The star of this collection has to be the Cheek Mélange in Sensual Reflections ($42). Laura Mercier makes the most beautiful blushes and this is no exception.
“Cheek Mélange features hand-selected, complementary shades to add natural, glowing colour to cheeks. It provides natural radiance to complexion and is designed to complement all skin tones.”
The embossed flower pattern is a mix of plum, peach and gold; swirl them together and you get a pretty flattering glow suitable for all skin tones. However, on darker skin tones, it may serve more as a highlighter than blush. This blush whispers rather than shouts! The satin finish is very flattering and does NOT emphasize pores or lines like frosty blushes do. That’s one reason I love Laura Mercier–she always has the over 40 woman in mind when formulating her products! I’ve been using this almost everyday since I received it.
Another gorgeous piece from the collection is the Satin Matte Eye Colour in Tempting Green ($24). Tempting Green is a deep emerald green with very subtle sparkle.
‘Laura Mercier Satin Matte Eye Colour is a highly-pigmented eye shadow with a creamy texture that applies effortlessly with a multi-dimensional matte finish. Long-wearing formula provides rich colour payoff without dusting.”
Tempting Green is such a rich, opulent shade! It makes a gorgeous and unique smoky eye and I got NO fallout. The satin matte finish is perfection! For this look I used Laura Mercier Caviar Eye Stick in Rosegold on the lid and Tempting Green in the crease, outer third of eye and under the lash line. It blending nicely and is color dense. CoverGirl Clump Crusher mascara finishes the look. I am very pleased to add this to my collection and I l know I will be wearing it a lot this fall.
I’m also wearing Laura Mercier Lip Pencil in Carnation and Creme Smooth Lip Color in Pink Blush and Smooth Finish Flawless Fluide Foundation reviewed here.
Bottom Line: Laura Mercier’s Sensual Reflections Collection is unusual in that there are both soft AND sexy pieces to choose from. The finishes are beautiful and feminine. It’s one of best collections of the Fall offerings!
