More Laura Loves.

Last week, my friend Maria invited me to the "paint the world flawless" at the Laura Mercier counter at Nordstrom.  I really don't need to be asked twice.  Plus, it was time to pick up a new spring lip color.

Once I arrived, Maria introduced me to a fab new product launched by Laura Mercier and considered one of Marie Claire's 25 new products that will change your life...the Tinted Moisturizer Creme Compact.

I am already a HUGE fan of the Tinted Moisturizer   It's my go-to for every day makeup - light weight, nice coverage and easy.  I've worn it for years.  Now it comes in to-go form?  Genius.  

Even though it just takes minutes to apply the Tinted Moisturizer, I'm a bigger fan of the new Creme Compact.  It's perfect on the mornings where I am headed to the gym and I don't feel like doing a full face.  I just smooth this on with the handy applicator sponge, add a bit of blush and out the door I go.  It makes my skin dewy and natural looking.  And for someone who is NOT a make up pro, this is THE easiest way to get flawless looking skin.

The even better news for me that day?  The compact was FREE.  FREE!!  I couldn't believe it.  A $45 compact free to me for attending the event that day.  I love it!

While there, I also picked up a Matte Radiance Baked Powder in Bronze, which I was hesitant about as bronzer usually make me look orange and streaky, but this stuff is amazing as expected and adds just a hint of tan.  Maria also gave me great application tips, which this novice needed.  

And finally, the reason I went in the first place?  My new spring lips, Lip Glace in Baby Doll...cute, pink and natural.

Bottom line - get ye to Nordstrom (double points right now!) and get yourself the Tinted Moisturizer Creme Compact.  Life changing for sure.
