I went to Walmart today and picked up a few things. I wanted to try the True Match Lumi Health Luminous Makeup. It is suppose to be a dupe for the Armani Luminous Silk. I haven’t tried either but after trying the very matte Wet n Wild Photo Ready foundation I thought it would be nice to have a dewy finish foundation. I got it in W3 which ended up being too dark for my winter color. I will have to take it back. I still wanted to share it with you and show the color and finish.
The website describes it as…
“Medium coverage. Skin-improving. Luminous finish.
Finally, makeup that creates skin so healthy – it’s luminous! True Match™ Lumi Healthy Luminous Makeup combines 3 powerful ingredients that work to improve your complexion the more you wear them. 40% pure water for all-day hydration.

I liked the finish on me but like I said the color was off. It applied easily and left a luminous finish. I will have a picture below with me wearing it with no powder. It was a first impression so I can’t attest to the longevity of the foundation.
Next I bought L’Oreal Infallible Never Fail Silky Eyeliner in Plum/Prune. It is creamy and the color was very pigmented. When I used it in the picture below it did seem to skip on my eyes. I will need to play with it some more as it could have been user error. It does smudge for a smoky look then not budge once set.
The website describes it as smudge proof with sixteen hour wear. It comes in six shades. I was not wow’d by this and won’t buy another one.
Next I bought two Real Technique sponges. I have a Beauty Blender that I am not actually fond of but I LOVED using the real technique sponge. I felt it really helped the makeup glide on seemlessly and effortlessly. I will totally repurchase this. I plan on doing a comparison post so look forward to that. 🙂
Lastly, I needed to purchase my favorite cleanser I was out of. Neutrogena Deep Clean Cream Cleanser. I swear by this for removing makeup. I use this to remove it then a different cleanser to double clean the face. It is just how I do it. I plan on doing a skin care routine post in the future as well. It is non greasy and non irritating.
Here is a picture of the eyeliner and the foundation with a little concealer, eyeshadow, lipstick, and blush on. I did not powder the foundation as I wanted you to see the finish.
As you can see the eyeliner is very vibrant and a beautiful purple color while the foundation is a nice finish (I think anyway) it doesn’t match my neck. I will be getting it in a lighter shade and maybe a more neutral undertone. That is the problem with buying at the drugstore you have to guess what shade you are. Thankfully here in the US with your receipt you can return or exchange it.
Have you tried any of these products do you like them? Do you have any thoughts on the foundation or what I should try next?
