I have to admit that this year's Artist Palette for Eyes & Cheeks was actually one of my favorite releases. I picked it up on a whim at Sephora during the VIB sale and have really been playing with it almost exclusively for the past 2 weeks. It's so understated yet lovely.

And why the heck is Crystal Beige not available as a single? It's awesome!!

I work for Laura Mercier and I totally love the company and the products! The foundation products all look amazing on different skintypes, and though it is a little more pricey, it is well worth the money and customers are usually very pleased with their purchase. We just received the new rose line (skincare) which includes a facial oil and a moisturize with very rich ingredients and it smells heavenly! I also love the gel liners, the caviar sticks (grey pearl is my fave) and the Secret Brightening Powder to set and brighten up my undereye are.

So I finally got 'round to trying Smooth Finish Flawless Fluide today. (ICYMI: I got the shade Vanille as a free deluxe sample from Sephora with an online code. It isn't my perfect match, but I knew that when I selected it. I was more concerned about finish and oxidizing anyway.) A rough timeline... 2 pm: Applied. No proper face primer used, though I did apply moisturizer (Embryolisse Lait Creme Concentre) a few minutes beforehand. To apply the foundation itself, I used my fingers. Didn't try it with my beautyblender dupe, but I'm thinking fingers were the way to go with this one anyway. No setting with powder. 5-6 pm: Some of my natural shine starting to come through on nose. A little bit of cakiness on the forehead, but I think that's more down to me not exfoliating well when doing my skincare. around 8 pm: A little bit of foundation bunching up in one of the corners of my nose. now: I'll be removing it soon. It's still there, pretty much. But I think it's faded some. So I don't think it would wear a full twelve hours on me, but it would wear for quite a while. No oxidation to report. (Yay!) It does set demi-matte, as they claim. I didn't really see much of the light-reflecting pigment, though. And the coverage is quite light. A bit too light for me for this time of year, and especially when I've got spots and whatnot that need concealing/covering (I would definitely need concealer with this), but I could see myself using this in the summer months, when I want less coverage and have less to conceal.

has anyone tried any of her body stuff? i am mostly interested in body scrubs
Love the body products. Nice if you like Gourmand scents. I haven't tried the scrub in quite awhile. I think it was the first one she sold so I don't know if there are different ones now. I like the texture but I usually like my scrubs a bit scrubbier, if that makes sense. But it does feel luxurious.

I recently got the Body Bronzer Brush because it was on sale and it is so amazingly soft, I love it! I'm gonna use it as a powder / finishing brush.

Don't know if this is a holiday collection already, but just bought it: The Iconics
I didnt want to, but after reading the review by Musings of a Muse, I couldn't resist anymore.
For the Germans: Apparently I got the last one available at Breuninger, since it's labeled as sold out now. In case it'll be back, there's €20 off with code BEAUTY2016, if you only buy the set.

Can anybody compare this tinted moisturiser to Chanel's hydramax tinted moisturiser or Estee Lauders daywear Plus tinted moisturiser?

NC42 ladies, what shade do you use in either the oil free tinted moisturizer or foundation?
Bumping for info on the oil free tinted moisturizer for NC43


Ha! I was looking for this thread. Surprised it's so slow. I bought a lipstick called Clementine. It's in a recent collection of glossy lipsticks and nail polishes. It's awesome. It really feels and looks like a gloss. I also bought a coral nail polish, Cabana (selling out fast!). Love it! Finally, two LM products that I enjoy after several tries. I might go back for the other lipsticks.

@Shontay did you like the tinted moisturizer?

I tried her TM years ago, you know what it might have been the regular one, and I thought it was too oily. Next time in the store I'll swatch and ask for a sample to let you know.
