Highlight 01:

Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Powder in Highlight 01 ($36US/7.50g) is the only highlighter offered as part of the New Matte Radiance Baked Bronzer Collection.  This product is fabulous!  Highlight 01 is smooth, non glittery, can be used wet or dry, and lasts all day!!  It gives the skin a refined luminous glow.  The beautiful peach/pink hue combination is perfect for both warm and cool skin tones.  This powder is also fragrance free and paraban-free.  One would use this product in all the usual places; top of cheek bones, inner corner highlight, top of cupid’s bow, down the bridge of the nose, etc..  Laura Mercier Highlight 01 also works very nicely on top of a cream highlighter.  It does not cake or get patchy, quite the opposite, it maintains a radiant glow all day long.  I pair Highlight 01 with my trusty Laura Mercier Baked Bronzer in Ritual; they are my dynamic duo!

THE VERDICT:  If makeup could talk what would it say?

Makeup would say it is very pleased with the new addition to our highlighter family.  Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Powder in Highlight 01 is a subtle highlighter that will please the ultimate highlighter fanatic.  Highlight 01 is not too showy or glittery, it gives off a radiant youthful glow!  Will people mistake you for being 20 years younger?  Maybe.  Remember you are as young as you feel….and I feel 18……Giddy up!  Be well and stay safe.

    Hi! do you know if this will be permanent? I am serously considering getting a back up of Ritual, but this beauty is sooooo tempting too…..

      Hello Monica,
      I would get a backup of Ritual if I was you, seeing how it is limited edition. The Highlighter is gorgeous for sure, but how often do you go through highlighters? I believe my LM highlight 01 will last me my lifetime. I hope my perspective was helpful. Thanks for stopping by.

        Thanks!
        Actually I went to the store in my lunch hour to get the Ritual, but it is sold out! oh well…
        I didn´t get the highlighter, as I was told is part of the permanent line.
        BTW cute blog! hope you continue with the nice work =D Cheers from Mexico.

  2. Your comments always make me feel younger and refreshed with a different focus of uses of products and applications of them. Great photo’s and lighting in your presentations, it really makes you feel like you are right there explaining it live. Using actual application on skin shots really show the effect of package to reality.
