Laura Mercier Sheer Creme Colour in Golden Pink*

Laura Mercier Sheer Cheek colour golden pink cream 2014 summer collection shimmer

I used to have a Laura Mercier Sheer Crème Colour years ago and I really liked it but I lost it!

Golden Pink* is part of the 2014 Summer Collection. Like the name suggests the formula is sheer but I like that because it means it’s pretty fool proof and you don’t end up with too much colour. I would describe it as a cool toned pink with a golden shimmer. The shimmer means you could this as both a blusher and a highlighter. The shade reminds me of Benefit’s Sugarbomb but that’s a powder formula. I think this shade is perfect with pale skin because it looks like a very subtle, pretty flush of colour.

In terms of longevity I managed to get seven hours of wear before it started to fade. The formula is very easy to blend, it doesn’t set and become impossible to sheer out. It’s a true cream blusher, it doesn’t turn to a powder but it’s not a really wet formula like NYX cream blushes.

Have you tried this blusher? What do you think? Do you want to try it?

Pastels are my favourite shades of nail polish and this year pastels have been everywhere, last year was the neon year but this year is the pastel year. Blue Orchid* is a beautiful bright cream baby blue, it’s brighter than a lot of the pastels around just now. Deborah Lippmann polishes are quite expensive at £16 but the quality is fantastic, they paint really easily without any streaks or brush marks, which can be a problem with pastels. I think this is a really pretty shade for summer but if you want it, grab it now because it’s limited edition, it’s part of the Spring Reveries Collection.
