Lakme has launched illuminate collection and the range has a lot to offer – Illuminating Lip Shimmer, Illuminating Foundation, Sun Kissed Bronzer, Moon Lit Highlighter, Shimmer Bricks & Shine Lines. I have already reviewed few of these and have bought rest and testing them out. Now coming to the two products I am going to talk about – Sun Kissed Bronzer, Moon Lit Highlighter, are not new launches. These are re-launched and limited edition. I really wanted to get my hands on these so ordered them from Amazon.
Packaging is simple. Both the products come in large pans with clear plastic lid.
Lakme Absolute Sun Kissed Bronzer
Now I am a bronzer person and it is an important step in my makeup routine. I was quite interested in this product but since it was available online and nowhere near me. The bronzer came in a black card board box. It has light brown on one and dark on other side.
Now the texture of the bronzer is super smooth, almost buttery, which came as a surprise.But, it is a shimmery formula, not something I enjoy much in a bronzer.
The pigmentation is insane and one swipe will get you lot of color. So make sure to tap off the excess before putting it on your face. Also It has a copper sheen to it, warm toned, so I doubt if I will use it “ever’ as a bronzer. This would be more useful for a bronze goddess, shimmer ladden look if you want to create one.
Formula is so so blendable, it almost has a high-end feel to it. I loved it as a blush on me because I don’t see myself using a shimmery bronzer all over the face. Lakme Absolute Sun Kissed Bronzer can be a beautiful highlighter for darker complexions.
Lakme Absolute Moon Lit Highlighter
Now this one is my favorite of all the shimmer/ highlighting products from this range. Why? Believe me initially I thought it isn’t going to work for me due to frosty finish but the pink toned highlighter on one side and bronze on the other when mixed together create a beautiful subtle highlight.
Again the formula is shimmery but there are no chunky shimmers there which was such a huge relief. I love highlighters that give sheen and not “in your face’ finish. I don’t like shimmery but the ones that offer a beautiful sheen.
Applying and blending Lakme Absolute Moon Lit Highlighter is super easy. Control the amount you put on your face by tapping off the excess, and blend it on the high-points of your face. It looks so beautiful !
Look at the swatches below –
This is how Moon-Lit highlighter looks on me –
Lakme Absolute Sun Kissed Bronzer, Moon Lit Highlighter are priced at Rs 725 each for 9 g product
I really like the moon lit highlighter, more then the bronzer since the shades blend together and look so natural on face. The formula & Texture of Lakme Absolute Sun Kissed Bronzer, Moon Lit Highlighter is buttery smooth with minimum or almost no fall outs. The shimmer isn’t chunky and blends beautifully.
