My Spring Cheeky Glow: Laura Mercier Custom Artist Portfolio Sheer Crème Color (Pink Cheek Veil)
One of my new favorites is Laura Mercier Custom Artist Portfolio Sheer Crème Color (in Pink Cheek Veil). Yes, that's a mouthful of a product name! I was introduced to the product at the Neiman Marcus Beauty Week and I immediately purchased.
Sheer Crème Color is a limited edition item featured with Laura's Custom Artist Portfolio — a luxury planner that includes refillable custom compacts to house your favorites. Sheer Crème Color (Pink Cheek Veil shade) is one of the products that you can pop into the compacts, or you can easily use it on its own like I'm doing without the portfolio.
Sheer Crème Color (Pink Cheek Veil) is a creme-style blush in a light warm pinky, peach hue. I have neutral coloring and it's very natural on my cheeks; however, it does lean towards the warmer side. I've been applying light downward strokes of color using a foundation brush. I find that this technique provides the most natural and even look compared to using with my fingers alone.
On its own, Pink Cheek Veil wears fairly well — at least 6 or 7 hours. It's comparable to Bobbi Brown's Pot Rouge. But for all-day wear, I like to top with a bit of Laura's Second Skin Cheek Colour in Orange Blossom. Perfecto!
Purchase info: Sheer Crème Color (Pink Cheek Veil) is a limited-edition item available at Laura Mercier counters and online. It retails for $22.00.
