Laura Mercier launches its Fall Colour 2015 Chrome Extravagance Collection

1.9.15


At the launch

This September we see the dawn of cool, sultry tones, glitz and shimmer. It's a new awakening and having refreshed ourselves from last season's autumn shades, we embark on a carefree age of electric lights and disco balls where daring colors collide and never sleep.


Introducing the collection

The Chrome Extravagance Collection by Laura Mercier is a heart-throbbing one where shimmery shadow foils with chic glitter effects take place. The pout on the lips goes on whole, magnificently bold or nude while its smoldering smokey eye look simply takes you to another dimension where boundaries cease to exist.


Eyes Chromes Collection by Laura Mercier
The Collection of the Lip Parfait Creamy Colour Balm

Breaking it down, the whole collection consists of 1 x Eye Chromes Palette (Limited Edition), 3 shades of Lip Parfait Creamy Colour Balm (2 Limited and 1 Permanent) and 1 x Kajal d'Orient eyeliner (Permanent). Now the Extra Lash Sculpting Mascara in Black Onyx is also a part of this stunning range however as it is not completely new in the market, it is also partly a relaunch.


All about the Limited Editions

The Limited Edition Eyeshadow Palette

Moving on to the range, let's talk about the limited edition items within. The first one here that I am going to talk about is a square eyeshadow palette called 'Eye Chromes'. This is a festive cocktail of exhilarating shades for the jet set and has duo application of wet and dry. It has impressive pigment on swatch and delivers a shimmery foil effect that can last up to 10 hours which is simply stunning on the lid.

Details:

Application: (Dry) Shimmer Foil Effect, (Wet) High Coverage Metal Chrome Effect
Shades: Iced Nickel, Aluminium Grey, Purple Chrome and Blue Steel
Retail: RM195 (inclusive of 6% GST)
Availability: In counters by August 2015

The three shades of the Lip Parfait Creamy Colourbalm
The two limited edition shades

This next one right here is a beauty. Consisting of three shades (Blood Cherry, Creme de Casis and Amaretto Swirl *permanent*) there are two succulent colours in the Lip Parfait Creamy Colourbalm range that are limited edition. The consistency is smooth and pigmented plus it is also moisturizing at the same time.


However come to think of it, after swatching both lip balms on the back of the hand, the color does come out just as vibrant as the exact shade of it in the tube, so I don't know if I were to solely call it a lip balm. Its seems to be the best mix of three which is a lipstick, a balm and a gloss. These limited edition shades are beautiful colors nonetheless and extremely flattering to any skin tone.

Details:

Application: A gentle swipe across the top and bottom lid.
Shades: Blood Cherry, Creme de Casis and Amaretto Swirl.
Retail: RM99
Availability: In counters by August 2015

The full look

From the flawless look seen above, you would know that this collection is an absolute state of the art. The colors are truly sublime and to be completely honest, I am still transfixed on the eyes. On the other hand, if you would like to know the products that was used on the model, I have also listed them down for you below.

Products Used on Model:


Face: Mega Moisturizer, Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 20 Suncreen in Nude and Secret Camouflage in 2, Secret Brightening Powder #1, Contour Palette #1 and Smooth Finish Foundation Powder #1 and #19

Eyes: Eye Basic in Wheat, Eye Chromes Palette and Kajal D'Oriendt Noir Supreme

Brows: Eyebrow Gel in Clear, Extra Lash Sculpting Mascara in Black Onyx

Cheeks: Bronzing Pressed Powder (Golden Bronze) and Mineral Illuminating Powder in Candlelight

Lip: Lip Parfait in Amaretto Swirl

A New Addition

Laura Mercier Candleglow Luminizing Palette

In the meantime, let's talk about this month's newly launched luminizing palette that will be gracing the counters at Laura Mercier boutiques. This addition is called the Candleglow Luminizing Palette and is a light-infused dimensional palette that creates the perfect 'glow' for skin at anytime of the day. There are two all-over face highlighting powders and four eye colors encased within that will give that simple wash of shimmer to complete your whole look.

Details:

Shades: Glow, Spark, Light, Twinkle, Radiance and Glimmer
Retail: RM234
Availability: In counters by September 2015

Thoughts on the range

Overall, the collection is very impressive, so much so that I am actually really considering of making a purchase on the Eye Chromes and Candleglow Luminizing Palette. However that aside, if you would like to take a closer look at Laura Mercier's Fall 2015 Collection, you can always do so via their Official Webpage, Facebook Page or even by visiting any one their counters.
