Sunday Dinner with Laura Mercier
The title may be a little misleading; I didn’t actually meet Laura Mercier herself but had dinner instead with the lovely team of girls from the PR company working with Laura Mercier; several other beauty bloggers; and Michelle Draper, the global makeup artist for the brand. The dinner was a cozy event held at House, a resturant at Dempsey Road. The food was pretty good but I didn’t manage to finish my appetiser, the Macadamia Crusted Pumpkin Salad, even though it was yummy.
So now you see why I needed that ginger and peppermint tea. It was such a good way to spend Sunday evening! We went home with a goodie bag each filled with Laura Mercier goodness and so I’d like to share what I got.
The Tinted Moisturizer Crème Compact SPF 20 is currently out in stores in Laura Mercier counters in Singapore and costs S$71 each. There are 12 shades in all: Porcelain, Blush, Nude, Bisque, Sand, Fawn, Almond, Tawny, Caramel, Tan, Walnut and Mocha. In each compact is a sponge applicator so this makes touching up pretty convenient.
Together with these products, Laura Mercier has also launched the Crème Smooth Lip Colour and Tinted Moisturizers.
The Crème Smooth Lip Colours are fragrance-free and contain pure olive oil and vitamin E. There are 10 shades in all: Angelic, Pink Blush, Spiced Rose, Antique Pink, Crème Coral, Mango, Red Amour, Pêche, Dulce de Leche and Plum Orchid. The lipsticks can be found in all Laura Mercier stores as well, for S$38 a pop, which I find reasonable for a lippie. Meanwhile, the Tinted Moisturizer comes in 12 shades – the exact same ones as the Crème Compact – and is selling at S$68 for a 40ml tube.
