Kjaer Weis Cream Highlighter – My Favourite

Kjaer Weis Cream Highlighter in Radiance – shown in daylight.

This is youthful dewy looking skin in a pan. Period. I’m talking about the Kjaer Weis Highlighter In Radiance.

This highlighter gives my (sometimes dull looking) skin a natural looking well hydrated, smooth and fresh appearance. All within the “no makeup”-makeup spectrum. See it in action on my skin in my video here

My Point Of No Return Highlighter

It’s definitely my all time favourite cream highlighter (and that’s quite a statement!) – a point of no return product – so after trying this, a highlighter has never been the same. Every other highlighter gets compared to this and quite literally nothing compares: The creamy texture (without melting away), the longevity (lasts all day. Yes, all day!), the subtle shimmer and cool pink undertone – LUSH!

Brilliant For Mature Skin

Powder products can settle in the fine lines of our skin and emphasize the appearance of wrinkles (that maybe wasn’t visible before). Thus, picking a cream product like the Kjaer Weis Cream Highlighter is a smarter choice for a more mature skin, giving the skin a smoother look. Plus one of the world’s biggest makeup artists, Lisa Eldridge, loves it too (it’s a no-brainer!).

Dab dab dab

I prefer to apply it with my fingers (warming up the product) instead of a stippling brush, so I don’t disrupt the underlying foundation. I dab it on my cheekbones, brow bones, on the bridge of my nose and on my cupid’s bow.

    Hmmm…I was considering the Charlotte Tilbury one because it looked so amazing on you in your fall make up birthday video, but this is a natural high-end brand….perhaps I will go with this instead.
    Too many choices in this world, hahah! Luxury problems! 😉

      It is truly a stunning highlighter. I’m hitting pan, as you can see. So need to buy a refill soon. This KW highlighter is free from endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs), so a good choice if you prefer to reduce your exposure to EDCs. XO Cæcilie

      Charlotte Tilbury is not a “green brand” in any way. She uses several suspected endocrine disrupting chemicals. So I only use her products on special occasions.
      Kjær Weis is a good choice if you wish to avoid known EDCs.

      It’s a beautiful product. Kjær Weis has just come out with a new highlighter called Ravishing with golden undertones and more finely milled shimmers. Now I’m eager to try it <3

    Hi Caecilie, thank you for the post! By the looks of it, it does appear to be THE natural highlighter.

    What also caught my eye was your eyeshadow in the last photo. I see this post is close to two years old but was wondering if, by any chance, you remember what you had on 🙂

      Hi there,
      the eyeshadow is from a limited edition Charlotte Tilbury palette called Fallen Angel

    What are you wearing on your eyelids in the last photo? It’s gorgeous! Is it also the radiance? I stumbled on your blog after searching for best Kjaer Weis colors on Pinterest. Thanks!
