Laura Mercier Highlighter 01 Golden Nude-Review

Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Powder

This is my first ever highlighter, yes I know. It’s an exciting feeling, I was never into the whole “highlighting” trend. But I knew I wanted to grow my makeup collection and wanted something simple, not too dramatic and soft. I bought this Laura Mercier Radiance Baked Powder Compact from Sephora; when I went into Sephora I had my eye on the Hourglass Highlighter, but after discussing what the best wherein the store with the sales assistant, I knew that the Laura Mercier was the best option. This was precisely what I had in mind, I didn’t want to harsh of a glow.

This gives a natural glow; almost as if it’s coming from within. Like you have slept a full 8hours, drank 90 oz of water and moisturized your face; it’s that good. This is a sheer highlighter, you have the control of how much you can add. As opposed to some highlighters that with one swipe there’s a massive blob of shining aluminum tin-like glow on the face.  This highlighter is finely milled, has a cool-toned hue to it. I don’t know why they call this a “matte radiance” it’s not matte, so that’s the part that confuses me the most. I do not apply this all over my face, just like with any other highlighter, I apply on the high point of my face. The cheeks, brow bone, bridge of the nose and maybe on my chin if I am going out at night.

The price for the Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Powder is $42, comes in 5 different shades.

Yikes, I know the price point is a little bit up there in price, but its been 6 years and mine still haven’t cracked, fallen apart and I still didn’t hit pan! This highlighter is worth every penny.

What was your first highlighter and what was your experience with it?
