My fellow travelers on the Laura Mercier Silk Road (isn’t that collection smokin’ hot?), care to pull over to the side for a sec? I can’t resist the sparkle from LM’s newest lines much longer!
Fresh out of the oven, the two new lines arrive just in time to add some shimmer to lips and eyes this spring. Eyes will glisten wearing the sparkling shades in Laura’s new line of Baked Eye Colours, while lips will shine showcasing the new Gel Lip Colours ($22 each).
Baked Eye Colours ($22 each)
Are these tardy to the baked eyeshadow party or just fashionably late? Department store lines have been doing the baked thing for years, but I think there’s still some good stuff here. I’ve been wearing Lagoon, a bright teal, both wet and dry. It exhibits a minor amount of fallout, but it’s not bad at all when worn with a sticky base like MAC Cream Colour Base in Pearl.
Added pluses: they’re easy to blend and feel lightweight on my lids. The $22 kinda hurts, but if you like baked shadows in wearable colors, consider one of these six work-friendly shades.
MAKEUP AND BEAUTY BLOG RATING: B+
Gel Lip Colours (also $22 each)
Smooove describes this new limited edition line of six lippies. Their slick, high-shine gel formula is packed with pigment. The color I tried, a brick red called sweet cherry, has a strong vanilla scent and taste that hits me right away. It reminds me of animal crackers (weird, I know). Unfortunately, it doesn’t last long at all — only about an hour — but, MAN! It’s crazy moisturizing.
