Makeup is incomplete without a dewy highlight that makes you glow that like the goddess that you are! Being a makeup artist, I have to keep in sync with both the trends and the needs of my clients.

Gone are the days when one higher was enough. Now different highlighters for different skin tone types and different looks are the order of the day.

My Experience with Laura Mercier Fall in Love Face Illuminator Palette

Laura Mercier Fall in Love Face Illuminator Palette 3

New addition to my highlighter collection. Pocket-friendly and travel-friendly, I love this palette.


This palette comes in a sturdy packaging with that signature leopard prints cover. Very classy I must say. They score full points for luxury!


Laura Mercier Fall in Love Face Illuminator Palette 5

Laura Mercier Fall in Love Face Illuminator Palette includes four powder based, miniature-sized versions of the permanent Face Illuminators:

  • Addiction (gilded gold highlight)
  • Devotion (cool highlight)
  • Seduction (soft bronze highlight)
  • Indiscretion (warm rose gold highlight)

It’s pretty neat, the same swirled, raised design, but everything is on a smaller scale. It is for someone who likes different highlighter shades and would use two or three of them…aka perfect for makeup artists!!

The product is buildable from medium to opaque coverage with a noticeable sheen. The texture is smooth and blendable, but there is a bit of dryness to it that seems common to these types of products.

On an average, the highlighter tends to last around eight hours. Though the stay of the product can be increased using other products like MAC Fix+ or Gerard Slay All Day!

Here are the deets of the shades:

Addiction (gilded gold highlight): a medium, yellow gold with warm undertones and a lightly sparkly, metallic finish. This is a tricky color but if you get it right it looks beautiful in sun kissed and ethnic looks


Devotion (cool highlight): This is a light pink highlighter with warmer undertones and cooler, violet and light pink shimmer. With sheer to medium coverage. It will never be too intense.


Seduction (soft bronze highlight): This is the darkest shade that I think will be excellent highlighter for deep skin tones. Very buildable, in fact use it with a light hand as it can give an opaque finish


Indiscretion (warm rose gold highlight): is a light-medium, rosy copper with warm undertones and a soft, golden sheen. Again buildable but use with a light hand.


Since the individual Illuminators are pricey, this is a good way to try them all for less than the cost of two full-sized shades.
