Laura Mercier Second Skin Cheek Colour In Spiced Cider.

This is officially my first blush purchase from Laura Mercier . Usually, I gravitate towards pink and peach blushes so this rusty brown is completely out of my comfort zone . I blame the Maybelline lipstick in refined russet for this purchase ( Swatch here :)).

Its the perfect match to the lipstick and it makes a gorgeous fall blush ! On my skin it looks like a peachy rust shade and adds just the right amount of warmth to my face . Spiced cider is finely milled and very pigmented . I found it easy to blend and it does not look patchy or powdery on the skin . It is important to mention here that  I do not pair this with a bronzer or a contour . Mainly because when placed correctly on the cheek bones it helps to create a very subtle contoured effect . I think adding a contour to the mix would just be over kill  .

The blush is the exact same size as the eye shadows and can be popped in to her custom palette as well . I think Laura Mercier makes very high quality items at an affordable price point . I definitely recommend checking this blush out if you like soft rust shades of blush.
