Just recently I have found a couple of newness from Laura Mercier which many of you wanted to know about them including the Velour Extreme Matte Lipsticks. I have been testing her skincare products for more than 3 weeks now.
Talking about complexion, there is no doubt on how amazing Laura Mercier’s beauty and skincare products work. Laura Mercier is one of the brands that does so well with complexion. This post also carries her newness in:
- Nourishing Rose Oil ($85.00 for 30mL)
- The Perfect Cream Multi-Tasking Moisturizer ($90.00 for 50 g)
- Velour Extreme Matte Lipstick ($37.00)
Up first is the new Nourishing Rose Oil ($85.00 for 30mL) which is a lightweight complexion oil that makes skin feel nourished and soothes the skin at the same time. Its formulated with a blend of super oils with restorative components.
The formula is designed for dry to normal or combination skin. And it is infused with some really light and soothing oils like Rose and Rosehip seed oils that balance out the skin and improve texture, as well as the Omega Gold Complex calms and helps skin moisture barrier overtime respectively. As many of you know oils are essentials in my skincare routine as I do have super dry skin and they’re the only moisturizers that help my skin recover from dryness especially during the fall/winter time. I have introduced the Nourishing Rose oil to my nightly skincare routine as a final step and my skin feels and looks nourished and plump in the morning. I do use oils under my full coverage and matte foundations as a primer but not all oils work well with foundations, you definitely need to give your oils time to absorb. Yet this one is an amazing one to use as a primer for your matte finish foundations if you have dry skin like me.
Up next is the new The Perfect Cream Multi-Tasking Moisturizer ($90.00 for 50 g), It’s a super nice and hydrating eye cream that works great under your foundation and concealer. It’s lightweight and blurs out any visible sign of ageing and adds a nice radiance to the skin. The texture feels like whip cream and it gets into the skin immediately, leaving the skin well hydrated. Its infused with Black Tea Ferment which is rich in antioxidants and improves skin texture. It’s designed for all skin textures even oily.
The formula also carries a Marine complex that draws water from the atmosphere which I find very innovative and interesting. I find the cream works very well under your makeup, it doesn’t disturb foundation or concealer like many other eye creams do. It keeps the under-eye area well hydrated throughout the day.
Last but not least Velour Extreme Matte Lipstick ($37) aren’t new from the brand but I have recently received a few new shades that I absolutely loved. I was introduced by the Velour Extreme Matte Lipsticks by the brand about more than a year ago during the Holiday time to the Fresh shade which is a nice deep pinky nude (reviewed here), that came in their limited edition lip duo for the holiday season and was one of my favourite shades to wear all year long. Yet this time the brand kindly sent over two bold and fresh colours:
- Soiree is a beautiful pumpkin coral that goes well my skin tone. And I find it very wearable during the summer season.
- Metro is a bright fuchsia color that is becoming my favorite at the moment.
The formula is ultra matte that offers intense and full coverage finish in just one stroke. It feels comfortable on lips and doesn’t dry out while on lips. The lasting power is amazing and doesn’t budge at all. No liner is needed to finish the look and yet it fits in any size bag easily. There is quite a huge selection of colours and shades that will please everyone. And I can say all three shades Fresh, Soiree and Metro are my favourites that cover me all year long.
I have been really impressed with these new arrivals and classic beauty products from Laura Mercier. Her skincare is as good as her makeup line. The Nourishing Rose Oil is perfect all year long for those who suffer from dryness. Yet the Perfect Eye Cream is one of the best eye moisturizers to plump and blur out all fine lines immediately. I love how I can wear it under my makeup without disturbing the concealer or foundation.
Velour Extreme is becoming my favourite, they’re beautiful and easy to wear. You can now find all these available at Lauramercier.com, Nordstrom.ca and Sephora.
