Yesterday, I purchased the Laura Mercier OIL-FREE Flawless Face Kit for PHP2,950 (approx USD 67) at Rustan’s Makati, seems like a lot of money but, you actually saved a lot from buying the kit instead of buying each individual items that would cost you around PHP 6,000++(approx USD145).
The Kit comes in two color selections only, which is a bit disappointing for us asian ladies. Luckily, I got my perfect shade in Nude suited for Fair to Light skintones, for reference I’m NC20 in Mac. The second shade is Sand suited for Light to Medium skintones. And unfortunately, the kit is unavailable for deeper, or darker shade.. hummmmpf!
Laura Mercier Oil-Free Flawless Face Kit combines all of their best-selling essential formulas and tools needed to create a flawless face into one travel size kit, that includes…
Clear Zippered Case
Undercover Pot Shade (undereye and blemish concealer +setting powder)
Secret Camouflage Brush
Camouflage Powder Brush
Egg Shaped Sponge
A set of products designed for a professional-looking make-up application
The brushes are all in full size retail for PHP 1,250 each and the full size Concealer Pot around PHP1,500+ … It’s really a steal!
My initial purpose was to buy a concealer and a brush to cover up my blemishes from my recent horrible break-outs, but then I was surprised that LM is currently having a Face kit. Hooray!
Foundation Primer– It’s not a typical silicone based primer, which for me is good. It’s not heavy or greasy. Prepping with this baby will make your foundation last longer, and blending much easier. I so Love it!
Tinted Moisturier- It is sheer to medium coverage that really helps to even-out skin tone. A great product alone, if you don’t have a problematic skin, or if you want to have an everyday no make-up look. Together with the undercover pot to hide some blemishes, it’s perfect!
Undercover pot includes the Secret Camouflage on the Left and the Secret Concealer on the Right. The bottom part can be twisted to reveal the Loose Translucent Setting Powder. Secret Camouflage is great for concealing blemishes, and other imperfections, while the Secret Concealer provides an excellent under-eye coverage– It has a great consistensy: creamy, moisturising, easy to apply, great for older eyes as it doesn’t crease or sink into fine lines. The Loose transluscent powder works perfectly with the secret camouflage and the secret concealer without making it dry, flaky, or cakey. I must say, this lttle pot had a lot to live up to.
Secret Camouflage Blush- Full size synthetic brush perfectly shaped for precise flawless application in the smallest area like corners of the eyes, tiny scars or blemishes. I love this baby, coats so much better than using your fingetips. God sent, Perfect, so perfect.. shall i repeat it again? PERFECT! hahaha
Camouflage Powder Blush- A well-made brush that allows you to pick up the right amount of powder and apply it exactly where you need it. Patting the powder with this brush will set the concealer flawlessly!
Velour Puff- I love to use this powder puff, has a very smooth and soft texture to it. Perfect in removing excess oil. Dab a little powder, tap the excess, and gently pat it on..
Egg Shaped Sponge- It is anti-bacterial, washable, and dosn’t crumble! They don’t leave streaky lines, definitely gives a wonderful finish to your foundation.
Overall, the kit is well worth your money! A perfect starter kit.
Give it a try, I am sure you won’t be disappointed!
