|Laura Mercier Illuminating Eye Colour and Secret Brightening Powder|
I opted for the Secret Brightening Powder, a repurchase for me. Not because I have run out but because I have a separate makeup bag for the gym and can't possibly be without one of my holy grail products. This power is perfect for setting concealer under the eyes, it is entirely translucent so doesn't affect the colour of the concealer. It is very finely milled and you only need a tiny bit on your brush to set your makeup. The girls at Laura Mercier recommend dipping your brush into the lid, so you don't use too much. It has a brightening effect, but doesn't use any glitter or shimmer, therefore its perfect to dust over any brightening concealers to stop them settling into any fine lines or sliding down your face.
|From Top: Secret Brightening Powder, Eye Colour in Opal Fantasy|
The second purchase was a spur of the moment one, and comes from the Laura Mercier White Magic collection. Its the Illuminating Eye Colour in Opal Fantasy. I really like paring a cat eye flick with a pale, shimmery eye colour as I find it makes me look more awake, without looking too done. This is the perfect shade for day time, it has great colour payoff and lasts a good eight hours, without primer. It could also be used for a brow or inner eye highlight.
You can get the Illuminating Eye colour for £20.00 and the Secret Brightening Powder for £18.50 both from Space NK.
