Another set I bought in London is Bobbi Brown’s Pretty Powerful Pink & Platinum Collection. This set comes with a nice silver makeup bag which you can see in a photo below. Side note: Every time I pass near a place where they sell cosmetic bags I ask myself who actually buys them as you get them as a gift with your purchase. It retails for 50£ (63€/80$) but the day I bought it there was a 10% off- promotion going on so I got it a little bit cheaper.

Today I'm reviewing the primer and the palette of the Laura Mercier Collection.
Actually, I never used a foundation primer because I didn’t see the need for it. To date I never had the requirement that my make-up should stay the whole day. I tried it yesterday and applied this primer under my foundation and after removing it in the evening, after 10 hours weartime, there was a little bit more left in the cotton pad than when I didn’t used it. But I’m not sure if this made a huge difference. The primer feels light on the skin, a little bit like a moisturizer. I wonder how the oil-free version would feel because this one is so lightly. I waited some minutes to let it dry before I applied my foundation. The surface is a little bit smoother than when I don’t use one and with it the foundation applied a little bit easier. But these are such small differences that it is not encouraging me to repurchase it.

During my holidays in London I did some beauty shopping. One of my purchases is this set of make-up products from Laura Mercier, and as the sales associate said, exclusively available for the department store John Lewis. I paid 50£ (63€/80$) for it.
It comes in a carton packaging with a photo of all the items, which I threw away right after purchasing to reduce my baggage. Plus there is an advice card which suggets a look you can create with the products.
