In the past six months or so I have really been getting into Laura Mercier products, and have been wanting to try one of their Face Illuminator highlighters, but I don't have a Laura Mercier counter nearby and at £32.00 each, I couldn't decide which shade I would use the most.
However, on a recent trip to Meadowhall Shopping Centre, I popped into House of Fraser and the Laura Mercier concession stand were selling some of the Christmas collection off at half price and I spotted the Mood Glow Face Illuminator Trio had been reduced from £40.00 to £28.00, meaning I would be able to try three shades for less than the price of one.
You know I bought it. The palette itself is gorgeous, full of rose gold and grey and a real joy to own. Once you open up the palette there is a mirror on the inside of the lid, and then the three highlighters nestled neatly in their pans. The three shades you get in the palette are Indiscretion, a light peach shade, Devotion, a light champagne colour and Ambition, a warmer nude shade. Each one has a shift to them, making them iridescent and giving the most beautiful highlight look.
The highlighters are finely milled and highly pigmented, but that is definitely something you would expect from Laura Mercier, as they are a high-end makeup brand. I have quite fair skin and Devotion and Indiscretion look super pretty on my skin, whereas I will probably use Ambition once my skin has a little more colour to it, as this is a warmer shade. However, with all highlighter palettes, I do always advise that the colours can always be worn as eye shadows, and so don't be afraid to purchase one, as there will never be pans that go to waste.
You can get two other shades of the Face Illuminators, but they are too dark for my skin tone, so I am really, really pleased with this palette, and I am so glad I managed to pick it up in the sale. I can no longer find this palette online, but you can find Laura Mercier in-store and online at House of Fraser.
All the Loves,
