Lakmé’s Multi-Purpose Lumi Lit Cream Guarantees a 3D Glow

Dear beauty aficionados, there’s a brand new glow-giver on the market that warrants your attention. Meet the Lakmé 9 to 5 Lumi Lit Cream, a highlighter-cum-moisturiser-cum-primer that promises a glow like never before, just in time for the festivities. A rich and luscious moisturiser peppered with the perfect amount of highlighter, the humbly priced formulation – a mere INR 549 certainly won’t dent your pocket – doubles up as a primer, too. Yes, you heard that right; the skin of your dreams is a swipe away.

Supercharged with ultra-hydrating hyaluronic acid and complexion-correcting vitamin B3, this formulation moisturises your epidermis while boosting luminosity, owing to the generous presence of highlighter particles. Available in three flattering tints, namely Dewy Rose, Silver Shimmer, and Golden Glaze, the repackaged, hybrid beauty offering can be worn solo, as a primer base, mixed with your foundation, or as a highlighter to shine the spotlight on your best features. Best suited for medium to dusky tones, the weightless cream blends seamlessly into your skin for a soft, star-lit glow.

I Tried the Lakmé 9 to 5 Lumi Lit Cream, and Here’s My Honest Takeaway

This non-greasy formula is an absolute winner. Super-affordable and suitable for all skin types, I ended up using this bestseller not just on my face but as a body shimmer, too. Despite adding a faint glimmer, it felt like second skin – no stickiness or clunky residue. On days I was planning to step out, I mixed a dollop with my foundation, whereas, on days I’d chosen to steer clear of a full face of makeup, I simply slathered it on for a natural luminosity.

Lending a three-dimensional effect to my skin, I applied a generous amount on my décolletage area and legs, too, and the luminescent glow was subtle, albeit striking. While the formulation comes in two sizes, 30g and 60g – the 30g variant is priced at just INR 299! – I’d recommend purchasing the larger tube because I’m positive you’ll need to restock. A swipe is all it takes to give you a lit-from-within glow, and you can use more if required.

Honestly, this product justifies doing away with a highlighter. While you may still want to hold on to your primer for a smooth base, you needn’t invest in another glow-giver. Dot the formula on your cheekbones, along the bridge of your nose, on your collarbones – pretty much anywhere you wish to draw attention – and blend away. Wait up, did I skip on mentioning the divine smell? An aqua-fresh scent reminiscent of the warm sea breeze.
