Merle Norman for Summer Beauty

Hi ya Gorgeous!
Happy Monday! Woo hoo! The countdown to school being out is officially less than two weeks!
Can you say excited? Not necessarily because I'm about to hear "I'm bored" a dozen times a day, but because there will be no heinous hundred plus mile commute per day! Hallelujah!

Since summer vacation is almost here, it's time for a "go to" makeup palette and I'm loving this sample I received from Merle Norman.

I have been playing with these products for over a week now and have worn them almost every day. I can honestly say the colors have a good pigment load, where well all day with very little fading - though, I do use an eyeshadow primer. Smashbox 24 hour eyeshadow primer to be exact.

The ocean blue eyeliner is my favorite! The weird "blur" serum is my least favorite from the skincare samples I received. Although, I must say, I am love love lovin' the super thick and rich night cream!

The mascara definitely requires a remover. Soap and water is not enough to get your lashes clean so having a makeup remover for eyes or a facial makeup removing wipe is going to be needed.

Over all, if you have the opportunity, visit your local Merle Norman studio. See, that's the catch. All Merle Norman studios are independently owned and operated - so that's why I don't have any prices to post.  It could vary from one location to another and from one state to another!

Most Merle Normans will do a complimentary makeover with the products to introduce you to the brand, colors and products. It's worth giving it a try!  Visit the Merle Norman website to find a location near you!

I did a "first impressions" video on Facebook when the products first arrived - you can check it out here with this link.

If you are part of the Facebook page for Makeup University, which gets daily updates - you are a part of it, aren't you? If not, get on board over there using this link!  

...and...have you seen this Facebook Live in a GRWM for the royal wedding? Good times!
I usually do a live chat in the late morning - join me!
