The Laura Mercier Chrome Extravagance Collection for Fall celebrates the glamour of the season. The look is all dressed up with daring textures and sparkling colours. Although it’s very chic, the Chrome Extravagance Collection is meant to be carefree, yet glitzy.
The Laura Mercier Chrome Extravagance Collection includes:
New, limited-edition Eye Chromes Palette ($48), including four eyeshadow shades: Iced Nickel, Aluminum Grey, Purple Chrome and Blue Steel. Can be used wet or dry. Gorgeous! The dry application delivers a shimmer foil effect, while applying with a dampened brush gives a metal chrome finish. In person, this palette is stunning!
New Kajal d’Orient Eyeliner ($28) will become part of the permanent line. This liner delivers deep carbon color with a creamy texture. I tried this in-store and loved it. A khol liner is essential for a sexy, smoky eye; this one smudges beautifully and the stylo applicator is easy to work with. Can’t wait for more colors!
Lip Parfait Creamy Colorbalm ($25) in Amaretto Swirl, Blood Cheer (new) and Crème de Cassis (new). I recently tried the new Creamy Colorbalm (see article) and absolutely love this formula. Very moisturizing, there is sheer pigmentation with a good, long-lasting finish on the lips. This is a formula you want to try!
Extra Lash Sculpting Mascara ($25, repromote) provides volume and length to lashes. In Black Onyx or Coffee Bean.
The showstopper in this collection is the Eye Chromes Palette. The colors really are beautiful, especially if you love cool tones. Selfishly the one thing I missed in this collection was a blush–even a barely-there color would have been lovely.
The new, limited edition Laura Mercier Chrome Extravagance Collection is available now in department stores including Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, Saks and Macy’s and online at Laura Mercier.com through September 2015.
