Friday is my favorite day, as its payday and I get to go and spend my hard earned pennies on whatever I like. The purchase usually depends on how stressful the last week was, judging from the spend, last week was a stressful to normal week, next week however it will be an entirely different story (I’ve done an extra days worth of overtime). Anyway, on Friday I decided to pick up a few bits from Laura Mercier, as I’ve been intrigued by the brand for a while and really like the classic and slightly more mature feel the brand carries as opposed to other high end brands that I’m starting to feel I’ve outgrown/am becoming bored of.
(Laura Mercier – Lush Nectarine and Creme Brulee Hand Cream)
Since seeing Annas train make-up video, I knew the Lush Nectarine Blush had to be mine, it’s such a lovely colour and feels like a perfect half way between No.7s Coral Flush with its pink shimmer and Nars Gina, with its warm peach tones. When swatching it in Space NK I was initially scared it would be far too shimmery, but when applied it’s just right.
I also made a slight impulse purchase, and grabbed the Creme Brulee Hand Cream, I haven’t heard too much about the body and bath range (probably because it s so expensive) but once I smelt this I had to have it. If you love Christmas Cookie Yankee Candles, this is that in a hand cream- beautiful! I think the body and bath range is crazy expensive, but makes a lovely treat if it’s not something you’ll use up too quickly.
I’m fast becoming a massive Laura Mercier fan and am really excited to try the oil free tinted moisturiser next. Any other recommendations for LM products?
