Foundations -Laura Mercier - Candleglow Sheer Perfecting Powder

Can't believe no one is raving about this powder.. I went to Sephora to get my regular Hourglass Powder in Dim Light, when the salesgirl asked me what type of foundation I normally wear under the Hourglass. I told her I never wear full coverage foundations, and wear light/luminous types.. She suggested this Laura Mercier powder, instead of the Hourglass, and said it will do the same thing, but also add a little more added coverage, without feeling OR looking like I was wearing anything full coverage, just perfected.. I'm so glad I trusted her! When I use this over my MAC Water Weight, MAC Face and Body, or Becca Aqua Luminous, I just look glowy and flawless, which at 47 yo I will gladly take! If you love Hourglass luminous powders, you will love this even more! Im NW25 and I purchased CandleGlow2, and it's the perfect color for my skin tone. I still went back and purchased my Dim Light, but I use each for different reasons, and the Laura Mercier provides a glow from within, AND a little extra coverage for nighttime looks. Definitely recommend.. It's also about $9 cheaper than the Hourglass, check it out at Sephora! 😊

Loose Powders -Laura Mercier - Translucent Loose Powder

on 10/18/2017 10:28:00 PM

Pros: Blurs out uneven skin texture nicely. Mattes and sets foundation.

Cons: Does not hold oil at bay for long. Despite putting this on, my foundations would still get oily 3 or 4 hours in. After my skin gets oily all the initial blurring/matte effect this powder had are all gone.

(Also I can never bake with this powder without feeling extremely guilty because of how expensive this product is lol)

Overall: Initial application is absolutely beautiful but considering that it doesn't last long, I don't find that this powder is worth the high price.

Tinted Moisturizer -Laura Mercier - Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20

I just don't see the point of this. It would really only look nice on someone who has very minor skin imperfections and has normal skin-type.

it gave very sheer coverage which is to be expected I suppose, as a tinted moisturier. But also the finish was just not great. It looked very oily on initial application and even though my skin isn't particularly oily, I became a greaseball in a matter of 2 hours.


Eye Shadow -Laura Mercier - Mode to Modern Caviar Stick Eye Colour Collection

on 10/15/2017 11:47:00 AM

This set of 4 smaller Caviar Sticks sells for $50 Canadian but offers (according to Sephora's site) $90 of value so the price for this selection is pretty good. The 4 sticks are all pretty neutral in colour, with Amethyst being the darkest shade in the set. There are 2 shimmers (Amethyst and Rose Gold) and 2 mattes (Vanilla Kiss and Natural Matte). I do like these a lot because they work really well as bases/enhancers for other shadows and they last all day, in addition to being nice "one and done" products for a simple/natural looking eye. I do wish there was a bit more variety in the colours in this set, as Vanilla Kiss and Natural Matte are almost identical. Nevertheless, these are nice to have and I appreciate the smaller size since I'm more likely to finish these before they start to dry out and become difficult to use. They won't replace my Lise Watier shadow sticks but they are very nice to have and the value makes them even more desirable.


Concealers -Laura Mercier - Secret Camouflage

Laura Mercier is a brand that I continue to trust when it comes to base products that I know will perform well. Since I have used the Secret Camouflage (SC) it has become a holy grail product and staple in my makeup bag. I use this for spot concealing my pigmentation on the sides of my face and also in the small part that is darkest closest to the corner of my eye and my nose. My shade is NC25-30 and SC3 is perfect for me, I tend to use both sides equally.

The formula is amazing. It has a dry consistency but not in a bad way at all. It can be warmed up with a brush or fingertips to give full coverage concealing. I use it this way on my pigmentation from acne scarring and it blends out perfectly and covers imperfections. Once on it last all day with a light amount of powder on top. Another way I like to wear SC is to sheer it out with a drop of Glossier Skin Tint. I just pop a drop in the concealer pan and mix it to create a creamier texture for either lighter makeup or under my eyes.

My application tip is to use a dual ended brush that you often get in palettes from Urban Decay or Anastasia Beverly Hills. Generally they have a small pointed side that is meant for packing shadow and a fluffier side for blending shadow. However (I use an ABH brush that came with the Modern Renaissance palette) the brushes in these higher end palettes are perfect, as you can use the pointed/flat side for placing and pinpointing the concealer, and then the fluffy side to buff it out seamlessly. And generally most women have these lying around, and they are handy to use in this way.

I find the packaging to be nice. It is nice and simple and sturdy and is consistent with Laura Mercier branding. There isn't any bells and whistles, but it isn't flimsy and the mirror is great for a small compact. It is the perfect size to put in your bag for touch ups. The price is high, but for what you get I do believe it is worth the higher price tag. I also don't think there is much that it can be compared to in terms of other brands. I know Mac have a concealer palette but the formulas are quite different from each other. I think that if you are looking for a concealer for pinpointing and covering imperfections then this is definitely one that you should think about. An oldie but a goodie, and a product that is still a stable in lots of womens handbag and makeup artists kits!
