Laura Mercier Day To Night Neutrals Colour & Brush Collection

I had to get this post up as this set is still currently on sale on for £37.50 (original price is £75) and I really think its worth snapping up.
It comes with a mini Foundation Primer (30ml), a refillable palette containing two eye shadow duos and a blusher, a Kohl Eye Pencil, Full Blown Volume Lash Building Mascara, Lip Glacé and a mini cheek colour brush and mini double ended ponytail/crease brush. All are full size apart from the brushes and primer.
The palette contains eyeshadows in sparkling dew (cream with a hint of pink) paired with celestial (smoky blue grey)
Sheer topaz (mink brown) paired with primrose (peachy/pink sand)
The cheek colour is petal pink (bright peachy pink)
The shadows feel smooth, blend well, pigmentation is average. Though some of the shades look like they contain micro glitter in the pan, they apply with a flattering gentle shimmer. The cheek colour I find very pigmented so I only apply a whisper, it has a glow rather than a noticeable shimmer finish.
Swatches L-R: petal pink, primrose, sheer topaz, celestial and sparkling dew
You also get the Kohl Eye Pencil in stormy grey (charcoal grey) and Lip Glacé in mystic mauve (mauve rose with subtle golden micro glitter).
I really like LM Kohls, they are creamy, pigmented and long wearing. The Lip glaces, whilst I really like the colour selection, feel a bit too tacky to make them a favourite.
The brushes that come with the collection are really good quality and feel very soft on the skin.
Finally you have the Full Blown Volume Lash Building Mascara in Black and the mini primer

I think the colours and finished look is extremely wearable and pretty. At this bargain price even if you don't feel drawn to all the items (for me the mascara is ok and I'm not a fan of the primer) I still think this is a great buy.


I bought this from


  1. Thank you so much for sharing, I am off to hunt for this now, what a fantastic bargain x

  2. Wow, what a steal! I love it. Aside from the blush, the whole thing looks perfect.

  3. That is one lovely set! Still in Athens, I am busying myself with the local sales, ransacking Kanebo Sensai and MUFE lol...
    Wishing you and your lovely family a happy, smiley and generous 2012 with lots of love :)
    Nina xx

  4. Hi Georgia,
    It is a great set, I was surprised it hadn't sold out as all the good things seem to go in the first day of sales :)

    Hi Jane,
    LOL, why I don't know what you mean ;)
    I think apart from primrose, you'd really like the colours in this set and I think you'd really like the double sided crease brush as well xx

    Hi Zuzu's Petals,
    LM really put out some nice sets, you usually have to be quick to get them so I was surprised this one was still floating around ;)

    Hi Nina,
    I'm just picturing you filling a big sack with Kanebo and MUFE ;)
    I wish you and your loved ones a wonderful 2012 as well xx

  5. I bought the set on sale too. I'm extremely disappointed with the eye colors they just don't show up on my eyes! (Only a washed out very very very close to my own eye lid color). However I love the blush which shows up nicely on my skin (I have a pink undertone that usually cancels the blush I'm wearing). Also the brushes are pretty good and the bag itself will be great for traveling. The lipgloss has a great shine that I love as well. Overall, even if I'm disappointed with the eye colors the lipstick, brushes and primer are worth the rpice.

  6. Hi Diana,
    What a shame about the eyeshadows, perhaps because I am so pale thats why they show up fine on me. Its a good thing you got the set on sale! I do think, that like you say, even if you don't like every product in the set that its still a good buy :)

  7. Purchasaed this set this week and very pleased with it. The eyeshadows are not densely pigmented but they give a good neutral polished look on me. Love everything else - this was my first foray into Laura Mercier and I don't think it will be my last. Really appreciate the heads up on this as otherwise I would have missed it!

  8. Hi Victoria,
    I'm really glad you like it, I thought it such a good deal, I'll have to keep my eye out in future for LM in the sales as it usually seems to consist of most of their holiday gift collection, I did get the eye kohl set on sale as well, which is really nice, I'll have to do a post on that soon x
