Many of you know, I love highlighters.  I live for highlighters.  I am your YOU GLOW GIRL. Highlighters are my jam.  However, I cannot say I feel the same way for liquid highlighters or illuminators let alone one that comes in a click-pen container.  Let's start with the overall packaging of the  product.  The packaging is simple but classy and sleek.  The silver box with black typography with the embossed Lancome logo is nothing to be surprised about.  The container is a clear plastic (this allows you to see the color of the highlighter) pen-like contraption with a push-button aka click button mechanism that discharges the product.  At the end of the container, there is cushion and oval cushion tip where the product comes out.  The cap made of solid black plastic.  It contains .08 Oz or 2.4 mL of product, which is a small amount for the price.

Not only did the liquid formula made me weary about this product, the push button mechanism and the cushion tip added to that anxiety.  But I guess, do not judge a book by its cover, right? So the skeptic in me really thought about all things that could go wrong with this product.  First, I expected the product to be really sticky and difficult to apply.  I also expected the push-button mechanism to take several clicks to dispense the product.  Well, I was wrong in all aspects.  With all products with cushion tips, just out of habit, I do not apply them directly on my skin.  I squeeze, or in this case, click the product out on the back of my hand or my stainless steel mixing palette to avoid getting natural oils into the cushion and possible bacteria growth.  When Lancome named this as "Click & Glow", they meant serious business.  It took one click to get the product out on to the back of my hand.  The product is creamy but not thick at all.  It is very easy to blend on the back of my hand and upon application on the high points of my cheeks. While the contents of the product is small for its price, this may last a while due to its pigmentation and a little goes a long way.  It is not sticky at all and does not move the other products on my cheeks such as bronzer or blush when applying this illuminator.  I really enjoyed using this liquid highlighter.

Would I purchase one? As much as I enjoyed this product, I prefer powder or pressed forms of highlighters than liquid ones, so having said that, I will not purchase a new one for myself.
