Comments about Lorac Light Source Illuminating Highlighter:

Was looking for an everyday highlighter. Found it in this! I have red hair and fair skin, bought the "Daylight" (soft gold) and absolutely love the way it highlights my bone structure. I will do one application for everyday use and then layer with another coat on the weekends. The only issue is that it can get pretty messy, but I feel that this is a common occurrence with most powder makeup.

    Comments about Lorac Light Source Illuminating Highlighter:

    This product and shade was recommended to me but I was hesitant because of the high reflection and my fair skin. I thought it would be overwhelming. But it actually works well with fair skin. Yes, it's reflective but in a beautiful rather than garish way.

        This is my go-to highlighter! It's a good price and the colors are beautiful. I have used a lot of highlighters (big brands too) and this is by far my favorite. It's also very buildable so you can control the intensity.

          Comments about Lorac Light Source Illuminating Highlighter:

          I've been searching high and low for the perfect highlighter and this is it. This highlighter has NO glitter in it. Not even tiny micro-glitter like many highlighters. I prefer glitter-free highlighters because, first of all, they give a more natural look - a lovely "glow from within" - and second of all, glitter has a tendency to end up all over my face... not ideal for my everyday life.

          I have fair, pink-toned skin (MAC NW-10 for reference) and Moonlight is the perfect shade for me. Many popular highlighter shades are too yellow for my skin. If you have pink undertones, I highly recommend this shade. It's the perfect natural, everyday shade that I can dust on lightly for the office or build up for a more obvious shine.

                    I love this highlighter, it's become one of my favorites. It goes on very smooth, you only need a little bit of product. I use the Morphe M510 brush, you can really build this up to make it blinding or just apply a little for a more natural soft glow. I'd compare it to the Becca highlighters except slightly more natural looking, I have the color starlight which is great for my skin right now since I am paler in the winter. Over all a very nice highlighter, glad I picked it up.

                          Every Light Source Highlighter looks beautiful across all skin tones and each shade can be used to achieve a different look. Twilight and Daylight are warmer toned shades while Starlight and Moonlight are cool toned shades. We would recommend Starlight for you, its a great everyday highlighter for your complexion. We hope this helps!

                          The LORAC Light Source Illuminating Highlighters are a powder based formula. However the texture of our powder based formulas are soft and creamy in texture. If you are are looking for a cream based highlighter formula you may want to check out our new PRO Conceal and Contour Palette, which contains 4 shades of cream highlighters. We hope this helps!

                          LORAC does not currently offer a Light Source Illuminating Highlighter shade that matches the highlighter from TANtalizer Highlighter & Matte Bronzer Duo, but we recommend trying Moonlight. Moonlight has a subtle pink undertone similar to the highlighter in TANtalizer Highlighter & Matte Bronzer Duo.
