In the spirit of all things unicorn and mermaid, holographic-themed products have been on the rise. And news of the Laura Mercier Lightstruck Prismatic Glow Palette has further reinforced our love for the this trend. The brand beloved by makeup artist, bloggers, and celebs has drawn inspiration from this optical lighting illusion to create one magnificent palette.
As an Influenster member(@Influenster and @LauraMercier and use the hashtags #lightstruck #highlighting and #contest), I received my Lightstruck Prismatic Glow Palette for FREE to test, and review - and I must say, I'm sort of in love. I haven't had much experience with creme highlighters, but I could definitely see myself using a few in the future.
Product Application Review:
The product is very light in pigment, which in the age of the FULL face during day time hours, is refreshing to see. A lot of other highlighters are so pigmented, that it can clash with foundation, or concealer, however this product goes right on top of whatever you're wearing and melts easily into the skin. I used the Aurora creme on my brow bone for a subtle pop, and used the Prism pigment on the apple of my cheeks, for a light golden hued glow. The creme's apply smoothly to the skin, and unlike pressed powders that sit on top of the skin - the creme highlighters absorb into your skin.
All Day Wear Review:
I wore this look for about 6 - 7 hours, and I only lost glow, towards the end of the my wear. Although the weather conditions weren't favorable, so that could play a major part in it. It's very humid in Atlanta year round, and now that we're in April, the rain plays another part in how your makeup interacts with your skin.
Out of 10, I would rate this product at an 8. I love how light it is, and how easily it absorbs into your skin, however I wish it was a little more pigmented (just a personal preference). Also, the hue options of the palette are sort of minimal for darker tones. I only use the Aurora, Prism, and on occasion Reflect. Lastly, pairing this product with the right setting spray is imperative. I used a matte setting spray, but the product only pops with dewy setting spray - just for that extra GLOW!
