Happy December! If you’re about to begin your Holiday shopping or are still looking for gifts for your loved ones. I have compiled a selection of products in a Holiday Gift Guide for Her 2019. It could be just the right fit for those on your list. If not, they just might spark some gift ideas of your own!
I recently tried out Laura Mercier’s Sun Kissed Veil Bronzer. Which was a part of Laura Mercier’s Summer launch of their Mediterranean Escape Collection.
Mediterranean Escape Collection was a limited collection and although I’m sharing my thoughts at the end of the season. This is one I couldn’t resist sharing. Plus, it’s still available online and Laura Mercier has a similar product available as well.
The official description says, ‘Go glamorously off the grid with tones and textures inspired by a bohemian meets jetsetter vibe.’ They weren’t kidding. The packaging is mesmerizing and one that will surely instill the urge to travel in you!
I tried out Laura Mercier’s Sun Kissed Veil Bronzer in the shade Riviera Sun.
The Sun-Kissed Veil Bronzer, is a multi purpose product. One that can be used on the eyelids, cheeks, body and applied even to your lips! To create the illusion of a pumper pout! Having gone to the Dominican Republic last month, I wish I had this product with me then!
It has a lightweight balm consistency that provides a beautiful subtle glow. The colour is more warm and apparent on lighter complexions and much more natural appearing on deeper tones. Granted how stunning the sheen is, it can be used year round for achieving the look of glowing skin.
I find applying it with your fingertips is best as it warms up the product. Allowing for a seamless application. This product does not transfer on to any garments.
Described as a lightweight, oil-free foundation. It promises to provide a flawless, full coverage finish.
The consistency of the Flawless Fusion Foundation is best described as ‘liquid silk’. That is in all honesty! I wasn’t expecting the opacity and pigmentation that it provided, given its runny, lightweight feel. The Flawless Fusion Foundation dries down to a semi-matte finish.
One point I wish I knew when I was selecting my shade, was that this foundation oxidizes. So, my perfect match would have actually been 1-2 shades lighter than 4W1.
It wears for well over 14 hours and is one of those products that continues to look better with each hour of wear. I did experience some creasing along my nose at the 8 hour mark. However, the coverage remained intact!
For the warmer months, I opt for more ‘breathable’ foundations. However, I don’t like to compromise the coverage in doing that. This truly provides the best of both worlds!
Excited to bring to you, my first Laura Mercier Holiday 2018 Collection!
Laura Mercier’s Holiday 2018 collection consists of a wide variety of products, including palettes, luxurious creams, makeup brushes, lipsticks and more! Here are my thoughts on each of the pieces I got the chance to try out.
