L’Oreal Paris Wake Up & Glow Mon Amour Highlighting Drops in ‘Sparkling Love’ are an iridescent champagne coloured liquid, packaged in a generous 15ml glass bottle with a glass dropper applicator.
These highly pigmented liquid illuminator drops contain shea butter and coconut oil, and they blend seamlessly into foundation or on bare skin.
The drops can be used in a number of ways: they can be used on bare skin for a no make-up look; two drops can be used all over for a radiant glow, or one drop in targeted areas (like on the cheekbones); the drops can be applied on their own over foundation, or mixed into foundation, primer, or moisturiser before being applied; and they can be blended with a beauty blender or with fingers. I applied mine with my fingers and they were really easy to blend with a light tapping motion.
I don’t even think I needed one full drop to apply it to my cheekbones, on top of my foundation. Half a drop (or a light tap of the finger to the side of the dropper worked well), and the 15ml bottle is going to last ages! The size of the bottle may even be far too large, with the product reaching its expiry date before all the product inside has been used.
My first impression of these Glow Mon Amour Highlighting Drops was, “Wow, this is really shimmery.” But once it had been blended, all that was left was a beautiful, light reflective glow.
I really do like these drops. They’re an easy to use multi-purpose item, and a little goes a long way. The do help to brighten a dull or tired looking complexion, while also reflecting light and acting as a highlighter. I’d definitely recommend these to someone who is looking for a fantastic, easy-to-use highlighting product.
I did try mixing two drops of these with my moisturiser, on a ‘no make-up’ day, just to see what happened. Needless to say, I won’t be trying that again! It just made my naturally oily skin look very shiny. If you like a dewy skin look, give it a try, you might like the effect that the highlighter and moisturiser gives. Unfortunately, that look just didn’t work for me, and I prefer to use these over my foundation, as a highlighter.
L’Oreal Paris Wake Up & Glow Mon Amour Highlighting Drops are available in four shades: Sparkling Love, Champagne, Loving Peach, and Melon Dollar Baby, and can be found online or from department stores and selected L’Oreal stockists.
