Another gem from the Lakme Illuminating makeup range, the Lakme Moon Lit Highlighter is something which i have been eyeing for a very long time. It is a beautiful highlighter and bronzer in one with hints of shimmer in silver and gold. The lakme highlighter comes at the right time because the wedding season in all about shimmer right! If i am not wrong, Lakme had the same highlighter 4-5 years back and have relaunched it again as a part of this sabyasachi collection. This illuminating collection is beautifully designed for the festive season and aims at creating “lit from within” skin with a luminous glow. Here is my review of this gorgeous highlighter from the lakme collection.

BTW have you watched Moana? Such an adorable movie! If i have to be honest, i was noticing the fashion sense of the tribal ladies all throughout the movie! Loved the baby Moana too. Go watch it if you haven’t. Coming back to this pretty highlighter.


My review of Lakme Moonlit Highlighter:

The highlighter comes in a classic Lakme black packaging. The packing is sturdy with a transparent flip open lid. You can see the product inside which is a good thing but i would have preferred a mirror to touch up on the go. The product is pressed in a checkered pattern which looks oh so beautiful.

The shade is a combination of a stunning powder highlighter and a bronzer. I prefer a matte bronzer as it creates a more chiseled face but the highlighter is simply beautiful. The moon lit highlighter is a champagne shade so it will suit fair Indian skin tones. The gold based bronzer has to be used very subtly as it can go wrong very easily. The pigmentation is something which can be improved upon. The darker shade has a decent pigmentation but the lighter one shows up only slightly even on multiple swipes.

I use the lakme absolute moon lit highlighter on the highest points of my face to add to the dewy look. The good thing about this product is that the shimmer is very fine and not gritty. One thing i love about this product is that it is a 3 in 1 product if you know how to use it. I use it as a natur al blush by swirling the brush over the two shades apart from the highlighter and bronzer use.

Lakme has really made these illuminating collection products much better than the products from the normal ranges in terms of quality. They look regal and have a finesse to them. The packaging has also been upgraded. If you look at the product launches from Lakme in India, they have been consistently good recently.


The darker shade of the lakme highlighter will be perfect for getting a warm tanned skin in summers. It will also be a good neutral blush if used correctly. The staying power is good with 5-6 hours of wear. I think it will last more if layered with a primer. I think the right way to use it is by dusting the bronzer very lightly on the hollows of the face and using the highlighter with a very light hand on the cheek bones.


Pros of Lakme Absolute Moon Lit Highlighter:

  • A perfect multipurpose product with a blush, highlighter, and bronzer in one.
  • Great classy packaging with checkered pattern
  • The pigmentation of the darker shade is good.
  • Staying power is also decent.
  • The shimmer is finely milled and doesn’t look chunky.
  • Great quantity for the price.

Cons of Lakme Absolute Moon Lit Highlighter:

  • The pigmentation of the lighter shade is a bit below average.
  • It is very easy to go wrong with this product as the shimmer can be too much.
  • I would have preferred a mirror over the see through flip case.


Price in India: Rs.725

Conclusion: Overall, this lakme absolute highlighter is a good mix of highlighting and contouring if you handle it the right way. The darker shade will be good for medium skin tones as a gorgeous glowy blush but it is too dark for me. It blends well and gives a very subtle sheen to the skin without making me look like a shine ball but i can only use half the product so the other half is sort of wasted. If you are looking for a good bronzer, the other bronzer from this collection is THE BOMB! Review coming up soon on VNA.
