L'Amour Exotique

Laura Mercier L’Amour Exotique Face Illuminator Collection ($58.00 for 0.44 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette with four highlighters–two are new to me and two are also available in the permanent range. I found all four shades to be consistent with the permanent formula, which has a slightly drier, almost looser texture to the touch (not uncommon for this type of formula) with medium to opaque coverage that lasted between seven and eight hours on me.

Value

The full-sized shades of the highlighter retail for $44.00 each and contain 0.35 oz. or $125.71/oz. The palette contains 0.44 oz. worth of product or $55.31 worth of product. It would not be a “value packed” palette from a quantity standpoint; the way it would be “value packed” is in the sense that the full-sized highlighters are rather pricey on their own, even though they are large, so for less than the cost of two standalone shades, you would be getting four. (The price vs. amount is also not drastically lower.) If you’re someone who does not typically pan their powder highlighters, the palette would definitely be worth trying if you like this type formula.

Girl Next Door/Chic Freak

Fenty Beauty Girl Next Door/Chic Freak Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter Duo ($34.00 for 0.24 oz.) contains a light, pinky-peach with a frosted finish and a deeper, more metallic peachy coral. The left side wasn’t as reflective as the right side, which had more visible sparkle and did emphasize my skin’s natural texture. Some might enjoy the intensity and shine of the right side even if it doesn’t have a smoothing finish, while others are loathe to draw attention to their skin’s natural texture. If you’re part of the latter, I don’t think that this formula (generally) will be the best fit.
