Product Review – Lumiere Cashmere Face Base

A few years ago I switched to mineral makeup for two reasons – I needed something that was easy to apply midday after my foundation faded off (I have v-e-r-y oily skin), and most importantly, I could never find anything pale and yellow enough for my skin.

While looking for a new foundation, I recently ordered a few samples of Lumiere’s face base (5 baggie samples for a penny plus shipping)

I was so impressed with the Lumiere fase base formulas samples I ordered – Veena Velvet and Flawless Face, that I ordered them in full size, along with Cashmere, even though I hadn’t tried it.

Lumiere Cosmetics Cashmere Face Base in Light Golden

Ingredients from Lumiere’s website

Cashmere Foundation:
silk powder, serecite (colorless mica), titanium dioxide, zinc oxide, boron nitride, iron oxides

This is quality stuff. I’ve tried LOTS of mineral brands, and I think this by far is my favorite. The Cashmere formula is soft, easy to apply, does not fade or pool, and evens out my flush and hyper-pigmentation without making me look made up. It’s perfect foundation for a natural look when I don’t want to look like I’m wearing foundation. It’s also perfect for when I’m in a rush – I just swipe, swipe swipe the base over my face with a brush and I’m good to go.

Packed on so you can see the smooth texture

I highly recommend that you try Lumiere Cosmetics face base! It’s really easy to find a color match (I use Light Golden ), and the sample baggies last quite a few uses so you can give it a thorough road test.



  1. Have you hear about what is going on with Lumiere Cosmetics? The site has been down for at last a couple of days….not sure what’s going on. Thought you might know something.

    Thank you

      It seems like the new site was never completed, and there’s been no activity on their Facebook page or twitter since September or October. I have no idea what’s wrong, it all seems so abandoned.

        Oh I see now that you mean that the site is *completely* down. I don’t know what happened to the company but there are some complaints about unfulfilled orders.

  2. is there a company with a similar formula for lumiere cashmere beige 2.2? I just found out that they don’t excist anymore. To bad, i’ve used their products for years and i’m running out of my favourite foundation….

  3. ugh, everyday minerals stopped making o-glo formula that I used for soo many years, I had a good two year supply when they stopped but that running low now – and they discontinued every single colour I loved – ugh — SO I had kumiere on my list of backups to try and now they’re gone ? FML!!! O_O

I'd love to hear from you
