P100P #005 - Laura Mercier Matte Bronze Light

The next item to be cleared in Project 100 Pan was a very disappointing product by Laura Mercier.  Usually an outstanding brand with exceptional products, but this one failed to please.  I decided this product was not fit for a blog sale, and has been discarded.

This product is exactly what it's name suggests, a light coloured matte bronzer, no shimmer.  When I first purchased it about a year ago I loved it.  Unfortunately after just a month the product developed a film on it.  It seemed like I needed to scratch the surface to get some colour payoff on my brush. 

I understand that you can have a build up of oil on powder products left by dirty brushes, however I am fastidiously clean with my brushes, and discount this as the cause.  The product seemed cakey, and not worth saving.

This experience does not damage the Laura Mercier reputation in my mind at all.  One of my all time favourite products comes from the LM line, and it is the Shimmer Bloc in Mosaic.  A divine glowy highlighter which surpasses Dior's Amber Diamond and Nars Albatross.  Definitely worth a look!

You're doing pretty good with your P100P! At this rate you'll have the project over in less than a month, nice going.

Lol throwing out/selling stuff counts too? I thought you had to literally hit "pan" :-)
