bareMinerals The Shining Moment Luminizer
For Just One Shining Moment You’ll Glow
bareMinerals The Shining Moment Luminizer ($26.00 for 0.30 oz.) is described as a “golden champagne.” It’s a light-medium yellow gold with a pearly sheen. Chanel Routes des Indes de Chanel is extremely similar. Guerlain Terracotta Sun in the City is darker, more orange-gold.
On warmer complexions, this will be incredibly complimentary. On cooler complexions, I think it will still work, but there’s a chance it might turn orange-y so you may want to try before you buy. It read true yellow gold without any orange/red tones when I swatched it and looked at it in the pan. The texture is similar to the Ready eyeshadows, though this felt not quite as dense/buttery.
It was very finely-milled, soft to the touch, and blended beautifully on the skin. It gave a glowing sheen, and it didn’t emphasize pores or the texture of the skin. The payoff was true-to-pan, so depending on your application, it could be applied heavily or lightly, because it would smooth and even out easily. It lasted nine hours without fading when I tested the wear. bareMinerals continues to impress me with their Ready range; the wear is impeccable, rich in pigmentation, and extremely blendable and easy to use.
