Hello Santa! I've been good all year! :D
Laura Mercier is releasing it's latest collection this November called Art Deco and it's what you want your Christmas stockings to be stuffed with this holiday season. Believe you me!
It's the same love story between me and Laura Mercier every year (as you can see in this post).
Each year, I hoard as many Laura products as I can and I am left perfectly happy with my purchases until she comes out with a new collection which somehow tops what I already thought was perfect. I mean, who can do that?
And this year, the Art Deco collection has me going cray-cray once again.
I'm sure you will too when I share with you a little tip that Laura Mercier's top resident make up artist, Jeffrey Tasker shared with us during the launch at Prive...he says that...shhh...I feel like keeping you hanging for a little longer just because ;)
For now, let's talk about this lot of lip pencils that look like a coloring pencil set since they have about every imaginable lip color covered here...
|Laura Mercier Lip Pencils - SRP P995|
These lip pencils are firm enough to draw a precise line yet soft enough to blend. The creamy formula glides on smoothly and comfortably. It prevents your lipstick from feathering, bleeding or collecting in corners. Each pencil also comes with its very own sharpener which is great since I always end up botching mine up.
Next up the newest addition to their successful bath and body line called Ambre Vanille.
I still have some pistachio and creme brulee left from last year since the pots are huge and you only need to use a very little amount to moisturize cause it glides on very easily.
I tell you, these are fantastic. The scent lasts with you all day. No need for perfume! And they are non-greasy, perfect for the humid weather Manila is best known for. A must try especially if you like having baby-smooth skin, who doesnt?

And then we have what I would like to call my own personal essentials... mascara, eyeliner and lip lacquer. Three things I can't live without on a daily basis (plus LM tinted moisturizer of course!)
Must I go on and on about these? If you've been following my blog for quite some time, you probably have read several of my many Laura posts and each time I always have to emphasize how idiot-proof Laura's products are. Anyone and I mean anyone, even a newbie, will be able to apply party worthy make-up using LM and these 3 are no exception.
First off, the mascara is SMUDGE-FREE! That's enough reason for me but add to that the fact that it doesnt contain those irritating little fibers that always get caught in your eye but still manage to make your lashes look like falsies??? It's just plain amazing and more...will post a review soon, promise!!!
The graphic eyeliner is also another win. One glide and you're done. It's opaque and it's perfect. It does not fade, it lasts all day and it's water and tear rseistant. Really, what more could you ask for???
And of course, like a cherry to a sundae, a look isn't complete without sexy, luscious lips and these lip lacquers will do the job. Love the colors! And they hydrate as well as provide the perfect pout! Long wearing too, lasting from 4-6 hours.

Okay, back to the secret I was supposed to share with you earlier...
The holidays have your social calenders packed with parties and other gatherings where we like to eat, kiss and drink. All these three actions eventually translate into one word...retouch.
Keeping this in mind, Laura Mercier created these lipsticks that sort of regenerate its color just by rubbing your lips together. The pigments are recharged by your every rub!!! Science-fiction/fact make up? It's true though, it really works, saw it on Jeffrey Tasker myself! (yes, the guy is a hoot and enjoys applying bright lipstick once in awhile:)
|Creme Smooth Lip Color - P1250|
And I saved the best for last. This deserves a drumroll everybody...our favorite Tinted Moisturizer just got better with the arrival of...The Tinted Moisturizer Compact!!! GAHHH!!!
It's your tinted moisturizer on steroids!
You can apply it over make-up! This is going to be every girl's best friend by 2013.
It has the power to make you look refreshed while still maintaing that natural, dewy finish that all of us Laura Mercier fans adore.
I'm telling you, if I stay online and on this post any longer than I already have, I will just keep on gushing and gushing until I bore you to death.
