil and Rosemary extract. It's like putting on skincare that makes you instantly luminous. I would definitely wear this on a "quote on quote - no to to very little make up day." It instantly makes your face more awake. I like to use above my cheek bone, above my curds now, down the bridge of my nose, and sometimes a little dab in the center of my lower lip for extra lushness.

Beauty must have

This luminizer is the most natural looking makeup I own. When I first got it I used too much of the product but after owning it for several months I have fine tuned the way I apply it and it makes SUCH a difference. Personal I apply it best over heavy foundation with a concealer brush, gently dabbing it under my eyes, brown bown, cupid's bow, and over the top of my cheek bones. If you don't like wearing much make up at all you could apply this with your fingers in all of those places, curl your eyelashes, and have an amazing low-makeup look! Perfect for summer, winter, fall, spring, SUCH an amazing year round product!
