What's inside the Iconic Laura Mercier Collection
I am a self-confessed Laura Mercier fan. Her products are some of my first “big-girl” makeup, most of which I still repurchase up to this day. The Translucent Loose Setting Powder (P1,650~) for exaple is one of those beauty cult-favorites that I find to be truly worth the hype, and I’ve yet to find a more affordable dupe! I also love her Tinted Moisturizer while Liz recommends the Secret Camouflage Concealer for really dark blemishes and oily skin.
Laura’s story is quite inspiring. At 17 years old, she studied painting in France until her mother convinced her to take on a different canvas – one she has developed since into what we now know as “the Flawless Face.” And before that leads you to dream of absolutely perfect skin, Laura had a unique “flawless has many faces” mantra that actually encourages me to find my own version of flawless.
This year, Laura Mercier celebrates her company’s 20th year with a very special, shouldn’t-be-missed release. As the name suggests, the Iconics Collection (P10,500) is a beauty treasure trove of Laura’s most iconic products. These are the makeup items most loved by her fans worldwide, which include famous celebrities like Sarah Jessica Parker, Lea Michele, Kate Beckinsale, and Eva Mendes. Imagine my delight at seeing all my favorite Laura Mercier products, plus more to try! The Iconics includes seven deluxe-sized products and five full-sized products.
Here's what's inside!
Deluxe Size: Face Polish, Foundation Primer Radiance (review here), Translucent Loose Setting Powder (review here), Bonne Mine Stick Face Colour, Matte Radiance Baked Powder (one of my favorite highlighters and as well as Kathleen Lights’!), Eye Basics, Lip Glace
Full Size: Caviar Stick Eye Colour (travel-friendly and super easy to use!), Longwear Crème Eye Pencil (can be used for tightlining), Full Blown Volume Supreme Lash Building Mascara, Lip Pencil, Velour Lovers Lip Colour
Laura also released a gift set for us lipstick lovers – the Iconic Leading Lady set (P2,250/set) which comes in three shades: Catherine (nude), Sophia (rose), and Vivien (red). These are limited edition and inspired by Laura’s favorite Hollywood leading ladies. Each set comes with a Velour Lovers Lip Colour and a Lip Glace housed in a keepsake box, complete with a pretty mirror.
Whether you’re a long-time Laura Mercier fan like I am or just starting to try out her products, the Iconics Collection is a great way to collect all of the best that the brand has to offer. This is a limited edition offering so better make up your mind to gift yourself a set soon!
