The Laura Mercier Stardust Radiant Glow Palette is (still) my favorite all-around/multi-task palette. It’s difficult for me to set this aside when I need to rotate my makeup, which I do weekly.
The palette was released in part of Laura Mercier’s holiday collection last year. I fell in love with it at first sight, but I didn’t buy it right away. I tried hard to be a “wise consumer” by sleeping it off. Maybe I was just taken by how pretty it is. Then when I went on a vacation, I couldn’t stop thinking about it to the point I had to contact the SA for a reservation while still out of the country. 😂
There are three illuminating powders in this palette:
- Rosegold that I use as a subtle highlight or as a finishing powder when I use a matte foundation.
- Champagne has micro-shimmers. I rarely use this. When I do, I only need to lightly tap the powder. Otherwise, I might end up with white streaks on my cheekbones. 😛
- Bronze is the most pigmented and super glowy as it is in the pan, but with a light hand and a stippling brush, I love the bronze and glow it gives me. Sometimes I use this and Champagne as eyeshadows.
Each powder is 3g. The marbled powders make each palette unique. When I’m pressed for time, I use the fuchsia in the Bronze powder as a blush.
As for quality, the powders aren’t chalky, don’t feel gritty even if Champagne that has micro-shimmers, and blend easily. Like my other Laura Mercier powders, longevity is great for my oily skin. No fading even after 10 hours or even when I sweat.
The packaging doesn’t feel cheap; it actually feels sturdy, although it still needs handling with care. I also like the mirror in it.
I said I wouldn’t give an in-depth review since this is limited edition, but here we are. 😅 Anyway, I always liked Laura Mercier powders. I’m glad that even after a while of not buying anything new from the brand before this palette, the quality is still good. At least for their powders.
