This Arctic Sun Highlighter from Lumene started appearing in Finnish blogs this spring and ever since I have wanted to get my hands on it. I believe this was a part of a limited edition collection last summer and now they repromoted it again. I think it's limited adition again and belive me, that made me want to buy it even more.
As we are starting to move towards winter and holiday makeup collections, I was lucky to find this highlighter on sale for 7€. It was pure happiness and I had to stop myself from buying a back up. I wanted to.
This is something really, really pretty. I also like the concept, it's a highlighting bronzer that works great as a bronzer for fair skin and as a regular highligter for medium to dark skin. It really is genious. And looks pretty too, I am in love.
For my pale skin it works great as a light bronzer, it brings some warmth to my complexion without giving me a tanned look. It also gives a really nice glow, not glittery at all but just satiny glow. That's what the package says, warm natural glow.
Here's a swatch on my not at all tanned complexion. I stayed out of the sun this past summer too, as usual :) This goes on smoothly and it's easy to blend.
I tried to capture the glow on this picture, as you can see it it very subtle and suitable for wearing all over the face, if you wish. I have done so, and it really gives a lovely warm hue and glow for my complexion. I love it and now I regret not getting that back up. This product still seems to be available but if it will be sold out, I really wish Lumene would bring this out again next summer!
Thanks for reading!
