Laura Mercier Face Illuminator Spellbound ($42) is a beautiful golden highlighter which is part of the Dark Spell collection. As far as application, it has a beautiful pearl finish that can be subtle or built up. It is not at all glittery, but it is not so subtle as to be unnoticeable. I like to apply it in a "C" shape around my eyes. The sales person also told me that it works great applied in a "3" around the sides of the face for an all-over type glow. I picked up one of the last two at my Nordstrom, this one is going quickly!
I couldn't stop taking pictures of the beautiful surface of this, it was almost too nice to touch. At $42 though, this is going to be used often!
