Alternative Illuminating make up base

Years and years ago, I regularly used an Avon product - invisible light illuminating make up base.

I then stopped wearing make up for several years, until about a year ago. I ordered what I thought was the same product from Avon, now called magic face perfector, but it's not the same at all!

I really loved the old Avon product - does anyone remember it and can anyone recommend an alternative?

In order of my preference

L'oreal Lumi Magique primer.

MAC Strobe Cream

Seventeen 3 Way Highlighter

are all very similar products. The Avon one has mostly poor reviews online. These are all fantastic.

I always go back to Studio Secrets smoothing resurfacing primer. The texture takes a bit of getting used to but for me (mature woman) it gives a nice glow under make up.

sonata that one is a silicon based mattifying primer which is pretty much the exact opposite of what the OP is looking for.

Apologies. Not being familiar with Avon I didn't see that she wanted a non silicone based primer.

The Dior Glow Maximiser primer is really lovely.
