Laura Mercier has some amazing launches this summer including the Mediterranean Escape Collection and Rouge Essential Silky Crème Lipstick which I have been using since last two weeks and finally able to share my thoughts after having a nice time off for my family vacation before the kid's school starts.
Mediterranean Escape Collection – Summer Color Edit 2019 has some beautiful limited edition launches for summer. As the description of the collection suggests, ‘Go glamorously off the grid with tones and textures inspired by a bohemian meets jetsetter vibe.
Carefree sun-kissed days of dewy skin bathed in vibrant washes of colour flow into endless nights of balmy glosses and deep blue eyes.'
The Mediterranean Escape Collection includes Sun-Kissed Veil Riviera Sun Bronzer, Glace Touch – a gloss for eyes, cheeks, and lips, Velour Extreme Matte Lipstick, and Caviar Stick Eye Color. I have been really enjoying the Sun-Kissed Veil Riviera Sun Bronzer and Caviar Stick Eye Color in shade poolside.
Sun-Kissed Veil Riviera Sun Bronzer is a limited edition – a universally flattering lightweight balm that can be applied to the face, decolletage, legs, and arms to give skin a summer glow. The creamy texture of the bronzer glides onto the skin leaving behind a sheer, bronze illumination with a dewy finish. It applied nicely with fingertips on the face and body, to add warmth and glow to the lighter skin tones while adding a subtle hint of colour and glow to medium tan to dark skin tones. For its very natural finish, it can be part of everyday makeup or for holiday pick-me-up.

Caviar Stick Eye Color is a versatile eyeshadow stick that delivers effortless application, high-impact colour and up to 12-hour wear. The formula is pigmented and the shade range starts from nudes to deeps, shimmer and matte finishes – glide seamlessly onto lids. The cream eyeshadow stick is very easy to apply, blend, and the great thing is that it is long-wearing and crease-resistant. I have used Caviar Stick Eye Color for a few years in different shades and it never disappoints. The creamy formula gives plenty of time to smudge, blend, line, fill or define, so it's easy to create any look. I have swatched the limited edition subtle shimmery ocean blue shade called poolside.
Mediterranean Escape Collection is available at Nordstrom, Saks Fifth Avenue, and thebay.com
Rouge Essential Silky Crème Lipstick is the new lipstick launch from Laura Mercier. Rouge Essential Silky Crème Lipstick has a weightless, high-impact colour with a satin finish. The lipstick is available in 30 shades. The lipstick is encased in a sleek, high-gloss metallic case and the custom-curved bullet is sculpted to envelop the lips and deliver the intense colour in one silky swipe. The lipstick glides on effortlessly on the lips, is very smooth and moisturizing. The formula is very pigmented, even with one swipe. The formula does not settle into the lines, does not dries the lips, feathers, and stays good for over 4-5 hours on my lips. I have swatched Nude Nouveau, Rouge Ultime, and Chocolat Divin which shows you how the spectrum ranges from nude to dark shades.
The new lipstick collection is available in 30 shades passionately curated by Laura Mercier and the palette offers a full spectrum of fresh, vibrant shades that play with cool and warm undertones to suit all skin tones from fair to deep.
Laura Mercier Longwear Lipliner is a sleek pencil that outlines defines and enhances the natural shape of lips – whether used alone or with a lipstick. The formula is richly textured and long-lasting lip liner in a sleek pencil form, outlines, defines and enhances the natural shape of lips. Its unique texture is firm enough to draw a precise thin line, yet soft enough to blend and wear alone for a matte finish. The creamy formula glides on smoothly and comfortably while keeping the lip colour in place to prevent bleeding, feathering and collecting in corners of lips throughout the day. Longwear Lip Liner is available in 20 shades and I have swatched shade ‘Rosewood' which is a pretty much everyday shade with or without lipstick for me.
