Laura Mercier Limited Edition Holiday 2010 is love as 1st sight.

Ok... I know I was supposed to check out Bobbi Brown's latest Holiday 2010 collection... but I was at 1 Utama earlier today for a meeting and when the person I was meeting told me that she was running a little late, I thought I ought to check out Laura Mercier counter just 2 floors above me, at the new wing. Walking all the way to Jusco at the old wing of 1 Utama just felt too cumbersome in case the person I am meeting suddenly arrives... so, Bobbi Brown would just have to wait.

Now I have never used Laura Mercier products before. Never. But have heard so many good things about it when an ex-boss raved about their flawless foundation and airy-light powders. Frankly, being someone who loves everything-in-a-box kit, I was very curious to check out Laura Mercier's many Limited Edition Holiday 2010 kits as I saw a few of them being advertised somewhere.

And I instantly fell in love with this... theehee :D

This collection is called, Luxe Colour Face Palette Collection Exclusive, just one of 5 various limited edition face palettes from the collection. Well, actually, I liked another one as well but the blushers looked too dull for my skin tone unlike those in this kit. And since I was already smitten by its wearable 4 eyeshadows-2 blushers-2 lippies colours, my mind went blank and instantly forgot about the face palette from Bobbi Brown that I wanted to see... huhu...

some information on the palette...

The kit also includes a mascara and they all fit nicely in a velvet drawstring pouch. Very luxurious.

I have yet to swab the colours from my new palette (although I did try out the sample on display) because I just got back from an entire day's outing and I don't want to dig my dirty fingers into it just yet. So, if you'd like to see the colours, just head out to the nearest Laura Mercier counter and start drooling! ;P

Oh, and since I was there, and have always wanted to get myself a tinted moisturiser so that I can choose to have some minimalistic look whenever possible, I decided to get one from them as well. I have checked many tinted moisturisers in the market and they all usually come in a small 30ml tube and pretty pricey. This one's a huge 50ml and cost RM159. This too, deserves a review later :)

And while you're there, check out their foundation primer that's going on a promotion (until December 2010) for only RM99 instead of its actual retail price of RM129. Pretty good deal, right? However, I have experienced many misses with primers no matter how oil-free and lasting make-up hold they'd claim and so, I refused to spend unnecessarily. Thankfully, the salesperson gave me a sample in a small tub for me to try for a week. Now that is excellent customer service :)

I like the many beautiful kits and packages that are available for Christmas. So, do check them out and tell me if you like anything you see :)
