My Experience with Lorac Moonlight Light Source Illuminating Highlighter:
Packaging: The packaging is similar to the Lorac Color Source buildable blushes which I have reviewed here on IMBB a while back. The case is sleek, compact yet sturdy. I love the see-through top and the sticker denoting the shade below. The case closes securely. If I liked the Lorac color source blushes, I love love these highlighters by them.
Texture: This highlighter is a very smooth finely milled powder. It’s more powdery and does kick up slight amount of product when you dip your brush in, but its quite effortless in terms of application. It glides on buttery smooth and works well with both of my highlighting brushes (Wayne Goss Brush 15 and Real Techniques Setting Brush).
Pigmentation: I love the fact that these highlighters are easy to build. You can easily control the amount of glow you want ranging from subtle to full party glow.
Shade: The shade “Moonlight” is a warm-toned pink shade. Though this is not a conventional shade when it comes to highlighters which have the usual gold or beige tone, I still find it to be pretty wearable and it will suit all skin tones provided you don’t apply it too heavily as to have a pink stripe appear on your cheek. I do like that I can apply this as a traditional highlight on the top of my cheeks or even use this as blush topper with a very light hand. It gives the most gorgeous sheen (without looking shimmery) and makes the skin look youthful without emphasizing pores.
At first glance, I thought it might be similar to another gorgeous highlight from my collection – Urban Decay Highlighter in the shade “Aura,” but swatched, they are very different as UD Aura has more of a lilac undertone and is cooler in tone while “Moonlight” is more pink and warmer. In that context, “Moonlight” is much more flattering.
Staying Power: These highlighters by Lorac have pretty good staying power on my skin. This highlighter stays without fading for 6-7 hours. It does not emphasize the texture of the skin or look of pores nor does it cling to any dry patches. I am also pleased with the fact that this product comes with a decent price tag for amazing quality product. Overall, I am very pleased with this product. I absolutely have no hesitation recommending it.
