On my “very dry” skin, the luminizer aspect was slim to none. I'm not sure what some people consider “very dry” because they claimed a moisturizing and luminous finish on their “very dry” skin and this did no such thing for me. I tried applying this product a few different ways and was always left with the same unsatisfactory result.
Whether I used a wet sponge, stippling brush or my fingers to apply this, I never got my luminous finish. I found the coverage to be light at best and not easily build-able. Even with my rigorous moisturizing process that always comes before I put my makeup on, this product ended up clinging to super dry areas and breaking down within the hour.
