Review: Savvy Luminizer Illuminating Powder

What it Claims: Shimmering shades beautifully blend to brighten and accentuate features. For a natural looking, luminous glow sweep all over face and neck to highlight.

Where you can buy it: Only at Sally Beauty Supply (not currently available on the website)

Price: $6.99 or $6.49 with Sally's Card

My Rating: 4 Peace Signs


The Good: The Color I have is Warm Bronze and for my skin tone I find that it's a good bronze not too light and not too brown. All 5 of the color strips come together for a nice even color that is both blend able and build able. You can also use each strip individually for different effects. The shimmer isn't overpowering either just a slight hint. I personally like this for contour just swiping it all the way down through all five colors, I also like to use the top two colors as a highlight. The powder is very smooth not at all chalky.

The Bad: It is possible to overdue it as with any bronzer. Some also like to use bronzers as an all over face color but with this I felt that it made my skin look off, like too many colors at once were going on so it was better to stick to using it as a contour. Other than that I really like this.

Overall: This has become my everyday contour powder I really like the light it gives my face. I would recommend this for darker skin tones, light brown and darker because the brown may be too overpowering for fairer skin tones just in my opinion.

If you have any questions about this product that I might have left out just let me know!

*Just MY opinion/experience with this product*
