Right so you know I jabber on about Laura Mercier all the time? Well prepare yourself for another unapologetically raving post as I’ve found another product that I’m in love with and I need to share!
Part of their new ‘Portfolio Collection’, the Second Skin Cheek Colour in Peach Whisper instantly caught my eye when I saw it on Laura’s blog. The next day I trekked down to my local Space NK and in an instant it was mine. No panic ladies as this is a permanent edition to their Second Skin line but if you’re a fan of peachy cheeks like myself, then this is definitely one to have a swatch of! I think I may be slightly in love with the Laura Mercier Second Skin Cheek Colour line, a range of subtle, naturally enhancing shades that offer a fool-proof flush of colour to the cheeks in a long-lasting formula. Whereas my first Second Skin purchase Lush Nectarine had a slight golden shimmer to it, Peach Whisper is completely matte but bucks the usual chalky formulas and instead blends beautifully into the skin and offers a natural glow to the cheeks. In terms of colour this is a straight up peach, no pinky undertones here, and it pairs up perfectly with whatever bronzer I’m wearing. I’m not sure it has toppled Lush Nectarine off the top spot but it’s very, very close.
I find both colours I own to be extremely pigmented, 3 light taps into the product with my Real Techniques Multi-Task Brush is all I need to get a nice amount of colour to my cheeks, which for me justifies the £20 price tag. In terms of higher end blushers, I much prefer the Laura Mercier line to the other NARS ones I have tried – although NARS Madly has a special place in my heart. Have any of you tried the Laura Mericer Second Skin Blushes? Any colours I need to own?
P.S) In recent days I have also become rather Aesop obsessed, does anyone have any recommendations? Let me know!
