LORAC Perfectly Lit Oil-Free Luminizing Powder Renders All Other Highlighters Irrelevant

It's not often that I rave about a product like this. I have a deep, somewhat unhealthily obsessive, love for highlighters. I love the lit-from-within, I-swallowed-a-lightbulb glow. I think, if I were to diagnose my make-up psychology further, that I have a mild form of separation anxiety when it comes to highlighters. There's that much love (I'm lucky highlighters can't file some kind of police report or restraining order). So now, to claim that LORAC's Perfectly Lit Oil-Free Luminizing Powder makes every other highlighter of mine obsolete is might sound like delusion but mostly truth.

The Perfectly Lit Oil-Free Luminizing Powder comes in a round compact, the size of my press powders, and you get a very generous amount for the price. Since I'm an nc45, I use the shade Radiant, which is a golden brown with a touch of champagne. It looks like a face powder in the pan and doesn't look exceptional until you put it on. I use a Smashbox fax brush to lightly dust the powder over the top of my cheekbones, browbone, bridge of my nose, and cupid's bow. And the result beats every other highlighter I've ever tried, without a single ashy or artificial tone to it.

There's nothing artificial or even remotely powdery about the finish. The effect is not just as if it's a gentle candle-lit glow on your face, but it also looks like someone was magically able to photoshop the candlelight to perfection to flatter you even more. It makes my blush, bronzer, or bare face look impeccable.

The applicator it comes with, a round sponge, is completely useless and I really recommend using a fan brush to pick up and deposit just the right amount. There are no harsh shimmer particles and there's no over the top shimmer, just the perfect incandescent, youthful glow that has made all my other highlighters fall off my radar. Truly, if you could get one highlighter, skip the rest and get this one.

Can you please compare the LORAC highlighter to NARS albatross? I'm debating on which one to buy and I value your opinion. Thanks!
