I don't use primers but I did find a sample of this product in a magazine and decided to try it out.
~Definitely keeps your makeup in place
~Provides a light glow
~Feels moisturizing...good for dry skin
~Seems to withstand moisture
~This did nothing to even out my skin tone despite the ad claims
~When I applied powder over the top, the "glow" disappears
Overall, I'm personally not sold on this product as my current foundation doesn't call for a primer. Also, as someone with combo skin, I definitely don't need any more "illumination". However, I can see this product being useful for those who need a little help keeping their makeup intact or need a been of sheen to their skin.
Not a bad product. Just not for me.

Best primer ever. Does everything advertised. It makes your face glowy and picture perfect. However, it does kind of makes your face appear an itsy little bit lighter. It goes along perfectly with your foundation. It makes your face more glowy so your makeup looks better (: LOVE this primer.

I love this product. I have a bit of a summer glow going on already so I can smooth this on and go. Has a pearly color to it which gives your skin a dewy glow. I personally don't think I can live without this product! I have mixed it with a tinted moisturizer to give more coverage when I was using it in the winter months. Great product that I hope never goes away.
P.S. Anyone else have the problem with it being a bit runny? I usually just shake it and it seems fine but a few times I have squirted it onto the back of my hand, it came out thin and runny without much of the solution. I don't think it is anything to worry about, I like the product enough to overlook this.

I put this on the back of my hand at Target and thought: holy crap, I look like one of those sparkle vampire kids! I hastily went to rub it away, and it smoothed out to a nice, dewy finish and I was quite impressed, its actually not sparkly at all. I bought it and it's awesome on my face under foundation! I'm glad I gave it a chance. It performs well and the price was right!

Me and my friend bought this yesterday as it was 2 for £14 in Boots and as I don't have a primer I thought it'd be worth a try. Swatching it on my hand it feels smooth and looks lightly pearlescent. Put it on this morn under my makeup and its now after 2pm, I'm usually an oil slick by now but I still look nicely mattified!

I have used several primers in the past, from Smashbox to Avon and yes they were nice, but i found them rather thick and "stifling". This primer is different. One pump is needed for my whole face. I dont notice anything spectacular before i put my foundation on (Lancome Teint Idole 24h) but once my makeup is on i can see a difference. I use Samantha Chapmans stippling brush and this combined with this primer gives a flawless airbrushed look!!! I feel much more confident with this primer on underneath. Also it doesnt feel like i have anything on under my foundation which is fab!!
Im only 3 hours into my day and my makeup still looks lovely. Ill update at the end of the day!

I always like to try drugstore face primers because they cost so much in high end stores. I'm always looking for a cheaper option! L'oreal claims that this is a "light infusing primer" that will "highlight specific areas of the face to create a sculpted effect". These claims were definitely true in my opinion. This primer gives a beautiful dewy sheen to the skin. Its not shimmery or glittery, which I like. Its great to make the skin look young and fresh. You could even use this as a liquid highlighter if you put a bit more. If you look at the swatch closely you can see the little shimmers!

I was attracted by the new display and I decided to try this product even though it was not on sale. I think it was about $17 which is pricey but at age 60+ I need all the help I can get.
I am very happy with the luminous look I get with this product. I tried using it as a primer all over the face, but it works better over foundation, just dotted on the areas I want to illuminate. It then gives a slightly sculptured look, based on illusion, but all makeup is illusion and this one helps tremendously. I put it on the cheekbones, bridge of the nose, forehead, and chin, and it gives a nice, subtle highlighted and luminous look - just as it promises.
Time will tell how long it lasts, but I really enjoy this product. It is a very small pump bottle, but that is good because I put a drop on my hand and apply it that way. There is no waste and no contamination. Excellent product!
Edit: August 14, 2012: I have used this product regularly since buying it in May. Yesterday I found it had separated and no amount of shaking will make the consistency right again. It was a creamy, silvery white fluid and now it has turned to water. Only a clear liquid squirts out of the pump. This is unacceptable for a product to go bad after only 3 months. Needless to say it is going in the trash. I have to change my rating now to the lowest.

I have to admit I am not a big makeup user but as I age my very fair skin tone is becoming a little pink on my cheeks and my light "beauty" marks are becoming more noticeable. I received a sample in a Target Beauty Bag and decided to do 1/2 of my face to see if it made a difference. Quite frankly I was amazed. A little went a long way. My pores seemed smaller, the pinkness less noticeable and my beauty marks almost invisible. I even left the room, walked outside and came back in to take another look. In my younger days I had nice smooth skin which people even commented on occasionally, This product gave me a little of that back and I feel pretty again. I will definitely continue to purchase.

I got this product today at target, it was 10.99 plus tax. As soon as I got home, I washed my face, applied moisturizer and a tiny bit of the lumi primer all over my face.(By the way I use boots no7 intelligent balance mousse foundation in buff.) After applying my foundation, I went ahead and applied my blush (elf mellow mauve) and then I applied a tiny bit of the lumi primer on my highlight areas (above my cheeks, bridge of nose, cupids bow) and I have to say, I had the nicest and most subtle glow to my face. It instantly made my cheekbones stand out and I had my window open to let the natural light hit me and it wasn't too shiny or it wasn't shimmery like other highlighters/luminizers tend to do. I am very satisfied with this product. I think this is perfect for someone who is looking for a subtle highlight for the spring/summer and I really have nothing bad to say except I wish it were a couple dollars cheaper. But overall , I am so glad I went on a limb and purchased it. I will be getting again once I run out! And the great thing is that you only need the tiniest amount :] definitely try this out for yourself.

This is a great dupe for MAC Strobe Liquid. It's a bit shinier than Strobe, a bit lighter than High Beam (it's more white than cream colour). It gives your face a nice sheen and looks really nice mixed in with your foundation. On its own, it does tend to accentuate fine lines though. And if your skin is oily already, this will make you look like an oil slick.
You get quite a bit in the pump, but I think if you're looking for a highlighter in this type of formula, go for MAC Strobe instead as you get a TON more, and I think it's better dollars spent.

Is a light liquid, with a silvery-white color, and its supposed to infuse light. As a primer the first time I used it was on my T zone, to keep my fpundation in place ( I have combination skin) but a couple hours later I was all shinny. So instead im using it before foundation, only in the "highlighting" places: top of my cheekbones and my temples, and when I apply it there it works wonderful. As my foundations is tend to the contro-shine side, it makes my dry skin look fine, on those places. I wouldnt recommend it for oily skin, because it would appear more shinny, and using it only to add light, it works nice. I would buy it again, as a cheaper alternative to a highlighter, and working as that, it reminds me of Benefit's High Beam, with a slightly less pink undertone

I love this, it gives a lovely natural bright finish.
I have been wearing over the l'oreal nude magique bb cream and I am actually going without foundation, although I ahve found that the two of these products combined one after the other, give a great base for foundation!

I don't understand the hype on this one. I read the reviews, wanted to love it, made sure not to use too much, and... nothing. Maybe I am doing something wrong, but I can see no discernible difference from when I use this mixed in with my foundation and when I don't :( So sad!

Great product! Finally a illuminator/highlighter that isn't too glittery or shimmery. Perfect natural glow. All other illuminating product look so unnatural in daylight. Perfect to use under or on top of makeup. A bit pricey for a DS brand though... almost 30$ in Norway. Will repurchase.

I have had this for over a week now but have been using it every day. I am a big fan of dewy / glowing / radiant / highlighted skin and as a new Mom, I find I only have time to put on moisturizer and maybe some eyeliner in the morning. If you aren't getting that much sleep, this product is great as you look energized and radiant like a pregnancy glow. I wouldn't say it gives the dewy look though as your skin won't look wet. I use this alone or mix it in with moisturizer. It doesn't really work as a highlighter for the cheekbones alone - you would need to use a NARS multiple like copacabana for that or Revlon's spa illuminator in bare lights / benefit's high beam for that.
I dont understand what another reviewer said about it being "thick" because its the exact opposite - its actually quite runny in consistency as was the tester so I'm not sure what batch that person got. That would be my complaint actually - that it's too runny so you could waste product. You only need the tiniest pump. Second complaint is that you can't really tell when the product is going to be finished or how fast you are using it but many high end products are like that. It does exactly what it says it is going to do for your skin which is add light so for that it gets a "repurchase".

I bought This Product after trying the sample from Allure Magazine. It really gives a dewy glow to the face and seems to make my blemishes less noticeable. I like to use this product on days i don't feel like wearing makeup to give me something a little '"extra". Its a tiny pump container but for $7.00 I can't complain much. One thing I don't care for is how thick this stuff is. I tried using it over my foundation on a few spots as a highlighter; wouldn't recommend that. I just looked strange. Also wouldn't recommend using on a "day two" unclean face as it makes you look even oilier. Bottom line is I like to use this product but only in select situations. I can see how this product may be way more appealing to someone with dryer more mature skin. It's thick.

I, too, tried the sample in Allure magazine, and loved it! I just use it in the center of my face, under my makeup, to give me a nice glow. Not sparkly like some, it doesn't make me break out either, which is just great. It does seem to be moving off the shelves pretty quickly, but I bought mine at CVS, where I got $5.00 in extra bucks for buying two, and used 2- $2.00coupons. So not too bad pricewise if you get it on sale. And you don't need much, so it should last. I am so excited to find this product- I have been looking for something to replace the Agnes B product I had loved years ago. This is pretty close.

*ATTENTION*~! This product is the secret to healthy, radient, youthful, movie star, dewy glowing skin! There are not enough good things I can say about it! Life Changing! This is my skin Holy Grail! The Magic Lumi Primer doesn't say how much to use, but its smart to judge how much to use based on the size of the bottle, like 0.05oz. 1 pump does my entire face, 2 if I wanna look Xtra dewy. I apply before my foundation, which is Cover Girl & Olay Tone Rehab <~ btw..amaze-Zing! Some say mixing with your foundaton is the way to go, & I would agree if your foundation is drying. (covergirl is very hydrating) You can also appy alone which looks Great! or over finished makeup to cheekbones, nose bridge, chin & cupids bow for additional highlight.

I like this product a lot. i tend to prefer sheer foundations, so I mix a drop of lumi magique with a thick foundation and it works just as I wanted! I owned Teint MIracle from Lancome and this Lumi magique is just that lumifyng ingredient that I liked so much in that foundation. My face looks bright and perfect! Will buy againg
