One of My Favorites: Laura Mercier

I am a true Laura Mercier follower.  The first product I ever purchased was the Tinted Moisturizer in "Sand" back in college.  It was perfection in a tube and I was sold.  That began an addiction that has yet to slow down.  It is not very often I venture out to other makeup lines because, well, if it works, why would I?  The majority of my face makeup is made up of the line.  Here are some of my absolute favorites that you would be silly not to try.

I don't walk out of the house without this on.  Not only does it even out my "not so even-toned" skin, it also has SPF.  Double whammy.  And it is extremely light so you do not feel like you have anything on.

Night out on the town?  Social gathering?  This is your man.  To be complete vain, whenever I know I am going to be photographed I wear this (obviously no paparazzi as I am no "real" housewife, just friends with cameras hidden in their clutches).  You barely need any and it covers EVERYTHING.  It makes your face look completely flawless and photographs amazingly well.

This is the perfect eyeliner.  It is fabulous to wear under the top lashes for day but is so much fun to play with for a more dramatic look at night.  I swear by this and have it in black ebony, bleu marine and forest green.

I love bubble bathes and the smell of this is incredibly decadent.  It is a fabulous gift for a friend or something that you could keep selfishly for yourself.  


  1. I've been using Laura Mercier on and off for about 10 years. I started with the tinted moisturizer because a make-up artist at a photo shoot was using it on the models and recommended it to me. If it's good enough for fashion photos, it's good enough for me! I also like the mineral foundation and cover up. And I bought my friend the creme brulee trio (lotion, bubble bath and candle) for a gift last year. (That was a really good gift, come to think of it. I need more friends like me!)

  2. I recently started using the Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer because my BFF recommended it. I really like it for those days that I have no energy to do the makeup routine. The rest of my makeup is Bare Escentuals. I have been obsessed with it for eight years. I might have to try the "creme smooth" foundation for those special occasions!
