5 Editors Test the $16 Drugstore Highlighter Alix Earle Swears By

It’s a staple in the influencer’s GRWM videos.
April 24, 2023

If you’re as obsessed with Alix Earle’s TikTok as we are, you’ve definitely seen her GRWM (get ready with me) videos on your for you page. Her makeup routine is all about sun-kissed-looking, glowy skin, and one of the products that she swears by is the L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Glotion Natural Glow Enhancer in Deep

This glow-enhancing primer can be used before makeup, to prime the skin, or as a glow-enhancing highlighter after applying foundation, and it’s perfect for achieving that lit-from-within look. Since Alix Earle swears by this product, our editors have been excited to put it to the test for an everyday makeup look. Read on for their thoughts on this glowing skin primer and why it's perfect for summer.

Juliana, Visual Designer

The hype around Lumi Glotion is well-deserved. I dotted a little bit of the primer onto my finger and applied it along my cheekbones — it was so easy to blend out, I didn't even need to reach for a brush. It gave me such a warm, natural-looking flush I even applied a tiny bit on the crease of my eyelids to give my skin an all-over glow. The formula is really buildable, which I like because I can add a little at a time until I have my desired look. I don't wear much foundation during the spring and summer, so this glowy primer and some blush are perfect for my everyday look. I can't wait to use it all season long.

I used the Lumi Glotion as a primer, before applying foundation, just like Alix Earle and I won’t be doing my makeup any other way going forward. This priming lotion delivers everything I want for my makeup: bronze color and a luminous glow with a hydrating base. Compared to some other high-end primers I’ve tried, this one is just as good (for a fraction of the price) and I really like that it doesn’t have large flecks of glitter or a lingering greasy residue. It’s definitely going to be a staple for my summer beauty routine because I love sun-kissed-looking skin, but you won’t ever catch me tanning my face in the sun. 

Becca, Producer

I had high hopes for this product and it did not disappoint. I first used Lumi Glotion as a primer before my foundation. It added a glowy and bronzed look that I can’t quite accomplish with just foundation on its own, which is what I love about it. After I put on my foundation and blush, I added small dots to my cheekbones and nose for a bronzy, highlighted look. The best kind of products are ones that you can use in many different ways so naturally; I’m a big fan of this one. Overall, I'm happy with how my look turned out and I think this will be a perfect staple in my makeup bag for spring and summer.

Kat, Social Media Editor

There’s something that’s so classic about a bronzed glow for the summer and this might be the perfect product for that. I’ve been seeing people use the L’Oréal Lumi Glotion under their foundation for a glowy base, so I decided to test that out for myself. Having a deeper complexion, I wasn’t sure if I’d be able to get a similar effect to others who looked like they just spent a day out in the sun. That said, I applied the product all over the highest points of my face then followed up with my foundation —- I was impressed. I had a luminous glow that lasted all day. I definitely feel like this glow primer might just be a staple in my routine for the summer.

Jordan, Associate Editor

During the warmer months, I love to give my skin a little boost of radiance and color with makeup, so I’m always on the hunt for a bronzer or highlighter that gives me that desired effect. I applied the Lumi Glotion as a bronzer-slash-highlighter over my foundation, and it immediately warmed up my complexion. I’m pretty low maintenance when it comes to my makeup routine, so I also appreciated how I could quickly apply it and blend it with my fingertips. I can already tell that I’m going to be leaning on this drugstore option to give me that sun-kissed look all summer long — and since it’s so reasonably priced, I don’t have to feel guilty about adding it to my cart over and over again.
