Lancôme Éclat Miracle

Éclat Miracle is a radiance fluid and is Lancome's answer to MAC Strobe Cream. It contains the same 'lit from within' light reflecting particles that are in the Teint Miracle Foundation. So it gives a refined sheen rather than an obvious shimmer. I was really interested to give it a try as a highlighter as I struggle to find formulas that don't look a little dirty on my cheeks.

This is a fairly lightweight fluid and is easy to blend. I do have to be careful not to rub so much that I take off my blusher so I tend to pat it on with my finger tips. I think buffing it with a brush might be better than rubbing with finger tips if you are applying over make up. One of these days, I will actually take my own advice instead of being lazy and not reaching for a brush! It's a radiance fluid so you can also apply this under foundation or even mix it with your foundation to give a more subtle glow. I've been wearing it quite a lot on days that I haven't applied foundation, as I find it gives a more polished finish to a look.


Hopefully you can see the sheen on my hands and on my cheek bones in the full face pictures. I really like it as it gives a subtle highlight and I find it easy to use. The texture is pleasant: it's light and non-greasy and most importantly for me, it doesn't make me look dirty. I think this is a great product if like me you struggle a little with highlighters. It's good for pepping up winter skin too.

Éclat Miracle costs £19.50 for a 20ml tube and I would highly recommend it if your skin could do with a little radiance 'boost'. I will definitely be re-purchasing when this runs out.

  1. This is very pretty! Love the glow!

  2. Glad you like it. I find these things so tricky to capture in pictures. It's how I wanted Pearl cream colour base to look on me but didn't!

  3. This looks great on you Jane. I think the picture captures it perfectly. Great when you feel that your skin needs a little boost. x

  4. I think I prefer the look of this highlighter to MAC's strobe. Looks lovely and naturally glowy, will have to check it out when I'm next passing a counter. I love Lancome.

    Also really liking the colour of your eyeshadow in these pics too.


  5. Thanks Leanne, I'm pleased you can get the idea from the photos. It's a great fix for dull skin this time of year. I've not heard anyone mention it really but I think it's a hidden gem!

    Hi Mercee, definitely take a look. I haven't got Strobe Cream to compare with directly but I believe this is a lot more refined. The eyeshadow is Delicate Hummingbird and I have Eyes Wide Open pencil on in the inner corner and brow. More RBR food for thought ;)

  6. Haven't seen this one before...I have quite oily skin so I avoid anything that makes me look glowy as by the end of the day I just look shiny! My favourite cream highlighter however will always be Benefit's Highbeam :)

  7. Hi Kat, you know Highbeam is one I've often thought about but never tried. I really ought to give it a go one of these days. Thanks for your comment.
