Laura Mercier Spellbound


Isn’t she lovely? I recently caved in and purchased my first Laura Mercier product and it is absolutely a thing of beauty! Spellbound is a limited edition face illuminator recently released by Laura Mercier. For pictures and thoughts, keep reading!


I admit it, the main reason I wanted to purchase this product is because it is so nice to look it. It reminds me of satin sheets! I definitely didn’t need anymore highlighting products, but I kept wanting this for over a month so I finally decided to get it. This highlighting powder is a pretty golden shade that has rose undertones. I wouldn’t classify it as a rose gold because it is definitely more gold. I think it is a shade that would work well on any skintone.



The texture of this product is one of the nicest I have felt. It is so soft to the touch that it almost feels creamy. It blends very easily on the skin to provide a subtle highlight, but the color can be built up.

Pictures don’t really show all the dimension of this highlighter, but hopefully you can tell that I was not able to find an exact dupe for Spellbound. The closest in my collection is MAC Whisper of Gilt, however Spellbound has that rosy undertone that I really like.

Overall, I’m happy with Laura Mercier Spellbound. It is rather expensive, but the texture, tone, and presentation of it make it worth the money to me.

Have you tried any Laura Mercier products? What do you recommend from the line?

  1. Thank you for all your great reviews. I got my hands on the tarte bronzer hotel heiress. Let me say that I absolutely love it! I am a nc 45 or nc 50 at Mac and never thought a bronzer would work for me. I am glad that I am following your blog and your tube channel. Keep the reviews coming. I hope I don’t go broke watching you…lol
    Have you tried the new nars radiant compact foundation? I would be interested in your thoughts about it. Have a wonderful weekend 🙂

    1. Yay! I’m glad you were able to get a bronzer that works for you! I actually ordered the new Nars foundation, so expect a video on that soon! Thanks for the kind words and for supporting my blog! 🙂

  2. Like Robin I bought a bronzer covergirl ebony bronze and it is giving me a glow out of this world and actually makes for a gorgeous blush. I have not tried a highlighter yet as I have oily skin and I’m not sure if it would be too much. Thanks for the posts I love your concise writing style.
