Erno Laszlo Multi-Phase Blush And Bronzer

I've been a fan of Erno Laszlo skin care products for a while now (seriously, the pHormula No. 3-9 has been a life saver in several skin freakouts), so their expansion into makeup is a very welcome step. They've taken the one color fits all approach, which I don't always get, but since both the blush and the bronzer work so well on my skin, you will hear no complaints.

The picture above is a closeup on the blush. Both products are of the mosaic variety, which lets you see exactly which pigments are used. The blush has quite a bit of rose and plum in it, which looks natural and healthy. It's probably not for the coral lovers, but if you belong in my camp, the Erno Laszlo blush is worth trying. The powder is very finely milled and blends perfectly with anything else I have on. It stays on all day or night, but I haven't tested it on bare face- only over a foundation or a tinted moisturizer and always with a little powder to set things in place.

The bronzer is just as great and has become my favorite, especially for daytime since it's very low in shimmer. Photos online are making it appear more yellow than it actually is (and I've gotten similar results when I tried taking my own, but my camera sucks so no surprises there). It's comprised of six different colors, raging from sandy beige to terracotta. The blended result is exactly the right amount of sun kissed glow. I don't use much because I'm quite pale these days, but while testing I discovered the color is buildable, so if you've been fake tanning, it would still work nicely. If you have a very fair complexion you must test in regular daylight (department stores lighting is evil). I'm not sure how it would work on a cool toned porcelain skin- it might be a bit too much.

Erno Laszlo Multi Phase blush and bronzer ($38 each) are available from Bergdorf, Neiman, Nordstrom and I got both as a PR freebie.
