Saks Exclusive Laura Mercier Spring Must-Have Collection

If you haven't filled out my survey, this is the last day I'm collecting responses in case you have any feedback you would like to leave, thanks! Click here to take survey

Out of all the Laura Mercier Exclusive Sets this year, the Saks Spring Must-Have Collection is definitely the winner! The set retails for $65 and is exclusive to Saks Fifth Avenue in the US and can now be found online here. It includes:


* full sized Babydoll Lip Glace
* mini pink rose face quad
* mini bold berries eyeshadow quad
* 2 mini brushes, face and pony tail
* mini mascara
* mini foundation primer

FYI - All the colors and items are also available in the regular Laura Mercier line with the exception of the Bold Berries eyeshadow quad which is exclusive to this set. Her mini brushes are excellent in quality and are usually just as good as the full sized versions. By now I have so many mini brushes, I'm starting to get repeats. My mom and sister get to benefit from my extras :)

It seems like a really good deal for the set. There is a cute GWP at Saks too (see pics below). The Bold Berries quad is really cute and all the shades have shimmer. I won't be swatching this quad - I did test it instore and the pigment was pretty good. Seemed to be on par with other single eyeshadow colors. I wish the quad was bigger - it seems like it might be difficult to apply since all the colors are placed so close together. I will just try to use my smaller brushes.

This is the GWP from Saks. It includes a full-sized Blush Lip Glace which is a great natural your-lips-but-better pinky shade.


Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus also have their own exclusive sets. These feature brighter shades of orange, teal and bronze. Fun for summer, but definitely not me and doesn't seem very "laura mercier." When I think of Laura Mercier's line, I think sophisticated, classic, demure. The new sets seem to be very "out-of-the-box" for her brand. Still fun and cute though. The Saks set seemed the most wearable for me. I believe each store's sets retail for $65 - so if you're near a neimans or nordies definitely check them out!

FYI - I also purchased some bath and body items along with this set for the GWP.

    I agree, this set is much nicer than the Nordstrom set. Oh dear, there's goes more money! thanks Lina!

    P.S. Being a blogger myself, you can't please everyone, so please yourself. It's your blog and your voice, do it because you love it, and don't pay attention to negative comments. You are doing a great job!!

  4. Hi Sabrina! I was wondering what the shade name of the gloss that comes in the $65 LM set is called? It doesn't say on the Saks website. And I loved your Rouge Coco post. I totally agree about feeling chic just wearing it! I got Mademoiselle and it is love <3
