Nothing is more illuminating in the winter months than glistening snow. For Holiday 2013 Laura Mercier has created an entire collection to inspire the luminosity of bright spirits and holiday sparkle – White Magic.
Pink Prism Brilliant Glacé Lip Gloss ($24.00) is a sheer hot pink gloss with major flashes of shimmery green and gold. The arm swatch is a lot thicker and more pigmented (see below) than you’ll get on your lips, but that’s definitely a good thing (at least for me, I like some sparkle but I don’t want to look like I’m party rockin’ mid-day). The formula isn’t sticky at all and lasted about 3 hours, which is normal for me with a gloss. Below I took lips swatches at two different angles to show off the flashes of shimmer.
Twilight Caviar Stick Eye Colour ($26.00) is a graphite grey pearl if you look at it one way and a deep greyish taupe pearl if you look at it another way. It’s a great, go-to base shade for every color you can think of because it’ll make everything smoke and pop. I’m a huge fan of the Caviar Stick Eye Colour formula. They’re fabulous at keeping your eye looking pristine all day long. Note: There are several Illuminating Eye Colours released within this collection that would all look stunning with this as the base.
How do you look luminous for the holiday?
