Laura Mercier Holiday Haul

It's the season to reward myself for being a good girl all year.  And so, I present to you my Holiday gifts to myself:

I'll be posting reviews on these products once I've used it long enough.  But for now, let me give you a break down of what each of these goodies contain:

  • Mini Lip Glacé Set has five lovely shades: Sparkling, Violet, After Hours, Bare Beige and Rose.  The variety of color takes care of the need to have a matching gloss for ever lipstick you own.  Since I don't use lip gloss all the time, this will probably last me the entire year - granted I don't open them all at the same time.  If you're a lip gloss addict and need to wear it everyday, this will probably last for 3 to 5 months.  Limited edition for Holiday 2010.
  • The Travel Brush Set is another one of Laura Mercier's offerings for Holiday 2010.  It has a full sized Finishing Brush, double ended All-over Eye Color and Pony Tail (blending) brush, double ended Secret Camouflage (concealer) and Camouflage Powder brush, double ended Flat Eyeliner and Smudge brush, and a double ended Brow Definer and Brow Grooming brush.  The set includes a nice case which has enough room to store your travel sized make up and a removable mesh bag for the brushes.  So far, this is the most complete travel set I've seen with excellent quality brushes.  It was love at first sight for me but I had to think long and hard before I went ahead and purchased this.
  • The Flawless Face Kit contains the basics everyone should have in their make up train: Foundation Primer, Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20, Undercover Pot (which in turn has Secret Camouflage, Secret Concealer and Setting Powder), Secret Camouflage Brush, Camouflage Powder Brush, Velour Puff, Egg-shaped Sponge and a really cute travel bag.  There's enough product to last at least 2 months.  Keep your eye out for the expiration date - I noticed that the Tinted Moisturizer from my kit expires on March 2011.  I wanted to start using it a few months from now but because of the expiration date, I'm forced to use it all up before then.  Bummer.

I apologize for the picture - bad lighting :(

What's your Holiday gift to yourself?


  1. Wow. Nice haul! Looking forward to the review of the concealer, I've heard it's really good :)

    My holiday gift to myself might be all the shopping I've been doing. Haha! But seriously, I'm crossing my fingers for Skin Food's salmon dark circle concealer :)

  2. I'll look forward to your review of that. I'm still searching for the best concealer! :)


Thanks for giving my blog some love ♥
