Every time I’ve walked through the beauty counters I always stop to check out Laura Mercier’s new Bohemia Collection, a rich collection of desert and marine-inspired shades.
And every time, I’d apply her Lip Colour Shimmer ($22 US) in Boho Bronze on my lips and be on my merry way. However when I stopped by the counter again for the fourth time the other day to swipe Boho Bronze, I knew that it was telling me something and that I just had to get it. I mean, if I have to wear a shade every time I see it that should tell me something right?
Boho Bronze (right) is a copper kissed brown, very similar to an old favorite of mine, Quartz – the very first Laura Mercier lip color I ever bought. It applies smoothly, like a dream, and stays on for a few hours. With vitamins A and E, this lippie helps to keep my pout soft and healthy looking.
While I was at the counter, I was on a summer makeup kick and also picked up a tube of HydraTint with SPF 15 ($20 US) in Bronze Tint (left), a bronze with gold pearl. I’ve never tried these before but I loved the sheer color and thought it would be a great way to touch up my lip color as well as keep me protected from the sun.
For today’s look, I choose to pair Boho Bronze with an olive green eye shadow from my shu uemura Secret Luscious Rose palette (from Holida 2008). I love how all the colors from this set is so universal, I wear combinations from it often.
I swept Clinique Almost Bronzer SPF 15 ($28.50 US) in Light/Medium on my nose, forehead, and chin for a light glow and concentrated the color on my cheeks as a blusher/bronzer. (PS – More on summer bronzers very soon!)
It’s too bad that I wore a red sweater today, I think my the lip color would have appeared much more bronze-y like the swatch on my hand had I been wearing a warmer shade like brown, ivory, or green.
It’s time to dish – tell us what makeup you’re wearing today!
