Laura Mercier: Space NK
This is a post dedicated to my favourite products from a brand I love, Laura Mercier. The brand is renowned in the beauty world for its base products which help to create a flawless face, their foundations and primers are their most popular items. I like Laura Mercier's 'no frills' approach where their products focus on accentuating natural beauty rather than seasonal trends which may not suit many people.
Firstly I like to prime my skin before applying makeup with the Foundation Primer - Radiance (sample size) which adds a luminous base to the skin. I then apply Silk Crème Foundation in Rose Ivory £33 with a Real Techniques Face Expert Brush, this gives the most flawless finish, covering and concealing blemishes like no other - I tend to use this product on bad skin days because spots don't stand a chance with this bad boy. I also love the Laura Mercier Mineral Power Foundation in Real Sand £31, I like to use this over the top of the crème foundation to set my makeup where I apply a light layer using a kabuki. I also use the mineral powder foundation alone as I find the coverage is pretty good, it helps to cover red patches and conceal blemishes well. I finish off the face with a dab of the Secret Brightener £24.50 on the cupids bow, down the centre of my nose and on my cheekbones. This product gives a lovely subtle glow to the face without looking sparkly/glittery. My favourite HG lipstick has to be the Crème Smooth Lip Color in Pink Blush £20, it is such a natural shade (check out my full review here).
A final special mention goes to items within the skincare and bodycare Laura Mercier line. I am currently using a sample of the Flawless Skin Repair Eye Crème (sample size) which I'm enjoying, I find the product to be quite refreshing as it noticeably helps to reduce puffiness. I am also a big fan of the Souffle Body Cremes £43.50, especially 'Fresh Fig' however I find them to be quite expensive for body moisturisers!
So there we have a quick overview of my current Laura Mercier favourites. I am yet to be disappointed with any of my purchases from this brand, next on my wishlist is the Second Skin Cheek Colour in Lush Nectarine and the Mineral Illuminating Powder. What are your favourite Laura Mercier goodies?
