Lancôme Dual Finish Highlighter

Welcome back to Haley’s Beauty Room! Today I wanted to talk about one of the most stunning highlighters to ever hit the beauty scene, the Lancôme Dual Finish Highlighter Multi-Tasking Powder. As I have said many times, I am a highlighter junkie. Because of that, I have tried basically every highlighter imaginable.

After hearing reviews from gurus and seeing some swatches, I figured it was time for me to head on over to Ulta and check out what the fuss was all about.


The packaging is nothing new for a Lancôme product, but that doesn’t mean anything bad. The product comes in a sleek silver box that contains a black compact. This compact has a gold accent with “Lancôme” written on the side.

I really like that Lancôme keeps their packaging simple and classy. I think for them it is more about producing a high quality product than coming out with funky packaging. Simplicity is also great sometimes as well. As over the top that I am, I appreciate a sleek, sturdy compact.

Product & Performance

This highlighter currently comes in 5 different shades. This shade range is really good and I think that they selected colors that would work on every skin tone. Someone who is super pale to someone who is very dark can find a beautiful highlighter from this collection. The colors are as follows:

01 Shimmering Buff

02 Luminous Gold

03 Radiant Rose Gold

04 Dazzling Bronze

05 Sparkling Pêche

This product is supposed to be a creamy, powder texture that is enriched with vitamin E to effortlessly glide across the skin. It is also going to be non-drying and super lightweight.

You can apply this product wet or dry, depending upon how intense would like the finish. It is a very smooth powder that provides shimmer and sheen versus glittery chunks. This highlighter would be perfect for those that love an intense highlight, but don’t want any skin texture to be enhanced.

This highlighter is also incredibly long wearing. I think out of all of the highlighters that I own, from Jouer to Becca to Anastasia, this one stays on the longest and remains the most intense. I noticed a great sheen from the product after a 9 hour work day. All other highlighters would have faded by that point.

This highlighter does retail for $39.50. It is a more expensive highlight, but that is to be expected coming from Lancôme.

Final Thoughts

I 1000% love and recommend this highlighter. It is the only highlight that I have been wearing on a daily basis since I purchased this a few weeks ago. It glides onto your skin without looking chunky or uneven.

I really enjoy how long this last on my skin and how it doesn’t break apart throughout the day. This highlight is perfect for anyone as it will not enhance skin texture. It also works wet or dry, meaning you can achieve a natural daily look for the office, or you can build it up to blind your haters.

The five different shades in this product mean that any skin tone can achieve a beautiful highlight. I myself am thinking of buying more shades to use either as an eyeshadow or a highlight after I have fake tanned.

It is expensive. That is probably the only downfall of this product. However, I think it is worth it and not just because I love highlighters. This product is so versatile and can be built up as intense you like. Because of that, this highlight could be the only one in your collection. It stands out in a sea of glow and I think you should go check it out!
