SS16 Foundations: Chanel, Dior and Laura Mercier

Besides the lipsticks, the other makeup product almost every brand is bringing out for SS16 is  foundation. And while cushions and foundations with the dropper  (BECCA, Stila, Kiko Armani, Rouge Bunny Rouge etc) are having a real moment this season, “classic” foundations are still going strong.

And here are three that caught my attention with the official description:

SS16 Foundations Chanel, Dior and Laura Mercier

Chanel LES BEIGESHealthy Glow Foundation (£36 from Selfridges)

“An invisible foundation that creates a natural healthy glow by giving skin the radiance of a day spent outdoors, while protecting it from harsh environmental conditions. The perfection of a natural glow. With a range of subtle, easy-to-wear beiges, CHANEL’s Healthy Glow Foundation frees women from their fears of using foundation and gives every skin tone a lasting healthy glow. The soft and comfortable texture glides over the skin and melts away. The texture becomes imperceptible and allows the skin to breathe freely, while protecting it from harsh environmental conditions. The complexion is evened-out and enhanced with a sheer finish.”

Laura Mercier Kohl Eye Pencils Review and Swatches

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.
