I normally include a highlighter pen in my daily make up. They are used to bring light and radiance to the skin, erase signs of fatigue and brightens the complexion. They are supposed to work as concealer as well, but they have quite sheer coverage for dark circles in my opinion. But I love to use it after the concealer to bright up the area around the eyes and as complexion brightener.

Today I want to show you my experience with these three highlighter pens. I have fair skin tone so I always choose the lightest colour of the range,  but as you can see on the picture below the colours are all different witch it can be quite confusing. Let's take a look to this comparison:

YSL Touche Éclat 1 Luminous Radiance, 35 . This product is loved by make-up artists and celebrities! It is a good product but is so pricey. It leaves a prettty effect on the skin. Although it doesn't last for long on the skin. I think this shade might not be the right for me, I picked the number one which has a clearly pink-salmon undertone and it looks quite strange sometimes in my skin. 

Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch 01, 9 . This one has been such a disappointment. This is the lightest colour of the range and as you can see it is so dark for my skin tone! Also I find the formula quite matte in comparison with other highlighters which is very weird. It didn't work for me at all.

L'Oreal Lumi Magique Touch of Light 01, 13 . This has been my latest acquisition and I have to say that I'm very pleased with it. It has an ivory colour which will work perfectly for pale-fair skin. It has a nice formula which give a subtle highlighting. Works perfectly as an instant under eye brightener.

My winner in this comparison is the L'Oreal Lumi Maquique Touch of Light. The color in this case is perfect for highlighting in a fair skin. Also the formula is very good and the price is affordable.

Have you ever tried one of these three?
  1. Nice tips !!! Ive always heard great things about the YSL Touche Éclat 1 Luminous Radiance but yes .. it is quite expensive and if it doesnt last so long .. its not really worth it. Its great to know that loreal has a nice product as a highlighter!!! :) xx
