Better Together: Laura Mercier Metallic Crème Eye Colour in Burnished Copper, the Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette, and MAC Costa Riche Eye Kohl

Published in: Daily Beauty

My goodness, sweets. You HAVE to try this combo if you love copper, which I do, ’cause it brings out the richness in so many different eye colors! Brown, hazel, green, blue — especially blue.

I was chatting in the comments yesterday with long-time MBB reader Saffron (‘sup, S?) about one of my favorite copper eyeshadows, Laura Mercier’s Metallic Creme Eye Colour in Burnished Copper, which, of course, gave me an idea for my eye makeup today.

I took out the Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette (don’t forget to enter the giveaway if you haven’t already), figuring that the Burnished Copper would make a good base for the warm reddish browns and bronzes in the palette.

I also grabbed MAC Costa Riche Eye Kohl, a warm reddish brown liner I absolutely adore.

Gosh, I wish makeup playtime was a mandatory thing. Wouldn’t that be cool? It could be like recess for beauty lovers.

I think I’ve said this before… Maybe if I repeat myself it’ll come true, LOL!

Just think of all the great combos we could stumble upon by accident. :)

Where’ve You Verbena All My Life, Laura Mercier Verbena Infusion Gel Body Moisture?

Published in: Laura Mercier, Skin Care

It’s hard to let go of your fears…

Like, for me, the fear of smelling like a cleaning spray, or the clinical term, scentofcleaningspray-a-phobia.

It started innocently enough. One day long ago I was wearing a scent — can’t remember which one it was now — but it had strong notes of verbena.

Doop-da-doo, someone leaned in for a hug but pulled away immediately, as if repelled, and said, “You smell exactly like Pledge.”

It left scars, man.


Needless to say, I was a little skeptical at first about Laura Mercier’s new Verbena Infusion Gel Body Moisture, but I figured, it’s Laura, and I’ve pretty much loved all of her scented body products, so I banked on this one working out, too.

And it did! :) No eau de scrubbing bubbles.

“Inspired by the countryside of Provence, Laura captures the crisp freshness of Verbena to invigorate the senses. A sparkling bouquet of green citrus and leafy spearmint infuse beautifully with petals of fresh blossoms and a touch of white amber and cedar wood. Leaving behind a refreshing sensation that rejuvenates the body.”

With the mercury rising here in Northern Marin, I’ve been digging the creamy gel-like texture, which feels almost like a light mousse. It quickly absorbs into my skin and doesn’t leave the backs of my knees feeling sticky, which is a major moisturizer turnoff.

Published in: Daily Beauty

Teal and violet make for two tantalizing treats in Laura Mercier’s Teal and Violet Longwear Creme Eye Pencils ($24 each) from the New Attitude summer collection.

I like wearing these for a bright pop of color on my lash lines with neutral lids.

They’re both available now, along with the rest of the New Attitude collection, on Laura Mercier counters and online.

Try Laura Mercier Sheer Creme Colour in Golden Pink for a Sheer Veil of Shimmery Golden Pink

Laura Mercier Golden Pink Sheer Creme Colour

I like to wear Laura Mercier’s Sheer Creme Color in Golden Pink on the apples of my cheeks (applying it with a patting motion) when I rock bolder eye looks. It’s a creamy new limited edition face product that adds a sheer veil of shimmery golden pink color.

Words of warning (not a big deal, but just to save yourself some trouble): be careful not to go overboard with this, especially if you wear foundation. The first time I tried it on, I applied too much, and it ended up looking really patchy on my cheeks.

Golden Pink ($35) is part of the New Attitude collection, which you can find now at Laura Mercier counters and online.

Giving Lips an Attitude Adjustment With Flushed, Heartbreaker and Temptation: New Gel Lip Colours by Laura Mercier

Laura Mercier Gel Lip Colour in Heartbreaker


To quote the great Rachael Ray of 30-Minute Meals, “YUM-O.”

Whenever I get one of Laura Mercier’s Gel Lip Colours on my lips, my tummy rumbles because they taste so good! I’m tempted to bite into one like it’s a big butterscotch popsicle.

They taste and smell like butterscotch to me, also known as “one of the fine flavors of my youth.” Seriously, I used to walk to the corner store and get candy from those Brach’s Candy tubs, and I was all about the butterscotch, mah!
