Which makeup palette or gift set sold out fastest at the Sephora Holiday 2016 Event? The Laura Mercier Fall In Love Face Illuminator Collection! Yup, not the Too Faced the Chocolate Shop, not the Tarte Pretty Paintbox, the Laura Mercier Fall In Love Face Illuminator Collection was the item that everyone grabbed up quick as you please.
I must be delusional about the popularity of highlighters! I always think highlighters are such an Instagram thing but I don’t actually see anyone walking around with perfectly contoured and strobbed faces around Manhattan. Or maybe I’m just not hanging around the right places.
If you asked me what would sell out the quickest during Sephora’s Holiday Preview Event I would have quickly rattled off some of the larger palettes from Too Faced and Tarte. Nope, those stuck around a bit but when the doors opened at 8:30 at my store everyone quickly navigated over to the Laura Mercier display and grabbed up her new highlighting palette. I didn’t have a chance to look at it. Granted, there were a lot of people in the store and only a few of the palettes available but really? Who would think this would be the item everyone wanted the most!
As I was checking out a rep from the brand had a table set up right by the registers and she handed me a sample of primer and lipstick and asked if I saw the new highlighting palette. I told her no, I hadn’t. She explained that Kim K’s glow was thanks to Laura Mercier Face Illuminator Powder and how big a fan Kim was of the powder. I glanced at it and mentioned how pretty it was and too bad it was sold out! She quickly snapped it closed, placed it back in the box, and said, “Here, want this one?” And I somehow, someway didn’t refuse because I had to see for myself what all the excitement was about.
Mind you, I’ve told myself I won’t buy anymore pretty highlighters because I tend to stare at them and never use them. But my curiosity got the better of me after everyone quickly purchased this one.
It contains Face Illuminator Powder in the following shades:
- Addiction (gilded gold highlight)
- Devotion (cool highlight)
- Seduction (soft bronze highlight)
- Indescretion (warm rose gold highlight)
I’m going to test it out shortly and see what all the fuss is about.
Did you grab it?
