Laura Mercier Solar Drenched Tinted Moisturizer Blush ($28.00 for 0.5 oz.) is a wealthy, deeper coral-orange with robust, heat undertones and barely-there pearl that wasn’t actually seen in particular person. The feel was light-weight, fluid, and spreadable with a gel-like really feel, so watery and runny in a manner however had some glide to it.
The product utilized evenly to reveal pores and skin with fingertips or a brush, whereas it was pretty workable with fingertips on high of base merchandise, there have been a number of cases the place it appeared to shift my base merchandise ever-so-slightly so a brush was extra foolproof. It had semi-opaque shade protection, which was extra pigmentation than marketed (however will not be a foul factor for some!). It lasted nicely for 9 hours earlier than fading a bit.

The formulation is meant to have a “trace” of shade and provides “12 hours of weightless tinted hydration.” Whereas they’re billed as a blush, the model famous that they have been “security examined to be used on lips, cheeks, and eyelids.” The model advisable making use of with fingertips and that it could possibly be utilized in layers to construct up protection “the place wanted.”
It’s a formulation that begins of liquid and extra fluid however dries down and has extra of a ‘set’ end, which is healthier for longevity however implies that it’s best to use one cheek at a time and ensure to mix with out distractions! I did not really feel like I needed to rush to use in any respect, however I discovered that essentially the most foolproof solution to work with these was utilizing a fluffy, artificial brush swirled in product I had allotted on the again of my hand (you will not want a lot for a sheer layer).
I’d argue that this was a reasonably pigmented product, significantly with mid-tone and deeper hues as they appeared much less apt to sheer out in comparison with a number of the lighter colours I attempted. Because it was a liquid product, it was roughly pigmented relying on how a lot product one used, and it was fluid sufficient that it was arduous to get a constant quantity of product out in a “squeeze.” This was why I favored to place a bit on the again of my hand after which choose up product from there, because it ensured I did not choose up an excessive amount of product in a single go.
The product utilized evenly over naked pores and skin in addition to over basis, although I felt like once I tried utilizing my fingertips, it wasn’t fairly as dependable in outcomes when used over foundation–it often shifted base merchandise round. I’d advocate letting the product dry out barely (about 5 seconds) earlier than making use of over base merchandise if utilizing fingertips; this let the blush turn out to be rather less moist and appeared to reduce shifting.
