Sunlight

Chantecaille Sunlight Face Illuminator ($45.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a soft orange with a sparkling, golden sheen. It had medium coverage, which was buildable to semi-opaque coverage, with fine shimmer that managed to sparkle and reflect light well but did not read glittery on my skin. The texture was drier to the touch and didn’t feel as “luxe” to the touch as I would expect at this price point, but it looked fantastic applied and blended out with ease in practice. It’s more like a highlighting bronzer (for some skin tones) than strictly a highlighter. The brand doesn’t offer much insight into coverage, only with respect to the finish (“beachy glow”). It wore well for eight hours on me before fading slightly.

P.S. — Please note the compact size/product size, as it is smaller than most highlighting products on the market.

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

It is very lovely applied, but also a more “generic” type of shade. So, for that reason alone, this is a no-go for me. Besides, I think I may have drowned myself in highlighters over here!
