As I was prepping this post I had a moment of sheer shock thinking about how fast time flies. In the beauty and fashion world, we are always one season ahead, so the spring collections are already rolling out and I have visions of birds and flowers in my eyes! The Laura Mercier Arabesque Collection is limited edition for Spring 2013, and the look is soft and fresh. The shades are a poetic blend of pinks, blues, and neutrals that come together to look subtle and romantic. Personally speaking, this is one of my favorite parts about spring makeup…the freshness, the subtleties, the romanticism. I’ve got a sneak peek at the entire collection inside,
Free Spirit Baked Eye Colour Palette, $48.00: The palette consists of five semi-matte shades, with a gradation of colours from blue to blush (including: Blue Zen, Soft Cloud, Satin Ribbon, Bare Yoga, and Pink Tutu).
Crème Smooth Lip Colour in Arabesque, $26.00: This luxurious, comforting and rich lip shade provides rich colour with one smoothing swipe. The cushiony, lightweight texture can be layered to create full coverage with a lustrous finish. The limited edition shade, Arabesque, is a soft, subtle, romantic pink.
Nail Lacquer in En Pointe, $18.00: Provides chip-resistant colour and long-lasting intense shine while adding a clean and polished look the nails. The ultra-smooth formula glides on evenly, allows precise application and is fast-drying. The limited edition shade, En Pointe, is a gorgeous nude-pink.
Eye Pencil in Stone Grey and Midnight Bleu, $20.00: The limited edition shade in Stone Grey is a natural hue to accentuate the eyes and lashes. Laura Mercier Eye Pencil is also available in Midnight Bleu.
Crème Cheek Colour in Oleander and Praline, $24.00: Just a touch of these warm colors adds a stunning, healthy glow to every complexion. The shades are a natural fit to tie together and compliment the entire Arabesque look.
Lip Glacé in Bare Pink, $24.00: A high-shine, perfectly pigmented lip gloss with rich, long-lasting colour and brilliant shine that creates the appearance of fuller lips. Any skin tone is virtually enhanced by creating a subtle contrast in texture.
Lip Stain in Mulberry and Shy Pink, $20.00: This lip product has the visual effect of a stain and the comfort and sheen of a gloss; provides ideal long-term wear with a satin, balmy finish.
Faux Lash Mascara in Black, $24.00: The formula is extra-smooth, glossy and good-for-lashes, created with a blend of waxes and absolutely no fibers. Build rich, exaggerated lashes that are extraordinarily thick, super-shiny and conditioned.
Overall, I’m really excited about this collection because the shades are so universally flattering and will add a glow to your face. Nothing says spring like romantic textures and shades!
