Swatches ~ Laura Mercier Spellbound Face Illuminator


Spellbound Face Illuminator by Laura Mercier is breathtakingly beautiful. This illuminator was a part of the Laura Mercier Dark Spell collection. Just from the sound of it makes you think of mystical gothic thoughts and experiences.  I missed out on the last breathtakingly beautiful illuminator she released last Christmas which was called "Rose Rendevous".  That one sold out in stores pretty quickly, then sellers on eBay and Amazon had a field day inflating prices, so I ended up not purchasing that one at all.

This one is definitely a winner for me.  Though it's a little warm in color, meaning it doesn't have any deep hues that would blend in with my brown skin, I can make it work over a really pretty orange blush.  Sometimes highlighters look very shinny or glittery on me if they tend to not have any dark pigmentation within the color.

I would describe this illuminator as a rose mauve color, there's not any gold tones or pigments which I like because lord knows I have enough of those.  This illuminator does reflect light and can look a little shimmery if applied with a heavy hand. I would say just be safe when applying it and use a stifling or feathered brush that's not too dense.

I tend to buy very beautiful looking products and not wear them as much as I should.  Now for a gal in her 50's this isn't a good idea, I should be wearing all my stuff everyday even if it's to the grocery store.  I'm slowly pulling out my LE items, lately i've just been looking at them but I think i'll actually start using them.

You know blushes and highlighters are my weaknesses... what do you have a weakness for?
