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.

  1. Whatta detailed review girl.. love it. Liking the naturalness of the foundation. I am less of a highlighter girl but this makes me use it. Lips gloss is hawwt and lipsticks well i am doubtful of the colors. It may wash me out. Nevertheless, colors look attractive.

  2. Great review Zahra! I’ve heard good things about the foundation and really curious to try it. I have some acne scars too and desperately need a full coverage. Do u know how much this is? And do they provide samples?
