The Caviar Vault Eye colour Collection is a limited-edition collection of 10 extremely versatile eyeshadow sticks that deliver effortless application, intense, buildable colour and up to 12-hour wear. The Caviar Stick Eye Color is not new to me, I have loved the formula and different shades for years and still in love, I can assure you of how creamy, smooth, blendable, effortless, and pigmented these eye colour sticks are. The longevity is so amazing. The shades included in the vault are pigment-rich in creamy shimmer and matte finishes, glide seamlessly onto the lids, stay crease and transfer-resistant. The creamy formulation gives plenty of time to smudge, blend, line, fill or define, so you can effortlessly create any look.

To Use: ‘Use as an eyeliner by applying colour to your lash line, or as a shadow and swipe onto lids. To achieve the classic smoky eye, apply the colour in a gradient, with the darkest colour at the lash line. To achieve an updated, more wearable smoky eye, apply the darkest colour in the crease and leave the center of the eyelids lighter. Blend well with a brush or fingers.’

Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer was one of the first products in my makeup stash, I loved it so much – it gave me the natural dewy skin that I always crave for. The tinted moisturizer along with the radiance primer never left my makeup vanity for years – I repurchased them few times. I was so excited when I saw the reformulated version of my favourite tinted moisturizer, not just the formula – even the packaging is new and I am so in love.

Tinted Moisturizer Illuminating Natural Skin Perfector and Tinted Moisturizer Natural Skin Perfector can be used on its own or can be used together for a dewy and radiant finish. Based on what type of finish you like, you can always use a setting powder to mattify. I prefer a little powder with the Illuminating version but for the Natural Skin Perfector – I am good to go with just a pea-size amount on my face, blend with fingers and my skin look supple, healthy, and dewy with a natural finish. The ingredients and the combination of skincare and makeup gives an extra edge to these moisturizers than just a makeup product.

Mediterranean Escape Collection – Summer Color Edit 2019 has some beautiful limited edition launches for summer. As the description of the collection suggests, ‘Go glamorously off the grid with tones and textures inspired by a bohemian meets jetsetter vibe.

Carefree sun-kissed days of dewy skin bathed in vibrant washes of colour flow into endless nights of balmy glosses and deep blue eyes.’

The Mediterranean Escape Collection includes Sun-Kissed Veil Riviera Sun Bronzer, Glace Touch – a gloss for eyes, cheeks, and lips, Velour Extreme Matte Lipstick, and Caviar Stick Eye Color. I have been really enjoying the Sun-Kissed Veil Riviera Sun Bronzer and Caviar Stick Eye Color in shade poolside.

Sun-Kissed Veil Riviera Sun Bronzer is a limited edition – a universally flattering lightweight balm that can be applied to the face, decolletage, legs, and arms to give skin a summer glow. The creamy texture of the bronzer glides onto the skin leaving behind a sheer, bronze illumination with a dewy finish. It applied nicely with fingertips on the face and body, to add warmth and glow to the lighter skin tones while adding a subtle hint of colour and glow to medium tan to dark skin tones. For its very natural finish, it can be part of everyday makeup or for holiday pick-me-up.

Laura Mercier Longwear Lipliner is a sleek pencil that outlines defines and enhances the natural shape of lips – whether used alone or with a lipstick. The formula is richly textured and long-lasting lip liner in a sleek pencil form, outlines, defines and enhances the natural shape of lips. Its unique texture is firm enough to draw a precise thin line, yet soft enough to blend and wear alone for a matte finish. The creamy formula glides on smoothly and comfortably while keeping the lip colour in place to prevent bleeding, feathering and collecting in corners of lips throughout the day. Longwear Lip Liner is available in 20 shades and I have swatched shade ‘Rosewood’ which is a pretty much everyday shade with or without lipstick for me.
