liquid lumière

Presenting the skincare-infused highlighter that instantly illuminates skin.

Written By JAYME CYK


When Olivia Chantecaille, the creative director of her family’s namesake brand, set out to make the perfect highlighter in 2014, she was adamant about formulating the finest-size particles. “I’m a fanatic about pearl size and texture,” says Chantecaille. “I wanted to create something that felt more like skincare and less like makeup.” Mission accomplished. Packed with a botanical blend of bamboo, pea extract, and glucosamine to boost collagen, this highlighter not only delivers a brighter complexion, but also helps firm and smooth skin. “The Liquid Lumière gives the effect of a healthy glow,” says Chantecaille. “It doesn’t look like you’re wearing makeup, but as though you just had a facial.”


“This highlighter is so versatile, you don’t have to use multiple products to create one look. I use it on the eyelids and cheekbones, I mix it with lipstick, and I even apply it to the décolletage.”—Kira Nasrat, makeup artist

“It gives a pretty, soft, glossy luster to the skin. It has a moist finish that looks lovely without large, chunky glitter or shimmer particles. It looks pretty on the eyes, too.”—Fiona Stiles, makeup artist

“I love this product. I use a tiny amount to give an allover glow on the face and neck. I also add it on the eyelids, cheekbones, and lips. Then all you need is a good brow and lashes. I also like that the formula is super fine—it’s subtle and not brassy looking.”—Jo Strettell, makeup artist

“I love the Chantecaille Liquid Lumière Highlighter! It’s sheer and easy to blend. Perfect for the everyday woman to dip her toe into the highlighting or strobing trend.”—Molly R. Stern, makeup artist
