Laura Mercier Summer 2012 Belle Nouveau Collection Review + Tutorial Video Details


Hello, everyone! I'm back with another summer review, and this Laura Mercier video will most likely be my last for the season. I liked several individual items from other brands/collections but not enough to invest in just for the sake of filming a review, you know? I'm really sorry if you were looking forward to full NARS or Lancome reviews! Dior, Chanel, and Laura Mercier were the only collections I loved enough to splurge for.. I think it will be easy to see why. The LM products are so easy to use, very versatile. I like that the color can be played up, but the green is just as easily muted or smoked out with a coordinating dark shadow. All my make-up artist girlfriends loved the quick and easy results! Hope you enjoy, too <3

Chanel Summer 2012 Review + Tutorial Product List


Be warned: this video review is veryyyy long, longer than usual because I had so many products to cover. And the more I use my Chanel Summer products, the more I love them. I haven't been so happy with Chanel make-up since last Spring! I think I might even go back a purchase a back-up of the bronzer, not the glossimer as I stated in the video, because that's how much I've been using it. The eyeshadow duo is also one of the best eyeshadows Chanel has released in ages, too! This collection is 100% worth the splurge.. I love EVERY product I purchased and it has been a while since I could wholeheartedly say that about any collection. Definitely try Lancome's new pink waterproof Artliner, too! It's a paler pink (less fuchsia), more glittery version of Urban Decay's Woodstock :)

Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Cream Compact in B30
