Laura Mercier's Portable Beauty Collection for Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale

Here's a look at the portable beauty collection by Laura Mercier, which is currently exclusive to Nordstrom ($65). It contains the following products:
  • Eye Colour Duo: Sparkling Guava / Kir Royal
  • Cheek Colour Duo: Rose Petal / Mauve
  • Double-Ended Lip Glace: Glimmer / Violet
  • Long Lash Mascara: Black
  • Double-Ended All Over Eye Colour and Smudge Brush
  • Metallic navy blue zippered cosmetic bag
Overall I really like this little set, especially the blush and eye shadow. The colors, in my opinion, are universally flattering. The lip glosses seem to be the same formula as Laura Mercier's full-size lip glaces, with the same signature scent. The Violet shade appears to be more pigmented in the tube and in the swatches than it does on the lips--it is actually quite sheer, which could be disappointing, depending on your preference. I haven't used Laura Mercier's mascara or brushes before, so look forward to trying these. The  faux-leather cosmetic bag is cute and is small enough to throw in your handbag.  The vertical zipper in the front opens up to a separate storage space.
