Laura Mercier's New Holographic Palette Is The Adult Version of Unicorn Makeup
And we're here for it.
In a world full of mermaids and unicorns, it's easy to get sucked into the shiny, shimmery trend. But flash forward to that moment you're standing at the counter in Sephora looking all the magical beauty products promising to transform you into a next-level fairy princess, and you start to think to yourself, how on Earth and I'm going to wear this IRL? Sure, purple and blue powders make for a killer Insta, but how do they translate to a standard Monday morning when you have 10 minutes to hide a weekend's worth of dark circles? (Trust us, that purple shimmer just isn't gonna cut it when you're lugging a laptop and latte into a board meeting.) Enter Laura Mercier's Lightstruck Prismatic Glow Palette.
Yes, it has that holographic packaging that gives heart palpitations to any beauty lover, but Laura Mercier's version of the trendy highlighting palette is, dare we say it, so refined. With five crème highlighters that are designed to mimic light refracting and reflecting off objects, you can use each shade separately or blend and build them together to create a magical, natural prismatic effect.
The shades include Aurora—a flushed pink, Reflect—a bronze, Prism—a gleam of gold, Beam—a mystical silver, and Ray—a fair nude. And unlike many other palettes that promise a Sailor Moon-like glow, this one is actually wearable. Apply Aurora all over—eyes, cheeks, face—for a warm touch. If you're wanting to up the ante, put user-friendly Reflect or Prism on your cheeks to get an everyday sheen. And if you're really going for it, use Beam or Ray for some added wow. Yep, there's not a single shade that leaves us wondering if we resemble a mystical creature—or rather, someone who only wishes she was one.
Bottom line: We're looking at a less-than-five-minute face that embraces the holographic trend in the most wearable, adult way possible. We might not look like Sailor Moon, but that's fine—we'll take girl boss instead.
The Laura Mercier Lightstruck Prismatic Glow Palette will be available exclusively at Sephora for $52 this March.
