This $14 product was the secret to several stars’ Met Gala glows

The stars were out in full force for the 2024 Met Gala on Monday night— and shining a little extra, thanks to this drugstore beauty buy.

While A-listers have a wide range of products at their disposal, several prepped with the same glow-promising standby before this year’s fashion-filled fête: L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Glotion ($17 $14).

Elle Fanning complemented her crystalline Balmain gown with a dewy beauty look featuring the hydrating highlighter, while Camilla Cabello used hers as part of a head-to-toe L’Oréal hair and makeup look.

And the product’s becoming somewhat of a red carpet staple for Kendall Jenner; she’s used it for multiple high-profile events, including her “fresh and beautiful, modern renaissance” Met Gala look created by makeup artist Mary Phillips.

It seems the Glotion’s having a modern renaissance of its own as of late, as the trio of Met Gala attendees are hardly the only ones obsessed with it.

It’s racked up over 36,000 largely positive Amazon reviews to date — and according to the brand, one flies off the shelves every 14 seconds.

“It provides the perfect dewy glow to the skin without the glittery look that some other tinted moisturizers use,” raved one satisfied shopper, calling it “literally perfection.”

A second called it a “game-changer for my skincare routine,” while a third enthused, “I typically buy very high-end make-up products and this has blown all of them away.”

Martha Stewart’s similarly smitten with the stuff, as her makeup artist Daisy Foye once told People she uses the tinted moisturizer “every day” on her 82-year-old client.

“It’s how she gets that dewy look, like she just got a facial,” she added. “I’m obsessed with it.”
