Avon Magix Illuminator Review and Swatches

This little guy claims to “instantly brightens skin and banishes dark shadows”. Avon Magix Illuminator comes in 3 shades: Light, Medium, and Deep.

Price: $10/.05oz net wt.

Pros: Since it is an illuminator, I was not expecting any coverage at all but it does provide a light coverage. Granted, if you have real dark circles, you will still need your regular concealer underneath. It is shimmery (not chunky glitter) and you can see the light reflecting action. The texture is like a light cream that dries to a powdery finish and I was surprise that it didn’t crease under my eyes.

Cons: When I first got this, for a second I thought I got a defective pen. Literally I have to spin the dial part for like 5 minutes before any product would come out.

Overall: I got to be honest; I don’t find it makes a dramatic improvement for my dark circles. However, it is still a nice, affordable, travel friendly, non-creasing highlighter if you are seeking for one. Also, I got shade Medium and it was a bit too dark and it comes in a neutral/yellow undertone. If you’re MAC NC15-20, stick with Light. Rating: 4/5.

Disclosure: This review contains sample sent for consideration. The review is base on my honest personal opinions and experiences.
