Most Amazing Product E.V.E.R!!

Hello Ladies!! 

It's been a while, yes? I've had so much going on with my life recently but I wanted to share a fabulous product find! About 2 weeks ago I was diagnosed with Celiac's disease.  I've been off of gluten for 2 weeks now and I have never felt better.  I was experiencing daily headaches, major skin issues, some stomach issues and I'm happy to report that all of the above is much better. 

However, discovering this intolerance to gluten has made me not only rethink my meals but also my make-up and cleansers!! I have always used Mary Kay and have been eh, somewhat happy with her products.  The only negative I've experienced is needing to retouch at the end of the day or cake on the mineral foundation. I use mineral because it's better for your skin as it allows your skin to breathe. After being diagnosed with Celiac I knew I wanted to switch to a gluten free brand. I'd had bad break outs recently.  My dad actually asked me if he and my mom needed to pay for me to visit a dermatologist and said "I've never seen you skin look bad, let a lone THIS bad, baby!!" Ya, that was not one of my happier moments. Well, I no longer need to retouch or cake on the make up because I found the BEST brand ever and it's gluten FREE!  Allow me to introduce you to...

Laura Mercier's products are seriously, amazing.  I've been using her Liquid Mineral Primer, and her mineral foundation for a week now and have never seen my skin look more flawless.  It provides awesome coverage with out using the entire supply in one sitting and it stays on.  I forgot to wash my face last night and I'm not kidding, I could go to work today wearing last nights make up and not need to retouch.  I'm not going to do that though, just trying to make my point.  It doesn't look like you're wearing much make up though. It's just perfect. 

I'm going to go back next week and purchase more products from her line. I did buy the flatback eye liner which I am also loving! Seriously, girls, I don't do product reviews unless I really love something.  Even then, I don't do them often.  If you're looking for a new brand because yours is just ok, look at Laura Mercier. You won't be disappointed. 

*** This product review is my opinion and my opinion only. I was not paid or promoted with Laura Mercier products to do this review. I did this review because I truly am pleased with the products I purchased. 


  1. Where can you get this product!??
    I need a fantastically AMAZING skin/makeup product!

  2. So glad you are feeling better!!
    PS: Isn't it a total bummer when your DAD points out something that's not so great about you =/ BUT on the other hand at least we have fathers that are honest and want the best for us =)

  3. Aw that's a bummer my friend is gluten intolerent too but she's managing just fine. I didn't know makeup was affected and that there could be gluten in makeup... you learn something everyday! :) I've heard that makeup is awesome. I may give it a try. Glad it's working well for you. Thank you!

    Hope plans are coming along well! I'd love to hear some updates! We have almost 3 months!!! So exciting!

  4. I have used Laura Mercier before and I love it. I will have to look into the products some more!

  5. I have really sensitive skin and have problems using different kinds of makeup...Laura Mercier is one of the few that actually don't irritate my skin! Her tinted moisturizer is absolutely amazing...I actually just ran out a few days ago, so I'm going to have to run to Sephora this weekend!! So glad you like it (by the way had no idea makeup could be gluten free!)

  6. Glad you are feeling better. I have recently switched to all natural/gluten free products as well. Key's Island Prescription is also a great brand if you're ever looking for something new!
