Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Powder in 01 Highlighter.

Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Powder in 01 Highlighter.


I do not need another highlighter and you don't either but none of us can deny that we are always looking for more ... maybe that is just me .. but hey ! I bought this for us ... for us to decide if we need this or not , right ? RIGHT !

Laura Mercier  never fails to lure me in with new products or new caviar sticks :P . IMO most of her products have good quality and are decently priced. She usually releases a few new products or new additions to existing lines every now and then. This Summer she not only introduced new products , released a seasonal collection but also added new shades to her line . I was so excited to see new caviar sticks and the highlighter fiend in me was ECSTATIC to see new highlighters ! 

Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Powder in 01 Highlighter.

The Baked Radiance Powder line has two highlighters and 3 bronzer shades. I picked up the lightest highlighter shade to add to my ever growing highlighter collection . 

01 Highlighter looks like a white powder in the pan but on the skin it is a soft champagne . Now, this is not the Stila Kitten kind of champagne : this is more of a Kevin Aucoin Celestial powder, champagne . The powder is very soft and almost creamy to the touch and incredibly pigmented  . I found the highlighter to be quite loosely packed ,which can lead to a lot of fall out but that can be easily avoided if you use a light hand . 

I love how the powder melts in to my skin and just add a delicate radiance to the face without looking frosty or shimmery . I did not notice any shimmer or glitter in direct sunlight and wear time was between 6- 7 hours on top of liquid and powder foundation . 

Overall , if you have been dying to try the Kevin Aucoin Celestial powder or you have been looking for a highlighter that does not accentuate uneven skin texture then you NEED the Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Powder in 01 Highlighter. IMO skip the Estee Lauder powder gelĂ©e and try this baby out instead ! 

Price ?$36.00

  1. Thanks so much for the review. This looks like a stunning highlighter for light skin tones. Might be a bit too light for me. Are there also other tones?

  7. This baby is really really pretty! I swatched her in the store and loved the color. However, I prefer more subtle sheen and this has more shimmer than I want. A skip but still a big like! BTW, your swatches have been phenomenal lately Lipstick!!!
