Laura Mercier Corsica Tinted Moisturizer Blush ($28.00 for 0.5 oz.) is a barely muted, medium-dark coral-orange with fantastic gold and pink pearl all through. It had sufficient shimmer to be barely seen in particular person, which translated to a extra luminous end because it wasn’t overly shimmery.
It had medium to semi-opaque, buildable protection, and I’d say it was more durable to get actually sheer outcomes with out utilizing a really small quantity and/or wiping off some on the again of 1’s hand (off the comb). The feel was light-weight, spreadable, and blendable, whereas being fluid and backed by a components that dried right down to a extra transfer-resistant end after about 20 seconds. It lasted nicely for 9 hours earlier than fading visibly.

The components 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 really helpful making use of with fingertips and that it may very well be utilized in layers to construct up protection “the place wanted.”
It’s a components 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 option to work with these was utilizing a fluffy, artificial brush swirled in product I had disbursed 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, notably with mid-tone and deeper hues as they appeared much less apt to sheer out in comparison with a few of the lighter colours I attempted. Because it was a liquid product, it was kind of 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 decide up product from there, because it ensured I did not decide 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 after 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 suggest letting the product dry out barely (about 5 seconds) earlier than making use of over base merchandise if utilizing fingertips; this let the blush change into rather less moist and appeared to attenuate shifting.
