Peach

Laura Mercier Peach Blush Colour Infusion ($30.00 for 0.20 oz.) is a medium pink-coral with golden shimmer and a pearl finish. It had semi-sheer, buildable pigmentation (up to opaque coverage with three layers) that applied fairly evenly and blended out without too much effort. The consistency was smooth to the touch but firmer and thinner, which made it less ideal to work with, as it had a tendency to absorb natural oils on my skin (making it harder to blend out/appear patchy). It lasted for eight hours on me before fading noticeably.

Formula Overview

$30.00/0.20 oz. - $150.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have "sheer, buildable" coverage that "blends seamlessly with skin" that lasts for "10 hours." I purchased two shades--one shimmer, one matte--to see how they performed before considering purchasing more of the range. The texture of both shades was rather thin with a firmer consistency that wasn't as blendable as I would have expected, though it had the sheer coverage that was described. It was buildable from sheer to mostly opaque coverage, though the shimmer shade I tried was easier to build up. They lasted around eight hours on me, which was solid wear, but it was shy of the 10-hour claim.

Chai

Laura Mercier Chai Blush Colour Infusion ($30.00 for 0.20 oz.) is a medium, rosy mauve with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had sheer, buildable coverage–up to semi-opaque with three layers–with a thin, stiffer texture that was harder to pick up evenly with a brush and more challenging to apply and diffuse on my skin as the color didn’t spread or diffuse well. I found that it darkened noticeably after application, which can be an issue with thinner, matte powders. This shade stayed on well for eight hours on me before I noticed fading.

Quintessence (440)

Chanel Quintessence (440) Joues Contraste Blush ($45.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a medium pink with warmer undertones and a mostly matte finish. There was faint pearl I could see more in the pan than I could see in the swatch, and I didn’t notice any of it on my cheeks! It had medium, buildable pigmentation–and the brand markets their blushes as buildable–with a very finely-milled powder that was slightly powdery in the pan. It applied evenly and diffused well without having to work at it. The finish was definitely matte on my skin, and it did not seem to darken over time (which is an issue with some matte powders). On me, it wore well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

Hot Escape

NARS Hot Escape Endless Summer Eye & Cheek Palette ($49.00 for 0.42 oz.) contains four neutral-hued eyeshadows, shimmery peach highlighter, and mid-tone pink blush. Given how many neutral eyeshadows exist on the market at any given time, the palette left me unimpressed with the quality of the eyeshadows. The cheek products were decent, but they didn’t make up for the eyeshadows.

Fall 2018

Hourglass Fall 2018 Ambient Lighting Blush Palette ($65.00 for 0.33 oz.) contains three, warm-toned blushes–peach, coral, and mauve–that have a subtle, natural-to-luminous finish. The marbling effect found in the formula can result in variation in color between versions, but all three seemed to have more of the lighter portions that ended up in lighter colors compared to the permanent versions I’ve reviewed in the past. I’m curious if readers who picked one up have noticed theirs are lighter as well. Other than the color difference, the quality was the same–soft, smooth, blendable, and easy to work with. FYI, there’s about $76.00 worth of Ambient Lighting Blush in the palette.

Glowing, Pretty

Charlotte Tilbury Glowing, Pretty Skin Palette ($75.00 for 0.54 oz.) includes five cheek colors and one setting powder (Medium). While I can understand the inclusion of a finishing powder… I don’t understand it so much in a release where there’s just one palette to choose from, since the finishing powder is flesh-toned and not translucent. In larger cheek palettes, there are often shades that may or may not work for a single skin tone, but everything about this palette seemed geared toward fair to light skin tones. I did not find that the powders felt as smooth or as finely-milled as the brand’s standalone blushes , bronzers/contours, and highlighters.
