Laura Mercier cosmetics is back on the makeup radar screen, and that's good news for the line's devoted customers, so take note.
Starting today and running through Saturday, the Mercier counter at Nordstrom at the Roseville Galleria will host Barbie Martin (at left), a national makeup artist and a specialist with the Mercier line for the past five years.
Because she's based in Los Angeles, Martin obviously mixes and mingles and does makeup for celebrities, including the charity event "Women in Rock." She's also a familiar face at awards shows and in fashion magazines.
Martin, along with a team of artists from Laura Mercier, will oversee in-store makeovers during the four-day event, which is from 11 a.m. - Yipes! That's right about now - to 6 p.m. each day. A highlight wil be the launch of the holiday collection and the Starstruck eye pallette. To book an appointment: (916) 780-7300, ext. 1417.
FYI: I have my personal favorites within the line. If you've never tried it, Mercier's Secret Camouflage concealer is one of the best on the cosmetic shelf. It's part of the Flawless Face collection.
And, for that elusive bath some of us dream of, the Creme Brulee Honey Bath is to die for. Fifteen minutes - that's all I ask.
