Laura Mercier Indiscretion03Laura Mercier’s Face Illuminator Powder in Indiscretion ($42) is a rose gold highlighter with a gorgeous texture. Thankfully, there is no overspray (those days seem to be over! yay!), but rather this is a ultra fine metallic pressed powder. Gorgeous!

Some of you might recognize a similar pattern and format of Laura Mercier Indiscretion, especially if you picked up Laura Mercier’s Spellbound a year or two ago. I found the products identical–perhaps a variation that is typical going from batch to batch. If you do have Spellbound, in my opinion you do not need Indiscretion. Here are some side-by-side swatches.

By my eye, in real life I saw no difference. You might see a slightly different shine on one swatch versus another, and slight differences in the pan. To me, Indiscretion looked slightly lighter in the pan. But these are variations that might be typical of batch variations that I frequently see in shopping on different coasts or buying two products several months apart.

  1. Thanks so much for this comparison. I was wondering since I have Spellbound already, it doesn’t look like I need Indiscretion after all. I like the name “Spellbound” more 😉

  2. Ohhh I noticed this powder on the sephora website last week and it piqued my curiosity!! You just in time did a review because I was going to purchase it and now I defintely am!! Thank you

  3. I also have Spellbound and so I’m very appreciative of your side-by-side comparison, Amy. I don’t mind when a product is repromoted as it gives us the opportunity to pick up a product that we might have missed the first time around, but what’s wrong with using its original name? Changing the name without changing the product in some significant way seems a tad deceptive to me 🙁 I find it a nuisance when I buy a “new” product only to discover I already have the exact same product in my stash.

    I can’t speak to Indiscretion, but Spellbound was a lovely product and anyone who missed it, should definitely take a look at Indiscretion if they like rose gold. LM knows how to do that color right 🙂

  4. Gosh they are pretty much identical!

  5. This is such a stunning product!

  6. I love how the product is shaped in the pot! That’s amazing! Gosh. I’m such a sucker for pretty packaging it might make me buy it haha. x

  7. This looks so amazing, but yep, they look identical.
