You Don't Know What You've Got Till It's Gone: Laura Mercier Highlight 01
As I have an upcoming high-end highlighter edit on its way, I wasn't going to share this post. But this post is entirely warranted. During 2016 my makeup stash saw an onslaught of highlighters, but the one highlighter I could always rely on to deliver pigment, longevity and a downright gorgeous glow on the daily, was the Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Powder in Highlight 01 (£28.50). And it wasn't until I polished it off that I discovered no matter what back-up highlighter I wore in it's place, nothing compared and as a result a repurchase HAD to be made.
A single sweep of this stuff using my Morphe M501 Pointed Blender Brush (£8.00) imparts the most beautiful lit-from-within glow without running the risk of looking sparkly and that's half the battle right? It's everything I need in an everyday highlight and one that I can admire all day long. The shade isn't too gold, white or bronze, which is perfect for my neutral/borderline cool undertone. TBH the best highlighters I've tried and tested have that beautiful opalescent finish. Its featherweight formula is faultless. The texture is incredibly silky, soft and smooth and blends beautifully on the skin and never emphasise my pores, no matter how much I apply. It's simply perfection and one underrated beauty product to add to your arsenal of Holy Grail's. Trust me, it's a good'un.
