I’ve always loved Laura Mercier products (I’ve used their tinted moisturizer ever since I can remember!) so I was SO excited to try a few of their newest products from their new Candleglow Collection! This might sound cliche but these products really give my skin the prettiest, softest glow; almost like an airbrushed look! We had family photos a couple weeks ago and after trying out these products I knew I wanted to use them when getting ready for these photos. I’ve tried a lot of foundations over the years, but this one has quickly become my new favorite! This highlighter and concealer gives me amazing coverage (I really love the unique applicator too because it lets you pat and blend into your skin perfectly! It lightens shadows and tones down dark spots) and it’s ideal for ALL skin types. And this Sheer Perfecting Powder leaves my face with this gorgeous, warm candlelit glow and what I love most about it is it doesn’t feel or look cakey! (Nothing is worse than feeling like you have an inch of makeup caked on your skin all day, right?!).

If you already love Laura Mercier products (like me!) then you have to try out these new products! And if you do, be sure to let me know how you like them!! Have a great weekend!

xo, Rach

In September of 2011 I created Pink Peonies as a place to document the things I loved. Since then, it has become a creative outlet where I share my personal style though daily outfits, beauty tips, home style and much more!

Ever since I was a little girl I've dreamed of creating my own line. After countless hours of working towards that dream, I've finally launched my first collection!

It's full of classic, feminine and romantic pieces that you'll keep in your closet for years to come and wear over and over again!
