Laura Mercier Spring 2014
First, let me just confess that I am totally obsessed with makeup and learning new techniques. Sephora TV is THE best and has helped me achieve looks I had failed again and again. Yes, behind the stacks and stacks of books, there's a makeup geek here, too, and I'm so happy I can write about these pleasures in addition to my love of reading. So here goes...
The latest kits in Laura Mercier's spring 2014 line are must-haves.
The Enlightenment Eye & Cheek Palatte - I love a good neutral palette. This particular kit not only delivers some truly beautiful and long-lasting shadows, it also gives you two new blush colors. If you're the kind of person who likes to pack light, this kit is it. You can wear each shadow alone, or add the darker shades to compliment a smoky eye (just throw in a chubby eyeliner stick). The blush pigments might not rival NARS, but they're certainly pretty and gave me a nice flushed cheek. My only complaint with the blush is that it doesn't stay as long as the shadow.
Perfection Lip Trio in Matte Red: I love a red lip (especially a matte lip), but hate when I constantly have to worry about it wearing off. This trio is AMAZING. The pencil and lipstick can be worn together for a perfect matte finish. The gloss is great to add a juicy pop, but can also be worn alone. I recently wore this out with a group of girlfriends to dinner and didn't have to reapply!
What spring collections are you eyeing at the moment? Have you tried these?
