New Loves - Laura Mercier Haul

Hi beauties,

I hope you're all well! I've got that excited feeling today - and I think it was the thought of writing a blog post. It's been a while since I wrote a proper blog post, and I've really missed it. So I'm cuddled up on the sofa, movie on in the background and I'm tapping away... I love these kinds of evenings, they are the best!

So today I wanted to talk about some lovely products I recently purchased from Laura Mercier. I've always been the type to thoroughly research products before I buy them, that way I don't have too many disappointments... and these all come highly recommended.

Translucent setting powder (RRP £29) - this stuff is lovely! A finely milled setting powder, which doesn't cake on the skin, doesn't set in fine lines, feels super silky and leaves you knowing you're going to get longevity from your make up! I'll probably stick to my Rimmel Stay Matte powder for every day wear, but this bad boy is definitely coming out for nights out and special occasions. 


Now I didn't necessary need another lipstick... but I fell in love with this when I saw the gorgeous beauty blogger and make up artist Zoe Newlove use it on one of the models she was doing the make up for. I thought this would be a beautiful shade to add to my kit! I would describe Roman Moon as an organgy-red (wow, that was imaginative!). There's something I really love about it as if you're not feeling like a bold red lip day but still want to make a statement - this is the lippy for you! It has a really vintage vibe!

Now, the only other primer I've previously used on myself is the Revlon Photoready primer. As I have quite dry skin I just tend to use Embroylisse to moisturise and act as a base for my foundation, but I've really wanted to try Laura Mercier's Foundation Primer and I'm so glad I did. It's very light feeling, and so far I haven't any breakouts - the formula just glides on your skin. At £28, I would also be saving this for special occasions, but it is definitely a welcome addition to my make up bag!

Would love to hear if any one has tried these products or recommendations of any other good 'uns!

Lots of love,

Samantha xo
