Friday night I met my friend at Nordstrom’s so we could go check out the new MAC N collection in person. Nice way to spend a Friday night, right? While I was there, I also checked out Laura Mercier’s new Seduction collection. Here are a few of the things that stood out to me.
This new collections brings us a few firsts for Laura Mercier, the introduction of nail polish to the line, a new Eau de Toilette inspired by the violet flower and a new liquid eyeliner. As usual, this collection features yet another gorgeous set of eyeshadows. I really love Laura Mercier’s eyeshadows and her quads are always on my wish list. This quad here is Shy Violet and it’s my favorite out of the two quads. It features deep-eggplant, shimmery-maroon, mauve and pale-ivory-pink where Wild Violet features more blue toned shades.
Now meet Laura Mercier’s Brilliant Eye Liner, her new liquid eyeliner that promises all day wear without caking, crumbling or flaking. This product features pearl for a hint of brilliance in all of the shades of this liquid liner. The shade pictured here is Violette but you an also find Cobalt, Golden and Onyx in this collection. I didn’t pick this up but it’s been on my mind ever since I saw it, you could do some cute cat eyes with these liners.
And now for my favorite part of this collection, Laura Mercier’s Nail Lacquer. I was immediately drawn by Daring, a very rich burgundy shade. These type of red-based shades seem to be my favorite but it was actually Avant Garde that I enjoyed the most, the shade pictured here to the left. This shade is a rich, metallic deep eggplant color.
This collection also features 2 new Lip Colour shades in Mistress and Passion, both red based shades.
