Just want to say a great big thank you to Lumiere Cosmetics... Literally, these samples have changed my life! Haha. Seriously, I never thought I would like mineral make-up as I expected it to be too powdery and matte, I didn't think it would have much staying power, and I was also worried about the amount of coverage it might give. I am a complete and utter convert! Lumiere is light, comfortable and most importantly, attractive. With a good primer underneath (I used my Garnier BB Cream and also my Guerlain gold primer both listed below...) this product goes on beautifully and stays put for most of the day. An occasional top up might be necessary following sports or some other kind of strenuous physical exercise but generally this is now one of my favorite brands for foundation and blush. The eye shadows are lovely too, although no different than Barry M's Dazzle Dust, Benefits Lust Duster and other pigment shadows, although the product is slightly finer than those. Even with this in mind though, the colours are so vivid and a little goes a long way so this brand is great for getting your money's worth and not having to use a ton of product for one look. Anyway, enough of my gushing about how much I love this brand...
