Laura Mercier Paris after the Rain Spring 2016 Collection

Mercier promotes natural looking makeup for a flawless face. This is what really guides the promotion and the production of each piece that is revealed, including each of the three that have been floating about on the Internet of late, as part of the Laura Mercier Paris after the Rain spring 2016 collection. It is very French and very pretty, with lovely earth tones and gentle neutral hues to the lipsticks available. What we clearly see at the moment is a combination of two limited edition lipsticks and a gorgeous eyeshadow palette, available already in the United States of America. It can be found at Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus (where Mercier herself has worked before), and Macy’s.

Laura Mercier Paris after the Rain Spring 2016 Collection

Laura Mercier is a makeup artist born in France, who has authored the book aptly named The New Beauty Secrets: Your Ultimate Guide to a Flawless Face. She is known for her makeup and her photoshoots, born Michele Mercier in Arles, France, as the youngest of three daughters. She adopted the name Laura in order to avoid confusion with her client at the salon she worked at, actress Michele Mercier. Founding the Laura Mercier Cosmetics line, we have been treated to a wide array of incredible products that have also been used by top celebrities including Sarah Jessica Parker, Julia Roberts, and others.

The official description states this about the collection: “The reflection of lights on cobblestone streets. The dance of colours on zinc rooftops. As duo-chromatic as sheet lightning, this spring collection of subdued, neutral matte shades changes colours when topped with special effect multi-chrome pearls. Imparting a veil of iridescence like a subtle kaleidoscope. Faceted, dimensional. Capturing the light. Subtle yet edgy. Refined yet trendy. Matte meets a new textural transformation.” We can hardly say it better ourselves.

To describe the collection, we have to say that the two products included are:

Laura Mercier Paris after the Rain Eyeshadow Palette ($55.00) (Limited Edition)

This eyeshadow palette comes in limited edition, never seen before. The colors come in a slightly more matte and a slightly more shimmery version, the taupe and the blue really resonating with us. The compact in of itself is a chic representation of the colors within, closing shut with a click, the system made to keep it tightly shut. The palette includes eight shades:

• Champs-Élysée (Matte) (o.05 oz)
• Saint-Germain (Matte) (o.05 oz)
• Tour Eiffel (Matte) (o.05 oz)
• Le Marais (Matte) (o.05 oz)
• La Madeleine (Multi-Chrome Pearl Topper) (0.03 oz)
• Arc de Triomphe (Multi-Chrome Pearl Topper) (0.03 oz)
• Rue de Rivoli (Multi-Chrome Pearl Topper) (0.03 oz)
• Montmartre (Multi-Chrome Pearl Topper) (0.03 oz)

Laura Mercier Lip Parfait Creamy Colourbalm ($55.00) (Limited Edition)

It is a balm for your lips with moisturizing elements and it comes in two shades: Rive Gauche and Rive Droite. The limited edition lipsticks come in a lighter more nude-like pink as well as a deeper, lightly shimmery dusty rose pink-red. The tubes have Laura Mercier’s signatures across the silver, while the clack top clicks perfectly in place, disallowing the lipstick to have the cap fall off while in your purse or makeup bag.

• Rive Gauche
• Rive Droite
