Chanel Éclat Lumière – Face Highlighter Pen (Review)

I like to try out many beauty products and due to various reasons, I usually gravitate towards drugstore brands. I spend my money on high end brands very carefully because not all of the products are good or suit me and my style. Chanel, however, is an exception. I just love their products so much. The name, quality, color payoff and packaging just calls out to me. And I have fallen in love with their face highlighter pen – Chanel Eclat Lumiere.

So when I was in a mood to splurge some money, I decided to buy a face highlighter pen because I like to have a dewy glow on my skin even if I do not want to apply any makeup on a day. I tend to wear some type of highlight under my brows and on my cheeks.

I was in a mood to buy YSL Touche Éclat (because everyone raved about it on YOUTUBE) but somehow I went to the Chanel counter first. Imagine my delight when I noticed a highlighter pen just like YSL’s. I was not aware of it before (I don’t know how) but I decided to give it a try. It is CHANEL Éclat Lumière.

I am in love with this product. I have owned a highlighter pen from LUMÉNE before (which was average) but nothing else looks as natural and beautiful as a highlight as this one (at least on me). I chose the shade 20 BEIGE CLAIR.

CHANEL Éclat Lumière is available in five shades on the US website but only three were available in Asia (Korea).

The highlighter pen can be found on the website:
Makeup -> Complexion -> Concealer -> Éclat Lumière

***According the CHANEL website***

An instant touch of radiance in a single stroke. ÉCLAT LUMIÈRE adds new radiance to makeup and dark areas of the face. It reduces the appearance of fine lines with an optical effect and lightens dark circles. Soft fluid texture.
This easy to apply highlighting pen can be used:

  • On its own, on bare skin for a naturally luminous and even complexion, applied to dark areas on the face (dark circles, fine lines, hollow of the chin, etc.)
  • On top of foundation, to add maximum radiance to makeup.


Rating: 5/5

Recommend: Absolutely

Repurchase: Definitely

This is my favorite highlighter pen ever! There not many drugstore highlighter pens like this in the market and I did get this for a special occasion and loving it to pieces.
