Magic Luminizer: The Latest All-Natural Highlighter from RMS Beauty

rms beauty magic luminizer review and swatches

Just recently arrived to the clean and green beauty scene is a brand new, all-natural, good-for-your-skin luminizer from RMS Beauty.  Here’s my review, along with a little comparison of it next to their long-time cult-favorite Living Luminizer.

RMS Beauty Magic Luminizer

Created with the same light-reflecting technology as RMS Beauty’s popular Living Luminizer, Magic Luminizer illuminates the skin and gives it an ethereal, dewy glow.  But unlike the white, almost icy-shimmer of the Living Luminizer, Magic Luminizer imparts a warmer glow through iridescent champagne shimmer mixed with subtle pink undertones.

It’s perfect for those who are looking to achieve a more natural, subdued glow, or prefer a warmer base (to go along with a warm-toned makeup looks perhaps).   I also see this new shade working particularly well for those with warm tan/medium skin tones.

How To Apply It

RMS’s Magic Luminizer can be applied using your fingers, or a synthetic brush (RMS recommends using their Beauty Kabuki Polisher Retractable Brush). Apply Magic Luminizer over all the high points of the face to add a soft glow, including the cheekbones, down the bridge of the nose, brow bones, cupid’s bow above lips, etc.  Magic Luminizer can also be applied in the very inner eyes corners and on the lids to brighten the eye area.

RMS Beauty Magic Luminizer Review

With coconut oil at the top of the ingredients list, plus a ton of other nourishing oils, Magic Luminizer has an amazingly smooth and creamy texture.  It’s super easy to apply and blend out using your fingers, and combined with its flesh-like tones (sand/pink), it’s practically foolproof.  It literally melts into the skin, leaving behind a subtle sheen and natural, candlelit glow without the use of heavy glitter or shimmer.

Magic Luminizer vs Living Luminizer

Compared to RMS Beauty’s Living Luminizer, the Magic Luminizer is slightly creamier in texture, yet still as pigmented. It’s also warmer and about a shade darker, with a little extra micro-shimmer.

The champagne shade comes out to be very close to my light-medium skin tone and almost completely disappears once blended in, leaving behind more of a sheen rather than tint. Living Luminizer, on the other hand, provides much more noticeable color (at least on my skintone) and creates an ‘ethereal’, almost frosty glow that also add a little extra ‘lift’ to the facial features.

Formula-wise, the Magic Luminizer contains a wider variety of oils, including not just castor seed oil and coconut oil, but also jojoba seed oil, cocoa seed butter and sunflower seed oil, plus tocopherol (or Vitamin E).  Its formulation is actually more comparable to RMS Beauty’s Master Mixer.

Wrap Up

Overall, RMS Beauty’s Magic Luminizer is the perfect ‘in-between’ shade that fills in the gap between the Living Luminizer and Master Mixer.  It’s not as light and white-based as the Living Luminizer, and also not as deep as the Master Mixer, so if you didn’t find a match with either of these, the Magic Luminizer is definitely worth trying out!  (I personally prefer it over both!)

Available at The Detox Market for $38.00 (or try a sample as part of their Try It On samples sets!)
