End fumbling around round your purse looking for makeup hiding at the bottom with the new Custom Artist Portfolio ($98) from Laura Mercier, available exclusively March through April 2012. With room for foundation, lip, eye and cheek color, plus brushes, the portfolio can be customized to hold all your favorite beauty essentials, keeping them fingertip ready.
The Custom Artist Portfolio features a rigid outer shell case wrapped in metallic, pewter, snakeskin embossed material. Four removable mesh cosmetic bags can keep all of your individual products safely organized. A pocket brush page holds all the necessary tools, while refillable 3-well and 6-well Custom Compacts are ready for the filling of your favorite eye, cheek and lip color pans. Be your own makeup artist and create the palette that works for you.
To fill the portfolio, Laura has created a limited edition line of color cosmetics called the Portfolio Animation collection. It includes:
Sheer Crème Colour for face and check ($22), available in limited-edition shades of Bronze Veil, Pink Cheek Veil and Pearl Glow Veil
Lip Glaze ($20), available in limited-edition shades of Soft Pink, Plum and Lotus Bloom
Second Skin Cheek Colour ($24), available in five new shades including Sweet Mandarin, Honey Mocha, Heather Pink, Peach Whisper and Soft Iris.
Eye Colour ($22), available in three new limited-edition shades, Merlot Sateen, Golden Crème Luster and Seashell Pink Sateen
All of these color items can be popped out of their existing mini compacts and snapped into the 3- and 6-well compacts included with the portfolio.
