I looked at this and thought it was really bright but decided to try it anyways. I am so glad I did get it. It is very pretty, during the day you can wear it sheer and more subdued, but at night I wear mine pretty bright. I have dark brown eyes and it makes them pop. Very pretty for spring and summer, as I do have a tan right now and it looks nice with it.
I bought this because of all the reviews on here. I do not like it at all. I think I am currently too tanned to use this, and it makes me look pale, not glowy. I will probably be able to use this more in the winter, but for spring/summer, it just is not good for me.
Lip Treatments -C.O. Bigelow - My Favorite Lip Balm

As the name states, this is my favorite lip balm ever and I have tried them all. This is really smooth, almost slick, but that is better to me than stickiness. It is not flavored or scented and it makes my lips so smooth that the natural lines I have on my lips are almost gone. I have been using this for 5 days and I am a believer. I will never be without this, EVER.

I am so sad they discontinued this product. I love it so much, and I have a little bit left in a bottle but I never use it because I don't want to run out for some odd reason. It is very fruity and tropicaly, but it smells so good. Guys always complimented me when I wore this.

I wanted so badly to love this, but seeing as it breaks me out, I cannot love it! It is kind of expensive too, but the color match on me was excellent, I was Nude by the way! I am so sad that this breaks me out cause it did cover pretty well and made my skin glow!
Lip Gloss -Bourjois - Effet 3-D Glossy Lipstick Rose Emblematic

I love this lip gloss so much I would marry it if possible! It is the best pink on me. Not too bright, and not too peachy. It is great when I use it in the middle of my bottom lip to give the illusion of fullness! I wear it alone or over lipstick. It is not sticky and most of all it does not dry my lips out! LOVE IT!
I really like this lipliner, but instead of it being a mauvey color on me, it is a very brownish orange pink, if there is such a shade. I like it okay with certain lip sticks, but a lot of the time, it is too warm on me. I use it with the Laura Mercier lipsticks the MA used on me with this particular liner. I do not find myself reaching for it all the time though.
I bought this solely as a base for my eye shadows because even though my lids are not oily, eye shadow fades on me within hours. I love this stuff. My eye shadows stay on so much longer, and this adds a little sheen to any look. I do not like this as a cream to powder shadow, and use it only underneath a powder shadow. No creasing with this stuff either.
I really like this eyeshadow for the smokey eye look. I use this along with deep night, and it almost turns out a little on the dark gray green side when used together. I love the shimmer in this eyeshadow, and find that it brings out the honey in my dark brown eyes. I like this, but am also a little ill that no applicator comes with LM eyeshadows. I hope to never have to repurchase this since I use eyeshadow sparingly and have so many different colors.
Eye Shadow -Laura Mercier - Eye Colour in Deep Night

I got this after a LM MA used it on me. I like it, it is really pigmented and intense, but it is great for my dark brown eyes. It is a very deep navy blue, with no sparkle, or sheen. I find it a little hard to blend, but if I go over it with another shadow it looks very blended and smooth. This would be wonderful as an eye liner, but I just use it as a crease color for now. I rarely use my eyeshadows up so I doubt I will ever have to repurchase this. Also, it didn't come with an applicator, which kind of irritates me.
Eyeliner -Laura Mercier - Black Violet kohl pencil

I love love love this eye liner. It is gorgeous with my brown eyes. I tend to go towards purples for my eyes so this fits right in with the usual eye shadows I use. The MA that used this on me used it with deep night and pewter from the LM shadows, and it looked smashing. I have since tried to recopy the look and it looked way different but still good. I think this is such a great eyeliner, that it would go with anything. Not too purple, and not all black, just a great in between color.
Primer/ Corrector -Laura Mercier - Foundation Primer
QueenB2784 1/4/2006 6:07:00 PM
I got this as a gwp for buying way too much LM stuff. I like it, but I cannot tell that my makeup stays on longer. It does make my makeup appear to go on smoother. I do not mind the scent, it is clean smelling. I like it and it has not broken me out that I can tell. I am not sure if I would buy it becuase it is so expensive, but I do enjoy it. I may try a cheaper primer to see if I can get the same results but for less cash.
I have been using this for two days, twice a day and can honestly tell a big difference. The SA that sold me this gave me an entire LM makeover and suggested this for the dark circles under my eyes. After two days I can see a HUGE difference with my dark circles being almost gone. The cream is very creamy so it is easy to "pat in," but it is not so creamy that my makeup slides off. I would recommend it. Thirty bucks is a little much, but it only takes a small bit so it should last forever.
I was given a paper slip with this scent sprayed on it and left the store without buying the perfume. The next day I had to go back and buy it because I could not get the scent off my mind. I love it. It is light, but smells so wonderful. It is citrusy, but feminine. I will definitely make this a part of my fragrance collection from now on.
I am using the volumizing formula in the shampoo and I love it. I don't find that it strips my hair and the smell is WONDERFUL! I will buy this again just for the fact that it smells so good.
