Laura Mercier Illuminator Rose Rendezvous // Favourite Highlighter

Finally, I've got my hands on what could be the most beautiful compact ever. 
After my local Laura Mercier concession at John Lewis constantly being out of stock, and it being taken off of the display completely in Selfridges, London, I was thrilled to see it in stock at SpaceNK. Unfortunately, by then I was completely skint and long fully lusting after this seemingly perfect product. 

My amazing boyfriend paid over the RRP of £31 for it on eBay, (don't you hate when this happens) to surprise me at Christmas, knowing how my heart yearned for this to be on my face. Funnily enough, it was actually in stock on the SpaceNK website right up until Christmas, but we won't tell him this.

Isn't it beautiful?

The illuminator is a golden rose shade, packed with pearlescent shimmer, and its just what my make up box has always needed.

How do I describe it? 
Well, I love Nars Orgasm blush, but sometimes I'd like a little more shine and bronzing. I also love Mac's Belightful, but I don't always want to look like a glitter bomb has exploded on my face. 
Laura Mercier's Illuminator could be the love child of the two, and it is my new all time favourite highlighter. Its gorgeous alone (as worn in pictures) as well as mixed with blusher, and adds a glow unlike any I've ever known from any other highlighter.
