Laura 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.
If you did miss Spellbound, you’ll want to strongly consider Indiscretion. These are beautiful highlighters, giving a gorgeous rose gold glow. Beautiful! Laura Mercier Indiscretion is currently available at Sephora.
