Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Powder Natural Finish Highlighter for All Ages, Skin, and Color Review


I have always enjoyed the quality of Laura Mercier products. LAURA MERCIER Matte Radiance Baked Powder Compact is a very popular fashion and the stars makeup artist who created her beauty line. 
 Laura Mercier is not only a high-quality product but a savvy chic cosmetic, body and bath, fragrance, and skincare line. I had come in contact with Laura Mercier by going into my favorite Sephora store and also searching the Laura Mercier products through their website. 
Fascinated watching how the fashion models would get their makeup done. There are some makeup looks I adore and others that would not fit right for my face and personality. I believe that the makeup you wear and how you present yourself is important. 
Reasons and Mood of My Makeup Styles: 
The way I do my makeup is due to my mood, personality, and also if I would like to look supernatural with a touch of glow and color or just simply the strobe look.
My first introduction of strobing was watching how the fashion models had their faces all young looking, plump, and gleaming.   Through my exploration of strobing at a Sephora store.  I had come in contact with the Laura Mercier matte radiance baked powder. I automatically know this is part of my go-to glow kit and set collection. 
Best subtle highlighter:  I could finally wear a highlighter over my cheekbone to work and not look over glamours or unprofessional.
Combination Skin: I have combination skin and this product would go perfectly with a person who has either combination skin, oily, or dry. 
Good Oily or Dry skin: My skin is dry in some places and oily in others. This powder does not cake with the dry skin or get soaked by the oils of your skin. This is perfect for any person who would like to have that nice touch of healthy glow to their faces. 
Packaging: The bulky packaging is a downside to this fabulous little compact highlighter. 


It stays on your face for at least 8 hours of you has not rubbed it off by mistake. You will see a little gleam still showing but not as much as before. You need to reapply after that time.

Luminosity for any occasion:

The LAURA MERCIER Matte Radiance Baked Powder Compact is not overpowering to give you an intense glow or make you sparkle or gleam like lights on a Christmas tree unless you build it up many layers on top of the other. You can have one swipe of the Laura Mercier on your skin to give you that luscious subtle pop.

Age: This highlighter is perfect for any person of any age who would like to highlight their cheeks or cheekbones because it is not intense and it is subtle. 

Appearance with no sparkle just a natural glow: 

It gives your face a no-makeup look that is fresh, radiant, and vibrant. It is not powdery when you apply it on your skin and it just melts into your skin like it is part of you.

How to use: 
 I would use a fan brush.

Best highlighter for flaws such as acne: 

I have some deep acne scars where I would not like to have shown and accentuated. This is the only highlighter I have seen so far that does not emphasize my acne scars. 

Where to highlight: I would highlight over the top of my cupid’s bow (that is over the very top of my lips), over my cheekbones, a little bit on my chin, and below my eyebrow bone. 

It is always best to use a brush applicator such as a blush brush or best a fan brush to highlight your cheeks and other areas you think need that extra boost of gleam.
