When I did my research for trying some drugstore foundations, I found Finnish brand Lumene. They do some great foundations and their Natural Glow foundation sounded right up my street. So let’s review the Lumene Natural Glow foundation.
I had personally never heard of this brand, so I was very excited to try them. Their foundations seem to be quite light and that is what had me intrigued. This formula promises to be nice and glowy so let’s see how I got on.
Review: Lumene Natural Glow foundation Light
This Lumene foundation is not the cheapest. It retails from anything between €17.50 and €22 depending on where you buy it from. So for a drugstore foundation that may seem expensive but then again, that’s what a L’Oreal foundation goes for here as well. In general EU prices are a bit higher than elsewhere.
What does this have to offer?
So this foundation claims to offer a natural coverage that should hydrate the skin at the same time. It is claimed this product has some ‘Nordic’ and ‘Arctic’ ingredients. But I am usually quite skeptical of those kinds of claims. It just has to work and then I am happy.
What this gives you is a super lightweight base. The coverage is light to medium but it feels very nice on the skin. The thin texture makes it super easy to blend and it looks very pretty on the skin. The shade is also spot on.
What does this look like on the face?
I absolutely love this base. The coverage it gives is exactly how I like it. It evens out my skin tone, but it still looks like skin. There is still some redness, but for the most part it has all disappeared. This doesn’t look dry, this doesn’t look cakey and it wears all day.
What is the shade match like?
Talking about a perfect match! Since I bought this online it was a bit of a gamble, but the shade light is exactly right for me. And the best part: this comes in even lighter shades. Granted, the shade range isn’t great with just 8 shades available so that is definitely a downside to this foundation.
Should you buy the Lumene Natural Glow foundation?
For an online purchase by a brand I had never tried before, this is definitely a great surprise. I think this may be one of the best drugstore foundations I have ever tried. Yes it’s more expensive than most drugstore foundations but I love what this does for my skin.
This doesn’t feel heavy, yet it feels very moisturzing on the skin. Even after a full day of wear this still looks great, feels great and it doesn’t looks crepey or cakey at all.
If there is a drugstore foundation that feels and performs like a high end foundation it would be this one. This is as good as foundation that I have paid twice or triple the amount of money for. This is a good one!
