There's a reason why the Lisa Frank aesthetic has followed many of us into adulthood: Holographic and rainbow-inspired things are just timeless. Laura Mercier is the next brand to reinforce that notion with an incredible new palette. But when will the Laura Mercier Lightstruck Prismatic Glow Palette be available? You won't have to wait long to get this galactic makeup kit into your hands.
While everything about this kit is pure magic, let's first take a moment to appreciate the case it comes in. Silvery and holographic with rainbow swirls cutting across the palette's front, it rings back to the mermaid-style binders and pencil cases we had in second grade. That enough would make you want to buy the kit, but luckily for us, what's inside it is even more amazing than what it comes in.
Once you open the palette you find five different cream highlighters that will change the game with how you strobe and highlight your face. The formulas were created in such a way that keeps science in mind. "Within the palette you'll find five multi-dimensional crème highlighters, all based off of the way light reflects on different objects," Allure explained. Each one is aptly named, further bringing out the galactic, magical mood of the product.
Laura Mercier's Lightstruck Prismatic Glow Palette, $52, Sephora
Aurora looks like a soft pink blush, Reflect looks like a bronzer, Prism is a gold highlighter, Beam is a silver formula, and Ray is a soft nude. At first glance it looks like you have separate colors that will help you put on a full face — you can use the pink as a blush, or you can alternate between the gold Prism highlighter or the silver Beam one as the mood fits — but really, you're supposed to layer all the colors on top of each other for some stellar results.
So when can you play with the shades yourself? You'll be able to look your dewiest come spring, seeing how the kit launches March 2017, for 52 dollars exclusively at Sephora. It might feel like it costs a pretty penny, but it will provide the type of other-worldly shimmer that will make it well worth it.
