Last Spring I blogged about Kora Organics Rose Quartz Luminizer and fell in love (review here). You can imagine my excitement then they brought out new shades! While the Rose Quartz is lovely, it might not be suitable for every skin tone. In today’s post I’m swatching you all the shades, but for more detailed information check out the original post! I asked these items from a PR company for review, so I did not purchase them myself.
Kora Organics and Luminizers
Founded by the model Miranda Kerr, Kora Organics’ philosophy is to be a holistic brand that not only creates beautiful products for the skin, but also pampers the mind with positive affirmations. Their special ingredient is the Noni Fruit, an antioxidant rich food, which Miranda started ingesting as a child. Some of their products are also infused with Rose Quartz for “good vibrations”. I don’t know about that, but whatever makes you happy! Kora Organics are certified organic (COSMOS). The luminizers come in 3 shades: Rose Quartz*, Clear Quartz* and Amethyst*. 6g for €29.9 at Kicks.fi*
More Thoughts On the Luminizers
I still agree with my original review - Kora’s highlighters are excellent. They are quick, easy-to-use and blend effortlessly with fingers. After applying blush I dab some highlighter on the high points of my cheeks, nose bridge and cupid’s bow. For tips how to highlight your face check out this post. I’ve noticed that Kora highlighters don’t move my makeup (blush, foundation) underneath as some liquid or creamy highlighters may do. This isn’t a real issue, but I will say that the Rose Quartz one changed the texture little over the summer (the surface isn’t as smooth).
The colors are quite subtle and you might think the swatches look very similar, but IRL there is a more notable difference when light hits the highlighters. I can still wear the Amethyst Luminizer without looking like a purple unicorn as the base color is more subtle. I’d recommend choosing your shade according to which color you like the best, as they are all quite cool toned.
Kora Organics Luminizer Swatches
Rose Quartz - a light pale pink with an icy hue
Amethyst - a light lavender with cool tones
Clear Quartz - a white clear highlighter that looks wet when blended.
I love these highlighters, they’re so quick and easy I find my hand reaching for them all the time. I prefer Kora’s softer formula to RMS or Tata Harper - I do not have their luminizers, but I’ve tested some other their “pot products”. I can’t pick a favorite shade easily, but right now I’m quite liking subtle, wet-looking highlighters so I’d might go with Clear Quartz.
This week has been swatch-heavy, but new topics next week! What’s your favorite cream highlighter?
