New! Laura Mercier WaterColour Mist Eye & Cheek Palette

laura mercier watercolor palette

Every once in awhile a palette comes along that is almost too beautiful to use. And Laura Mercier’s new Watercolour Clouds collection definitely falls into that category. The palette was created with little drops that look like rain. They are placed so perfectly it really does look like raindrops and on the reflective palette its just gorgeous.

I am usually not a fan of pastels the white base comes out to candy colored. But Laura Mercier has taken the white out and created the most gorgeous, wearable color. The shades are highly pigmented which is a feat with light colors.

The shadows go on velvety smooth without creasing. And with my primer they stay true all day. I am having so much fun with this collection. Its a huge departure from anything else I own and I can’t get enough!

Laura Mercier’Watercolour Mist’ Eye & Cheek Palette $52
Let calm, serenity and balance surround you with the Watercolour Mist Eye and Cheek Palette by Laura Mercier. It’s filled with modern, veil-like shades of cement green that merge with washed-out mauve, wheat and dirty navy for a look that’s both effortless and discreet.

Palette includes:
– Mist Eyeshadow
– Fog Eyeshadow
– Storm Eyeshadow
– Wind Eyeshadow
– Purple Rain Eyeshadow
– Cloud Eyeshadow
– Sunset Cheek Color
– Earth Cheek Color

Pro tips: Prime your eyelid then sweep Purple Rain from your lash line through the crease using an allover brush. Then, blend Mist from the crease fading outward on the brow bone. Use a smudging brush to add Cloud to the upper lash line, increasing in width blending outward and upward. Lightly blend Cloud over Purple Rain along the bottom lash line. Finish with an eyeliner and mascara.

Unretouched photos of Beyonce’s L’Oreal ads hit the web!


Over 200 unretouched photos from Beyonce’s 2013 L’Oreal cosmetic campaign were leaked on a fan site called The Beyonce World on Tuesday, showing what the singer looks like in her natural state.

The 33-year-old superstar, known for her hit track Flawless, appears to have uneven and pimply skin under heavily applied foundation in the pre-Photoshop images.

Beyonce has yet to comment on the unretouched photos, which were immediately taken down by the website soon after they were posted. (They were picked up by Complex and Gawker.)
The outtakes appear to be from Beyonce’s adverts for L’Oreal’s Feria and Infallible products, which advertise hair dyes, lipsticks and foundations.

Call me crazy, but I don’t see anything wrong with the pictures. I mean sure – she has some uneven skin….but she’s human, right? I don’t think the pictures are all that shocking. I think any of us could make our skin look better with the help of photoshopping. Who wouldn’t try!?

What do you think – are the pictures “shocking”?

New! bareMinerals Complexion Rescue

complexion resuce

Perfection now available in a tube. I love the look of perfected skin but can’t handle the feeling of most foundations or CC Creams. They feel fine going on but get oily and disappear as the day wears on. I was excited to hear about Complexion Rescue and see how it could help my skin.

I started using bareMinerals Complexion Rescue just over a week ago and I am definitely starting to see improvements in my skin. But let’s start with how it feels. Its very light and super hydrating but doesn’t feel heavy. It must be the magic of a gel cream because it manages to create a flawless canvas but feels like I am just wearing a moisturizer. Most days one dab will do perfect. But if my skin is being particularly annoying I can layer to get smooth, flawless coverage.

Dual fiber brush

By the end of the first week my skin was noticeably more hyrdrated. Little trouble dry spots were all but gone. This is a great option for ladies like myself with combo skin. It combats the dryness without aggravating the oily spots. And just a small dab on my Dual Fiber Brush and I can get the most perfect coverage. I love how bright and healthy this leaves my skin looking and the more I use it the better my skin looks. This is one product my beauty cabinet won’t go without.
