Laura Mercier Mood Glow & Mood Lights Face Illuminator Trios

I don't know about you, but I have a bit of an obsession with highlighters these days. So when I saw the new Laura Mercier Face Illuminator Trios, I was super excited to try them! There are two Face Illuminator Trios in the Holiday 2018 collection : Mood Glow and Mood Lights. These long-wearing powders are designed to complement all skin tones and the luminous finish is supposed to be customizable to your heart's desire!

Laura Mercier Mood Glow Lights Face Illuminator Trios Review Photos Swatches

Both trios contain the shades Indiscretion and Devotion, but each palette features a new limited-edition shade : Ambition (Mood Lights trio) and Flirtation (Mood Glow trio). These two new shades are less shimmery than the permanent Laura Mercier Face Illuminators, they add a beautiful glow to the skin!

The two permanent shades (Indiscretion and Devotion) have a shimmery finish, but Devotion is slightly more frosty and sparkly. They aren't very metallic like most new highlighters tend to be, but they aren't subtle by any means. The formula feels a bit dry to the touch, but it doesn't look powdery on the skin.

Much to my surprise, I was able to wear the shade Indiscretion even when I'm not tan (and my skin is very pale without self-tanners!), as long as I apply it with a light hand.

The color Flirtation is silky smooth in comparison to the other shades, while Ambition has a similar texture than Indiscretion and Devotion (slightly dry to the touch).


I hope the shade Ambition will be added to the permanent range because I fell in love hard for this gorgeous color. It adds the most beautiful pink glow to my skin, the shimmers are very finely milled so I can use it as a finishing powder if I want an all over glow. It looks amazing on fair skin and it's not too white for medium complexions, but it may look ashy on deeper skin tones.

The other limited-edition shade (Flirtation) is a bit more shimmery than Ambition, but it's not an intense luminizer either. This one isn't too dark for fair skin tones (it doesn't look orange on me when my skin is pale), and it looks good on tan skin too. I'm not sure if it would be too light for deeper complexions though.

Oh and by the way, they last all day on me! (more than 12 hours)
