Laura Mercier Club Couture Collection Photos & Swatches

Laura Mercier's new Club Couture collection has been spotted in person at Nordstrom! If you like soft light colors, then you will really like the new look Laura Mercier put together. The colors are stunning on her fair skin and just as pretty in person. You can get details on what products were used for the look on Laura Mercier's website under "What's New - Get This Look."

I picked up the following items (L to R):

* Lip Color Shimmer in Designer Beige - a warm nude-brown with very slight gold shimmer (not really shimmery like her typical shimmer formula for lipsticks)
* Creme Lip Color in Pink Label - cool cream pink (a less purple version of MAC Syrup)
* Lip Glace in After Hours - shimmery milky light pink (reminds me of Chanel Sesame)
* Foiled Eye Color in VIP Silver - highly pigmented silver sparkle


Swatches:
1) Designer Beige Lipstick
2) Pink Label Lipstick
3) After Hours Lip Glace
4) VIP Silver Foiled Eyeshadow
5) Platinum Metallic Cream Eyeshadow (not part of the collection - just for comparisons)
6) VIP Silver layered over Platinum Metallic Cream


Gloss comparisons & swatches:
1) MAC Partial to Pink
2) Laura Mercier After Hours
3) Laura Mercier Babydoll
4) Laura Mercier Pink Pearl (plumping gloss)
5) Chanel Sesame
6) Nars Turkish Delight



Combination ideas/suggestions:

I think these colors would go well with:
* a smokey eye like Edward Bess Dusk Eyeshadow and Stila's Black Cat Smudge Pot
* a soft pink cheek like Laura Mercier Barely Pink, Chanel Narcisse, or Le Metier Fresh Blush
* complimenting lip liners for the pink lipstick, Laura Mercier Chestnut or MAC Naked Rose
* coordinating lip liners for the beige lipstick, Laura Mercier's Ambrosia or Nude Lips

The lip colors seem pretty versatile so you can combine them with almost any color like:
* a smokey dark purple eye (Nars Eurydice or Armani Eyes to Kill #3)
* a neutral eye (Laura Mercier's Baked Eyeshadow Palette or Guerlain Bal de Nuit Quad)
* cool-toned eye (Chanel Mystic Eyes or Dior Smoky Crystal Quint).

There was also a Gold version of the Foil Eyeshadow which was also pretty, but a little too 24k gold looking for my skin. Would probably work well on darker skin tones though! There were a few repromoted items, such as the Whisper Cheek Duo, false lashes, and eyeliners.

  2. Ooh, can you compare Laura Mercier's lipsticks with her stickglosses? I am absolutely in love with her stickgloss formula, but am a bit hesitant to try out her other lipsticks lol... not sure why.
