This by far is my favorite highlighter. It doesn't contain any shimmers or sparkles, so if you're looking for something natural looking, this is your best bet. However, if you're a girl/boy with darker skin, do NOT use this product alone. It is very light and WILL look silver/ashy/obvious on the skin...which I found out the hard way. The solution? Mix a drop of this with a drop of your favorite moisturizer and apply to the areas you'd like to highlight and BOOM! you got a touch of luminosity that looks gorgeous on the skin.

This is a highlighter, not a primer. If you are expecting a primer with an illuminating finish - try MACs, it has a sensible amount of shimmer. I only use this as a liquid highlighter on my cheekbones on a night out on top of my makeup - and it is nice for that.
It is SUPER liquid - not the gel-like texture of your average primer. You would think the consistency would make the dispenser easy to operate, but if this stuff is tipped over in your makeup bag and you go to use the pump - it will likely splatter everywhere...you have been warned.
Lastly, on the colour, it is a bright white shimmer and therefore more cool toned than warm. My skin is a bit on the warm side, so I would have liked to have something a bit more on the gold side - but this is from the perspective of using it as a highlighter.
My friend is a rep for Loreal, so luckily I got this stuff for free. I wouldn't buy it.

Not in love with this product. Not to say it isn't a "good" product, it just doesn't work for what I was looking for. This is more just an illuminator, which is great to use under foundation if you have perfect skin! Me, I need a heavy duty primer - I have dark circles, blemishes, red areas, and uneven skin tone. So in the end, this product just didn't work for me. I'll bet it's beautiful on others though!

This stuff is pretty good. I received a sample of it from a cosmetician and I have to say I am pleasantly surprised. I am usually not a fan of L'Oreal products but this one I am! It reminds me of a dupe for Lancome's Eclat Miracle. This one is a bit more runny and not as shimmery as Lancome's. It just gives your face a very healthy glow without making it look like you dipped it in shimmer. You can mix it in with your moisturizer, your foundation or pat it on with a sponge.
It claims it's a primer but I wouldn't go so far as to say that's what it is. It's more of a soft illuminator.
I would recommend it for someone who wants a bit of a glow to their face, to look more well rested with hydrated skin. Be careful putting this on if your skin is remotely oil. If you put too much on it may show more of the oiliness on your face. My face is oily so I prefer to dab it on and not rub it in so much.
Because I already have so many illuminating primers, I wouldn't say this one blows my socks off. For that reason I don't see myself buying this until my other primers/illuminators are gone.

I really liked the way this product looked and felt, but unfortunately I have sensitive skin and after ewearing this for a day I got a rash all over my face. So for people with sensitive skin try something else. For those without sensitive skin though this could be good, it really made my face look brighter without being glittery or too shiny. One thing though, the product is white, so if you have medium or dark skin it's probably better to get something that's flesh colored.

I noticed several weeks ago that the dry winter air was causing my beloved Estee Lauder Double Wear to look a bit dull and mask-like, not to mention my skin had paled a bit since purchasing my foundation. Instead of buying another expensive bottle of foundation, I decided to try this.
It's amazing! I have not used it as a primer. I mix half foundation and half of this product, and it lightened my foundation to the perfect shade and gave me just the natural glow I had wanted. It's not greasy or shimmery looking -- just youthful and fresh!
My skin tends to be oily and prone to clogging, but this product hasn't caused either to happen. I don't know if I'll continue to use this during summer because of my skin type, but for winter, it's definitely a keeper!

Thank you MakeupAlley reviewers. I don't know why I didn't think of using it as a highlighter. It's certainly a better price point than the smashbox highlighter that I have.
I was prepared to come on here and lay a slap down on this product. I'm asian and not fair skinned. When I use this as a primer my face looks ashy and glittery. Then I put my foundation on and I look like the undead with a spray tan. But as a highlighter, I like.
I like the packaging. All about the pumps. Pretty small container but like I said, if you use it as a highlighter, it's cheaper than the smashbox or other products marketed as highlighters.

I just finished my first bottle of this and cant say Im too impressed. I don't like using anything to heavy on my skin so what I used to do was apply lotion with a little bit of highlighter mixed in and to be honest, that worked better than this product. I didn't feel it moisturized my skin, didnt do much in terms of a primer to set my makeup and my skin was not glowing any more than usual. I just switched to Almay smart shade primer and love it! I just dot on some highlighter after applying it and I feel like my skin is moisturized, brightened and overall looks healthier than it did when I used the Magic Lumi.

I have only used this for one week and I really like it so far. It's different from other primers because it is very liquid. It spreads really easy and takes time do dry. This product could easily pass as a highlighter, but you must spread it around and make sure the coverage is even - then let it dry for a few minutes. Once you put your foundation on, this primer does more than make everything even, the shimmer enhances your foundation making it look more 3 dimensional and natural. it provides some moisture which is great during winter. I will use this instead of my HG MUFE primer during winter because I think it will provide too much moisture during summer .

This is my first day wearing this under make-up and I'm pretty impressed. I've been feeling like my face looks dull now that winter's here but I'm afraid of "clown sparkle" primers, especially now that I'm over 55. I had a weird thing happen when I got it home and tried to open it; the entire top came off and white stuff flew everywhere. Maybe I was too eager to get to the Fountain of Youth and I yanked too hard? Anyway, I re-assembled and am very pleased with the dewy effects. No Ringling Brothers face, and I'm going to experiment with it as a highlighter. I was one phone call away from getting Botox, but this stuff may make me feel better for a while anyway. A tad expensive at $12 in the grocery store; paid $10 with a $2 coupon so will use sparingly.
