Laura Mercier Polished Radiant Creme Blush

Laura Mercier Polished Collection:  Radiant Creme Colour — Cream Highlighter

Laura Mercier Polished Radiant Creme Colour ($35.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a gorgeous cream highlighter that goes on champagne-pink. Even though it looks like there are three separate shades, it’s hard to just get one, and so I’d say it’s really designed to be used swirled together. I really love the way all of the shades come together and create something that’s subtle and incredibly illuminating. It’s soft, lightweight, and it wears well. I didn’t find it faded or migrated during the eight hour test I put it to!

I wore it a few days ago in this look, and it really does make cheekbones pop! I applied the cream highlighter by tapping a stippling brush and lightly swirling and blending out towards my temples.   I will caution you if you’re going to be photographed a ton–go lightly and be sure to dust and set with a translucent powder.  It’s a beautiful sheen, but in flash photography, it can come off a little oily if you don’t use it subtly.

    I have to admit that this didn’t really catch my eye. But I do hope that if you received the Zen pallette, you’ll share your thoughts on it.

  2. This looks so pretty! The only things I ever buy from Laura Mercier are the tinted moisturizers and concealers, but this is now on my list!

    I’ve been trying to decide whether I need this or not since I don’t usually use creamy highlighters (don’t really own many come to think of it), but it does look very pretty. I guess it’s sold out now anyway, so probably won’t get it now, which kinda solves my dilemma, lol.

    I’m always looking for highlighters to make my cheekbones stand out. It is hard for me to use blush because I always tend to break-out soon after. I’ve been afraid to use creme for it looking too streaky. But, this color looks really nice.

    I’ve been trying to use highlighters more, but find it can look a little shiny and too glitzy for day time. Do you think this would look OK on African American skin? Thanks!

    The champagne shade is gorgeous and the gold will make an excellent eyeshadow too.

    so pretty! i’m becoming increasingly interested in laura mercier products. the only product i bought was a lip gloss years ago when i first started getting interested in makeup during high school. it was a multi-colored halographic lipgloss i believe. i don’t think they make them anymore.

    Christine, can you please review Laura Mercier Shimmer bloc(Golden mosaic). I am new to makeup and I bought it to use it as a bronzer+highlighter.
