The Laura Mercier Dark Spell Fall 2013 Collection is everything I love about fall colors – rich tones and smoky eyes. Inspired by the “magical ways of women”, this color story mixes mystery and fantasy, allowing you to create your own enchanting look that demands attention.

I just loved the Baked Eye Colour ($23.00) in Magical, a beautiful shimmering white base with a black accent, and the super-sparkly black eyeshadow in Mystical, while the Satin Matte Eye Colour ($23.00) in Dark Spirit is an intense black shade.

Things are getting folky with the Laura Mercier Folklore Spring 2013 Collection – Copper and Gold Eyeshadow, Coral Lip Crayon. See swatches —> HERE!

They all blend beautifully, but before eyeshadow can be applied, you must first apply the Eye Canvas ($26.00).

This product is amazing — the best eyeshadow base I’ve used! It looks innocent enough, just like a concealer, but it absorbs any excess oil allowing for a perfect eyeshadow application with exceptional wear – no creasing or smudging.

The Caviar Stick Eye Colour ($24.00) in Smoke — a rich, sparkly black, is a soft pencil-like product that applies softly and blends easily; it wears for hours without smudging.

Also for eyes is the Kohl Liner Extreme ($24.00), a matte-black pointed bullet liner great for lining the inner rim of the eye.

There’s a new Lip Plumper in Charmed; Rose Flush is a touch more intense than the color of your natural lips. There is a slight tingle after applying this product, but it is very subtle and does the job — lips plump up nicely.

Crème Smooth Lip Colour ($26.00) in Angelic (a nude) and Merlot (a rich burgundy) offer a good balance to the strong eye look in this collection.

The Faux Lash Mascara ($24.00) has the plushest brush I have ever used! At first I was a little overwhelmed, but I did get used to it: lashes are transformed into dramatically long, full lashes.

The Face Illuminator is visually stunning! Spellbound is a rose gold shimmer that looks natural, and the Nail Lacquers ($18.00) in this collection are gorgeous!

Bewitched

Review, Comparison Before/After Photos, Swatches: Laura Mercier Fall 2013 Dark Spell Collection, Faux Lash Mascara, Smooth Finish Foundation Powder, Crème Eye Pencils, Rouge Nouveau Weightless Lip Colour

Bewitched is a super shimmery black polish with green and gold pearls; Forbidden is a silver pearl shade. After a season of clean, bright nail colors, these dark, fast-drying shades look right.

New products are also being introduced in this collection: the Longwear Crème Eye Pencils ($24.00) are fantastic. I tried Espresso and Cobalt. They are so easy-to-apply, with no dragging upon application. Cobalt is a really pretty, clean subtle bright blue; Espresso is a rich brown. There are 6 shades and each pencil comes with its own sharpener.

Other new product introductions are Rouge Nouveau Weightless Lip Colour ($24.00) – 100% wax-free lip color. I can’t get enough of Myth, a berry shade. It is in a slimline case, which always reminds of the matte lipsticks of the ‘90s that were always very drying, but that’s not the case here.

This formula is so lightweight and long-wearing, it feels really comfortable on your lips.

The Foundation Primer Protect Broad Spectrum SPF 30 PA +++ is so lightweight you could apply it to clean skin or on top of your favorite moisturizer to set the stage for flawless skin. I really liked it. I tried it on top of moisturizer, followed by foundation.

My foundation wore well into the night without having to touch it up. Smooth Finish Foundation Powder ($45.00) can be used wet or dry. It glides on smoothly, providing excellent coverage when wet or dry. Available in 20 shades.

All products are available now on Laura Mercier counters and at Sephora, Saks Fifth Avenue, Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, Macys and Lauramercier.com.
