Last week, we were invited to preview Laura Mercier’s fall collection, and while there were many items to covet come autumn, the standout product was their readily available, tried and true Mineral Illuminating Powder in Candlelight. Attention to all you girls getting ready for prom and/or wedding season: the loose powder has a soft shimmer that will catch the light at just the right moment to convince either your date, the person you’re trying to make jealous, or the hot dude in the bridal party that his attention belongs on you. Sure, covering your body in shimmer can sometimes make you look a bit like a...1980s hooker, but Laura has your back and she will make certain you're the furthest thing from Snooki come that special or—sorry to break it to you high schoolers—not-so-special evening. And even if you don’t have something special planned in the upcoming months, a little shimmer on the décolletage and collarbones never hurt anyone, right? Just grab a big ol’ powder brush and sweep around your bod (in moderation, please). It'll make you feel good.
