Lancôme Éclat Miracle Serum of light complexion illuminator review

Lancôme’s 1st universal serum of light; “Liquid mirror” particles scatter on the skin to produce a continuous, illuminating effect. The light texture and non-greasy formula blends seamlessly into the skin – without settling into lines. Immediately, every skin tone lights up with perfection for a shadow-free flawless complexion. Can be used on its own for touches of light on specific areas of the face, and mixed with foundation or moisturizer to give an all over glow.

After using Teint Miracle foundation for a while and being completely impressed by it I wanted to try Eclat miracle and finally got my hands on it. It comes in a sleek long tube with a tiny pointed tip for precise application. Trust me you will be glad the opening is so small because you need so tiny bit of the product that you do not want to waste it.  Packaging is travel and purse friendly. Tube has 20ml and I can see it will last a while.

Formula is thin, watery and small drop that comes out can easily cover at least half of the face (if you are applying it all over). It is listed under the “face primer” section. It can prime the skin for different types of products but it does not smooth the skin as other silicone loaded primers on the market nor it has that heavy feeling on skin.

Eclat Miracle is very versatile product. Couple of the ways you can use it:

  •  mixed with day cream or lotion for all over healthy glow
  •  applied all over after your day cream 
  •  mixed with your foundation primer 
  •  applied after your foundation on specific areas of face to highlight features
  •  before the powder blush to enhance the color
I like using it over Lancome Teint miracle on my brow bone, top of my cheek bones… Another way I use it is all over before applying Lancome Dual finish powder.
One concern I had was that it’s too similar to MAC Strobe liquid lotion that I already had. Well it is on the same page but it’s much much more subtle without noticeable shimmer that Strobe has. Below you will see comparison photo. Also Strobe has much more pink tint to it, while Eclat miracle is straight silverish.

If you are looking for subtle highlighter without noticeable glitter/shimmer that can be used in many different ways give Eclat miracle a try. I highly recommend it.
