I am a Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector loyalist. Oh wait. I *was* a Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector loyalist. Then I found Éclat Miracle, which goes on basically like the SSP only it is SOOOOoooo much lighter and more fluid. I'd even argue that this makes the effect so much more natural looking because it's so much less thick. Love it. New HG highlighter!
So I got a sample of this because I developed a recent addiction to luminizers. I got the 7ml sample. This product is a translucent runny white liquid with micro reflecting pigment that reflects light. The white color is universal so it suits everyone. This luminizer is great it gives you a subtle dewy glow without any glitter/shimmer and is perfectly natural looking. Now, it is insanely expensive like most high-end products. I also picked up the Loreal Magic Lumi primer and believe me its a complete dupe of the Lancome eclat miracle. Love the Lancome one but can't spend the big bucks so I'll stick to the Loreal one.
I received a sample of this and OH WOW. I absolutely love it. I mix my foundation on a little dish, then add a drop or two of the EM directly in and mix, then apply to my face. It adds a beautiful, iridescent glowiness without shimmer or glitter. It's subtle yet really brightens up my complexion. Most important, it doesn't cause breakouts and I break out from so many new products.
Others have complained that it's runny and yes, it is thin in consistency. It's easy to mix right in foundation or face lotion. I haven't applied it directly to my skin, but can see how a small dab could add some highlight. Not a cheap product but a little goes a long way, and the benefits are worth the price. I am definately going to be purchasing this full size, probably within the month.
good stuff first highlighter was given to me from a friend who mom has work with lancome forever. takes practice on how the best to use. im looking for something that a bit better though but it is nice
I use Eclat Miracle on my under eye area to brighten it and disguise dark circles and it works amazingly for this. I am Indian and like many women of my ethnicity I have problems with dark circles/hyperpigmentation and concealer/foundation alone doesn't brighten and revitalize the area. I bought Eclat Miracle to use on my cheekbones, but one day I tried it under my eye and I was shocked at the difference it made. It needs to be used in small amounts for this, but it can really work wonders in making one's face and eyes look more awake, radiant and vital. Oh, and it is nice for the cheekbones, too :)
I was searching for highlighters in switzerland but didnot get somthing. I planned to order online from ebay or amazon..but it didnot work then one day I saw Éclat Miracle Serum of Light Complexion Illuminator..I just bought it blindly as I couldnot wait so much to see the effect of highlighters on face ...I dont regret for spending tooo much on it ..it is worth buying..first of all it doesnot contain any glittery particle ...noone can make out that you have used highlighter ...so natural ...and glowing ...effect reamins for 4-5 hours .. besides this it enhances the complexion perfectly...skin looks healthy ...i liked it alot ...but quantity is less...48 CHF ..just for little tube stops me from using it daily with my foundation...I keep it for special events...
Received a GWP size of this and I use a drop of it in my foundation every morning. Now it applies so silky and flawless that I'm going to purchase a full size when I run out. I have to shake the tube before application or it will apply clear and runny without the illuminating part! I haven't used this over makeup yet but may try that. I love how one tiny pindrop of this serum does the trick in my foundation! Amazing difference with this!
I received a small sample of this with a GWP and I wasn't sure for a while where to put it on my face and whether I liked it. Only recently I decided to use it and I was surprised how much I loved it. It's now a staple in my makeup routine when I want lightly luminous skin.
I use a bit of it after I apply my moisturizer. I tend to not use it on my tzone that much. I prefer using 2 fingers to pat a bit on my cheeks and some on my forehead and a bit around my mouth area as it seems to diminish some of the redness. I have sensitive acne prone skin and so far my skin hasn't reacted negatively to it..big bonus!
It makes my skin look glowing ( like I had an expensive facial) and makes me look rested and healthy. The illuminating effect is very sheer and isn't glittery at all so you don't end up looking like a disco ball or a teen that went overboard with shimmer.Even if you do use a bit too much it doesn't make it look like you did. I like to use a Mark bronzing powder on my cheeks and on my temples after I use this for an extra glow.
Once the sample is gone, I will definetly be purchasing a full size.
I am very pleased with this product. I was so unsure wether to buy it or not, but I'm happy that I did. My skin is glowing and the first time I used it I had three different people asking me about what I did to make it look so good and fresh. It is rather expensive, but it's just one of the things that I would definitely choose to splurge on! My one complaint though is that there seems to be a lot of unnecessary stuff in it, it's very perfume-y and I wish it wasn't... But I'm still going to use it because it really makes a big difference on my face.
I had such high hopes for this! I have used this many times but it's immediately absorbed into the skin and can't be seen. I'm going to follow someone elses suggestion and try using this on the outer corner of my eyes and under my eyes to see if it gives me that 'dewy glow' (did want it for along my cheekbone...doesn't work here) will keep you updated. In the meantime...buy something else!! Small tube and very expensive.
***Edit - it's better when you use a makeup sponge to apply - for ex. put some along your cheekbone and dab with a makeup sponge until absorbed. I doubt I'll repurchase - because I'll move onto another highlighter - but now what I have isn't going to be wasted - but in the end it's just alright.
