Hello!

This is a brand that I am just discovering.  I have heard a lot of good things about Laura Mercier from the artists in the know.  I have a few product reviews from this brand coming soon, but in the meantime, check out what’s up for this summer!

Confident, chic, playful

Laura’s inspiration for 2012 draws from her background as a fine art painter and focuses on the mood and attitude of women through different art periods.  For Summer 2012, she invites you to escape to a dream world that explores creativity through colour, taking inspiration from Art Nouveau’s innovative spirit and painted posters. This poetic embrace of sugary happy tones in sheer textures sets the mood—soft but daring, playful yet romantic.

The face is touched in clouds of colour that bring sophistication without strong definition. Highlights include sheer milky pastel eyes and translucent lips printed in colour. Skin is illuminated with a soft, healthy touch of bronzer and glow.

This collection is available at lauramercier.com and select retailers (Bloomingdale’s, Bergdorf Goodman, Henri Bendel, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Saks Fifth Avenue, and select Belk, Blue Mercury, Lord & Taylor, and Macys)  from May 2012 for a limited time.
