Laura Mercier Chai Blush Colour InfusionLaura 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.
FURTHER READING: Formula Overview, which is a detailed review of the range as a whole.
Blush Colour Infusion is a sheer, buildable, and silky-smooth cheek color that blends seamlessly with skin for the most natural, fresh look. Pure color pigments feel weightless and apply evenly to skin for a healthy-looking flush of color that lasts for up to 10 hours. Infused with micro-fine powders, this next-generation formula can build from a diffused, sheer hint of color to a bold color statement. It’s designed to layer as flawlessly with liquid or powder makeup as it does on bare skin. Shades range from soft neutrals to vivid pops of color, with finishes ranging from matte to a subtle sheen with hidden pearl, to suit a variety of skin tones and skin types.
