Laura Mercier Grab Bags: A $300+ Value for Only $65!

July 9, 2009

I promise that come tomorrow you’ll be seeing many many product reviews but as of today there are just so many new releases and great deals that I need to tell you about, the most exciting of which is this Laura Mercier Employee Friends & Family Event Grab Bag thing that Nicole turned me onto.

The grab bags are available in the following three varieties:

Light & Fresh Grab Bag ($65)
Ideal for fair skin tones, Light & Fresh includes the following full-size items:

  • Margaux Eye Colour
  • Eye Book
  • Midnight Caviar Eye Liner
  • Linen Eye Basics
  • Pink Diamond Lip Glace
  • Sterling Nail Lacquer
  • Undercover #1
  • Opera Cheek Colour
  • Mini Translucent Loose Setting Powder
  • Chocolate Truffle Creme Body Wash
  • Sugar Cookie Candle

Sunkissed Grab Bag ($65)
Ideal for medium skin tones, Sunkissed includes the following full-size items:

  • Sparkling Diamond Mineral Powder
  • Midnight Sun Eye Colour Trio
  • Mahogany Brown Eye Liner
  • Chestnut Caviar Eye Liner
  • Apricot Face Tint
  • Wheat Eye Basics
  • Sugar Plum Lip Colour – Stickgloss
  • Persimmon Lip Plumper
  • 24 Karat Nail Lacquer
  • Almond Coconut Milk Candle
  • Undercover #3
  • Black Granite Long Wear Eye Pencil

Dramatic Grab Bag ($65)
Ideal for deep skin tones, Dramatic includes the following full-size items:

  • Mauve Sunset Eye Colour Trio
  • Black Ebony Eye Liner
  • Titanium Meallic Creme Eye Colour
  • Glamour Faux Eye Lashes
  • Bisque Eye Basics
  • Azalea Cheek Colour
  • Violet Lip Glace
  • Avant Garde Nail Lacquer
  • Nuit Enchantees Eau de Parfum
  • Chocolate Truffle Souffle Body Creme

My dilemma is that each set contains 2-4 items that I know I’d love to try, but I really have zero interest in the rest. I guess logically speaking, even purchasing those 2-4 items would cost me around $65, if not more, so I’m better off getting the set and then just giving away what I know won’t work for me, but I definitely feel like this is one of those moments when I’m buying something I never would’ve purchased otherwise, just because it’s a good deal, and for me that’s a big no-no. Temptation is so hard to resist!

Which set would you go with? I love the eye and lip colors from the last set, the apricot blush from the second set and the lips and eyes from the first. If only we could mix and match.

So as a reward to those of you who bother to check after the jump (and take the time to read my posts), I’ve got a little surprise for you! 🙂 You may have noticed that the photo above looks a little off ~ I was having a little too much fun playing on Photobucket! So here’s what my graphic looked like after I’d added just the text:
