I stopped by my local Saks (The Shops At Riverside) to see what's new and discovered a brand new collection from Laura Mercier. It's so new and doesn't appear anywhere on the web yet, that this is kind of a scoop, I guess. Laura Mercier's pre-fall 2012 (I think it was called Film Noir, but I didn't take notes and was not allowed to photograph the display) is elegant, dusky and I could have easily grabbed it all right then and there. I showed restraint and only picked two items so far: An eye shadow duo in taupe and navy called Mystere, and this gorgeous nail polish in Cocoa Suede.
The collection includes a second Eye Colour Duet called Suspense, featuring a pretty standard peach and bronze shades. There are two other nail lacquers: a warm not quite peachy mauve that looked like RBL Om and Butter London's Tea With The Queen had a baby, and a sheer ivory loaded with glitter. The display also had four brown-based lipsticks (really nice) and an aubergine mascara.
Swatches and reviews coming soon, and probably another visit to Saks.
