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.
