The complexion authority celebrates its 20th anniversary with new lip and eye sets, revised classics and a stunning 15-piece lipstick vault
Do you remember your first Laura Mercier product, mama? Mine was the Foundation Primer – Oil Free, which still remains a staple in my beauty arsenal till today. There’s nothing in my makeup kit that compares to its long-wearing, lightweight and blurring properties – all the essential factors that matter in creating a flawless makeup look that lasts, from the moment I step out in the humidity to when I’m heading home from a night out!
The Foundation Primer was the first ever primer introduced to the beauty industry in 1996, so just from that you can get a sense of Laura Mercier’s level of genius when it comes to base makeup products. Other classics include the Translucent Loose Setting Powder (perfect for setting makeup all over the face and baking), Secret Camouflage (for those pesky purple veins, zits and dark eye circles!) and Tinted Moisturizers. Chances are, you might already own any one of these or are looking into making a purchase!
To add on to your wish list mama, Laura Mercier is celebrating 20 years of catering to makeup lovers worldwide and celebs from Madonna (did you know that Laura was the artist behind the makeup look in Take a Bow and continued to be the Material Girl’s go-to makeup artist for years after?) to Sarah Jessica Parker and Julia Roberts with brand new items in store.
