First Look: Pieces From the Laura Mercier Cinema Noir Collection for Fall 2012


This is more of a ‘first look’ of a few pieces from the upcoming Cinema Noir Collection from Laura Mercier for fall 2012 in lieu of a full review. I haven’t had a chance to test the wear time of the polish yet, and since this is my first Laura Mercier polish—I have to! But I do know one thing for sure, the eyeshadow duo is fabulous. Let’s take a look at two offerings from Cinema Noir!

Eye Colour Duet in Mystere

Eye Colour Duet in Mystere

Mystere swatches

Mystere is a very sultry fall eyeshadow duo. You look at a medium taupe-brown, and a navy-sapphire blue, and you think it’s all very unassuming. I think it’s very sexy, smoky, and vintage screen siren-y! Which is pretty much what the entire Cinema Noir Collection encompasses, in a nutshell. I have many Laura Mercier eyeshadows, and this duo is up to par with the LM shadow quality I’ve become accustomed to.

Nail Lacquer in Cocoa Suede

Cocoa Suede swatches

How CRAZY pretty is this cocoa nail polish? I have a ton of browns in my collection, but nothing this, dare I say…’sexy’ of a brown. It’s not drab, it’s not vampy looking, and it doesn’t scream old-lady. At least in my humble opinion! It’s a little early to pull this out, but for fall, this will be one I am all about. While I don’t know about the durability of the polish, I do know the coverage was excellent in two coats, and it had a nice flow. Two very important things!

There are other pieces in the Cinema Noir Collection, make sure to check them out here.
