Daily Beauty Items

Whenever my Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 (also available in oil free) runs low, I have a little freak out, and rush to my local Nordstrom, Sephora, Bloomingdales, Macy's, wherever and purchase a new bottle in fear that I may run out. Being so fair skinned, I purchase the porcelain color which every sales woman always tell me they have never sold before. Too which often times I feel like replying, "I know, I'm pale. I get it. Now give me my tinted moisturizer". I have been using this product daily for the last four years and absolutely love everything about it. If you are still looking for the right tinted moisturizer or perhaps you are just realizing you need to start using a tinted moisturizer, look no further than Laura Mercier. It is light weight, sheer, and provides just the right amount of coverage. It doesn't melt of your face in the sun and you barely need any to cover your entire face, plus it has SPF added in so your face is always protected!

Another item that I can't live without and use daily is Laura Mercier Metallic Creme Eye Color in Platinum. I was VERY hesitant to use this product and actually was forced to try it by the make up artist at the counter. I was all, "I hate frosty, metallic shadows...they make you look old and 80's". To which the man politely informed me just meant I was applying it wrong. So he used a brush to cover my entire eyelid up to my eyebrow and a little in the corners of my eyes, added a bit of colored shadow and some liquid liner and it was insta-glam. I bit my tongue and bought what he was selling. That was 2 years ago and I really do use it everyday as a base for all my shadows. Again, a little goes a long way and Laura (do you like how I act like we are on a first name basis?) has come out with some other fabulous colors that would suit any woman. I know that Cassandra over at Coco + Kelley is a fan of the Rose Gold. You can use this little tube to glam up your eyes, or all alone for Sunday errands.

Whatever product you choose (or don't choose), I promise you won't regret either of the above items!

I am a makeup junkie. Always looking for new stuff. Thanks for the suggestions.

Oh, dear! More product recommendations from Lyndsy! You know this will require immediate action on my part (i.e. shopping trip to Macy's to purchase anything/everything you suggest).

In actuality, I have been looking for a tinted moisturizer I can slap on before running errands (when I don't feel like getting totally "made up" but yet still don't want so scare fellow shoppers w/ my naked face)!

Thanks a bunch!

I do love my tinted moisturizer. It lasts forever - mine is the oil-free (as you know)

I am SOLD! I was introduced to Laura Mercier makeup for my wedding and just love it! I don't have these two items yet, but I will quickly try to go pick them up. Thanks for the tip!

Oh and I used the creme shadow today for the first time. I got a sample of it from Sephora, I think in gold. I like it thus far, but its only been about an hour. We'll see how it looks later in the day....
