No, I haven’t popped out my baby girl yet! And no, we’re not going to call her Laura either. But I’m talking about the Laura Mercier Touch Up Brush Clutch For Eyes & Cheeks which landed on my beauty desk recently.
But I fooled y’all for a second, didn’t I?
Moving swiftly on…
The Laura Mercier travel-sized make-up brushes in this quartet are :-
- Cheek Colour Brush
- Pony Tail Brush
- Smudge Brush
- Flat Eye Liner Brush
This is my first time trialling Laura Mercier make-up brushes so I don’t know how these travel-sized brushes compare to the full-sized brushes, but let me tell you that the quality of these mini-me brushes are great.
The bristles feel lovely on my skin – i.e. not scratchy and irritating. I have washed them a couple of times already (#thingsIdoonmaternityleave) and the bristles have retained their shape well with minimal shedding. The size of the brushes are dinky and compact but not to the point that they are difficult to use.
However, I am not a huge fan of the mini brown clutch it comes in. The latch is a bit flimsy and the design doesn’t exude the same sophistication as the brushes.
Anyway, this would make a great Christmas gift for any beauty lovers in your life who travel a lot. It’s available at David Jones for RRP $75 AUD. Unfortunately, I am not going to be doing any travelling in the next couple of months…but the Cheek Colour and Pony Tail brushes have made its way into my Hospital Make-Up Bag – hey, I gotta look good for photos *winks*
For another $20, Laura Mercier have a Luxe Travel Brush Collection RRP $95 AUD which comes with a full-sized brush and 4 dual-ended brushes :
- Full-Size Cheek Colour Brush
- Secret Camouflage/Camouflage Powder Brush
- All Over Eye Colour/Pony Tail Brush
- Crease/Smudge Brush
- Angled Eye Liner/Flat Eye Liner Brush
