Chambor Light & Sheer Skin Highlighter Review

by mehak on April 18, 2014

in Highlighters


Highlighter, chocolate and coral..3 permanent weaknesses. There are some non permanent weaknesses like Orange bar in summers, and my VS pj’s in the winter, but those 3 are always up there to get me weak kneed. In terms of higlighting ,im actually pretty loyal to the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick but it does have a strong color in it so I always wanted a colorless highlighter which I can add as a pop on top of my blush !

So when I saw the Chambor Light & Sheer Highlighter I was kind of intrigued. Its this champagne color which is always lovely and the consistency makes it the kind where you can mix with a foundation or put on top of your cheekbones.

If mixed with foundation: I dont recommend you do this because it does have shimmer specks that get distributed across your skintone. Not saying you will look like a disco ball but   shimmer quotient is negligible so I really cant deal with anything on my face that resembles a shimmer speck. If your shimmer quotient is higher then go ahead

If used as a regular highlighter: It does give a really nice glow and sheen specially on the cheeks. There isn’t any particular color except just a glow that this gives and makes your skin look dewy and gorgeous. It does look lovely, but my basic issue is that it doesnt give that diffused candle lit glow that highlighters I love give. Its hard to explain what it is I have an issue with  but I have to layer it to get the glow I want and when you do layer it the shimmer can get a bit scattered. Having said that though,  its still a nice product to own and one I recommend you go and buy if you are having a hard time finding a good highlighter in less than 1000 bux.

It lasts a good amount of time on my skin but girls with Oily skin may want to test out the wear time..

Left: No highlighter, Right: With highlighter

Read: How to Highlight & Contour Tutorial

Verdict: B+

Price: Approx 750/- should be released soon

Recommendation:  I know this is a bit of a confused review but the best way to put this is that this isn’t a “ABSOLUTE LOVE” highlighter for me, but its a nice addition to my stash for a dewy glowy look on your face. It gives a really pretty sheen and while I don’t recommend you mix it with foundation, you can definitely layer it on top for that glow.  My basic problem is that the shimmer in it can tend to dissapate a little bit and the highlighters that I love usually have pearlescent finishes that give a candle lit glow whereas this gives more of a look where you can spot some of the shimmer close up.

I love the nice sheen shimmer gives, but I somehow never get it right.
You have applied it so nicely. Looks lovely :)

I’m still a highlighter virgin, though I’ve been thinking of ordering the famous MaryLou-minizer… can you recommend a good drugstore highlighter to start with, Mehak?


Supria April 18, 2014 at 3:52 pm

It makes such a beautiful difference. PErsonally I would be scared to mix it with foundation. As a highlighter though it looks beautiful :) Your hand swatch looks scarily glittery ;)

Love the packaging of this one too. Looks very classic!


Manasi April 18, 2014 at 3:54 pm

OMG girl!! You are glowing!! look beautiful on you!


krithi April 18, 2014 at 3:57 pm

U look so pretty ,glowing :)


Embellished April 18, 2014 at 4:17 pm

It looks great on you. I’ve been on the hunt for a highlighter with absolutely no shimmer.

This looks nice but has very visible specks of shimmer…I know you dissed the MAC Strobe lotion Mehak but for me that gives just the kind of glow you’re mentioning! I mix it with everything these days…my normal face cream, my CC/BB creams, foundation and so on and bam! I have a sheer glow/healthy skin.


Peachesandblush April 18, 2014 at 6:34 pm

Really?? Need to retry that strobe cream n ow!


GlamCasa April 18, 2014 at 6:42 pm

I have oily skin, I’m very sure it will make me look oily instead of glowy! I hate that I can’t use shimmers and highlighters on my face.


Shreya April 18, 2014 at 6:56 pm

I love liquid highlighters … after reading your previous post I’m planning to get hush cream highlighter from mac


mily April 18, 2014 at 8:16 pm

i Love girl meets pearl…like this but more luminous….but it definitely makes a really noticeable difference

This seems to be good. The shimmer is more prominent at the back of your hand than you face….

By the way, you are looking pale… Too much workload, huh? :/

Absolutely Love your picture with the highlighter on………gives such a nice glow to your cheeks… although i am not a huge fan of the shimmer particles in the highlighters but the shimmer is not visible in the picture of you so only what we see is a sheen on your cheeks which is very glowy and dewy…..


Anamika April 19, 2014 at 12:05 pm

Looks really good


Vini @dndb April 19, 2014 at 1:38 pm

I have heard so much about this product! i need to go buy it asap!!


Swati April 19, 2014 at 4:26 pm

This reminds me so much of the Revlon Skinlights! I have not tried the newer version but I have the older once (since that quantity will last me a lifetime:P)


laks April 19, 2014 at 6:02 pm

Sounds great! I would love to try them. :)


Ramya UrsGorgeously April 19, 2014 at 10:02 pm

It looks truly pretty on you! Perfect sheen!


garima@cosmochics April 20, 2014 at 9:15 am

Your before and after pictures tell it all…looks so pretty on you


Richa April 20, 2014 at 5:58 pm

Vineetha April 21, 2014 at 1:47 am

This is nice! My favs would be Armani, Kevyn Aucoin and Becca these days. All liquid! ;-)


Bhumika April 26, 2014 at 2:48 am
