Is anyone else completely over the highlighter trend?! Everywhere I look, brands are releasing super pigmented highlighters. It seems that all of the beauty gurus on YouTube are all about that “in your face” highlight. For me, I am just not a fan of that look and as a result, I have found that I have not enjoyed any of the highlighters that I have tried recently. Well, let me restate that – I USED to not enjoy highlighters until I discovered the PERFECT highlighter: the Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Powder in the shade 01.
In my opinion, the Laura Mercier Matte Radiance is the perfect highlighter. It does exactly what a highlighter should do: it provides a subtle yet gorgeous glow from within. It adds slight dimension to your face and makes you look more radiant, more healthy and more youthful.
This powder comes in 4 shades and I received the highlight shade 01. This powder is super finely milled and contains ZERO glitter. I found that it did not emphasize any of the texture on my skin, even when I built up the highlighter. This product is just easy. It is really nice to work with and impossible to “overdo” it. I think this would also be the perfect highlighter for someone with mature skin.
The packaging is slightly bulky and much larger than I expected. However, it feels sturdy and substantial and I have felt very comfortable tossing it into my travel makeup bag (unlike a lot of the highlighters in my collection).
In my opinion, the brand Laura Mercier makes some of the best powder products on the market. The Secret Brightening Powder is one of my favorites for setting my concealer and the Translucent Powder has been my favorite setting powder for years. I am excited to add the Laura Mercier Baked Radiance highlighter to my collection and you NEED this product (even if you are not a fan of highlighters).
