Golden Hour

L’Oreal Golden Hour True Match Lumi Glow Amour Glow Boosting Drops ($14.99 for 0.28 oz.) is a medium-dark gold with warm, orange undertones and fine, golden pearl. It yielded subtle, yellowish warmth and a fine, luminous sheen. It had sheer coverage, which did not build up beyond semi-sheer. The consistency was thin, seemingly oily from what I could feel, which helped it spread easily across the skin but made it take longer to dry down. The highlighter lasted for seven hours on me before turning a bit patchy and migrating, though I also noticed it was more prone to breaking down foundation faster than the average highlighter/blush.

Formula Overview

$14.99/0.28 oz. - $53.54 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to create a "highlighted, dewy glow" on the skin that can be worn alone or added into "skincare, foundation, and makeup." It is supposed to have "buildable luminosity" with a "thin texture." There are two shades, and though the pink one is touted as "cool," it's really a warm-toned pink, just very light. The consistency has a thin, almost oily feel so it was emollient and could spread easily across the skin, but it seemed to take a bit longer to dry down while it sank into the skin more noticeably. It wasn't as dewy after the initial application as I would have expected, and the amount of pearl was moderate with a fine size, so it ended up as a rather subtle highlighter--which may or may not work for you. They wore around seven hours on me, and they did not lift my foundation but seemed to make it wear away faster in that area than normal. Worth noting, the full retail price of these seems unusually high, given the amount of product in the bottle, so it would be one I'd look to catch on sale.

I love the idea of liquid highlighters but like liquid blush I don’t reach for them as often as I will powders. Loreal is getting a little pricey with this one. I have a tube of Loreal Lumi glow liquid highlighter that I like when I think to wear it. I’m sure it was around $10

Yeah, I was surprised at the price point since a lot of drugstore/budget brands are releasing liquid highlighters that this seemed high for L’Oreal!

With the glut of liquid highlighters of late, there is already a pretty high bar set. I’m just not feeling this one. Not when we’ve seen some really unique and well-performing from Makeup Revolution, Nyx and Cover FX. WnW, too.

I was so worried about the consistency on these! When I looked at them in store they seemed so liquidy and thin in the bottle!
