Loving Laura Mercier

I first discovered Laura Mercier's 'Silk Creme Foundation' last year and have loved it ever since - I think this is about my fifth tube!  When I recently visited the Laura Mercier counter to repurchase 'Silk Creme', I took part in a promotion that allowed me to buy two products and pick a third for free.  I chose the Shimmer Bloc in 'Mosaic' and Lip Glace in 'Ambre Rose'.

'Silk Creme' provides amazing coverage, has a natural, luminous finish and lasts all day.   It photographs beautifully, especially under flash photography which makes it my go to foundation for nights out. You can read my more in depth review of 'Silk Creme' here

I absolutely love highlighting powders; some of my favourites include Dior's 'Amber Diamond', Smashbox Soft Lights in 'Shimmer' and M.A.C's Mineralize Skin Finish in 'Soft and Gentle'. However, Laura Mercier 'Mosaic' may have pushed its way straight to the top.  The shimmer bloc is comprised of four shades that can either be used individually as eye or cheek products or swirled together to add radiance to the face.

The compact comprises of four shades: a bronze, a gold, a taupe and a champagne which, when used together, gives the appearance of a golden peach.  I've used 'Mosaic' as my highlighting product every day since I've bought it and can't believe how pretty it is.  When using 'Mosaic' on the cheek, it's important to use quite a light hand to avoid it looking too shimmery.  When used with a fluffy brush, the finish is a really pretty, natural sheen which you can see below.  I've also used the champagne shade in the inner corner of my eye.

'Ambre Rose' Lip Glace is a very pretty, rosey bronze lip gloss, perfect for everyday wear.  I love the Laura Mercier Lip Glace formula as it doesn't move around on the lips and avoids any sticky or gloopiness.    'Ambre Rose' is quite an opaque gloss as you can see below.  While it does contain a gold glitter, this is fine enough to prevent any grittiness and helps keep the lips looking glossy and shiny.

What are your favourite Laura Mercier products?

  1. I love the foundation on you. Also, your eye color and hair are amazing!

  2. Oh my goodness, that's an amazing deal! I want to try a sample of Silk Creme again now....I tried a sample years ago but the color match was so off that I really couldn't give it a fair chance. You look beautiful, Nic! <3

    1. That's the one downfall of Silk Creme - the shade range is extremely limited! Thank you so much :) xx

  3. So stunning! The highlighting powder looks incredibly beautiful <3
