Laura Mercier Gold Radiance is a moderately warm-toned, very light gold with a pearl finish. It is a limited edition highlighter that retails for $45.00 and contains 0.3 oz.
Gold Radiance is a pale gold with stronger, warm undertones and a barely-there sheen. It appeared shinier when I initially swatched it on my arm, but I couldn't get that level of glow on my cheekbones--it ended up having more of a satin-level shine on me. It had more opaque pigmentation with a lightly dusty texture that felt drier and almost chalky to me. The color wore well for seven and a half hours on me before fading visibly.
