  • "the shade devotion is beautiful, and i just absolutely adore how these look in the pan. however, this is a highlighter, not an illuminator. you would look ridiculous w this all over your face as an ~illuminator~.. but as a highlight it is subtle and quite glittery. i don't mind that, but some might. frankly i just like how it looks on my vanity." in 91 reviews
  • "i definitely splurged on this highlighter after seeing the pictures of its beautiful packaging all over tumblr and instagram, as well as the fact that i love laura mercier. i have gotten the chance to try their silk cream foundation and bb cream, however this was my first time purchasing a powder. i will say, the packaging is absolutely to die for. i believe this comes in four different shades, i happen to have the shade "devotion" which is one of the lightest ones. after applying the product itself, i was a bit underwhelmed, i was expecting it to be "to the godssss" lol. it went on very smoothly, but thats about it. but, one time i decided to put a cream highlighter underneath, as a base. i used the benefit watts up, and let me just say it was "to the godssss". this highlighter by itself is pretty much standard and similar to many other highlighters available on the market, but once you layer it with a cream or liquid underneath, oh my goodness, your highlight will be out of this world poppin'! " in 73 reviews

Review for: Indiscretion, Seduction more...
me my top two picks are Indiscretion and Seduction for color and finish. I already own a lot of light pink highlighters but if you’re like me (medium or even darker) you might find many light pinks have a sharp almost white look on the skin so they require a light hand or lots of blending. If I didn’t already own so many I would hands down say Devotion is a must – it performs the best out of all the pale pinks I own because of the way it melds with the skin and just glows. The formula and texture is superior to other pale pink highlighters that I have.
I still have one more set of newer highlighters to review (the ones from Urban Decay) but out of all the ones that have recently launched, the Laura Mercier ones definitely have the best texture for my skintype, Hourglass Strobe Powders have a more subtle strobe effect, Anastasia Glow Kits are the most glowy and have the best value for price, I’m still undecided on the Urban Decay highlighters but will let you know my thoughts once I post the review.

Bottom line, the Laura Mercier Face Illuminator Powders are solid performers for quality, pigment, texture and lasting power. You can find them now at Sephora.

This product is nothing but beautiful. I have the champagne one and it honestly looks like it just melts into my skin. It is sheer and looks beautiful in light and out of light. I would recommend using it with a slow to dry foundation so you can go double and melt it into the foundation you wear!

Review for: Indiscretion more...
I received this highlight complimentary form Influenster and Laura Mercier. Indiscretion is a beautiful, shimmering, rosey copper color. I have fair skin (Fairly Light in bareMinerals for reference) and this was a bit too rich of a color to be a highlighter on me. I’ve been using it as an eyeshadow and I love it. I also let my sister, who has a deeper skin tone use it, and she loved it. The formula is really nice. It’s creamy and has a good amount of shimmer. It’s nothing out in space like, but just healthy and shimmering on your skin. It is pretty long lasting on the skin. The pan size is huge, so you get a lot of product for the money. I would definitely recommend this highlight!

First of all I would like to say that this product looks so beautiful against my skin. Shines so bright, it is my go to highlight! I received it for Christmas in 2017, and ever since have been using it. Perfect for nights out at the club or date night and even everyday makeup!

Review for: Indiscretion more...
I love how effective yet understated this illuminator is. This product is perfect to add color to your face when you're in a rush or to add a little luxurious highlight for a more glam look. Very subtle, yet brings your whole look together. The color is a perfect balance between a bronzer and a rose gold blush. One thing is that if you prefer a subtle glow then you may love these! Plus the packaging is beautiful but I gave it 4-star because the product doesn't really come out. I had to sweep on blush firmly multiple times go get the amount I want. Also, I dropped it once and the whole thing come off :( super sad because it doesn't stick back so now I've to be careful when I use it.

This product is a beauty in itself, just the packaging and the product design is so pretty!

As the other reviews point out, the highlight is beautiful when swatched but doesn’t pick up well with a brush. I assume it’s the pattern on the product and the ridges in the design but I think the formula plays a role as well. It’s a dryer formula and feels powdery. However, I don’t mind subtle highlights and find applying with your fingers and blending out works well.

The packaging is cool but very, very bulky. It’s not travel friendly but looks cool on your make up vanity. There is a lot of product and I can see it lasting a long time. I recommend if you’re looking for a subtle highlight!

Review for: Addiction more...
The addiction illuminator comes in beautiful packaging. The formula for this illuminating powder is average. The color is very beautiful for a a warmer darker skin tone. This product is good for oily to combination skin, it is a gold tone. It gives off a subtle “illumination” but by no means a blinding highlight. To me the price point (44$) is not worth it because i prefer a brighter finish. Though i recommend this to people who want a subtle glow, it really depends on what you are looking for.Laura Mercier Face Illuminator Powder

I think Laura puts out some of the best quality, prettiest illuminators out there. Illuminators have been all the rage for a couple years now and Laura is always a go to. Beautiful texture, not childish and glittery but high-quality great product
