Laura Mercier: Back to the 20’s (Holiday 2012 launch & products)
It’s back to blogging for me again after cramming for my crazy but successful birthday bash/ blogger sparty at Entice The Salon. I’m also working on something BIG to be released this weekend on my blog so stay tuned for that. ;)
I attended Laura Mercier’s Art Deco Holiday 2012 collection launch last month at Prive in The Fort. The theme was something that I’ve never had before~ The 1920’s!
Obviously, all the women dressed up as flapper dancers. Hands down to the super bling bling ensemble of Sarah Tirona! :)
Martha & Paul also came up with an effortless 1920’s look.
Laura Mercier’s global makeup artist, Jeffrey Tasker, livened up the whole room as soon as he stepped on the stage.
There were 3 masked women that were ready to share their secret weapons/ Laura Mercier products with us…
First up was Laura Mercier’s uber-famous tinted moisturizer. I’ve heard of so many raves about this product. It’s actually how I heard about the brand. Look at how flawless she looks! It’s already available in compact form now so those who love to do makeup in the car will have an easier time applying it. XD
Next up, we have Creme Smooth Lip Color Creme in Red Amour. Later on, jeffrey showed us how “kiss-proof” this product is by his ‘special’ demonstration.
I’ll be honest, I’m not so sure which product they revealed on the last one but I think it was their eyeshadow. I was already pre-occupied with making weekend plans at that time…
..with our lovely little angel, Angela a.k.a Lush Angel! ;D So ironic that she’s using my villain-y looking black feather boa in this photo.
So when Jeffrey realized that the crowd was becoming restless, he did this craaazy thing. He applied lipstick on himself (without a mirror!) and continued hosting the event.
We couldn’t stop laughing because he looked so funny!! He would make a great host for ANY event.
Sarah was lucky enough to get a big smack from him when she claimed her prize on stage.
After the event, I went around to check out the products by the stage. I reaaally liked the scent of their latest Vanilla Bath & Body line. I think I might get a set for my parents this Christmas.
I was able to get ahold of Paul for a 1920’s photo. He doesn’t seem to like the idea of being tangled by a feather boa though. haha!
Thank you Rustan’s and Laura Mercier for letting me take home these goodies! These have never left my dresser or makeup kit since I got them. Been using them on a daily basis.
Normally, I don’t like using concealer on a daily basis, but I see to it that I grab Laura Mercier’s Undercover Pot on my way out whenever I’m in a hurry. It’s a 3-in-1 pot that includes 2 type of concealers; one for dark circles and one for pimples or other facial imperfections. The powder underneath the concealers is a loose setting powder. I use this after applying all my makeup or when re-touching.
One makeup that i always neglect would be lip liner. I guess I’m always in a hurry so i don’t have the luxury of time to line my lips and apply lipstick perfectly every time but I try my best to do so with this Praline (coral/nude) lip pencil. It goes perfectly with the nude nail polish from Laura Mercier’s Fall 2012 nail lacquer collection.
Out of all the things I got, their Flawless Skin Tone Perfecting Cream is my favorite! You can see in this photo that it’s already almost half empty since I’ve been using it for a month. My skin never had any allergic reactions even on the 1st try! Aside from its tone-correcting/ perfecting promise, it serves as a great makeup base too. :)
Thank you laura Mercier/ Rustan’s for the fun event. I finally got to wear my tassel dress, satin gloves and feather boa out! ;D
