Vlogged: Laura Mercier Flawless Face Kit Haul

7/29/2011Shen Gee


Hi Everyone!

I'm vlogging again! I wanted to share with you my recent haul at Laura Mercier, it's their Flawless Face Kit. Here, I talked about the products, the tools and how I to use it. It's really a good buy.

Please bear with how amateur this vlogging is. I was just tooo excited!! :) lol. I edited wuite a few things. I find that I need to make a script in the future vlogs as I'm more, well, coherent, in writing that I am in speaking. Needless to say that I don't think I speak english that well. So please be nice and don't criticize so much. I will improve, promise! :)

You'll also find below after the video clip, a more precise but short review of my review of the products that I was not able to express on the video. Either way, I hope it will help out those who also wants to purchase the Laura Mercier Flawless Face Kit.

Enough chatter, won't prolong the agony. Here's the video. :) (scared!)





Tinted Moisturizer with SPF 20 (Sand)

Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20
I thought that I wouldn't like the tinted moisturizer, given my propensity for anything matte. Boy oh boy was I wrong. When they say that the Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer, they weren't kidding. Even with my oily skin type, I was able to fall deeply in love with this. But yes, it doesn't really last as long and my oilies started showing up an hour or two after application. But it was like velvet upon velvet on my skin. Oh love! Indeed it was love to have it. Like a soft cashmere against my skin.

Foundation Primer

That is why I find this primer a bit helpful with keeping my makeup stay in place. But of course, with an oily face as mine (my face is really really really hella oily), this primer was still help enough to keep everything in place. It smells like a floral which I think I would need getting use to but nonetheless, a great addition to this kit.

 Undercover Pot - 3

The first time I've seen this, I was just giddy like a child since I'm one to love anything that has dual purpose, much more that this had three! There's the secret camouflage for the blemishes, the secret concealer for undereye and a setting powder! It was like winning the lotto! And it does conceal well. The left part is more for blemishes but I use for the undereye as its lighter. The right part I also use for that part but I mix both and then then spread it even on to the reddish parts of my face like corners of the nose and lips. But lazy me, doesn't do this often. I just use the lighter part fo my undereyes and I'm quite good to go.

Camouflage Powder Brush

Camouflage Powder Brush
Laura Mercier creates fabulous brushes as we all know. I especially would like to own their blush brush and slanted kabuki brush. Isn't that just the most glorious thing ever? Been hoping that other brush brands that are more affordable re-creates it because this girl can't afford the real deal yet. The Camouflage Powder is unbelievably soft when i applied the setting powder on to my under eye and it sets it real well. This is really good brush to have. But this can be seen as a good investment for makeup artist and those who are really into collection quality made brushes. For those who are still apprehensive, yes, this isn't something that you need to purchase immediately to complete your kit as your regular eyeshadow brush, powder brush or even velour puff can attain the effects Camouflage Powder Brush.

Secret Camouflage

Secret Camouflage Brush

I just love using the Secret Camouflage Brush! Super! If you watched the video, you'll see how I used this brush with the secret camouflage concealer to reduce the appearance of my dark under eyes. This is surely going in the most frequently used brush pile for sure. I usually rely on my ring finger to properly blend my under eye concealer, but with this one, I'm sure to lessen that and would only need to blend the edges and would not get to touch my under eye area too much.

Below are more pictures of this phenomenal synthetic brush.

Powder/Velour Puff and Oval Sponge

The powder/velour puff and sponge, I see more as a bonus. Although using a powder puff is also a good thing as I've founf out in practice as it sets the loose powder well. Although I find that I still am more comfortable using a powder brush or in the video, a stippling.

The sponge I appreciate but not this type of sponge since I've yet to use it. Laura Mercier, base from what I heard, makes nice sponges that really blend well. By and by, I use makeup sponges, the wedge ones from the Beauty Bar, and I really like the flawless finish even when it eats too much products.

All in all, this purchase was surely a good one. I appreciate the handiness of the products and how I can easily tuck it away in my vanity kit for when I travel. Laura Mercier have proven to be a good brand for cosmetic purchases and it doesn't disappoint in quality. I'm quite attached with the Tinted Moisturizer and the Undercover Pot. The brush seals the deal for me as well.

I recommend this set for those that loves a clean, perfect skin. With the tinted moisturizer and concealers, you'll surely have a flawless face that is really for any sort of makeup look that you want. And the Php2,450 that you'll pay for it? You won't even notice with how fabulous this kit is.


Laura Mercier is available at Rustan's Makati and Shangri-la.
