Tremendous thanks to the lovely Katie fromÂ My Lips But Better.Â She checked out Laura Mercier’s latest collection, Mystique, and came back with swatches. (And as a result, I think I need to go check out those Second Skin blushes!) Â Here’s her full report:
I wasn’t in love with the Sequin eye colors. They are nice if you are going for a muted look, but I was expecting more payoff, based on the impressive color in the pan. The second skin cheek colours were amazing and beautiful (as always).
City Pink true pink. Lotus Pink is pinky-apricot. Sterling is sheer silver. Violetta is plum violet. Peacock is muted, silvered teal.
Plum Noir is browned plum. Pink Tulle is medium nude pink. Cocoa Latte is warm brown. Brown Plum is plum (but not too brown). St. Tropez is light pink-bronze. Sandcastle is tanned pink.
EDIT: Katie felt that her photos might not have provided enough color information, so she took additional swatches. I wanted to show both sets of pictures, because I think more swatches = more information, which is always a good thing.
City Pink is a warm raspberry. Lotus Pink is pinky coral. The sequin eye colors show up better with sponge tip applicators, however I stand by my statement that they are sheerer than usual for Laura Mercier. Here I’ve done 4-5 layers of color and you can still see some skin.
