In the spirit of all things unicorn and mermaid, holographic-themed products have been on the rise. And news of the Laura Mercier Lightstruck Prismatic Glow Palette has further reinforced our love for the this trend. The brand beloved by makeup artist, bloggers, and celebs has drawn inspiration from this optical lighting illusion to create one magnificent palette.
At first glance, the 3D palette looks like something that should fall out of a shooting star. The array of galactic colors reflecting off of it is rather otherworldly. However, the true strobing magic lies inside. Within the palette you’ll find five multi-dimensional crème highlighters, all based off of the way light reflects on different objects. The whimsical shades (which are perfectly named I must add) include, Aurora (a peachy pink), Reflect (a bronze), Prism (a bright yellow-gold), Beam (a silver), and Ray (a sand). While each of these will undoubtedly look amazing on their own, these hues were specifically crafted to be layered on top of each other. Laura Mercier reps recommend you begin by applying a layer of Aurora all over your face to create a warm base, then for a sheer glow they recommend layering Reflect or Prism. If you’re looking for more of a dewy finish they suggest combining Beam with Ray.
As an avid fan of the brand’s illuminators—who lives for Laura Mercier’s Face Illuminator in Indiscretion—I am beyond excited for this launch, and cannot wait to create my own glow combo with this kit. Luckily, we won’t have to wait too long to get our hands on this shimmering kit. The palette will be available exclusively at Sephora for $52, starting March 2017.
