Laura Mercier Silk Crème Foundation was my go-to for ages, in fact, you can read a very old and terrible review of it if you fancy a laugh, but that is the only Laura Mercier product I’ve ever tried. I guess I’ve felt a bit overwhelmed as to what to buy as they don’t really have a USP like other brands, Urban Decay with their Naked palettes, MAC with their lipsticks etc. I guess the closest I’ve heard is Laura Mercier base products so when I received a generous voucher from my work (not from Laura Mercier) I decided to finally try some more of that range. Oh, but I couldn’t resist trying that foundation again, just to compare the old days with my new taste.
I know that Christmas feels like quite a distant memory already but I couldn’t miss out on sharing what I got for Christmas as there’s so much goodness here. I normally write this post up straight away but actually having a few weeks to test and use the products makes this more than just a haul and more of a first impressions post. As you probably know, every Christmas and birthday I head out with my dad makeup shopping as my present and whilst I did go with a wish list, like always I deviated away – so here’s what I chose!
Recently, I’ve been lucky enough to attend a fair few blogging events and the very generous goody bags are definitely helping me cope with my current spending ban – it doesn’t feel quite so painful when there are still new beauty bits to try. I thought today I’d check in with what I’ve been trialing recently and share my first impressions as it has been a little while since I’ve chatted about all things new in beauty. I won’t ramble too much, for once, let’s just get on with the mini reviews.
