Laura Mercier Canyon Collection Fall 2011 Sneak Peek



While it looks like I'll be doing some intense Chanel blogging over the long weekend (who's brilliant idea was it to come up with two collections almost at the same time?), here's a sneak peek of a few items from Laura Mercier's Canyon Collection for fall 2011. The Canyon items are already available from Laura Mercier's website and Henri Bendel in NYC (possible other counters, too). In promotion photos the star of the collection is the Cheek Mélange bronzer/blush in Canyon Sunset ($40). It's really beautiful, but as I swatched it and had the Laura Mercier makeup artist apply it on my face I wasn't sold. The shimmer was too uneven and I couldn't say the color itself was all that special. Not compared to the new Chanel ones (foreshadowing...). I passed on the blush.

My pick after having my face done were three of the 6 eye shadows (Chocolate, Canyon Clay and Pine Bronze) and the lip gloss in the original name Plum Mauve. More photos, swatches and full reviews coming next week.

  1. I'm excited for this collection, with its subdued, tasteful take on autumnal color, even though I doubt they'd work on me.

  2. Love the colors I've seen online but that's disappointing about the blush.

  3. I tend to really like LM eye shadows in general, and Fall color stories in particular (probably due to my coloring) so I'll be interested in trying these colors.
    Did you mention Chanel has a new bronzer??? Ohhhhh, I must spread the word......

  4. I'm excited to see your Chanel reviews. Too bad about LM, though there's a plummy tone back there that looks gorgeous.

  5. Dain, there are a bunch of other colors. You might find one that works, and perhaps also a lipstick (if you don't object to their scent).

  6. Cindy, I know. That blush is utterly gorgeous in the pan. Then again I've been binging on Chanel.

  7. Elizabeth, sorry for the confusion. Just the blushes I blogged about over the weekend.

  8. Sophia, I haven't had a chance yet to fully test these shadows, by they are, indeed, gorgeous.
