I absolutely love when Laura Mercier puts together some of her fabulous little kits. I remember one of the first ones I had purchased was the Flawless Face Set and it was truly love at first try.
One of my main reasons I love these sets is the volume of products versus the tiny price tag. Laura Mercier Cosmetics aren’t particularly cheap, that’s a fact, so when these sets pop up I’m ever so happy to indulge and grab myself a nice little deal.
Here’s my story of the new Laura’s Secrets Flawless Brightened Eyes Set.
A set featuring several of Laura’s favorite products for concealing and brightening your eye area up!
The set includes full size products of Laura Mercier Secret Concealer (Shade 2), Laura Mercier Secret Brightener (Shade 1), and Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder.
Mini size price include Laura Mercier Eye Basics in Wheat (medium Beige) and Eyebright (pale baby blue).
Plus you get a full size double ended secret concealer and powder brush and a rather awesome cosmetic bag. Just a brief break down of the bag…I love the bag and think it adds value to the overall set. It’s roomy and has a nice side pocket for storing brushes or smaller cosmetics. It’s completely functional yet still manages to have a certain elegance.
The total set is $75 which I think is a great deal.
Laura includes an instruction card to brighten your eyes, conceal dark circles, and to prime lids for color. So the kit really has several functions when products are used individually.
I already own the concealer from a past kit and really like it. It conceals well with a moisturizing, highly emollient formula that easily blends and erases darkness and signs of fatigue as well as fine lines. I wouldn’t have picked this shade for myself, I would have probably gone lighter but turns out it works well at easing darkness due to the orange-y beige of the shade.
I started out life really hating Laura’s brightening powder but in recent years have grown to love it. This sets concealer beautifully well without creasing or caking when eyes are properly moisturized plus it brightens the area up considerably giving a more flawless finish.
The Eye Basics remind me of Trish McEvoy’s Eye Base Essentials but have a creamier finish so if you felt like Trish’s version was a little too matte and drying, you should fall right in with Laura’s. She included a blue to be mixed with the wheat shade as this really brightens the eye area up and preps it for color or simply as a nude look sans shadow. Mind you this isn’t Benefit Lemonaid but the effect is lovely none the less.
The product I didn’t like was the Laura Mercier Secret Brightener. This is merely a shimmery highlighter which really shouldn’t go any where under your eyes in my humblest. It’s most suited to highlighter areas around your eyes or face. I personally FAIL at the application of highlighter so I probably won’t make proper use of this product.
Ideally I’d love if they left this out and knocked off $10 bucks from the price tag! That would be awesome in my humblest!
- Those seeking an all in wonder kit for prepping eyes and easing dark circles, puffiness, fine lines, and other under eye woes.
- Those seeking a kit to address various eye issues.
- Those who suffer from dark circles (the concealer is a fabulous pick for easing darkness and brightening up the eye area).
- Those who fall into the realms of extra dark skin or extra fair (this fits medium, medium fair, and olive complexions but anyone darker or paler may find it’s not a suitable shade selection).
Overall, this is a fabulous little pick for addressing all issues with your eyes. Laura excels at great kits like this and I always find them a most excellent bargain particularly because nearly half of the products included are full size. If you’re needing something to address only your eye problems, this kit will work double time at solving your woe.
Fabulous little set.
