I had picked up a highlighter from L’Oreal last year and had really loved it and used that one up completely. It was my “to-go” highlighter for parties and weddings. I am not a big fan of liquid illuminators/highlighters, but somehow the L’Oreal one. The shade that I had picked up last time was “Rose Gold,” so this time, I chose up “Golden” shade. Read on for more details on this highlighter:
$12.99/Rs 870 for 20 ml.

My Experience with L’Oreal Paris True Match Lumi Liquid Glow Illuminator Golden:
The L’Oreal illuminator comes in a very pretty, sleek, inverted tube. The tube is travel friendly. It has a little nozzle which lets out only a very little amount of illuminator.
This range has 3 shades – I have reviewed “Rose” and this one is “Golden.” I love how they have added 3 very different shades of illuminators so that women can pick either of the three according to their complexion and skin tone. The pricing is very nice and it is from a good brand, so I am happy about that.
“Golden” is beautiful and a perfect gold shade. It looks more like luxurious liquid gold. This gold is perfect for all skin tones; however; it will complement medium to dusky skin tones beautifully and give the face a nice warm glow. It has fine gold particles which totally manages to give you that “celebrity glow.” The consistency is thick, but when blended, it is extra smooth. It blends very nicely on my skin and an even layer is created which looks great. It does not irritate my skin, in fact, I cannot feel anything on my skin, which is great.
The gorgeous illuminator gives my face an amazing glow with added warmth. My skin gets transformed in seconds. This surely imparts a nice celebrity-like glow to my skin, much-needed for this festive season. This can be a perfect product to get that every day glow and also to wear on special occasions too.
This illuminator can be used either alone or with your regular foundation. It brightens up my face amazingly. It does not let oil seep through on my face since this stays for more than 5 hours. The shimmers in it look really nice, but they become very much visible after a while. Also, women with dry skin will have to properly prep and exfoliate their faces prior to application, otherwise this highlighter will accentuate dry patches. This one is a very nice product that lives up to all its claims, so try it if you want to look all glow-y.

Would I Repurchase/Recommend L’Oreal Paris True Match Lumi Liquid Glow Illuminator Golden?
I said I would not repurchase this illuminator in the “Rose” review, but then I picked up this “Golden” variant. So yes, I would repurchase. And if you want a liquid highlighter, then do try this! I still liked the rose gold one more 😛
