New! Laura Mercier Smooth Finish Flawless Fluide

Laura Mercier has just launched their new Smooth Finish Flawless Fluide Foundation and I was lucky enough to check one out. The formula is really smooth and lightweight. I love how light it feels on my skin and yet it evens my skin tone and hides imperfections.

The picture above shows my bare skin on the left and on Smooth Finish Flawless Fluide on the right. I love how well it covers any imperfections but still looks like my skin not makeup. It has a very buildable coverage and the oil free formula kept my combo skin matte all day long.

The container does take a bit of time to get used to with the shake and tap and not making a mess. But this foundation is worth the learning curve. I am wearing the Suntan shade and really can’t get over how natural it looks while still giving me amazing coverage.

Laura Mercier Smooth Finish Flawless Fluide
A long-wear, oil-free foundation that magically blurs the line between real skin and makeup. Shake & tap to activate!

PRODUCT TECHNOLOGY: This revolutionary bi-phase, two part formula is designed to deliver the most natural looking colour and lightweight coverage. Colour true pigments rest at the bottom of the package while reflective waters (Hydro-Brilliant Technology) float to the top. Vigorously shaking the package before each use ensures the pigments blend with the reflective waters to create fresh colour every time.

To activate: with each use shake vigorously for a minimum of 10 seconds and tap several times at the end of the package by the shade label.

To apply: dispense onto back of your hand and apply to clean skin with Laura’s Foundation Sponge or fingertips. For best results, use with your preferred Laura Mercier Foundation Primer.

WHAT TO EXPECT: Once you shake and tap to activate the formula, gently release the cap. You may experience a surge of product when dispensed. This is normal for a bi-phased formula. If the formula appears separated, it has not been shaken long enough. Just put the cap back on and shake more vigorously.

Available online at www.lauramercier.com and Sephora and nationwide September at Laura Mercier Retailers.

Amra collaborated with Anastasia’s daughter Norniva and spent 8 months to create the perfect palette. And every minute of hard work payed off. I love the basic wearable colors in this palette combined with the bright vibrant shades. Its one of my favorite palettes I have used and has become my daily go-to eye shadow.

DIY Hydrating Coconut Scrub!

coconut1

Summer may be winding down but our feet are always in need of some restoration and hydration. Whether you’ve had a long day at the office, you’re suffering from dry flip-flop feet, or you’re trying to break in a new pair of heels, there is nothing a DIY at-home foot scrub can’t fix. Try the below recipe for a luxurious, at-home foot treatment from celebrity manicurist and owner of As “U” Wish Nail Spa, Skyy Hadley and your feet will feel good as new in no time! Skyy Hadley’s Recipe for the Ultimate Hydrating Coconut Scrub:

  • Begin by muddling a few fresh mint leaves in an empty jar to release their natural essential oils. This will help you relax while providing hydration.
  •  Warm up some coconut oil and pour into the jar until it is halfway full.
  • Add 2 tablespoons of honey and mix in 1 tablespoon of sugar until the sugar is completely immersed in the oil mixture.
  • Take a couple spoonfuls of the scrub and work into your legs and feet to fully exfoliate, sloughing away dead skin and smoothing out calluses, cracked heels and rough spots.
  • The coconut oil will provide a great amount of moisture, leaving skin feeling smooth and supple.
  • Also, be sure to rub on toe nail beds and in between toes to prevent nail infections and fungus (as coconut oil contains anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties).
  • Repeat 1-2 times per week for a moisturizing and revitalizing at-home spa treatment.
