Beauty Test Drive: Laura Mercier Bonne Mine Stick Face Color

Beauty Test Drive: Laura Mercier Bonne Mine Stick Face Color

I know the idea of $32 blush must make some people scream. How could anyone possibly spend that much money on makeup? But I have a ringing endorsement here: Laura Mercier’s new Bonne Mine Stick Face Color stays put all day long. It doesn’t sweat off in July’s sweltering humidity, it doesn’t get eaten up by my skin — and it comes off with a wipe at nighttime just like it’s supposed to do.

Dreams Of Amber And Vanilla

Better Beauty Rules
Kate proposes some better beauty rules to follow. Read More »

As a collector (read: hoarder) of perfumes and body lotions, I will say that my very favorites are made by Laura Mercier. I was depressed when they discontinued the Vanille Gourmande body lotion last year. I still hold out hope that they will start making it again. It was the most heavenly smell in the world. For now, I’ll have to slather myself  in Laura Mercier’s latest lotion creation, Ambre Vanille Souffle Body Creme.  With notes of amber, vanilla bean, sandalwood, tiger orchid, almond and coconut, the exotic,feminine scent will leave my nose equally as satisfied and my skin ultra-moisturized. And the best thing about Laura Mercier lotions is that they retain their scent all day and through the night. I swear, you’ll smell it on your sheets in the morning. It’s a dream.

Beauty Test Drive: Laura Mercier Under Eye “Secret” Concealer

I don’t drink coffee and I barely sleep, meaning that the dark circles under my eyes are the stuff of legend. I’d almost gotten to a point where I considered them accessories and was planning to give up on hiding their intensity. Blessedly, a kind soul at Sephora wouldn’t let it happen. She introduced me to Laura Mercier’s “Secret Concealer,” which has had the unexpected effect of making me look significantly less like a zombie. I am, admittedly, exaggerating the dark eye situation, but not the greatness of this concealer. Apply it with a touch of oil free moisturizer and your finger if you’re in a rush. But if you’ve got a second, pick up a brush like this and use it instead, as there’s a noticeable different in the level of coverage. [$22, Laura Mercier, Sephora] Keep reading »
