 photo laura-mercier-spellbound-face-illuminator-5jpg.jpgIt truly was a magical moment when I was first introduced to Laura Mercier's 'Spellbound' Face Illuminator; With just one swatch I was sold. Despite being on the larger side, this beauty is encased in very sturdy plastic packaging with a handy mirror included. Although Spellbound is a powder highlighter, when applied it's texture is more creamy and is really buttery and easily blended into the skin. The rose gold shimmer adds some life to the complexion and is pigmented enough to be built up to your desire. I gently dust the product on the tops of my cheekbones and my browbone to add some radiance without overdoing it. The best thing is that I'm still glowing when I come home at the end of the day. Do I even need say anything about the beautiful embossment? I think it speaks for itself...

Although limited edition & a little pricey at £31, this is just stunning! You'll still be able to snap it up somewhere as my boyfriend managed to! I'd love to know which highlighters you like to use and what your initial thoughts are on Spellbound. Were you lucky enough to pick it up? Make sure to let me know in the comments - Thanks for reading!

  4. I love how shimmery it is but I think perhaps it's a little dark for my pasty skin!
