Review: LORAC Perfectly Lit Luminizing Powder

Hi lovely makeup geeks!  I hope your week has been going great so far and that your summer has been a fun one!

Today I have another review for you for the Perfectly Fit Oil-Free Luminizing Powder. I’ve been using this new cheek highlighter lately that has been giving me a beautiful, natural glow for the summer.  I switched from my Armani Fluid Sheer to a powder as my skin has been a bit more oily in this hot, muggy weather.  I found this Lorac Luminizing Powder to work perfectly for me as it’s a powder highlighter vs a liquid, plus it’s easier to travel with since it comes in a sleek case which is great to take with you in your purse to work or pack for traveling.

The Perfectly Lit Luminizing cheek highlighter comes in a powder that is shimmery, but not glittery like many other highlighters on the market.  The texture is very smooth and creamy and gives a natural glow to my skin.  The color I have been using currently is “Spotlight” which is a gorgeous warm beige color!  This is the perfect shade for summer month when my skin is darker. If I had to choose just one color, it would be this one.  Luminous is great for fair skin and Radiant is best for dark skin.

The highlighter comes in 3 shades:

  • Luminous – Golden Cream/Champagne
  • Spotlight – Warm Beige
  • Radiant – Golden Brown

There are two ways you can apply a highlighter. The first method is to use a stiff foundation brush like the Makeup Geek Flat Foundation Brush which will provide more control over the product. Or you can use a cheek highlighting brush like the Makeup Geek Cheek Highlighter Brush to achieve a nice all over glow to the cheeks.

The only downside to this product is the price: it is $32.00 USD for .34 ounces. For me, the price is a little much for what it actually is, but this does last a very long time so it’s not something you will have to repurchase a lot.  I do like the sleek, convenient compact which is great to throw in your purse or makeup bag for travel.


  • Powder form which is great for summer months or oily skin.
  • Is shimmery, but not sparkly or glittery like some highlighters
  • Convenient compact, great for travel or purse
  • Gives a nice glow to the cheeks and adds luminosity


  • Just a tad pricey…  ($32 USD)


  • Product:   5
  • Packaging:  5
  • Quality:  4
  • Price:  3
  • Would I Buy Again:  Most Likely
Where to Buy:    Sephora  .  Amazon  .  eBay

Overall, I really like this product especially for the summer months. The packaging is great although the price could be a little less. If you want to find a good alternative, you can use a little bit of eyeshadow to your cheeks to accomplish the same effect. Some good examples would be Makeup Geek’s  “Shimma Shimma” or for a more golden glow, use “Bleached Blonde
