New! Laura Mercier Polished Collection

I also went down to Nordstrom this weekend, only I was drawn to different counters. :) One of the collections that caught my eye this weekend was the Laura Mercier Polished collection. This collection is a mixture of finishes; matte on the eyes, shimmering and radiant on the face and semi-matte or pearlescent on the lips. It is a smaller collection, in fact I almost missed it with everything that was going on that day but it is indeed a very polished collection. I can see some of the items in this collection becoming my new staples.

My weakness for highlighters was completely exposed when I saw the star of this collection, the new Radiant Creme Cheek Colour. As soon as I saw this, I was digging through my bag to get my debit card out. It is so pretty that I don’t want to ruin the top layer of it.  But seriously ladies, this highlighter is just gorgeous… that’s all I have to say about it. Laurie and I both caved on it this weekend.

The collection also includes 3 new Matte Eye Colour Duos, a new Lip Shine and 3 new Satin Lip Colours. All the co-ordination is done for you and the collection is mistake-proof. The lipsticks are pretty and come in neutral shades that will flatter most skintones. They also feature a new long-wearing formula that goes from satin to matte within minutes and is almost “elastic” in the way to adapts to lips and stays put. I’m dying to put these to the test.

If you have all the semi-matte or neutral lip color you can handle, direct your attention to the Crystal Pink Lip Shine. This was the other item I picked up from the collection. It’s just a pot of gloss but the pink crystal shine is like the cherry on top of a delicious ice cream sundae, it just adds a special touch to your lips. I am loving the golden pink shine this gives my lips. I’m very tempted to buy backups.
