Spring means everything is new again. This spring Laura Mercier introduces the Spring Renaissance Collection, hues that evoke a new beginning with the ideal blend of nude pinks, beiges and pastels. Colors are light and airy, soft and pretty. Nude shades of beige take over from winter’s dark shades of browns, rusts and olives. Pink and gold on the lips and cheeks dictate a delicate balance between the metallic shades on the eyes.
Foundation Primer-Radiance $33.00
Just like the infamous Laura Mercier Foundation Primer, Foundation Primer Radiance gives foundation a base on which to latch on and hold to all day long. With this foundation primer you get a boost of radiance that helps make the face and skin glow and look gorgeous. Skin looks luminous and perfect. Foundation Primer Radiance has a soft focus effect with a pearl tint that minimizes imperfections, leaving makeup looking fresh and letting the color looking true all day long without oxidizing. I purchased this because I love anything that makes my skin glow. I adore shimmer and shine. I guess I am like a magpie! This is even better than the regular Foundation Primer! It adds just enough shimmer to the face. You can even mix it with foundation to really add some glow to the skin.
The Enlightenment Palette $55.00
A new, limited edition palette. Includes four eye shadows in shimmering neutrals and two blushes in pops of color to create the perfect look for the season. (This is sold out online but still available in the stores).
Faux Lash Mascara $24.00
Builds rich, exaggerated lashes that are extraordinarily thick, super-shiny and conditioned; the formula is extra-smooth, glossy and good-for-lashes, created with a blend of waxes and absolutely no fibers. Comes in Black and a Limited Edition Shade of Sierra Brown
Eye Canvas $26.00
This oil-absorbing innovative formula acts like a foundation for your eye, neutralizing the eyelid by providing lightweight coverage – all while extending makeup wear and prevent creasing and smudging all day. Comes in 5 shades to match the eyelid.
Crème Eye Liner $22.00
An ultra-smooth, water-proof creamy eye liner that applies with the ease and smooth silky finish of a gel and the precision of a liquid liner There is a new Limited Edition shade of Graphite and it also comes in Espresso.
Angled Eye Liner Brush $20.00
Specifically designed to work with the Crème Eye Liner, brush uses high quality synthetic fibers in a narrow, exact point with a thin profile that creates the most precise looks
Metallic Crème Eye Colour $23.00
A lightweight, non-greasy, lush metallic formula that floats across the eye leaving a gorgeous, shimmering sheen
Two New, Limited Edition Shades are Golden Mist and Copper Sunrise. Also comes in Platinum and Alloy, permanent shades. I tried Copper Sunrise, a gorgeous metallic copper shade. Metallic Crème Eye Colour wears all day long without creasing. The shimmering color requires only a tiny bit of color to get the beautiful sheen.
Crème Cheek Colour $24.00
A long-lasting, natural cheek color formulated to provide translucent, buildable coverage for a soft, velvety finish Sunrise and Praline
Laura Mercier Rouge Nouveau Weightless Lip Colour is a 100% wax-free lip color that delivers pure, long-lasting breathable color and comforts with lip-nourishing hydration; now available in a unique Pearl finish for shimmering lips. Comes in Pure and Play. Pure is a beautiful shimmering gold that looks amazing on the lips and is now one of my favorite lip colors. I love how this shimmering metallic gold looks with the Metallic Crème Eye Colour.
Lip Pencil $22.00
A perfectly textured lip pencil designed to outline, define and enhance the natural shape of the lip. Line lips in Chestnut to go with the colors in the rest of the collection. I always line lips completely to give lipstick something to adhere to. This helps lipstick last a lot longer and gives lips a primer base.
Crème Smooth Lip Colour $26.00
Luxurious lipsticks that give lips the ultimate in color, texture, and finish. In one smoothing swipe, the crème formula envelops lips in rich color with a semi-lustrous finish. Palm Beach, a tangerine pink and Brigitte, a pink cream shade, coordinate well with the makeup shades in this collection. I was lucky enough to try out Palm Beach. This shade has a ton of pigment, goes on very smooth and lasts a long time. One of the best things about the Crème Smooth Lip Colour is that you get all of the pigment in one swipe of the lipstick. Comes in 35 shades.
