22 day, Laura Mercier
Cavewoman: Most of the popular cosmetic items at the Laura Mercier counter have not proven to work well for me. Mercier focuses on the flawless face, but nothing I had tried from this line gave me flawless. So, stopping at the Mercier counter to check out what's new there is not high on my list of priorities. The only Mercier item I had ever purchased was an eyeshadow which I soon gave away.
But if I practice what I preach, that there is something great to be found at every counter, I still have to stop by and check out what's new at Mercier. And yes, there is something great at Mercier, in the form of a tiny jar of loose white powder called Secret Brightening Powder. Annie and I were allowing the Mercier SA to show us the product, but the stark white scared us a bit. But we love anything that promises brightening, so I allowed the SA to apply the Secret Brightening Powder on my under-eye area, over my concealer. I turned to Annie to ask what she thought of the results.
Do not be afraid of the white. You won't even see it. What you will see is what's promised by the name, a brightening effect. This superfine powder disappears on the skin once it's applied, it does not settle into lines, it does not look like powder, it doesn't even feel like powder. It sets the concealer but it's weightless on the skin, and it prevents slippage or fading of concealer during the day. It gives the eye area a well-rested look, without changing the color of the concealer or making the under-eye area look strange or garish. It is a truly amazing little magical product, this Secret Brightening Powder.
I want to let the secret out!
Run to the Mercier counter and see for yourself.
Take a friend who can gasp and buy along with you.
Annieytown: Laura Mercier's Mineral Eye Powders were introduced to me by the beauty sage Shawn. He knew my extreme fondness for eye products that twinkle and sparkle.
These powders are chock full of shimmery goodness. Constellation is a plum shade with multi-colored glitter.
Asteroid is a smoky blue with an opal shimmer.
The colors have rich pigment with glitter and shimmer that does not fade.
