Laura Mercier Classic Chic Collection

Laura Mercier, Nordstrom Anniversary, 2011, Classic Chic setFrom the moment I swatched Laura Mercier’s set for Nordstrom Anniversary, I thought, “this is the sleeper hit of this year’s anniversary sale.” There’s not a dud in the box; just a bunch of pretty, useful items at a reasonable price.

For $75, you receive a 1 oz. (perfect-for-travel) original-formula foundation primer, a full size Full Blown Volume Mascara, a four-color eyeshadow palette (containing a dual-ended Ponytail/Smudge brush), Plum Radiance blush (this is a shade from the permanent line), a short-handled blush brush, and a full-size Lip Glace.

Buff is exclusive to this palette, a warm, matte, beige near-white. Guava, a Sateen from the regular line, is a softly shimmery peony pink. Sable (another Sateen from the regular line) is a softly shimmery grey purple, kind of like Guerlain’s Oriental Metal kohl. Black Smoke is also exclusive to this palette. It’s a matte dark grey taupe.

Plum Radiance is a blush shade from the permanent line, a glowy, dusty plum-pink.

Raspberry Lip Glace is exclusive to this set, and it’s a universally flattering strawberry-candy, rose-pink. Since I forgot to sniff the lip products in Laura’s fall Canyon collection I made sure to do it this time.  Raspberry smells deliciously like a gourmet burned marshmellow (caramelized vanilla).

What do you think? Do you love it?

  • LOVE for new users. Tempting but Do Not Need for MU junkies ;)

  • juls says:

    Will this only available in store? I do not have an Nordstrom near me and I am very interested in this set to dip my feet into LM products.

  • Liis says:

    These look extremely wearable. Delicious set.

  • I completley overlooked this set when I was at Nordstrom last week. It’s pretty basic, but would work for a polished everyday/office look. Hmmm……

  • Christina says:

    I got this last week and LOVE it! Such lovely colors and a great bargain too! This was the only thing that appealed to me in the Anniversary sale.

  • PJ says:

    I agree, this was the only set that appealed to me in the anniv catalog too! I love her canyon collection, and have purchased a few shadows and lip glosses from it already. I can always find room for more LM. Its fantastic!

    How beautiful it is!! Thanks for sharing this with us, it’s gorgeous (right up my “alley”, too), and I’m running to get it!! xo ;-)

    Juls, if you don’t have a Nordstrom card, you’ll be able to buy this set (by ordering online or calling a store — ask for Kenitha at 972-702-0055) on July 15th.

    Thank you Karla!

  • Carrie says:

    Even just a month or two ago I’d probably have passed the kit by without a second thought, but I’m seriously mulling it over right now – it’s right up my current color story and it is a lot of product. We’ll see how strong my will power is tomorrow :p

  • Maribeth says:

    Her mascara is also very good. I got a sample last Spring for Beauty Week GWP and the masara is surprisingly long wearing and eye defining. I may purchase this set since I found out there is a full sized mascara as well as the eyeshadows and that lovely lippie. Thanks Karla! I’m thinking the Anniversary Sale ends July 31; better get my butt in gear!
