Laura Mercier Second Skin Cheek Colour - Lush Nectarine and Peach Whisper
The Laura Mercier Second Skin Cheek Colour blushers have quickly become a favourite of mine this year. There was once a time I thought MAC had the best blushers and I went a little crazy wanting to own every single one. My makeup collection has always been minimalistic, even though I am obsessed with beauty I've never been one to splurge on products I really don't need. I can see myself just sticking to these blushers, they have such a lovely range of colours that all seem to be neutral shades. I own Peach Whisper and Lush Nectarine.
The first one I picked up was Lush Nectarine, this was after Vivianna's rave. I just could not resist! Its a lovely peach with a slight hint of pink and shimmer running through it. After loving this one so much I wanted to get one that would replace my love for MAC's Melba, so I picked up Peach Whisper whilst shopping with Laura in London. It is beautiful! She soon after also picked it up, you can read her review here. It was a part of their Summer 2012 collection I believe, but has made it into their permanent line. It's a lot softer and more peach than Melba, it adds a lovely warmth to your complexion. I always opt for peach blushers, I find they suit me a lot more then pure pinks. I like to apply these with either the Real Technique Blush Brush or the Real Techniques Stippling brush.
These blushers will set you back around £20.00. Pretty expensive for a blush considering you don't get a lot of product, almost half of what you would get from a MAC blusher. But in my eyes, totally worth it! They are soft, pigmented, blend like a dream and are extremely long lasting. I'm someone that loves their blush, I like it to be noticeable and find myself not needing to top up at the end of the day. I would love to to try some more, I have my eye on Orange Blossom and Fresh Ginger next!
Have you tried these blushers? Can you recommend me any shades?
