Laura Mercier has a new amazing blush formula called Laura Mercier Blush Colour Infusion which I have been testing for some time now. The new cheek color is weightless and sheer yet buildable.
Blush Colour Infusion is described as a sheer, buildable and silky-smooth cheek color that blends seamlessly with the skin for the most natural, fresh look. Pure color pigments feel weightless and apply evenly to the skin for a healthy-looking flush of color that lasts 10 hours. The formula infused with micro-fine powders, this next-generation formula can build from a diffused, sheer hint of color to a bold color statement.
It layers nicely with liquid or powder makeup as it does on bare skin. The shades range from soft neutrals to vivid pops of color, with finishes ranging from matte to a subtle sheen with hidden pearl, to suit a variety of skin tones and skin types.
Matte Shades: Rosé (matte rose pink), Chai (matte dirty rose), Ginger (matte pale nude), Strawberry(matte bright pink), Kir Royale (matte berry wine)
Sheen Shades: Sangria (sheer plum berry), Pomegranate (sheer fuschia pink), Fresco (sheer brown nude), Peach (sheer light coral), Grapefruit (sheer red coral)

To celebrate the end-of-year season, Guerlain has created the fairy universe to discover an enchanted collection, where every detail is a wink to the House symbols. Also, this year Guerlain celebrates its 190 Anniversary, so we can call this an anniversary collection as well. Guerlain is one of the houses I always look forward to when it comes to the limited edition collections or the new launches. Despite the fact that I have all my staples sorted from the brand which I never want to be without but still I just can not keep my excitement and love for the new products and collections contained to myself. You might have already got the glimpse of the products in my Instagram posts, finally sharing the details and my thought here. I have two products from Guerlain Holiday 2018 Collection to share in this post, Guerlain Météorites Electric Pearl and Guerlain Limited Edition Electric Look palette, both of which are worth checking out if you are a makeup lover and if you are a collector like me, these are must-have. A collection which is elegant as well as sophisticated in the true nature of luxury.
Guerlain Météorites Electric Pearl
Les Météorites has been redesigned for Guerlain’s 190th anniversary into a new Limited Edition palette of colors that add radiance and warmth to all the complexions. All nestled in a golden anniversary case for the festive season. The golden tin looks beautiful for this time of the year and so is the iconic pearls inside, giving the warmth and glow to the skin.
The pearls have a delicate violet fragrance that’s addictive and inimitable. Born of expert craftsmanship, the Meteorites hold the secret to Stardust Technology. Diamond powder encapsulated in microspheres that create a brilliant blurring halo.
Météorites Electric Pearl comprises 4 iridescent pearls that harmoniously blend to create a pure, corrective halo of radiance tailored to your complexion. A subtle harmony of gold and copper pearls counter a dull complexion while champagne and white pearls reflect the light and illuminate the face with a halo of endless radiance. This extra-soft powder smooths the complexion to create a soft feeling.
The product is smooth and weightless, blends into the skin like a second skin, giving the most beautiful radiance and effect of youthfulness. I do adore the original Meteorites and have them in my makeup routine for years now and as with the limited edition collections of Meteorites, my collection is growing.
To use Guerlain Météorites Electric Pearl, Using the special Météorites brush, designed to capture just the right amount of powder, evenly apply Météorites Electric Pearl to the entire face, to set your make-up and improve its hold.
For boosted radiance, highlight the curved areas of the face: draw a G from the middle of the forehead to the top of the cheekbones and from the bridge of the nose to the tip of the chin.
Guerlain Limited Edition Electric Look palette
Guerlain has created a festive Limited Edition Electric Look palette featuring a harmony of 10 shades ranging from matte to metallic to be mixed and matched on eyes and cheeks. The “Wet & Dry” shades enable you to create an array of stunning looks by playing with the color intensities and reflections. The 8 eyeshadows and the 2 highlighters will electrify your festive look.
The palette has an elegant slim black compact packaging. It also comes with a full-sized mirror on the inner lid as well as 3 small brushes that are perfect to use for on-the-go. The eyeshadows range in texture from matte, satin and shimmery, while the two highlighters can suit a broad range of complexions and can even be mixed together to create an entirely new shade.
The formula is pigmented, blends effortlessly. All the shades work well to create sophisticated as well as glamoured looks this. The staying power of the formula is nice as is the look. To use, apply the eyeshadows alone or layered, dry for a natural finish or wet for a shimmery effect.
