The other weekend when Ashlyn & I attended the Nordstrom Beauty Trends Show where we had the pleasure of getting pampered and made over by members of the Laura Mercier team. It was such a fun morning, and as you all know I love nothing more than new make up products so I couldn't wait to scoop up some of their suggestions that day. What I love most about Laura's products are her attention to the little details and of course her ideal of the "flawless face". I have been a massive fan of her Secret Concealer for years now and swear by it...but it was the only product of hers that I used. The team at Nordstroms was so knowledge about and left me with some fantastic buys. Below are the items I got and a little about what they do.
1] Secret Concealer : This little pot might as well be a pot of gold. I haven't found a better product for dark under eye circles yet. I also use it on flared up spots as well.
2] Flawless Skin Mega Moisture Créme : I learned that my skin is actually rather dry and in need of extra moisture. [Especially after this winter...that won't seem to end. Plus the fact that I walk everywhere and I am exposed to the elements.] This cream is super hydrating and feels like heaven. I wish it was a full body moisturizer.
3] Hydrating Primer : This product simultaneously with the moisturizer and the foundation. [I use the cream, then this primer, then apply my foundation/concealer.] I haven't really dabbled in primers before, but I do love this product. It gives a nice base to my makeup and it helps to achieve that "dewy skin" look.
4] Foundation : It is now a toss up between this foundation and my beloved MakeUp Forever HD Foundation. Both are fantastic. The only plus I feel with this one is the idea of keeping all of my base, face products within one line.
5] Bronzer : This little guy was a freebie thrown in and I quite like it. It is different from my favorite NARS Laguna in the fact that it doesn't have any highlighter or shimmer to it. I like to mix the two and use them both now. The Laura Mercier for more contoured look and the NARS for a little over all color.
Have any of you tried Laura Mercier products? What do you swear by?
Many thanks to Nordstrom Pentagon City for inviting me & setting everything up.
