Why doesn't shimmery primer make any difference on me?

Everyone goes on about how shimmery/glowy primers make a massive difference to how your makeup looks but I've tried 3 now and they haven't made any difference. Current one is L'Oreal Lumi which I am
Reliably told is a dupe for the really good Becca one.

So, I put it on before foundation and it makes no difference to how my skin looks at all. Maybe it makes the foundation go on a bit easier but that's all. What exactly is supposed to happen? How is it supposed to look? I also have a highlighting powder which I attempt to use on my cheekbones for a glow as instructed and that does bugger all too. Is th because I have really pale skin? Do these things only
Work with a tan? Or am I not using them correctly?
