Laura Mercier Candlelight Luminizing Face Color Palette

Beauty’s been obsessed with highlighting for a while, but one thing isn’t trendy: the price of highlighting powders. Often, brands like Chanel and YSL Beauté offer up limited-edition highlighting compacts that are, well, expensive. And yes, part of it is the exclusivity of the line, but even labels like MAC put a premium on their shimmering powders (plus, MAC’s often sell out in seconds). Leave it to Laura Mercier, the brand you go to for real makeup workhorses, to offer up the perfect highlighter — plus plenty more — in one do-it-all palette.

The Laura Mercier Candlelight Luminizing Face Color Palette ($58) isn’t just a highlighter, though it does offer up plenty of options for that. In addition to a selection of eyeshadows, you’ve got two colors to choose from (take that, Chanel). But here’s the thing: you can 100% use those eye colors as highlighters, too. They’re subtle, shimmery and super soft. So while Ms. Mercier calls them eyeshadow, feel free to sweep any of the shades on your cheekbones. What about the proper highlighters? You’ve got one bronze shade and a pinker shade (they double as blushes, too) that work perfectly together and alone. Feel free to go in and sweep the shades all over your face — in true Laura Mercier style, you can’t go over the top with these finely milled powders. Add a cute illustration on the palette and you’ve got the perfect holiday addition to your makeup collection.
