~Swatches + Looks~ ~New Makeup for Summer 2013~ Laura Mercier Folklore.....

Wednesday, April 03, 2013

 Hey Everyone!!

So many people are ready for summer because this "Spring" we got going on, ain't hittin' on NOTHING!! LOL! Its cold one day and hot the next. At least with Summer, its a hot three months, some times four months.

Laura Mercier is definitely ready for summer with a new collection coming soon called Folklore. Check out what she lists as her inspirations for the collection:


"Laura Mercier’s inspiration for the Folklore Collection stems from Aztec influences and fantastical rituals, colours in this collection are reminiscent of ancient symbols and artifacts, textiles and jewelry. When conceptualizing the collection, Laura envisioned the spirit of earth and fire infused into an illuminating new mosaic of colour. The products create a naturally bronzed look, with fiery shades that are perfect for day and night."




The Folklore Collection is available at Laura Mercier's Official Site. Go check out all the pieces of the collection! Today, I'm going to show you what I was sent.:)

 I received two Lip Crayons in Folklore and Burnt Clay and a Gel Liner in Canard......

 Lip Crayons in Burnt Clay and Folklore....
Swatched on my hand, Folklore at the top and Burnt Clay at the bottom....

Burnt Clay is a dark tan brown colored lip color. This Lip Crayon went on buttery and very smooth, just like a lipstick. Its also pigmented like one of the LM lipsticks so I would not compare Burnt Clay to one of the popular "Lip Balm Stains" that are out. This is the 2nd makeup company I have seen do a dark tan brown in a Summer or Spring collection. mark. Cosmetics also has one in their Marrakesh collection. Check out my post HERE!
However, Folklore's texture was different. It applied more balm-ish than Burnt Clay. It was also more sheer than Burnt Clay. Folklore is a bright pink with a purplish tint to it.




 Gel Liner in Canard...

 Canard swatched on the back of my hand....


 This is my first LM Gel Liner. It applies very creamy, almost mousse like. It's glossy going on but dries matte. I found it to move a lot and it smudged all day, I was cleaning around my eye every time I looked in the mirror. I tell you, tarte Gel Liners have me spoiled!!! I wasn't expecting  so much maintenance with this liner. However, the color is gorgeous!!! Canard is a dark teal blue with no shimmer. and I can't think of anything drugstore like it. Maybe high end but nothing on shelves that compare to this color.


Overall....

Beautiful collection to fit this summer's hobo and tribal chic trends. 


Disclosure: These products were sent to me for consideration. I was not paid for this post.

Both of the lip products look nice on you! The eye liner is pretty too. I need a fun color like that to take me out of my comfort zone. New follower via Nouveau Cheap's blog. Have a great weekend! Stacie xo
