Following the popular contouring trend, highlighter has become all the rage in the beauty world and it’s easy to see why. The magical powder adds dimension, brings out cheekbones and adds a healthy glow seen most glamorously on the Victoria’s Secret runway.
We recently struck it lucky and managed to grab the popular Becca x Jaclyn Hill highlighter alongside Laura Mercier’s ever-so-pretty Indiscretion illuminator. See our reviews below and enjoy getting your sheen on!
After finally getting my hands on the much anticipated collab with Jaclyn Hill, I can definitely understand why it broke Sephora’s record for most purchased prod on its release date. Marketed as a soft white gold with pinky peach undertones, it’s a buildable warm beam of glow that every beauty gal needs. This prod is peachier than the other Becca Shimmering Skin Perfectors, which means it delivers a healthy, sun-kissed glow, love !
The powder is super finely-milled, so no chunks of glitter in sight (tick!). For me, a light dusting is perfect for day-appropriate effortless glowing skin. I layer the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Moonstone underneath for a more evening-appropriate, ampted-up glow. This prod is super creamy so it layers perfectly to deliver VS Angel beauty goals.
For me personally, powder highlighters have never delivered the payoff promised, until I tried this baby. So if you can get your hands on one you’re in for a treat !
I had been coveting this b-e-a-utiful highlighter for absolutely ages, dying to get my mitts on the pretty powder. After numerous unsuccessful trips to the Laura Mercier counter at David Jones, I was pleasantly surprised to find the prod restocked online about a year after it’s release.
Initially, I was a little thrown by the chunky brown compact… I haven’t used Laura Mercier before and am a sucker for pretty packaging – think Charlotte Tilbury, Nars, Hourglass etc., and Laura Mercier seems a little old school. However, once opened, Indiscretion’s limited edition wave-textured powder is a delight on the eyes!
The colour is a coppery rose gold that leaves a bronze shimmer on the skin and looks great on top of your favourite bronzer. The illuminator also lasts a decent amount of time (I’ve tested 5+ hours) that’s god-sent.
Personal preference: I love lots of cheek glow and for that reason, prefer a powder that combines a bronze tint with champagne/pearly-white shimmer rather than Indiscretion’s straight-up copper highlight. The illuminator will certainly get a work out amongst my makeup routine however I prefer the more OTT finish of Mac’s Soft and Gentle and Becca’s Shimmering Skin Perfector in Moonstone. If you’re looking for a subtle bronze glow, snap up Indiscretion quick-fast while it’s still available!
You’ll notice in the above photos, both highlighters appear very similar in colour… We differentiate Champagne Pop as a little more of a bronze/champagne glow while Indiscretion is a pure bronze shimmer xx
