It is exactly the same as last year’s Spellbound. I strongly would have rather the brand use the same name, because I didn’t know until I received the product and went, “This seems familiar.” It’s a lovely, moderately luminous highlighter otherwise. Laura Mercier describes it as “buildable long-wearing color” to highlight the face. The texture is soft, lightweight, very blendable, and very slightly emphasizes pores at times. I noticed if I used a fan brush, it was fine, but if I used a highlighting or blush brush, there was slight emphasis. The color lasted for eight hours on me.
