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.
I absolutely adored the idea behind the Mally Eye Brightening Long-Wear Shadow Base Duo when I saw her present it on QVC. The concept of the product allows for a long wearing base to be worn as a primer for shadows with a pearl finish or to be worn alone to brighten the area up plus an eye brighten which had a matte finish to be worn under your eye to brighten the eye area up. Basically Mally combined the two products in one compact and allows each product to perform two great functions.
It seemed ideal to me as I’m always looking for a great base outside of my beloved Benefit Love Aid to use as both an eyeshadow primer or just worn alone plus something to brighten my eye area. Who doesn’t want wide awake, fatigue-less eyes?
This compact sounded like the ultimate solution!
Here are my thoughts!
I’m really a big fan of Skin Food Salmon Dark Circle Powder. It’s one of my HG (holy grail) products for brightening my eyes up and holding my concealer in place for all day wear. I actually recently discovered a product that works just as well but prior to that I tried out Everyday Minerals Sunlight Color Corrector as a reader had mentioned it was even better than Salmon Dark Circle Powder.
Really? Better?! How could this be? I instantly ordered it to see for myself and…
I swear any product that has “jet lag” in the name gets me. That must mean it’ll make my tired eyes and skin look all lively and awesome again if it’s fighting the effects of jet lag. Seriously, jet lag is some serious stuff….think dark circles, dry, dull skin because of the stale air in a plane.
Yes, products named after jet lag must indeed be miracle workers.
Cargo Jet Lag Concealer promises full coverage concealing power plus a formula to reduce puffiness and dark circles!
Does it work?
A week or two ago QVC had the Josie Maran Argan Oil 5 Piece Color Collection on sale. Sadly it’s now sold out but I thought I’d give you a quickie glance of the items included just in case it comes back in stock soon!
This isn’t a full review of the items. I’ll be breaking them up and reviewing each individually as I believe as Spring gets nearer you’ll probably be able to buy them this way anyway (and most are already available on QVC for purchase on their own). Needless to say the gloss, blush stick, and Argan Oil are already available for purchase on their own but those too will each get their own detailed review.
For now here’s the set, JUST IN CASE, it should make a reappearance on QVC as at least you’ll know what you are getting into!
