Laura Mercier Fall 2011 Canyon Collection


Laura Mercier Fall 2011 Canyon Collection

This season, Laura’s inspiration comes from the beauty of the earth, with its burning sunsets of ambered gold, lush green foliage and rustic copper canyons. The overall look is balanced between eyes, lips and cheeks. Cheeks are dusted in sunset inspired hues. Eye Colours in canyon clay, pine bronze and cedar are paired with soft golden highlights. The look is finished with lush lips in shades of russet, rose and sienna.

What’s your favorite coral lipstick?

Laura Mercier St. Tropez Lipstick

Laura Mercier’s Shimmer Lipsticks have a rather strong floral scent to them, while several of her other lip products are heavily vanilla scented (not sure why these are different).

Sandcastle applied evenly and easily without having to layer on a lot to get opaque color.
