Laura Mercier Fall In Love Face Illuminator Collection

Laura Mercier Fall In Love Face Illuminator Palette ($58.00 for 0.44 oz.) includes four, miniature-sized versions of the permanent Face Illuminators. It’s pretty neat, as they have the same swirled, raised design, but everything is on a smaller scale. For someone who likes different highlighter shades (or highlighting blushes/bronzers) and would use two or three of them, it’s handy to have and would be good for traveling. 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. I think that the palette versions are fairly comparable to the permanent versions I have, though there are a few differences that I noticed. I don’t think that those differences really impact the overall look of the products applied, but they are there. This formula (and thus palette) is most suitable for someone who likes moderate highlights and some sparkle but not over-the-top metallic highlighters.

Sneak Peek: Laura Mercier Laura’s Leading Ladies Lip Set Photos & Swatches

Laura's Leading Ladies
Laura’s Leading Ladies

Laura’s Leading Ladies ($298.00 for 2.05 oz.) includes 15 full-sized lip products–five glosses, 10 lipsticks. There are five shades, which are then repeated across the Lip Glace, Creme Smooth Lip Colour, and Velour Lovers Lip Colour formulas. It’s a real whopper of a holiday mega set! The shades are held in a large, glossy jewelry box, and each of the velvet containers that hold the lipsticks are removable.

The brand also has three Iconic Leading Lady Lip Duos, which feature a Velour Lovers Lip Colour and Lip Glace set, that include shades featured below (Catherine, Sophia, and Vivien) — I wish they had more of these shades available individually or in smaller sets, though!
