Your girl did a lil’ hauling today at the Macy’s Union Square Laura Mercier counter. I picked up some cream shadows from the Dreamy Collection, along with a navy blue cake eyeliner and a flat eyeliner brush.
Here’s a pic of the haul sans camera flash:
I know I’ve moaned and groaned about my one bad incident with a Laura Mercier cream blush brush, but when Frank, a cool makeup artist at the Union Square counter, showed me how to use a flat eyeliner brush to apply Bleu Marine Eye Liner on my waterline (to make my eyes look bigger), I had a moment. I’ve got a good feeling about this brush. I sure hope it doesn’t break in half like the cream blush brush did.
Tip: Make time for retail therapy.
At the counter, I also got the scoop on products in the upcoming Gold Digger Collection (April). Expect to see:
Nail Lacquer: a high-shine formula, long-lasting and chip-resistant
Colour Pots: both cream and powder formulas within the same color family
Bronzer Duos: an innovative dual-shade bronzer
Lip Glace: lipgloss with a touch of shimmer
Double Ended All-over Powder/Creme Blush: to be partnered with Colour Pots
The specific colors are still a mystery, but I expect to see a lot of, um, gold. I’ll do some digging this week and will report what I find, fo’ sho! I’m totally stoked about this collection and can’t wait to see it, wheeeee!
Oh, and if you’ll be in the San Francisco Bay Area between April 3-5, the Laura Mercier counter at Macy’s Union Square is hosting a Gold Digger launch party. Call ahead to schedule a makeover with acclaimed Laura Mercier National Artist Ryan Thomas, whose work has been seen on the walkways of top designers like Bagley Mischka, Chanel and Oscar de La Renta. The number to call is (415) 296-4454.
I hope your weekend’s been great so far. What’ve you been up to? Did you haul, too?
