Laura Mercier Second Skin Cheek Colour, part 2

Laura Mercier, Second Skin, Cheek Colour, Cheek Color, blushYesterday we started looking at Laura Mercier’s Second Skin Cheek Colour. In March of this year, Laura reformulated — and repackaged — her blushes. The Second Skin blushes are longwearing, with light, natural, buildable color. They include “skin-silkening” vitamins and botanicals, as well as light-diffusing ingredients. These blush pans also fit into Laura’s $10 3-pan and 6-pan compacts (so you can make your own custom eye-and-cheek palette).

Second Skin Cheek Colours are $24 each — and if your favorite shade of Cheek Colour got discontinued, hurry over to, where they’re clearing out backstock at a huge discount (valid only while supplies last, of course). Right now, Blushing Apple and Crushed Hazelnut are $11 each.Laura Mercier, Second Skin, Cheek Colour, Cheek Color, blush, swatches, Rose Bloom, Wild Bouquet, Fresh Ginger, Spiced Cider, Orange BlossomRose Bloom is a matte pink. Wild Bouquet is a slightly peachy beige-pink. Fresh Ginger is sparkly beige-gold. Spiced Cider is red with a few gold sparkles. Orange Blossom is sparkly pink gold (every line seems to have a shade like this; Orgasm is just the most famous).

I’ve been browsing through my collection of blush swatches, trying to find comparable shades for these. The trouble is, even if I find a shade that I think looks similar in a swatch, I’m not sure if they’ll be similar in actual application. Laura Mercier blushes seem so refined — a little more discreet in their pigment than perhaps NARS or Rock & Republic. If you have the chance to cheek-test these, I definitely recommend it.
