Product Review: Lumiere Beauty Bar Eye Pigments

lumiere eyeshadows 01

Name: Beauty Bar Eye Pigments
Brand: Lumiere
Size: 2 gm
Price: $8.00

From Lumiere’s website:
Lumiere eye pigments come in a wonderful variety of shades and textures to complement any eye color and/or preference. Wear each shade alone or mix and match to create a custom color. They can be applied dry for a subtle look or wet/foiled to make a more dramatic appearance – this will also give you longer wear. Can be worn with or without an eye primer.

What I liked:
- available in a lot of beautiful colors
- good color payoff
- easy to blend
- longlasting
- the price

What I didn’t like:
- can crease without a primer

Recently, I’ve had the chance to try a few products from Lumiere, including their eyeshadow pigments, which are available in lots of beautiful colors. I have honey brown, which is a reddish brown with lots of honey gold shimmers, and pink satin, a soft brownish-pink.

The powder can seem a bit gritty in the pot, but it is actually finely-milled, smooth and very easy to blend. The color payoff is good too. Honey brown is very pigmented while pink satin applies quite sheer but can be built up for more intensity. The pigmentation is even better if you use them wet or with a primer.

But I think a primer is essential with these, as without, they can crease. In addition, the primer will make the colors last all day. They stay on for several hours even without a base, but then expect some fading.

The packaging is pretty and elegant and the shadows are very affordable too. The pigments are available in 1gm sample square jars with no sifter and a screw-on black lid and costs $5.00, while the full size jars, which contain 2gm and cost $8.00, have a circular shape and a sifter. They can be purchased at www.lumierecosmetics.com

Summary
Overall, Lumiere pigments are pretty good, especially considered the price. They are available in a large selection of shades, have good color payoff and, if used with a primer, will last all day and won’t crease.

Rating: 4/5

  1. I’ve heard about Lumiere but didn’t get a chance to try their products because of the price. 8 dollars for 2 grams is probably a bit more expensive than the rest of the mineral makeup out there but if the pigmentation is good then the price is fine.

  2. Dao: the pigmentation is really good. Pink satin is on the sheer side but since the color is a soft pink that’s to be expected. And it’s better than most soft pinks shades out there that don’t show up even on me and I’m very pale. Honey Brown is very pigmented and you only need a little so the jar will last for ages. It’s very wearable too.

    Shuu: I’m glad you love them too :) Honey Brown is such a gorgeous color and Midnight sounds great too. I like shadows that work well as eyeliners too :)

    Nikki: I agree, the creasing didn’t bother me much. Any good primer will fix that :)

    Anastacia: they really are. They are very wearable and perfect for all occasions :)

    Vonvon: I really like the colors too, they are beautiful and wearable. I’ll try and do a FOTD with them soon. I’m using honey brown quite a lot lately anyway. I’m usually not into brownish colors but that one I really love. Why do you hardly use them?
