Review : Laura Mercier Foundation Primer in Radiant Bronze gives natural sunlit radiant glowing skin!

 While most Asian prefer to have fair looking skin, there are some of them who likes to have that sunlit radiant glow (or in other word TAN) on face. And you know how our skin would be damaged by going for sun tanning... those harmful UV rays will speed up skin ageing and worst come to worst cause skin cancer! 

With that Laura Mercier has created Foundation Primer in Radiant Bronze with a touch of sheer that gives you natural sunlit radiant glow with soft-focus effect. This hydrating, water-based gel preps skin with a healthy glow and creates the perfect canvas for makeup. Enriched with Jojoba Oil and Vitamins A, C and , it kisses skin with golden pearl tint creating a soft-focus, fresh-from-the-sun finish. Leaves skin ready to perfectly embrace foundation, keeping it renewed and colour-true for hours. Perfect for all skin types.

Ingredients: Water/eau/aqua, Hydrogenated Didecene, Glycerin, Pvp, Mica, Ricinus Communis (castor) Seed Oil, Sorbitan Stearate, Cetyl Alcohol, Simmondsia Chinensis (jojoba) Seed Oil, Glyceryl Stearate, Propylene Glycol Stearate, Phenoxyethanol, Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer, Propylene Glycol Isostearate, Glyceryl Isostearate, 1,2-hexanediol, Boron Nitride, Squalane, Caprylyl Glycol, Oleth-25, Ceteth-25, Tocopheryl Acetate, Polysorbate 60, Retinyl Palmitate, Triethoxycaprylylsilane, Tin Oxide, Ascorbyl Palmitate, Tropolone, Butylene Glycol, Plankton Extract. May Contain/peut Contenir/(+/-): Ci 77891 (titanium Dioxide), Ci 77491 (iron Oxides), Ci 77510 (ferric Ferrocyanide), Ci 75470 (carmine).

Note that this Laura Mercier Foundation Primer in Radiant Bronze is formulated without parabens or silicone. It has been Dermatologically tested and even suitable for people with sensitive skin.

I was actually quite shocked to see Radiant Bronze colour when I first swatched it beside my Laura Mercier Foundation Primer , the golden brown colour seems to be much more darker than my foundation shade.

As this is a primer, it would prepares and smoothes skin , creating an even surface for makeup application. 

To my surprise once I blend it the colour seems to settle in with a very nice glowy effect. I like how it's not greasy, tacky or sticky!

My review on Laura Mercier Foundation Primer in Radiant Bronze

When I first swatch the Laura Mercier Foundation Primer in Radiant Bronze I thought the colour would turns my skin into dark tan colour. But after I spread evenly on my skin, surprisingly the result is very natural as it gives a fake sun-kissed radiant skin i.e a very healthy glowing skin! 

The texture is very easy to spread and blend on my skin! As mentioned this is a primer , you can either top up with foundation on top or just have this alone. And applying this Radiant Bronze under my usual liquid foundation does not give me much difference or maybe too little for me to notice. 

How to use Laura Mercier Foundation Primer in Radiant Bronze
Apply this over moisturizer or onto clean skin before Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer or Foundation. As I want to keep the sun-kissed effect from the primer, I would personally suggest you to apply the primer first before setting it with transparent loose powder. For a better coverage, simple just brush the foundation lightly onto the skin after using Laura Mercier Foundation Primer in Radiant Bronze. 

I know many girls have pale looking skin and sick without makeup, well this Laura Mercier Foundation Primer in Radiant Bronze is what they need without needing to put on heavy makeup everyday. And now there is no reason why you need to go for sun tanning and risk your skin with harmful UV rays when you can have a natural sunlit radiant glow with Laura Mercier Foundation Primer in Radiant Bronze! I don't usually put up a lot of make up on weekends (unless there's event) so that my skin can take a break hence I usually put on this and top up with loose powder before going out !

Laura Mercier Foundation Primer in Radiant Bronze is a permanent item and available in all Laura Mercier's counter for RM139/50ml.

Swatch and Review : Laura Mercier Gel Lip Colour in Heartbreaker

I gotten myself this Laura Mercier Gel Lip Colour in Heartbreaker which is a limited edition colour under the Laura Mercier Summer 2014 Colour Story : New Attitude Collection which I blogged earlier on here.

Before I swatch and share my review about this Laura Mercier Gel Lip Colour in Heartbreaker, let me recap that for this 2014 summer Laura Mercier released 4 limited editions colour gel lip colour. Laura Mercier Gel Lip Colour is an innovative gel-based lipstick that cushions lips in comforting, sheer colour with a shine finish and subtle sweet vanilla flavor. The super smooth formula leaves lips conditioned and hydrated. Out of the 4 colours, Heartbreaker and Clementine are my favourites. 

A before picture. (p/s: My lip is pretty dry nowadays thanks to the bad weather.)

Believe it or not I don't really have a lot of sweet pink lipstick colours like this in my stash because I think it's too girlish for me. Nude lipstick is not my colour too because I have quite a pinkish lip colour and usually I would prefer to go bright colour like for red, berry or coral colour.  Nevertheless let me see if I could carry this Heartbreaker soft pink shade now :)

Swatch for Laura Mercier Gel Lip Colour in Heartbreaker

As you can see Laura Mercier Gel Lip Colour in Heartbreaker comes in a sweet pink colour, very sheer for the 1st layer and it built up a little bit as I layered it.
Texture : Smooth and gel like, non sticky
Scent : Light vanilla scent
Pigmentation : Sheer
Laura Mercier Gel Lip Colour in Heartbreaker on my lips

Review : Laura Mercier Gel Lip Colour in Heartbreaker colour turned out to be really pretty and sweet on my lips and it actually make me feel younger. The lipstick is smooth and easy to apply but it need a little bit of effort to balance up the colour on my lips ( at least 2-3 layers is needed) as the colour is sheer with shine finishing.  I like how this feel somehow hydrating on my lips, unfortunately it is not really lasting. It lasted me a 2 to 3 hours only and if I'm having a meal with it... I need to do touchup immediately after that. And I do realise the problem when I apply sheer colour like this, the lines on my lips looks so much obvious now :(

 The sweet look I have created to match Laura Mercier Gel Lip Colour in Heartbreaker.

Pink eyeshadow, pink cheek and pink lips! 

I put on Lavshuca Eye Shadow CS in PK-1 (light pink on the inner corner of my eyes and purple on the outer corner of my eyes). Top up with a little bit of brown eyeshadow on top of the purple colour. And I had my fav Too Faced Sweethearts Perfect Flush Blush on my cheek! 

Now do you think I have a Heartbreaker look? 

Laura Mercier Gel Lip Colour in Heartbreaker is a limited edition colour under Laura Mercier Summer 2014 Colour Story : New Attitude Collection. It is available at the counter for RM89/each

EOTD : Rainbow Eyes Makeup with Make Up For Ever

Yesterday I got some time to kill while waiting for an event to start, so Sephora KLCC was the perfect place to loiter and to check out some stuffs. While doing my beauty rounds, I looked at the mirror & thought that my makeup looked so plain. Then I remembered that morning I was in the rush to go out and just simply did natural brown makeup.

This is my "rainbow eyes" after playing with the colours !

And I am feeling so good because been some time I have not really play with colours because I always have to do quick makeup before I got to out out in the morning :)  

I always wanted to try Make Up For Ever Aqua cream and since all SAs were so busy serving customers, I went on try out Aqua Cream colours to "brighten up" my look. Those marked in stars is the colours that I picked up; i.e Pink Beige, Warm Beige and Intense Blue for their existing collection! 

I also picked up some of the colours from their latest Aqua Summer Collection ; i.e Delicate Pastel Green & Deep Iridescent Mauve! The green is so pretty...!!!! 
The Aqua Cream is an ultra-pigmented, long-lasting waterproof cream. Highly concentrated in mother-of-pearl pigments, it provides an immediate color intensity with a luminous finish. Its long-lasting formula will not crease or smudge under the most extreme conditions.

Oh  I love love love these Aqua cream, so easy to use...and seriously wanted to buy all those colours that I used! There is no real technique and I just use my finger to it glide it through.... so easy because the texture is so smooth...even I was applying on top on my existing eye colour. The Aqua cream colour is vibrant and really long lasting! Each Makeup Forever Aqua cream selling at RM 95 

Aqua Eyes is a waterproof liner pencil. Highly pigmented, its unique formula adheres to the eyelids and doesn't run or fade even under the most extreme conditions. Its fluid, creamy texture glides onto the skin and doesn't irritate the eye contour.
I also used Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes too! Picked up Gold, Majorelle Blue and Turquoise! This eyeliner is creamy, glides on smoothly and the colours are so pigmented! It stay on the whole night without smudging or anything....and this is really making me falling in love with colour eyeliner! Each Makeup For Ever Aqua Eyes is selling at RM 64 (if not mistaken). 

I applied Warm Beige Aqua cream all over my eyelid and from inner of my eyes applied pink beige.then applied a little bit of Delicate Pastel Green & Deep Iridescent Mauve as I applied outward. At the corner of the eyes I applied Intense blue Aqua cream.

At the first half of my upper lid on the lash line, I used Turquoise Eyes pencil eyeliner and finish it off with Majorelle Blue. To enhance the look I used Aqua Liner in Gold on my waterline. 

Note: In the morning, I am using Lunasol Skin Modeling Water Liquid Foundation OC 03, Jane Iredale Pressed Mineral Powder in Warm Sienna, Lavshuca Melting Eyes OR-1 palette, K-Palette Zero Kuma Concealer 01, Nars Orgasm Blusher and Maybelline Cat Eyes Colossal Mascara.

To finish off the look, I simply picked up a nude pinkish lipstick from Laura Mercier & applied Benefit Sugarbomb Blusher :)

Do you like my rainbow eyes makeup ? 

Should I do this more often?

p/s: Maybe I should dig out those pigment and colourful eyeshadow to play of these day!

Laura Mercier Spring 2012 Lingerie Collection & Swatch

I was happy to be invited to Laura Mercier Spring 2012 Lingerie collection launch a few days ago in Sunway Pyramid. Yes I know so fast and it's spring now !!!

The best thing is Jodi Riley, the Laura Mercier International Make up Artist from US was there to do makeup demostration and to share her tips and experiences.

She started introducing the Spring 2012 lingerie collection and I thought I heard wrongly... Lingerie ? This Lingerie collection came about because of Laura’s background as an artist. She was a fine art painter and the inspiration for this collection was the soft romantic colours and fabrics from the Victorian Age. The colours are reminiscent of Boudoir vintage lingerie pieces such as lace, petticoats and silks.

And this palette has the colours combination that could easily create Romantic, Feminine and Playful look.

Jodi doing demo on the model

As she was doing the demo I was hoping the model could sit facing infront rather the sideways as I could not really see how Jodi apply the makeup on the model :(

She highly recommended Laura Mercier eyelashes curler which could curl up short eyelashes easily.

I have tried it and easily my eyelashes curled up!

Model finished look

Model closer look no 2

Well let's see how the colours of the collection looked like ya ! I managed to do some swatch for Laure Mercier Spring 2012 collection!

Simple and classy packaging of the Eye & Cheek palette

My first impression is I love the colours combination in this palette because all this colours are "useable" and "pretty". Seems like one that I could bring for holiday easily without needing to bring so many palettes.

The combination of colours here I would think are pretty natural except for african violet. The colour is so beautiful and unique. It's violet/gray with some gold sparkles! So tempted to buy because of this african violet! *love*

Swatch of the blusher in Laura Mercier Spring 2012 collection palette

Lip shine

Tempting Coral is such a beautiful colour ... tempting my heart too!

Sheer Lip colour

I did went to the makeover to try out the collection. And honestly this is my first time trying their famous tinted moisturizer and lates foundation premier too! Kinda like it cos it is quite light but definitely not good enough to gives me a flawless look.

After makeover

I found out Laura Mercier eyeliner powder something quite unique! I was told to wet the brush before dipping them into the eyeliner powder palette. And the method of applying of eyeliner is dabbing. *unfortunately was told later on it's not waterproof*

I like how she does the makeup for me. Very natural and radiant look!

Close-up for the eyes makeup.

Group photo with the sexy panties pouch ! Yes it is a sexy pouch & it's in our goodie bag!!!

Thank you Laura Mercier for being so generous, now I can tried some of their products at home... especially the foundation premier ! And I super love the flip-up mirror with lighting at the side *so glamour feel*

Finally a picture with Jodi Riley !!

Reviews will be up after trying out the products!
