Glazing ≠ Luminosity

The truth is: keying up a flesh tone with a near-white color and then glazing over that with a transparent dark (like a raw umber) does not charge the image with an electric-like glow.  Instead, the glaze dampens the luminosity and shifts the hue.

How strange I thought the contrary to be true.  A lapsus?  Or have I missed something?
