Laura Mercier Shimmer Bloc in 'Pink Shimmer' | Review & Swatches

Monday, 23 September 2013







Now that Autumn is finally on it's way I'm switching up my make up to include some more A/W appropriate pieces, gone are the corals and oranges which were so popular this Summer, it's now time to make way for beautiful berry colours and warm pinks. I thought that blusher was a good place to start. Over the Summer I loved my MAC 'Springsheen' blush as it was the perfect dewy coral but now that the weather is colder and the nights are darker, it's time for a change. 

This blusher has got to be one of my all time favourite blushers. I love pink blushers and find that these are most flattering if applied lightly onto my pale skin so this blog is perfect for me as it has just the right amount of pink to give me a warm flush of colour. Like some of the Benefit boxed blushers, this Laura Mercier number comes with four different colours which can be used separately or swirled together to create a warm nude pink blusher. I like to swirl the colours together and apply this to the apples of my cheeks, then apply the lightest colour on its own as a highlight on my cheek bones. 

Also, the quality of this blusher is outstanding. I have not tried many Laura Mercier products as they are a little pricey, but every product that I do try impresses me more than the last and this is no exception  With the finely milled shimmer this is such a smooth and creamy blush making it a dream to apply, and allowing you to add a bit of shimmer to your face without looking like your 5 years old again and playing with your 'glitter babes' make up. The subtle shimmer adds a warm highlight to your skin which can be emphasized on your cheek bones using the lighter colours. 

Overall, I haven't a bad word to say about this product and I will definitely be checking out some of the other colours - I have my eye on the Peach one next!
