Lakmé Absolute Moon-Lit Highlighter Review, Swatches, LOTD

I'm not into highlighters. That's because my oily face is already a natural, self-made, highlighter. 
But Lakmé Absolute Moon-Lit Highlighter looked good enough to eat, I couldn't resist! Plus, I have a weakness for duos & powders with interesting designs on them. If I ever design one myself, it would have a high heel shoe with a bow embossed on it. I have an ugly sketch of it in Paint- which I don't really know how to use.
Luxurious ultra pearlised Face Highlighter duo, with its micro-fine velvet pearls which melt into your skin for a naturally luminous glow.
  • Enriched with Vitamin E
  • Dermatologically tested
How/Where To Apply: You can use your finger to apply on top of your cheekbones, bridge of your nose, cupid's bow, and brow bone. It can also be applied on your clavicles & décolletage. If I'm using a brush, I use Sigma F35 Tapered Highlighter Brush 

Oh the subtle marketing tactic ;p Actually, use powder before using this highlighter, okay? :)

What's brilliant about this highlighter is, it is dual-colored & has a conventional vanilla highlighting powder + a bronze one. So, if the vanilla one looks too white, you can always take it down a few notches by mixing it with the bronze. The texture of the powder is smooth & silky, and both colors blend together easily. The wafer design, of, course, is the best thing about it.
The only problem: The shimmer has a way of travelling beyond where you want it to stay put- you can judge by the loose shimmer on the sides of the pan. It can be controlled by shaking off your brush & blowing your finger before applying.
I want to bite it!

Swatches: 1, 2, 1+2 (Without Flash)

Swatches: 1, 2, 1+2 (With Flash)

I used both shades on my cheeks & the vanilla on my tear duct areas. I didn't use it on the bridge of my nose coz it's already a very sharp nose :@ . If you have a flat nose, using a highlighter on the bridge will make it look more defined. [Photo taken on 11th April ]

This is a high-end-quality highlighter with a price tag that suits it. Forget MAC MSF, try this first!

If you have Lakmé Gold Dust Shimmer Bronzer, and you don't think you'll need the vanilla shade in this, then you can skip it, coz the bronze shade is quite similar to Gold Dust Bronzer.

Price ~ Rs.510 = $9.50

My Rating ~ ♥♥♥♥ 4.5/5

  1. looks really pretty on!

  2. Nice Look! I personally like a liquid illuminator it gives a more natural flawless look and can be used in multipe ways
    1. Mixed in my day moisturuzer for a natural glowing look for summer
    2. Mixed with my foundation for a sexy party look
    3. Put before my foundation for a subtle illumination
    4. Applied over foundation only on my high lighting area, brow bone, and above the cheek bone. Really hot!!!

    you can pick one up from MK for Rs. 850 and last a really long time, super concentrated, need a really small drop.

Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3
