Spring has sprung…
Spring is finally here and with it, has followed fresh collections straight from SS13 Fashion Week. The ‘no make up’ trend has been massively popular, even seeing the ‘no mascara’ trend transcend into this coming Winter’s collections.
To fully embrace this, Laura Mercier have released a spring collection bursting with neutral hues and dewy barely there pinks, lending a luxurious and ‘on trend’ colour palette for this season. With the release of 14 new shades of Creme Smooth lip colours from their ‘Girly’ pink of their warm ‘Belize’ burnt orange, there really is a shade to suit every skin tone.
I love their highly pigmented formulas, rich with moisture. However, Laura Mercier packaging isn’t my favourite. I’m just being picky though, the products themselves really are heads and shoulders above other brands for their formulations and longevity, plus I’m a sucker for a satin finish! Sometimes its hard to find a satin finish lipstick without the consistency being too annoyingly sticky but these are perfect and well worth the investment. What’s more, they’re created with jojoba wax and pure olive oil to promote hydration and even application – isn’t this what all lipsticks should be like?
Laura Mercier’s Caviar eye sticks are loved throughout beauty circles and it’s no wonder. The formula is such that creases are considered a naughty word and non-existent. The colour ‘Rose Gold’ is the perfect base for my skin tone as its light and appears dewy, in keeping with this seasons trend of a moisture rich complexion. I’d say though, that if you were a darker, more olive-skinned complexion, ‘Grey Pearl’ would be perfect. However I found this too dark for me. All in all these are the perfect shadow base. They have a brilliant colour payoff, enough to be worn alone and are so easily blendable. The collection really does have a colour for everyone but it’s the pastels I’ll be snapping up!
