Laura Mercier In Oleander Review

laura mercier in oleander

Laura Mercier In Oleander. When I was younger I never needed blush as there was always a natural flush to my skin. Now as life has progressed, I find myself reaching for a little bit of cheek colour to give me that added lift to my face. I find that on most days all I need is a little mascara and some blush and I’m good to go.

I’ve used a number of cheek colours over time and most recently I’ve been addicted to Nars’ Orgasm. Lately, however, it just hasn’t been doing the trick, so my sister and I hightailed it to our favourite makeup counter to see what we could find. With so many different formulations, it can get really confusing. I like a creme based blush because (all makeup artists please stop reading now, and don’t hold this against me) I like to apply it with my fingers. I’ve found that my fingers really give me the most control over the application and of course I make sure that my hands are clean.

After some searching and a lot of testing, I finally picked my new favourite blush from Laura Mercier in Oleander. It seems to be that perfect shade of spring pink. It’s light and natural and suitable for pretty much any skin tone. The texture is light and the application is translucent, which translates to build-able colour. Yes, in the box it looks like a very bright pink and I admit a little daunting. Once applied, however, it gave my face subtle pink flush,not unlike the healthy glow one gets from a fun workout.  For day all I need is a little swipe on the apples of my cheeks. I’m so happy to have found this perfect shade!

Do you wear blush everyday? Have you tried Laura Mercier in Oleander?

Cargo Cosmetics Eye Shadow: Review


  1. I always wear a bronzer, but like to add a little blush for a glow. Tarte Amazonian Clay blush lasts all day long! It’s so great!

  2. Hope Howland (@HHDesigns)

    I do wear blush every day and mine is more of a coral hue (Sephora brand).. and I also wear is with a luminizer…I like to get that glow…

  3. I don’t wear much blush, but this shade looks really pretty<3
    -B ♡ MsBerryStylish 

  4. I actually only started wearing blush regularly about four years ago…and I like to use my fingers too:)
    I’ve heard NARS’ orgasm works on all skin tone but I’ve been afraid to try it. I like the shade of pink you chose it look soft and subtle.

    xo, Jackie

  5. Blush and bronzer are daily used, tell you, I use my fingers occasionally for make-up application 😉

  6. I love the shade you’ve selected and the way you’ve shot it. I love a bit of blush, I wear it whenever I apply makeup and I’ve always been a fan of Fashion Fair’s shades.

    Stay Stylish, TL. Xx

    1. Thanks so much! I was really trying to present it in its best possible light!

  7. I can not live without blush. I feel like a zombie without it lol. My fave is Jane Iredale’s cotton candy blush.


  8. Such a beautiful shade!! Would love to see how it looks on you!

    1. Ahh! I promise I will post a pic of it on but it is so wonderfully subtle that it’s hard to show!

  9. I have to use a little bit of blush and bronzer every day. Just enough to contour my face after applying foundation 🙂

    1. Oh that sounds perfect! I have to get better at contouring, hmm maybe that will be my next project!

  10. Oh this looks beautiful! For a moment there, I thought I was looking at a Chanel. Definitely the perfect color for Spring – now you got me dreaming of the season. It’s below freezing point here and I just want to fly somewhere warmer haha. Hope you’re enjoying the winter though your end 🙂 xx Donah

    1. Oh winter hasn’t started yet so I’m still happily using this pink! It does look like an old Chanel blush I had, come to think of it, but I just love the creamy texture of this one!

  11. I really need to get more blushes! Maybe a bronzeer for summer!

    1. A great blush can be such a lifesaver!

  12. Really great review! I really like your way of writing ! will definetly come by a lot :))

    If you want we could follow each other and stay in touch? 🙂

    1. Thanks so much I really appreciate it. Will stop by your site!
