Hope you're all well!
In the last two weeks I've been buying a lot of unnecessary pretty things (as you do) at the
Laura Mercier Counter.
This is a brand that really intrigues me as it's all about being natural, being yourself, not caking it on, embracing your inner glow and about make-up that doesn't look like make-up. Interesting and a bit of a change for me.
This will be the first of a series of posts as I bought quite a few products
(The list of upcoming posts will be at the bottom)
Let's start with the
Golden Pink Sheer Creme Glow
I believe this is from their current Portofino collection and I'm not entirely sure if this will then be part of the permanent line.
This is what the packaging (typical LM packaging) and the pan look like:
This is a hand and finger swatch:

I will show you real face swatches but I'm having a very bad spotty moment so I'm hiding my face for some days!
I love this product!
♥ It's very similar to the Jemma Kid Dewy Glow Creme (2) but this one has a more pinky tone to it as well as the peach/gold.
♥ You only need a tiny bit to get a nice visible effect. This will last you for ever.
♥ It's super creamy and easy to use. I would suggest using your fingers rather than a brush. Less messy and more effective.
♥ It lasts a long time on your cheeks. Ideal for a night out!
♥ I love using it as an e/s base -prior to my UDPP to avoid creasing. It's a softer version of Rubenesque Paint Pot by Mac.
✖ The price. It's about £30ish. It's expensive but it's gorgeous and I say it's worth every penny!
✖ It says it lasts only 1 year and I cannot see myself using up this big pan in only 12 months. We'll see.
✖ It might be limited edition?
I am absolutely loving my Laura Mercier products.
I guess the high end price tag was putting me off a bit from trying them but honestly they are such a good investment! I cannot flaw any of the products so far.
Definitely check this brand if you have the budget!
I hope you enjoyed the swatches and the info.

What do you think of LM make-up?
Can you think of any dupe for this?
