this is one of those pretties that needs little introduction as the beauty of laura mercier’s new blonzer / highlighter hybrid mostly speaks for itself. this palette of pearly rose gold shimmer is just what your cosmetic stash is calling for this holiday season and the goodness goes far beyond that gorgeous rose motif.
rose rendezvous is a silky powder that adds a pink champagne hue to cheeks, eyelids, brow bones, the cupid’s bow (a secret trick to define lips), or all over for a soft glow. this time of year sees no shortage of shimmer at the beauty counters, but we can always count on laura mercier to go glam in a way that won’t scream at you – or make you look like a disco ball. this powder won me over with its super smooth application, complete lack of glitter and buildability – a light application gives a natural blush to skin, but you can add intensity depending on your preference. the finished look is very much ‘lit from within’ and perfect for all of those parties creeping onto the calendar.
rose rendezvous is $42 and a limited edition release for the holidays, but if you’re lucky enough to snag it, i think it will find a happy home among your other products for seasons to come.
