Beautiful Beginnings with Laura Mercier
What was the first Laura Mercier product you ever tried? Did it pave way for a real romance or did it put you off the brand entirely? What was the first product you purchased? Did you love it? Hate it? Still own it?
my answer: The first product I remember trying was an eyeshadow quad called Tuxedo, which was basically a smoky gray/black smoky eye kind of palette. I really liked her Shimmer Blocs, though – pretty to look at and full of shimmer! Now, I’m a huge fan of her lip products, which seem to fly under the radar a bit, but they can pack some pigment!

Laura Mercier Fall 2012 Collection — Cinema Noir
Laura’s inspiration for 2012 draws from her background as a fine art painter and focuses on the mood and attitude of women through different art periods. For the fall season, Laura was inspired by Hollywood stars in the late 1940’s—the era when black and white film transitioned into colour. This classic period featured intellectual beauties like Ingrid Bergman, Katherine Hepburn and Rita Hayworth, and their signature looks in films had a sensual quality—slightly colourized, sexy yet subdued. The overall cinematic feeling is one of vintage charm, strong romanticism and an ultra-feminine appeal.
Makeup is modern and dramatic. Eyes wear muted shades in smoky mixes of teals and chocolates, blended together to create a true sultry appeal. Lashes are long and voluminous tipped in burgundy, defining and enhancing the eyes. Lips have a creamy soft finish in shades of roses and mauves, while cheeks are luminous and glowing. Nails are painted in soft shades of nude and cocoa.
