Questions & Answers for LORAC Perfectly Lit Oil-Free Luminizing Powder

Question
Shade for me?
Hi! I have very fair skin, brown hair, and blue eyes. I am deciding between golden cream and golden brown. Is the golden brown like a bronzer? Is the golden cream pinkish? I can't tell over the computer?!

I would go with golden cream, the other two shades are both too dark on me( i'm NC20-25), but if you want to use it on your cheeks as a bronzer/highlighter, spotlight is a really great color.

Both of those might have too much brown in them for you, unless you want to use it as a bronzer, which has way too much shimmer in it for that. Try the lightest shade.

I have the exact same description (fair, brunette, blue eyes) and I would go for "Luminous" (cream). I bought "Spotlight" during an $8 checkout deal, and it's a little too dark for me - I have to use it very sparingly. With that in mind, Luminous should be perfect!

I haven't seen the golden brown, but I have the golden cream (luminous) color. It is not at all pink, but instead exactly as the name implies, a creamy golden color. It sounds like I have similar coloring as you and I love this color.

answer 2
I've never used a luminizer before, but I've been so impressed with this. I got the Spotlight shade, which is a touch darker than my regular skin tone. I used the Sephora Collection Complexion brush to apply it rather than the sponge that came in the compact, and it goes on very smoothly and evenly, like a cross between a bronzer and a power foundation. It feels weightless and doesn't clog your pores. I don't apply it to my t-zone, since it does tend to - obviously - go glowy and shiny, but on my cheekbones and browbone, it adds a really healthy boost.

answer 5
Actually, I find that it does provide some light, sheer coverage.

I would describe it as more coverage than a translucent powder, but less than a sheer powder foundation. It sort of smooths out your skin tone and blends everything together.

Sometimes you'd like a nude face without a full foundation, etc., but you've got your eyes done and everything and you look kind of unfinished or not as smooth-toned as you like. I would recommend this for that kind of situation.

The adage "you, only better" comes to mind when using this powder on its own.

answer 5
I actually use a large, fluffy blush brush to apply it. This is so that I can buff it into the skin, but in a way that looks even, flawless, and natural.
For an extra bit of highlight, I squeeze the brush at the end so it becomes flatter, and I dab the powder on.
For the browbone, I use the pad that comes with the compact and swipe it across.
Hope this helps.

Personally, I have very sensitive skin that tends to breakout, even with some higher end brands. However this has not caused any problems whatsoever, and in fact helps keep my skin matte while still giving a glow. It's free of synthetic ingredients and chemicals that tend to irritate acne-prone skin, so you can feel confident at least giving it a shot :)

Question
What color do you suggest I purchase.
I'm not near a Sephora store so I rely on your website. Would you recommend the Lorac Luminizing Powder for a 55 year old with dryish, light-medium tone skin. I wear L. Mercier Illuminating tinted moisturizer and like to set it with a light dusting of powder. Is this the product you'd recommend to help give that youthful glow or would another be better? I am also looking for a luminizing cream such as Highbeams offers. There is a Lorac luminizer that you're out of on-line. Any others you'd suggest to get that moist-dewey-radiant look above the cheekbones? Thank you!

I would highly recommend TARTE's SMOOTHE OPERATOR Illimunizing serum. It leaves you with a perfectly smooth, dewy complexion & it has a sheer tint to it that makes it work great as a tinted moisturizer. I am 41 with light/medium on the dry side skin & this covers great, smooths fine lines & catches the light. I am not sure if it is available yet as I got this in November in a trial for their new products...but look for it by itself or listed in the gift sets or value sets. Now, for the LORAC Luminizing Powder; I have this in SPOTLIGHT & love it for highlighting & over my concealer in the corners of my eyes to detract from my hereditary dark circles. However, I try to avoid getting it on the fine lines near my eyes unless I use TARTE product above or a rich moisturizer first. As a rule, powder should be used sparingly on dry and/or aging skin because it does tend to settle in lines but with proper moisturizers/balms & a light handed brush you can look radiant!

I just purchased this product in Radiant and I love it. It gives a nice dewy look to the skin and works well over foundation. I personally use Bare Minerals foundation in Light and use this powder over it on my cheekbones, forehead, and chin to give me that "glow from within" by highlighting the center of my face. I think you will love this product too!

I can't exactly help you with the shade part, because I got a shade that is no longer being made, but I have to say that I just love this product for the exact reason that you mention in the other part of your question: it gives a dewy, radiant look to any part of your face that you want to highlight, especially the cheekbones. And the nice thing is that it's shiny, but not really reflective, so people don't actually notice that you're wearing a highlighter. It gives a natural, dewy glow, and smooths imperfections.
Plus, it lasts all day.
I love this product.

Lorac - Perfectly Lit - Luminous color? 2720?
I got from Sephora a Lorac - Perfectly Lit - Luminous in color # 2720, in 2008 Burlingame, CA. It has a silver compact. I love it and need another one.
What color is that? It is not on your product list. Do they make it any more?
You do have Lorac - Perfectly Lit Oil free - Luminizing powder in three colors. This has the same silver case as my product.

I am a green eyed, Redhead turning Strawberry blond with redhead skin.
I use this product as a high lighter for high cheek bones, touch under eye circles & upper outside of eye lids.

It sounds as if you may have an older product version. These compacts are actually "pearl white", not silver, and even the manufacturer's website lists only three shades (the same three Sephora lists on its site). You may want to check these out in person to see which shade works best for you.

I am medium/light and luminous works fine for me. I've also found, since this is colorless, you can add a bit of colored pressed powder over this if you need to darken it a little. The glow still shows though if applied lightly.

I have medium skin, and the color Spotlight is great. Since it's pigmented, shimmery, but sheer, you can build up color or use a light sweep and it'll blend with your natural color very nicely. I recommend using a brush to put it on though otherwise it goes on really unevenly.

I've found that it works best to apply your usual powder as normal on your face, but go a little lighter on the places where you'll be sweeping the Lorac powder as putting too much poweder on leads to an odd-looking texture. But definately apply your blush and bronzer before-hand, just make sure that, as I previously mentioned, that you don't put too much powder on before the Lorac powder.

I hope this has helped! Good luck! :)

I would not actually use it to replace all-over powder or setting powders. I would use it as a highlight instead. It's very shimmery and while it does add a nice glow, I think than an all-over application would lead to the appearance of a shiny, oily skin rather than radiant.

answer 6
We recommend trying different ways of applying the powder to see what works best for you. Try it all over or just on cheekbones, over or under blush or bronzer. Highlighters and luminizers are typically applied last because you don’t want to cover the luminous sheen they impart. These shades are sheer, so a light amount will simply add a beautiful, shimmering, glow to any color you have applied before hand. Again, these are just tips so feel free to play and experiment!
