Laura Mercier Second Skin Cheek Color in Barely Pink

My most favorite blush – Laura Mercier Second Skin Cheek Color

Among my high-end blushes, Laura Mercier’s Second Cheek Color is my most favorite. The blush is velvety-soft, easy to apply as it goes on smoothly and evenly on my cheeks–it’s hard to go wrong with it– and buildable without looking cakey.

I own two shades so far, but Barely Pink is the one I use often. It’s a pale pink that truly brightens my cheeks. It stays true to color almost whole day on me. πŸ™‚

My wants list including some upcoming releases

All these are high-end products πŸ™‚

Laura Mercier Extreme Neutrals Eye Shadow Palette

Laura Mercier Extreme Neutrals Eye Shadow Palette

This neutrals e/s palette is Laura Mercier’s release for this spring. When I saw the palette, I wanted it right away. Honestly, I had no idea it hasn’t been released yet at the time I first saw this. I went to the store to look for it. The saleslady told me they don’t have it yet, of course. Now I find out it was released only a few days ago.

Laura Mercier Paint Wash Liquid Lip Colour in Vermillion Red

At last, here’s the review of my favorite (included in my Best of Beauty 2015) Laura Mercier Paint Wash Liquid Lip Colour in Vermillion Red. πŸ˜€

The Paint Wash was a gift from the boyfriend (I forgot for what occasion though. LOL!). He let me choose from the Laura Mercier shop because, obviously, he has zero idea on shopping makeup. Back then, these Paint Wash were new. I had to get my hands on one, but not without an initial test. The salesperson had me try the Vermillion Red shade. He said it’s a beautiful red color that would look good on me. Then it was love at first sight! Or should I say try? LOLs. The Paint Wash was everything I wanted it to be. πŸ™‚ Sleeping it off was no help. Soon after, we got that exact shade.

Happy New Year! + Best of Beauty 2015

Late New Year’s greetings to you lovelies! πŸ˜€ Bringing you my first ‘Best of Beauty’ in 2015. I thought hard enough of what products I really liked last year. There’s hair and skin care faves besides makeup, surprisingly. I also found great beauty discoveries last year.

Tempting sets from the Laura Mercier 2015 Holiday Sets & Kits

I forgot to include in my earlier post is the Laura Mercier 2015 Holiday Sets and Kits.

Except for the Master Class Colour Essentials, there are no other eye products that I would like. Well, I specifically want their eye caviar set because I’ve heard good things about it like being able to swim with them on and they won’t get washed off. XD What I like and sort of want at the moment from their offerings this year is the Little Indulgences Hand & Body Creme Collection. I can never have enough hand creams. Hrhr~ The Blush & Glow Radiant Face Trio, on the other hand, is leaning towards to very much wanting it. Just look at that:

Laura Mercier Long Lash Mascara

The Laura Mercier Long Lash Mascara is currently my HG mascara. Do you still remember this? That was when I received this mascara for free. πŸ™‚

Long Lash Mascara 001

All the reasons I love this mascara:

  • The mascara formula is not wet, so this is a dream to apply. No Mess! It doesn’t clump either.
  • The finish is too natural that it doesn’t look like I put on mascara. It could fool anyone to think I have thick and long lashes. Hrhr~

Second quarter empties

Currently in Singapore now, waiting for my flight to CH as I finalize this post. I’m excited to get the chance to sleep. I’m hoping I’ll be alone in my seat row. πŸ˜€ Anyway, these are my empties from second quarter this year.

Clairol Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Moisturizing Shampoo

Clairol, BCL, Vitresse

I hoped this would work for me. In the long run, it didn’t. A few days into after using it, whenever my scalp would get sweaty, it would itch like crazy. An itchy scalp is unbearable!

Current hair and body skin care

So here’s my body and skin care that I’ve been using since this year started. I think I should switch or add sunblock and SPF products in there. It’s summer time! But several of these are nearly empty, so I’ll definitely start using sunblock and other for summer products. πŸ™‚

Laura Mercier Mini Lip Glace BonBon

So here’s another from the Laura Mercier Mini Lip Glace Collection – Bold Brights.

Lip Glace BonBon 001

BonBon Lip Glace is actually a slightly darker shade of peach or a muted pink-orange. I loved this because it’s my HG MLBB. There was a time this was the only lip gloss I would wear wherever, whenever until I realized I have other lip products to use.

Lip Glace BonBon 002

Lip Glace BonBon 003

Lip Glace BonBon 004v2

Similar to Grenadine, this is not tacky but stays on for a good three hours on my lips then I get a natural pink stain. See this shade on my FOTN: Farming and tanking night. I ♥ that look. Hihi~
