Laura Mercier sticking to what makes her the most $$$

Laura Mercier gets me every time.....

Up until recently, I never would have called my self a highlighting fan. That was until July of 2013 which we shall forever memorialize as "HIGHlight-O-Pocalypse." I do not know what came over me, but all of a sudden I was raptured by the urgent desire, nay desperate need to be swimming in shimmery highlighters. 

This MAY have something to do with Mrs Laura's insistence on releasing yet another Limited Edition  highlighting powder. Spell bound is just..... i cant i cant...... its joy in a jumpsuit. Behold Rose Gold Goodness

I purchased this little beauty from Nordstrom, and at $42 for 10 grams, she aint cheap. So should you take the leap and make a commitment or just a one night stand? Well Nordies describes this as: 

"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 color."

Now all that being said, what i can tell you is that this is not a run out the door, apply with a grubby finger and look instantly like a 15 yr old (Where is that?, ill take 2) type deal. It is so very pigmented that you will need to test out different application methods and find the best fit for you and your makeup style. I like taking a Real Techniques setting brush, and after diffusing the pigment a little one my hand, applying to my face-y face giving that ever-saught after candle-light glow. This is warmer in tone that i usually prefer, but hey....whatcha gonna do, right???

Price: $42
Limited Edition: Oh Yeah, all the greats are
So do YOU need this? Nope
Should you get this? Yep, definitely check on it yall
Would i repurchase: Absolutely
Would i buy a back-up: Nah life's to short
Issues: Yes the packaging is to big, and the closing mechanism opens to easily

On a side note, the design pressed into the powder looks like silk sheets after the best sex of your life..... Laura you temptress.
