Makeup Review, Swatches: Laura Mercier 2012 Holiday Collections - Smoky Effects Kohl Eye Pencils, Lip Glacé

Laura Mercier has a wonderful collection of holiday sets this season. The two sets I was fortunate enough to try were the Smoky Effects Mini Kohl Collection ($48.00) and the Mini Lip Glacé Collection ($48.00) The Smoky Effects Mini Kohl Collection is a great assortment of Laura’s greatest shades of eye pencils — all in travel size. It gives you a great trial run to see what the liners have to offer. It includes 8 deluxe mini sizes in the following shades:

Black Violet
Brown Copper
Stormy Grey
Black Gold
Black Turquoise
Black Navy
Antique Jade
Jet Black

I love the texture of these pencils! They glide on so easily and wear extremely well.  They are all designed to wear either on the lash line, or on the waterline — even both. A great investment if you love eye pencils!!

Next up is the Mini Lip Glacé Collection. This collection comes in two options: Soft Nudes, which include shades of pale pinks and shimmering mauves; great for a more natural, soft look. The other (which I have swatched for you below) is the Rich Berries Collection; bolder, brighter hues in deeper rose to red and plumier shades. The Rich Berries Collection contains the following shades:

Violet
Rose
Cerise (limited edition)
Sangria (limited edition)
Bare Beige

I love both of these collections as they contain a great assortment of shades, and the price is just right. A must-have for any glamour gal’s stocking this Christmas season! Laura Mercier has great products that wear well and never disappoint. So, run to your nearest Laura Mercier counter and get yours today — I can guarantee they won’t be available for long!
