With my kind of work, it’s sort of impossible not to be a beauty addict. Back when I was younger when I started doing TV commercials, I knew little to nothing when it comes to make up and skin care. Slowly, I got exposed to different kinds of beauty products which eventually I find happiness in. The feeling is still the same the thrill of trying different make up and skincare wondering if its good or not is always persistent.



Receiving this package of Laura Mercier products from Rustan’s The Beauty Source made me giddy. I’m not familiar with Laura Mercier products for I only have a tube of lipstick which I barely use. You can only imagine how excited I was to try them immediately, like a kid in a candy store I cannot wait to open these goodies.


Laura Mercier Translucent Pressed Powder

Translucent powders are usually known as setting powders. They are used to set your base or foundation. Kinda like sealing your foundation so it holds & last longer for hours. It can also be used to remove excess shine Though I usually use my face powder to set, I have come to appreciate using translucent powder. It doesn’t add extra coverage which can be a good thing especially if you want to keep your face minimally covered.


Laura Mercier Candleglow Soft Luminous Foundation in Dusk

Who doesn’t want a perfect looking skin? And by perfect I mean one that doesn’t need a pile of makeup base, just glowing skin. Ironically, that ‘no makeup’ look sometimes require more products than your usual & for a momma like me, it’s a challenge to look good in under 5 minutes on a regular basis. Thankfully, there’s Laura Mercier Candleglow Soft Luminous Foundation. I’ve heard so many good reviews about this lightweight liquid foundation so I’m pretty excited to give it a go.

It was love at first swipe!


No jitters over glitters! While most luminous foundation offer that glittery effect (think of Edward in Twilight), Laura Mercier is different. Waaaay different. It’s fluid consistency–makes it blend and build– really gives that soft luminous glow, kinda like how our skin looks in low light–don’t we all look good in soft/warm light 😉

It’s the best foundation I’ve tried by far! Dusk shade blends well on my skin. Look at how it’s barely visible after I blended the swatch. Two pumps give me enough coverage to hide my skin imperfections and give me that glowing look. Will post a #FOTD on my Instagram soon!

Laura Mercier Velour Matte Lipstick in Temptation

Being a matte fanatic, I was ecstatic to try Laura Mercier Velour Matte in Temptation. Initially since it has matte in its name, I figured it’ll give off just that–a matte finish.


But to my surprise, it’s actually a satin-matte finish that gives a bit of shine and lots of moisture on my lips. I’m not a fan of red lipsticks because I think they don’t suit me well but I think this one by Laura Mercier might be an exemption. Will be posting my #FOTD wearing this on my Instagram soon.

Can’t help but gush over these Laura Mercier products particularly Candleglow Soft Luminous Foundation. I can see myself buying another bottle of it in the not so distant future (probably few months from now lol).
