Laura Mercier Shimmer Bloc in Golden Mosaic!

 Created this bun with the Claire's Large Donut... The easiest way to get a neat looking bun in no time...
Just secure a ponytail on the top of your head and then pull it through the donut and arrange the hair around securing it into place with bobby-pins! They are so super lightweight that you don't even feel it!!

The earcuff is also from Claire's - a great way to be on-trend without the need of piercing your ears!

 Wearing this Lancome Rouge In Love 181N Rouge Saint Honore, a beautiful blue toned red!

For a while I had this beautiful bronzer on my wish list and last week I went to a Laura Mercier counter, swatched it and got it! It creates such a beautiful golden glow... The shimmer is very subtle so you can use it all over the face... I love the fact that it has the divided four colours you can either swirl your brush in all of them or use them separately... In the look above, and that's how I've been using it pretty much all the time since I got it - I blended the three darkest colours and used them to contour my face and also as a bronzer to warm up my complexion... Then I took the lightest colour and applied it as a highlighter on top of my cheek bones... And of course you can mix the colours and adjust them to your complexion, going lighter or darker according to your tan... I love this one! Apparently it looks really pretty as an eyeshadow too, which I am yet to try...



  1. You look beautiful! I really want one of those Laura Mercier Shimmer Blocs.

    1. Aw thank you! :) The picture doesn't even make justice to the Shimmer Bloc, very hard to take a flash pic of shimmering products, but when you'll see it at the counter you will see how beautiful it really is! x

  2. By reading this review, makes me interest to buy the product....thank you :)

    1. These days I hardly ever buy something unless I have read lots of good reviews about the product... And this particular Shimmer Bloc had fantastic reviews, so you will enjoy it for sure! ;) x
