When I first saw Laura Mercier’s Bonne Mine palette – I knew that it had to be mine. Unfortunately, it was sold out everywhere, so I had to ask my friend to ship it to me from California (where she was able to find one).
The shades are: Bronze Glow, Peach Glow, Coral Glow and Pink Glow.
According to Laura Mercier, these should
There are not that many cream bronzers on the market, not that I am the biggest bronzer fan/user, but I do like myself a cream product plus a lot of the readers are!
So I am excited to tell you about the Sienna X Cream To Powder Bronzer And Illuminator which was launched relatively recently.
There are two cream products, bronzer and highlighter. So here are my thoughts about each.
It is much creamier than the highlighter and I really like the texture of it as it is so easy to blend it into the skin without it looking patchy or streaky, even on my dry skin. While it may look a bit orangey on fair and very light skin complexions, it looks amazing on more tanned/darker skin tones.
It works great for warming up the skin and, I assume, you could mix it with the foundation to get a sun kissed look, like with Chanel’s Bronze Universel. I’ve just realized that I never tried it that way, although I’ve had this product for a long time already, but will give it a go!

I am really loving these new, unfortunately limited edition, MAC Pro Sculpting Cream which are available in six shades.
I bet they are amazing, so it’s worth investing now. The price is £17.50/ $20.
And the shades are:

There are also two new bronzers from sienna X’s which look very promising. Both come in
You may remember that I have been looking for Laura Mercier’s Bonne Mine palette everywhere. I have got it a long time ago so I have no idea why I never wrote a proper review on it yet.

The main idea why I’ve wanted it so much was to to have all-in-one face product. It saves so much space!
I love the classic white design with Laura’s signature on top.
Here is how the colours inside look like. You get: 0.36 oz Bronzer Veil, 2 x 0.14 oz Cheek Veil and 2 x 0.14 oz Glow Veil.
You also get a detailed instructions on how to use everything and where is the best to use each product.
And what about the quality and my impression?
Have you ever been after a certain beauty product for a long time?
Today I want to show you the product that I’ve wanted to get myself for Christmas (I actually wanted to get this product ever since I saw the promo photo) but for some reason it was hard to find it. It was sold out in London, couldn’t find it in Manchester, wanted to get it from New York but it didn’t work. And I could go on really…
But finally I’ve managed to get it from California, can you imagine? My friend got it for me from Sephora for $48.
