There’s Something Big Hidden Among These Laura Mercier Sephora Exclusive Holiday Sets

Published in: Kits and Sets, Laura Mercier

Can you spot the belly bump hidden in the picture above of Laura Mercier Holiday sets at Sephora?

The Blush & Glow Radiant Face Trio ($58), Daring By Day Eye & Cheek Colour Palette ($48) and the Daring By Night Eye & Cheek Colour Palette ($48) are Sephora exclusives, by the way.

Of these, I’m leaning toward the $48 Daring By Day Eye & Cheek Colour Palette. I like the mix of neutrals, and I REALLY like that pretty purple plum shade…ya know, for variété.

Doesn’t Laura Mercier make beautiful palettes? The colors they choose to put together just always make sense to me, and the formulas are top notch. They use a little more color than Bobbi, but they don’t go over the top.

Laura Mercier Master Class Colour Essentials Holiday 2015 Eye and Cheek Palette

Published in: Laura Mercier, Palettes, Product Reviews

The new 20-piece Laura Mercier Master Class Colour Essentials Collection eye and cheek palette ($125) looks a little like a day planner from 1998, or like a chic clutch you might take to an event where all the ladies are wearing dangerously high heels and carrying ridiculously tiny purses.

Still cute though, I think, especially with the brown and gold tortoiseshell-like trim.

The limited edition holiday 2015 palette comes with 12 powder eyeshadows, three blushes, two powder liners (for tightlining), a black eye kohl and two brushes, and it’s about two degrees of separation from Laura Mercier herself, because she handpicked all of the products.

I mean, it’s not like hanging out with her over tea and scones (I wish!), but it’s almost like having her do your makeup.

Almost.

LOL!

With such a wide variety of colors, finishes and formulas, the palette is packed with creative possibilities for endless looks ranging from day to night to nude to smoky.

For a Shot of Shimmer, Try These Laura Mercier Fairy Dust Eye Shimmers

Published in: Eyes, Laura Mercier

The new Laura Mercier Fairy Dust Eye Shimmers, $28 each

The new Laura Mercier Fairy Dust Eye Shimmers (five shades, $28 dollars each)

Yes, I’m picturing an invisible factory staffed by thousands of flittering fairies who crush precious gems with tiny magic hammers.

This, because of the new $28 Fairy Dust Eye Shimmers by Laura Mercier.

I’m also thinking, “Ooh, shimmer!” :)

As it turns out, these loose eyeshadows are more shimmery than glittery — like powdered pearls — so if you want bigger bits of bling, steer your tush toward Urban Decay, or somewhere else with mounds of glitter.

To use these, there’s a flat, wide brush attached to the bottom of the twist-off cap. Just swipe the brush, which should already be loaded with pigment, directly on your lids.

You can wear them on their own, blended with other shadows, or use ’em as like a sparkly topcoat, by layering them on top of an already finished eye look.

The Laura Mercier Paint Wash Liquid Lip Colours, $28 each

Um…but of course I couldn’t leave Sephora last night without grabbing at least some swatches. You know me all too well. :)

As I was making my usual rounds at the store down the street (I always start in the left corner by the front door and then meander counter-clockwise), Laura Mercier’s Painted Wash Liquid Lip Colours ($28 each) stopped me in my ASPCA Vans.

Bonjour, Laura! J’adore bright lipsticks.

A Warning to All Crazy Cat Ladies Considering the New Laura Mercier Luxe Travel Brush Collection…

Published in: Kits and Sets, Laura Mercier, Product Reviews

Laura Mercier Luxe Travel Brush Collection Review

gateway-catTake heed, crazy cat ladies. Rubbing the brushes in Laura Mercier’s $125 Luxe Travel Brush Collection across your face may induce irresistible urges to adopt additional cats.

WARNING: If you have already acquired a “gateway cat,” exercise extreme caution, especially around the Cheek Colour Brush, because it feels exactly like the softest, plushest, most downy delicious belly meat.

Makeup lovers have reported that it made them contemplate kitty crime. “I’m considering kidnapping an adorable tortie girl who lives down the street,” said one woman, “even though I know better…” :(

Gate-way cat
noun
Among members of the crazy cat lady community, the third cat is commonly referred to as “the gateway cat,” since it opens the door to adopting even more cats and posits the question, at this point, why stop at just three?

Laura Mercier Luxe Travel Brush Collection (2)

All eight of the brushes in this set feel kitten soft, from the fluffy Pony Tail Brush (fabulous for erasing hard edges, applying highlighter to those upper cheekbones, or for blending under-eye concealer), to the Angled Eye Liner Brush (great for thin lines and flicks, and it also doubles as a spot applicator for concealer). The set also comes with a travel case and a removable mesh cosmetic bag insert.

The $125 Laura Mercier Luxe Travel Brush Collection includes…

  • Cheek Color Brush
  • Secret Camouflage Brush
  • Pony Tail Brush
  • Creme Eye Colour Brush
  • Eye Crease Brush
  • Smudge Brush
  • Flat Eye Liner Brush
  • Angled Eye Liner Brush
  • Travel Case with removable mesh cosmetic bag
