As a self-confessed lippie addict, it would come as no surprise when I would experiment with a variety of lip makeup from different brands. All eyes on Laura Mercier and their selection of lip glosses which I thought would be a great gift idea for friends last Christmas. Of course, I ended up getting me a tube myself to play around with. But, if we talk about brow makeup, I’m not at all the adventurous type. Heck, I was even dubious that I’d be able to fill my brow in with out going Brooke Shields on it. Still insecure about my brow makeup skills — simply because I know so little on how to do it right. Didn’t stop me from trying to learn, tho.
Before I left for Yangon last April, I did a bit of makeup shopping which I failed to tell you folks about back then. Apart from the NARS pressed powder, I decided to grab a pot of brow makeup. I reckon the trip will be a good excuse to experiment. I was, after all, going on an extraordinary journey that introduced a certain high to my system. So, cowabunga on the brow department. Relatively.
Laura Mercier, Lip Glace in Quartz and Warm Brow Definer
Yesterday was such a day for experiments. Lippie combo involved the Laura Mercier Lip Glace in Quartz — an extremely rich dark brown hue that topped off the MAC lip pencil + MAC frost lipstick and changed the lip colour. Of course, I had to go about the ceremonial camwhoring to document it (but had too much fun with filters so these should have to do).

*I plan to tell you folks about this one sometime — awesomeness in a pot, I tell ‘ya.
Laura Mercier, Lip Glace in Quartz
Darker IRL than it looks in the photo. Wearing it brought me back to Uni days and dark lipsticks — makes me want to buy lipsticks that are in something brown and burgundy hues. Hm. Ah, 90s.

Still trying to get the hang of it, evident in the photos wherein I clearly failed to fill my brows in as much as I should. But they look too dark and thick IRL! I don’t want to overdo it, eeep.
And, yea, I’ll get around to sharing a bit more about yesterday’s experiment — which touched on fashion this time — later on.
Any of you folks use Laura Mercier? Anything in particular you’d reco?
