Laura Mercier SS’15 – Review/Swatches

Hey Glamies

I am absolutely bowled over by this beautifully simple yet impactful ss15 collection by Laura mercier 

Foundation :

Laura mercier is well known for her “Flawless Face” concept 

I was glad to try her Silk Crème moisturizing Photo Edition foundation

These days my face needs more than sheer coverage. I have some acne scars and areas where  I need medium to full coverage, but I still want something that looks natural. The new Photo edition foundation  offers medium to full coverage that looks like skin.

It blends in flawlessly with my skin. It has a thin fluid texture but isn’t too runny as long as you shake the tube properly before use. It easily covers dark spots and uneven areas quite well while still looking natural and luminous,

I’ve been using the fingers to apply or a damp sponge and the coverage is quite nice,it photographs well with a flash too

Lasting power is quite good when set with the Translucent powder, I was able to get 10 to 12 hours of wear

Highlighter :

When it comes to highlighters, I’ve traditionally been very open to all intensities of shimmer and frost.
The Texture is just divine,Its buttery smooth with a finely milled finish. It blends naturally with my skin and to give a gentle glow.

The luxurious rose gold highlighter has the most beautiful  embossed pattern  . You can use it on your cheek or brow bones, the bridge of your nose, collarbone, temples,anywhere you want a subtle gold shimmer highlight. Just use it sparingly for best results!
You guys , if u see this … Grab it immediately!!

Paint wash liquid lip color :

I’m not usually a fan of lip gloss but these babies are something new  , they are demi matte / creamy

Kinda liquid lipstick, highly HIGHLY pigmented…..

Those who are looking for a slightly glossy liquid lipstick will love these. They have a texture similar to that of a liquid lipstick but have a non-drying feel

*Adding more swipes will intensify the color.
All are variations of bright summery colors but still very wearable (even for neutral lip lovers)

Lipstick :
The eight new shades include Lychee Parfait, Rose, Audrey, Crushed Pecan, Milky Way, Praline Cream, Dry Rose and Biscotti.

There’s a hint of peach and Nude in the base to prevent it from looking too pale. BISCOTTI AND ROSE both are neutral enough for my comfort yet have enough color to brighten the face

ROSE is a bright healthy pink on the lips.
they do look flawless on the lips and require no extra tweaking (always a plus).

DRY ROSE is a soft Cranberry color which will rock your lips this spring/summer,
a quick pop of color without trying too hard !!

 Formula is super Moisturizing with a slight glossy finish.

The colors are fresh and brightening and the options this spring are great for both neutral and bright-color lovers alike.

Overall: LOVE! Healthy colors that are fresh  and yet classy & flattering to the skin in a natural way that brightens the complexion.

How I use Coconut oil in my Beauty Routine 

Hey Beautiful  girls,

I hope you all are shining😍

First of all, so SORRY for being MIA I’ve been so busy & ( lazy )  for the past couple of weeks & but now im back with another  post ! Yay

(There are so many websites / blogs that can give you a zillion uses for coconut oil, but I want share with you my personal uses. I religiously use coconut oil and  it works for me )

Im an Oil LOVER , 😍 I spent a lot of time (and $$$) trying out different products, figuring out what would make my skin return to its state of glowing bliss. But Oil’s never disappoint me !! Its the best head to toe treatment &  definitely my HG product that i can’t leave without ❤️

Here are some of my daily uses of – coconut oil

Massage : Vigorously rub the oil between my palms to warm it up. Gently apply the oil to my face in a circular motion. ( not  rubbing it too hard) for 30-60 seconds. It will make your skin soft and reduce the appearance of wrinkles

Hair oil : Are you looking for shiny,healthy,long hair ?? Then Coconut oil is for you , apply a little amount of oil 1 hour before shampooing (daily) !! And see the difference by yourself

Makeup remover: Its gentle on skin and natural ❤️I use a cotton ball and a little coconut oil to remove it. Works better than anything else, hands down.

Body lotion: After the shower, I rub coconut oil all over my body— it feels and smells amazing😍

Mouthwash : oil pulling the latest craze, The benefits are outstanding :

(-Whiter teeth –Cavity and gingivitis prevention -Better breath (halitosis suffers also reported greatly improved morning breath) -Stronger teeth and gums – Less jaw pain (TMJ sufferers noted great improvement), sleep problems and sinus issues – Alleviation of headaches, hangovers and skin issues (reports have shown improvement in acne, psoriasis and eczema) Its known for it strong antibacterial properties)

How to use : its very easy take a tablespoon of coconut oil and swish it around your mouth for 20 minutes.after 20 minutes spit the oil up!

Moisturize : I always apply oil(s) after the skin has been freshly washed or splashed with water,I would choose oil instead of a moisturizer to calm, hydrate and rejuvenate the skin faster and without possible irritation. 

*I recommend to use extra virgin / organic coconut oil to see more difference

Coconut oil – It’s been around for centuries and has become increasingly more mainstream these days! What about you ?How do you care for your skin??
