My friends often laugh at the fact that if any of them needs something in a pinch – I probably have it in my handbag. Want a safety pin? – I’ve got it. Need a band-aid? Check. Having a nail emergency and need clear nail polish? I’ve got you covered. In addition to these various sundries, I also carry a bag of assorted lip products – balms, stains, glosses, traditional lippies. I’ve got them all. The only thing that I don’t carry regularly is actual makeup to touch-up my face throughout the day. For some reason the idea of carrying around a makeup bag chock full of concealer, BB cream, tinted moisturizer, powder and brushes is the straw that broke the proverbial camel’s back – or potentially breaks my handbag’s strap.
Fortunately, Laura Mercier has come up with the perfect solution. The Flawless Face Book (retail price: $59) is a travel-sized compact book that has all the essentials needed to create (and maintain) a flawless face on the go. It includes Laura Mercier’s Tinted Moisturizer Crème Compact SPF 20, the iconic Secret Concealer and Secret Camouflage, a mini Secret Camouflage Brush and a Mineral Pressed Powder. The portable palette is placed in a chic compact perfectly-sized for slipping into a clutch. It’s love!
