Archive: RMS Beauty – Living Luminizer

A product that surely needs very little introduction, Living Lumizer is a real cult favourite and one of the few organic make-up products which has made it big time – Meghan Markle and Kourtney Kardashian are both rumoured to be fans.

For those of you not in the know, Living Luminizer (£39.00) is a highlighter (or illuminator) and is the best selling product of the RMS Beauty collection. A champagne coloured (kinda white with gold bits) cream with a sheer satin pearl finish, it also works on pretty much every skin tone I have tried it on thus far.

Rich in raw, organic coconut oil and castor seed oil both of which nourish the skin (and are also known for their anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties), plus the inclusion Vitamin E means that it is a real skin pleaser. Do not be fooled by it’s rich and creamy, coconut-y formulation, Living Luminizer is neither greasy or sticky.

Conventional (and many natural) Highlighters are frequently over shimmery and contain large glitter particles which make them too obvious and can look a little odd at the end of the day. The beauty of this is that It is subtle. Living Luminizer’ sheer formulation gives the illusion of a natural, radiant glow, enhancing features rather than making the wearer look like an extra from an early 80’s Meatloaf video (I’m thinking Dead Ringer For Love in particular)…

Worn over tinted moisturiser, foundation or even neat on the skin, you can apply it with a brush however Living Luminizer works best if applied using your fingers; it melts slightly in contact with the warmth of the skin and blends like a dream. Apply it to anywhere which needs a little lift; along the length of the nose; a dot on the cuspids bow; cheek and brow bones; shoulders and collarbones; corners of the eyes and centre of the eyelids; I have even applied it to the knees and hands before now!

Updated 2024: 

Since originally writing this post way back in 2016, RMS Beauty have extended the Luminizer range and encompasses a range of shades to suit everyone – Never fear, the original is still with us!

Peach Luminizer is an enticing peach with hints of bronze to bring a subtle warmth to skin.
Magic Luminizer is slightly more opaque and provides a moon-lit, champagne opalescence (apparently a favourite amongst Makeup Artists)
Champagne Rosé Luminizer  gives the skin a magical blushed-pink dewiness

I’ve borrowed the image above from the RMS website to give you an idea because I don’t have the newer shades in my kit as I am using up other highlighting products before I invest. I have swatched them however and I can promise, they are just as lovely as the original!

Have you tried any of the RMS Beauty Luminizer’s? Which is your favourite?
