Laura Mercier Cheek Mélange in Canyon Sunset

July 12, 2011

Laura Mercier Cheek Mélange in Canyon Sunset ($40) is “a cheek colour with sunset inspired hues perfect for adding warm glow to the face.” This is a new product for fall from Laura Mercier. It’s a beautiful embossed cheek powder that gives a beautiful luminous darkened pink. Canyon Sunset has three colors with a lovely overspray. From top to bottom: light powder pink, medium plum-brown-pink with silver sparkles, medium darker peachy pink. On me it goes on very warm-toned, not quite bronzer like, but with a heavy hand, it feels like a pink bronzer. The overspray disappears after a few swipes. The pigment is medium, soft, luminous and natural like Laura Mercier’s regular blushes. The shimmer is very soft and makes the skin glow.

Without flash in natural light, still with overspray on

I used a MAC duo fibre brush to apply for a soft sweep of color. Here’s what it looks like with the overspray removed. The powder underneath is still soft and luminous.

Swatched on arm, separately and then blended, on the arm it looks more pinkish, on my face it darkens slightly for a more browned peachy pink look (probably because of a heavier application on the face)

Overall love.

    Laura Mercier, the professional woman's go to makeup designer for looks that are modern, fashionable, and that translate from day to night effortlessly. This blusher beautifully captures the essence of canyon country as those of us who live in the southwestern part of the US can plainly see. For me, this would be a causual weekend look. It's moving to the top of my must see list. Thanks for the excellent pictures.

  • It's a shame the gold is just over spray, I would of liked it to go deeper into the blush, still looks like great colours though!
