I love these highlighters. I have the shade Mosaic and it sits beautifully on the skin. I have dry/combo skin and this does not make me look oily at all. It's matte but looks dewy on the skin. During the week I use it for eye shadows, highlight, and contour . I want to get the bronze shade next. They are pricy, but the quality and longevity of the product are fantastic. I am in my 30's and have used LM products for over a decade. I use her spf daily face shield, oil free primer, ORIGINAL foundation powder in 3 and 1, and conceal with SC 2. This has been my base since I first started with makeup . I am not a fan of the crazy highlighters out today and prefer the old technology vs. the new. Hope this helps.

I loved this product, but the color blocks (4) somehow got lose and fell apart into each little triangle. I tried to put it back together, but it was too delicate and crumbled away in my hands leaving a HUGE mess that couldn't be salvaged. If you buy it, be sure to put it in a plastic bag as you do want want it falling apart in your purse. Take very delicate care of it too. I will be calling the company regarding this because it was only a week old and was never dropped or thrown around as it remained in my "at home" makeup bag.

          Comments about Shimmer Bloc:

          Have purchased this about 3xs so far,Love it&love the natural highlight look it gives you. Soo easy to apply. Except once you use up a certain color block the rest of the blocks start to fall apart. I usually use 2 of the colors more than the other 2 and every time it starts to run low, the whole block just crumbles up.Not sure why this happens but has happened every time I've purchase it. That's my only complaint which is really irritating cause it wouldn't last but a few weeks.

                Amazing Highlighter, illuminating product. So easy to use and a little goes a long way, so it lasts a long time. I just use it in the usual highlighting spots and it gives me a soft, natural looking "glowing from within" look. Always get compliments on my skin and my "natural looking glow" when I use this product--day or night. Use it over any Laura Mercier foundation or tinted moisturizer to just add that touch of healthy looking shimmer where you want it or need it. I suppose you could use it all over, but I don't personally do this. I usually use Peach Mosaic, but have tried the others too, and they all blend well into my light skin tone which has both pink and yellow tones. Very versatile product too, as you could use it on your eyes as a highlighting shadow as well. Don't ever discontinue this, please!

                  Comments about Shimmer Bloc:

                  This was my first experience with highlighting products. We're talking more than 15-20 years ago! I can't even remember how long ago this launched. But it's way back when before highlighting and strobing even existed outside stage work! And it is still one of the very best highlighting products out there! The peach mosaic is the original Jaclyn Hill version of the Becca shimmering skin perfectors. And it is even customisable so you can make lighter or darker versions depending on your skin tone and need. It is soo kind on fine lines and texture and gives the most beautiful dewy finish! Love Love Love!
                  I still use the one I bought way back when, but I have a spare that I bought a while ago in fear it might get discontinued. So it lasts forever unless you are a mua. It is still totally fresh too, (I never use dirty brushes in my products).
                  I see in the reviews that some have had problems with it breaking. I have always kept the little bubbly protecting plastic thingy that came with it that fills out the space between the product and the lid. Maybe that has helped protecting it. I would however not toss it into my makeup bag for touch ups, since it is a quad that is pressed together I assume it will be sensitive to bumps and being tossed around. But it is soo pretty on the skin, that even if it broke I would keep using it! I hope it will not fall into oblivion ever in this now overflowing market of highlighters, since this is still one of the absolute stars on the highlight sky!!

                  Here's how good this stuff is: I have a severely uneven skin tone plus acne and scars, and I can wear this over only moisturizer - no foundation! - and feel confident with the look. Unlike bronzers I've used in the past, it does not look fake or cakey, and more importantly does not make my sensitive skin break out. A little bit goes a long way - and it stays throughout the day even in hot temperatures. This is what I love about all of Laura Mercier's products: the quality is so good that you don't need to use layer after layer to get the desired effect - this saves you money & time in the long run! Highly recommended, and this is coming from someone who never writes reviews!

                  I bought this product twice, although I really like the colours palette it broke twice and I could not use it any longer.

                  This product it is way too expensive to waste your money like this.
                  Please follow my advice!!

                      A:

                      Andy, The best tip on selecting a shimmer bloc is to go by your skin's undertones. If you have a yellow or a warm undertone go for a shimmer bloc with neutral undertones like the Mosaic or the Golden shimmer bloc. If you have more of a pink or red undertone select the Pink or Peach mosaic shimmer blocs.

                    Q:

                    I have bought the product 3 times and every time it breaks up. I have tried everything to keep it together. I am very gentle with the case and try not to let it get banged around in my makeup bag. I love the colors, any advice on keeping it from breaking up.

                      I am sorry i cant tell you how to keep the product from breaking other than be very gentle with it because it is a pressed powder. When you purchase the item if it breaks you can exchange for another one.
