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.

    I love the idea of a burgundy mascara, but I just hope it actually performs.

    I’m loving that shimmery, nude polish.

    I love the Organza nail polish, I hope it looks as shimmery on the nail as it does in the bottle! I’m curious to see how that burgundy mascara actually looks when applied to the lashes.

    I want the burgundy mascara! Except, like the MAC one, limited edition…:'(

    I really love that Cocoa Suede nail varnish. My eyes keep coming back to it and I’m not someone who normally goes gaga for *anything* brown, let alone nail varnish!

    I love the idea of “teals and chocolates” on eyes :).  Gotta check out the teal cake liner.

  8. This collection looks like it actually has potential! One of the first collections I’ve been excited about so far.

  10. gorgeous! Gosh I love love love Laura Mercier. I don’t usually buy high-end nail polishes (to me, it’s one of those things, like mascara, that I think are every bit as good from the drugstore), but I love the bronzey tones of those 2 polishes. They’d be beautiful for fall!
