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.
