New Purchases- Laura Mercier and my new favorite M.A

So I went to Lord and Taylor with my mom the other day. I've heard rave reviews about the Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer so I stopped by the counter to give it a go.

While at the counter we met the sweetest makeup artist Brunilda. She matched my skin color exactly, which never happens (EVER)! Tinted Moisturizers/ foundation always look too light so they look gray on me or they are too dark. Brunilda was amazing, she gave me a tester so I can try the Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer with my own makeup routine. She didn't pressure me to buy it, bought it anyway because I loved it so much.

I highly recommend this product it's worth the $42 price tag because: It stays on all day, doesn't break me out, matches my skin color, doesn't cake on and it makes my skin look naturally flawless with less than a dime sized amount (it's also build-able for girls who need more coverage.
I bought the Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer and my mom bought the Laura Mercier Almond Coconut Milk Souffle Body Creme. I used her body creme last night and I love the body creme as well! It makes my skin so soft and it smells absolutely amazing. It's like a gourmand perfume in a cream. The smell lasts a long time too, I put it on at night and it lasted through the whole next day.

 My Tinted Moisturzier and my mom's  body creme (I love this stuff... I might have to take it!)

Here are the containers

Look how thick and creamy the body creme is! 

Here is my tinted moisturizer tester, I use the color tan. 

Here it is with flash on my hand (sorry about the weird shadow). 

 Here it is without flash.

Look how amazing it blends into my skin! It's perfect! 

I am am super impressed with the Laura Mercier products and service. The tinted moisturizer has spf 20 and no fillers/ strange ingredients that will break out sensitive skin. I bought the oil-free version because I have oily skin.

Anyone who is the Connecticut area should definitely stop by the Lord and Taylor on High Ridge Road in Stamford CT to see Brunilda to get your color matched or to get your makeup done. She is the only makeup artist that I have wanted to go back to, and I plan to soon to check out Laura Mercier's kohl liners.

I have ALWAYS loved Laura Mercier, and at saks Janelle does a phenomenal job--I have almond tinted moisturizer for the winter and tan for the summer!

Also her tweezers are to DIE for, I've never gone back to any other type!

Go to Janelle at the Stamford Saks, i've gone to her since I've been in the 8th grade, and I've evolved with the Laura products thanks to her!

I love the almond and tan tinted moisturizer (being a latina is hard work; changing skin colors during the cold Maine winters and hot Connecticut summers) and dont even bother using additional foundation--this product hides all!


Also I recommend her tweezers! I've never gone back to a different type of tweezer after using the Laura Mercier brand--they are the best I've ever used

Keep up the great work girl!
