Laura Mercier’s  Kohl Eye Pencils are favourites of a lot of people and I can totally see why.

I have five (mini) pencils and would like to show them to you today.

The colours that I have are:  Black Violet, Brown Copper, Stormy Grey, Stone Slate and Black  Gold. And here is how they looks like.

These have a very soft and creamy texture and glide on easily, without dragging the skin.  They have a fantastic pay off and gorgeous colours. Yes, the colours are definitely fantastic, all five of them! I imagine that blue and green shades are to die for, as well!

I would suggest kohl pencils for a quick smoky eye, you could use them on their own or with the eye shadows on top, looks great either way.

I am a huge fan of cream eye shadows and had these for almost a year already, so I have no idea why I never wrote about them.

But it’s better late than never, so today I want to tell you about Laura Mercier’s Metallic Crème Eye Colour (£ 18.50/$22).

I actually have three shades but, since one (Malachite) was a limited edition shade, will show you only two. I’ve got them in a set, so  originally these eye shadows are bigger than those that I have.

Platinum – shimmering champagne, Rose Gold – shimmery rose gold

Light frost eye shadows are a big NO for me, so I was a bit worried about these shades. But Laura Mercier knows how to do a nice  light metallic shade without it looking too frosted and glittery. It is shimmery, yes, but it is very wearable and, I could even say  - subtle.

The formula is really nice, non-greasy, lightweight and, most importantly, you can get a sheer or full-on effect. I actually love applying these eye shadows with my fingers as such method allows to get a very thin layer which does not sit on top of skin but blends it beautifully.

I love using Platinum and

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.

I though it was a limited edition palette… But it is actually available at Sephora, where I’ve got it from, for $48.

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.

I am sure that a lot of you tried or at least heard about the  amazing tinted moisturizer by Laura Mercier. And I have to say that it’s a great product but today I would like to tell you about the Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer, SPF 20. And it is a moisturizer with subtle shimmering colour.

This is what it written about it:

“Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Illuminating is a lightweight, buildable sheer foundation formula that delivers a youthful, radiant finish.The skin-friendly formula contains a unique Dewy Complex that is proven to keep the skin moisturized and better equipped to combat external aggressors and irritants. Layer with other foundations for a custom blend and radiant finish”

Here are just some of my thoughts about this product and you can decide for yourself if you need this or not:

  • As all TM this product gives a pretty sheer coverage so be sure that you use a concealer if you have any problems.
  • This product is perfect for hot summer weather because it’s not to heavy.
  • If you have  quite a few imperfections on your skin I would not recommend you using it because
