Laura Mercier Haul

Today I treated myself to some Laura Mercier products I’ve had my heart set on. I’m excited to try them out and am eager to report back. I have high hopes for these products because I carefully chose them based on trusted reviews. :)

Laura Mercier Haul:
Creme Eye Colour brush
Caviar Stick Eye Colour in “Khaki”
Caviar Stick Eye Colour in “Amethyst”
Metallic Creme Eye Colour in “Platinum:
Lip Glace in “Baby Doll”

Here are my goodies unboxed and ready to go.

I first fell in love with Laura Mercier products in the winter when I stumbled upon the lip glosses. Mercier named her lip gloss range – “lip glace.” As a glaze texture, I’ve come to realize that there is such a thing as glosses that aren’t sticking but long lasting.

In short, I fell in love with the texture and haven’t purchased my beloved Chanel glosses since. Since the winter, I’ve been gearing up for a haul but I wanted to carefully choose key items that wouldn’t let me down.

So far, I’m happy with everything and my brief experimentation period with them has left me satisfied. I’ll have full reviews coming soon since many of you have asked about more LM products.

And the Hauling Continues…

I present to you yet another modest haul. I wish I could say that I accumulated these items over time to make it seem more practical, but I didn’t, lol. What can I say? YouTube made me do it.

1. MAC – Duo Fibre Blending/Tapered Brush 286
2. Revlon – Colorburst Lipstick 006 “Pink Sugar”
3. Josie Maran – Argan Daily Moisturizer SPF 40+ (not full size)
4. Kat Von D – Painted Love Lipstick in “Agatha”
5. Bare Minerals – Matte Mineral Foundation in “Golden Fair”
6. MAC – Mineralize Concealer in NW 15
7. Fresh – Sugar Advanced Therapy Lip Treatment (white tube)

All items purchased were based on stellar reviews online either via YouTube, blogs, and various review sites. None were items that I needed – as all hauls seem to be this way, haha. However, I was curious about everything I got apart from the Bare Minerals matte foundation.

Side note –> I have a love-hate relationship with Bare Minerals. When I was much younger, and before the time of using liquid foundations, I only used mineral ones. At that time, BM was the option that every one was raving about simply because nothing else was available yet (in my opinion). When the matte formula was first released, the shade “Golden Fair” wasn’t available, so I used “Fairly Light” which was too neutral-toned for me. Because of the unsuccessful color match, I gave up and moved onto bigger and better things – only to forget about BM for years. Recently, I got re-interested in BM’s matte foundation because of the shade “Golden Fair.” Just by looking at the loose powder particles I could tell this would be more of a suitable match for me.

I’ve decided to give BM another try because:
1. The shade “Golden Fair”;
2. the “click, lock, go” thing that makes everything less messy;
3. the introduction of the matte formula;
4. and, because Houston’s nearly year long heat wave is rapidly approaching, and I know liquid foundation will begin to slip and slide all over my face.

Having said all these things, I hope to report back to you soon.

What are you hauling? Anything you would recommend?
