Laura Mercier Holiday 2018 Collection

Laura Mercier’s Holiday 2018 collection pieces are stunning! Laura Mercier is offering a luxury beauty gift sets this season, and theses sets feature both new offerings and cult favourites in cosmetics, skin care, bath and body. The packaging carries a very festive look associated with rose gold and gold detailing.

Up first is the Nights Out Eyeshadow Palette (C$65) which is an elegant palette that features 12 beautiful shades from light to dark shades. The palette carries a great range of warm and cool tone shades that can be layered easily. This is my first time going over Laura Mercier’s eyeshadow formula and quality wise the colors in this palette perform really well.

This palette Contains:

  • Bone – light nude beige
  • Night Violet – pale burgundy
  • Pink Pulse – beige pink
  • Stardust – light blue
  • Sequin – deep green
  • Black Frost – black
  • Neo Nude – nude beige
  • Plum Frost – deep maroon
  • Amber Glow – orange gold
  • Skyline – navy blue
  • Voodoo – dark grey

I also loved that this palette carries a mix of finishes like: matte and sateen-shimmer, I also find the selection of shades are well-chosen and organized where you can create many different neutral day to sultry night looks. The first six colors on left side are with warm undertone and the six right side carries a very cool tone shades, you can really mix and match the whole entire palette but it give you that ability to make your mind to play with warmer or cooler tones. The pigment and color payoff is there.

Mood Glow Face Illuminator trio is a limited edition of long-wearing, buildable and multidimensional highlighting powders. This is one of the most beautiful and gorgeous trio glow palette that offers a natural looking and all over glowing skin. The palette includes:

  • Ambition
  • Devotion
  • Indiscretion

This highlighting palette is formulated with prismatic pigments that offers a long wearing illumination that won’t fade off. You can mix the different shades to create your very own unique illuminator that bring light to your face, eyes and décolletage. The formula carries a soft and creamy texture that melts into the skin, providing that beautiful glow that won’t flake or crumble. The texture is buildable to a very intense finish.

Next is the Pret-A-Powder & Puff (C$48) is a limited edition light weight setting powder with a sheer coverage. This is the best-selling translucent powder set, it comes in two shades: Translucent and medium/deep. The shades are nearly for all skin tones. It sets foundation and prolong its wear and its soft focus subtlety blurs out any fine lines and imperfections.
The Laura Mercier Velour Puff to create a soft, matte finish without disturbing the foundation. I find the Velour Puff is one of the most amazing puff applicator that offers a non caking look and finishes the look seamlessly.

Up next is the limited edition Brush Strokes Lux Brush Collection (C$98) is a complete five travel friendly brush set enclosed in a leather clutch. I have always been a lover for Laura Mercier Brushes and finding them in a travel set makes me more happy. The packaging is quite luxurious looking and this set is a perfect set you need to sculpt, highlight, contour and define. This set contains:

  • Fan Brush
  • Cheek Color Brush
  • Smoky Eyeliner Brush
  • All over Eye Color Brush
  • Eye Crease Brush
  • Brush Roll

Last but not least the limited edition collection of Infusion de Rose favorites that comes in a box. This is a selection of 3 Infusion de Rose Nourishing skin care products, the collection contains:

  • Infusion de Rose Nourishing Crème which is a whipped like silky crème that hydrates skin while helps the skin to replenish and balance skin’s moisture all day long. The adds radiance and softness to the skin.
  • Infusion de Rose Nourishing Oil is a lightweight concentrated and fast absorbing facial oil that renews the glow and adds a healthy radiance to the skin. This is probably one of my favorite product from the collection.
  • Infusion de Rose Nourshing Face Polish is a creamy scrub that exfoliates skin while it helps to remove any dead skin cells with its microbeads and leaves skin soft and clean.

Overall the whole Holiday collection carries beautiful pieces. The Nights Out Palette is one of the beautiful palettes with a great range of shades and colors, I think the combination of soft nudes and berry shades with blues green and navy is quite interesting. While I think the Mood Glow Illuminating trio Palette is simply gorgeous. As a skin care lover I’m so loving the Infusion de Rose gift box, I feel this is one of the most amazing set that have pulled together from Laura Mercier skin care collection.
I find the whole collection is beautiful and amazing, it really depends on your preference on what to pick as a gift, I think any of them would be wonderful.
