After several strong reader recommendations, I decided to check out Looxi Beauty Highlighters ($7.50 for 0.20 oz. pans or $15.00 for 0.35 oz. in compact). They had quite a few in-stock when I purchased (about a week and a half ago), though it looks like some are out-of-stock or only in-stock in compacts. I’ll be testing these over the next several weeks, but here are swatches of the 17 I bought in the meanwhile!

Update: I have spent the last two weeks attempting to corroborate a story told in the comments regarding formula safety/reaction, and I have not been able to find any record of:

1.) Threads on Reddit at all regarding anything negative on Looxi for formula or customer service; the only comment I saw at all that was remotely negative was with respect to a longer turnaround/shipping time around Black Friday
2.) Records of open or closed disputes on BBB or letters or warnings issued by FDA (there is nothing when one searches for Looxi Beauty)
3.) Any indication from the larger makeup community of general issues or wrongdoing by this brand

I have also reached out to the brand owner and have been told there has been ongoing harassment and threats made with the brand owner having a cease & desist letter mailed to the user (I have a copy) (they have also stated that none of the statements were true). I have not been able to corroborate any detail from the information provided by the user. Before I try an indie or new brand, I do search through and look for any potential issues with quality, repackaging, customer service, etc. and could not find anything on this brand before I purchased. I have reached out to fellow bloggers who are more involved in the indie beauty community, and they could not recall anything either. A supporter of Looxi Beauty did provide links to their Instagram account (@maquillage_savant) with screen shots of this user making threats and various accusations and saw at least one additional Instagram user (a makeup artist) who said they were also harassed by the same user previously.

I also reached out to the user, asking them to share more information about their experience to help me get to the bottom of everything. Unfortunately, the response was unexpected – they threatened me/Temptalia multiple times (and didn’t refer to or help with this topic). I have never had reason before to investigate a reader’s claims/experiences about a product, but the claims went from “I didn’t like this product” to saying that the brand itself was acting wrongly and committing violations of cosmetic safety — both things that are important to be aware of if and when purchasing from a brand — but also have legal consequences if totally untrue and having had no luck finding additional information on my own, I thought I would best proceed with caution.

At this point, I cannot find anything that indicates there is a safety issue with the brand. There are both positive and constructive reviews on the brand, and I have not seen ongoing comments that ever refer back to an incident (as in, someone posts on Reddit’s MUA about Looxi, nothing in the comments indicates bad behavior or they wouldn’t buy, which is very common with brands that have any issues, even if minor). It is pretty hard to completely wipe out something from the internet, and there are accounts devoted to bringing awareness to questionable indie brands, but I wasn’t able to find mention of Looxi.

With respect to claims of bullying of customers, a few individuals have come forward with more detailed accounts along with providing screen shots of their communications (particularly on Instagram) with the brand and/or the brand’s supporters along with the brand owner voluntarily providing me with their side of the story. I continue to listen as new information becomes available. Concerned parties may reach me at christine[at]temptalia.com.
