Review: Laura Mercier Shimmer Bloc in Pink Tourmaline.

Laura Mercier Pink Tourmaline Mosaic Shimmer Bloc – £31 *

My main love in life is cheek products, I wear a highlighter daily to give me a subtle glow and it really makes my skin and overall makeup look so flawless.
I’ve recently been adoring this Laura Mercier number, a mosaic shimmer bloc made up of subtle pinks which give my cheeks an amazing highlight.

I’m a big fan of Laura Mercier products, I find the quality amazing and they’re always such a dream to apply. This Shimmer Bloc is no exception and it’s the highlighter I’ve been reaching for constantly lately. You only need a small amount to give a glowing, healthy finish to skin. I usually apply with a stippling brush along my cheek bones. I find this doesn’t give much colour, despite it being a pink shade, so I use it with a blusher too, applying the Shimmer Block first and then the blusher.

I’m thinking about getting this in another shade, perhaps something a bit more peachy.
What do you think of Laura Mercier products?

  • That colour is so gorgeous on you!

  • i have to agree. Laura Mercier products are a “dream to apply”. i love how most brands, they are an expert of something aka maybelline with their mascara or mac with their pigments. Laura Mercier… expert at everything!

  • your cheeks look so glowy with that product on xxx

  • This looks gorgeous! In the photo are you wearing a blush with it because it’s such a pretty glowing pink? Ooh a peachy one sounds nice! I love peach blush 🙂 x

  • Lovely one. Looks like Benefit’s Sugarbomb but in a pink version 🙂

  • What a lovely blush it gives such a pretty flush xx

  • Amy

    Oh, this looks lovely! A bit out of my league price-wise, but the colours look great!

  • Hev

    Such a lovely colour, it really suits you 🙂 x

  • It looks lovely, it definitely does give you a healthy glow! x

  • I love shimmer blocs and bricks! I always try to wear shimmery blushers and highlighters instead of matte colours on my cheeks because I think it does make your skin glow and look more healthy! Also it’s a great way to perk up your makeup if you’re not a big fan of dark eyes or statement lips. You look gorgeous in your photo 🙂 xxxx

  • you look stunning! I love your hair – it really looks “Serena-like” 🙂

  • Your cheeks look lovely with this product. I have to say, I barely wear blusher, and don’t own any other cheek products, but I have no idea why! I just don’t know where to start x

  • Oh gosh, this really does look amazing! I love laura mercer – Got one of their illuminators and its so beautiful even if I have ruined the rose print just by using it 😉

  • Laura Mercier just KNOWS what quality is…That hilight looks amazing on your skin! I just bought her secret camoflage concealer and I can’t go on enough about how amazing it is.

  • This looks like a really nice product. I’ve heard great things about Laura Mercier and am really interested in trying out her tinted moisturiser too x

  • You look beautiful! The blush looks gorgeous 🙂 xx

  • i love laura mercier products. really into their metallic creme shadows for the summer!

  • looks lovely and flawless!

  • It’s so subtle but looks amazing xo

  • This looks beautiful but for that price I think I will have to pass haha:)

  • I have to agree. Laura Mercier in my opinion is one of the higher end makeup that I know will always live up to expectations. Yes its expensive but the clue is in the quality so I can’t complain about the price. I love these shimmer blocks as they give a lovely subtle colour and highlight at the same time. Especially if like me you often forget highlighter. This looks gorgeous on your skintone too.
