Laura Mercier's all geared up for the holidays!
Laura Mercier once again brings us her Holiday Collection, an extensive line ranging from makeup, tools, bath and body care, and home.
The culminating collection for 2012 is comprised of some of the brand's well- loved limited edition makeup sets, palettes, body souffles and scrubs, plus brand new limited edition Eau de Gourmand fragrances, hand cremes, and the Votive Candle collection.
Just recently, we had a firsthand experience of the brand's finest and newest products. They're so mighty fine, especially the bath and body collection. I didn't know they smell so good! The collection is so nice that I was tempted to rush to a Laura Mercier counter right after the event. Unfortunately and fortunately, I left my debit card at home. LOL!
Check out what Laura Mercier has in store for you this holiday season:
The delicious Souffle Body Creme Sampler and La Petite Patisserie Quartet sets.
Limited Edition Tarte Au Citron Body and Bath Duo, Hand Cremes, and Bath and Body Trios.
The fall collections Creme Smooth Lip Colour and Art Deco Muse were also available in the event for us to try. By the way, both collections are still available in all Laura Mercier counters. Personally, I like the Creme Smooth Lip Colour collection because it's pigment- saturated and moisturizing at the same time making it the perfect lipstick for the cold and dry weather during Christmas time. Add to that, the colors scream HOLIDAYS! :D

The Holiday Makeup sets: Mini Lip Glace, Petit Baked Eye Colour Trios, Smokey Effect Mini Eye Kohl, and Glamour Wardrobe Dual Decker for Eyes, Cheeks, and Lips.
This is the new The Flawless Face Book (P2,650.00), a palette featuring four of Laura Mercier's best- selling complexion products namely Tinted Moisturizer Compact, Mineral Pressed Powder, Secret Concealer, and Secret Camouflage. It also has the travel- sized version of the exclusive Secret Concealer brush. Luckily for us, this one is permanent. :)
Laura Mercier's resident makeup artist in the Philippines, Kwa, also did a very entertaining demo of Laura Mercier's signature holiday look. My oh my, this guy is so funny! (and nice too!) :D
The Look: Laura's signature look is all about smooth and transparent skin with a hint of warmth and glow. The eyes were highlighted in subtle shimmer mixed with soft matte shadows, while the lips were drenched in a bold, statement shade. The canvas is left almost bare, but with a dewy look and feel.
With my fellow beauty bloggers Shen, Mikki, and Bec.
This time with Kwa.
The kind and lovely people of Rustan's and Laura Mercier Philippines.
