Laura Mercier Face Illuminator in Spellbound

Hey guys,

Today I am going to be reviewing the Laura Mercier Face Illuminator in Spellbound from the Dark Spell collection.

What Laura Mercier says about this product :

A beautiful face illuminating hybrid product with a soft rose gold shimmer perfect for highlighting. The unique formula based on high pearl levels provides buildable long-wearing colour.

Effortlessly highlights cheeks, eyes and décolleté with pure light-reflecting pigments for a colour-true, multi-dimensional luminous finish
Provides natural radiance to complexion for an instant healthy glow
Lightweight formula with a smooth, soft, creamy texture is comfortable to wear
Bouncy texture allows for excellent colour payoff
Applies smoothly and evenly onto face without dragging on skin or dusting
Long-wearing formula; wears all day (8 hours)
Stays colour-true and does not fade throughout the day
Designed to complement all skin tones
Versatile formula can be used on face, cheeks and eyes
Dermatologist and Ophthalmologist tested
Suitable for all skin types, even sensitive
Size: 10.00g/0.35 oz.

What I think about this product:

First of all the packaging is simple and classy. 
The product itself has a beautiful satin scrunched look. 
The texture is creamy and blends like a dream. 
The colour of the highlighter is a rose gold with a shimmer which is not glittery.
 For lighter skin tones this can work as a blush as it has some colour, but for darker skin tones, only as a highlighter.
Since it has warm undertones, it suits cooler and warmer skin equally.
It lasted about 7 hours on me and then faded evenly.
It retails for $60 in Australia and $42 in the US. I bought mine from Myer.

I think this is a gorgeous product for those who are looking for a highlighter that works on all skin tones. I must warn you this is limited edition so pick one up before it sells out.
