Glam Mom Gift Guide – Makeup

Hi Guys !

These are my top picks for the glam mom – for Mom’s Day 


Editorial Palette

Intense Clays

“An eye colour palette with 6 highly pigmented clay-textured eye colours in matte and metallic finishes. Palette also includes a custom designed setting powder to prolong wear.”

Why do I love it?

Intense colour payoff. The metallic shades are out of this world beautiful. The setting powder is so unique and Hey It’s Laura Mercier. 

She can do No wrong. 

Shiseido UV Lip Color Splash Broad Spectrum SPF 30

“With SHISEIDO’s Clear Defense Technology, defending your lips against UV damage takes just a clear wash of fresh, transparent color. The UV Lip Color Splash has a comfortable, makeup-like texture, and no uncomfortable fragrance or taste. Easy to use, wear and reapply. Fits to the lips with a gentle, comfortable application and allows natural movement. Soothes chapped or rough lips and protects against dryness.”


• With its high transparency, the product shows clear color and shine.

• When under light, the glow becomes brighter, and creates fresher looking lips that match outdoor activity.

• Fits gently over the lips with a dewy and light texture.

Why do I love them?

They Have an editorial feel and they protect your lips from the sun

Glossy Lips ARE in – I am so done with matte lips – Like a year ago.



Laura Mercier Flawless Fusion Ultra-Longwear Concealer

?A medium to full coverage, weightless concealer that perfects, hydrates and blurs, with 12 hours of crease-resistant wear.”

Coverage That Won’t Crease

Medium to full coverage flexes with skin to seamlessly conceal under eye darkness and facial imperfections. All-day hydration creates a crease-resistant, natural finish.

Weightless Feel with Blurring Effect

Incredibly lightweight formula feels undetectable on skin, while the Blurring Powder Blend diffuses light to smooth the look of fine lines and create a soft-focus effect.

12 Hours of High-Performance Wear

Powered by Skin Fusion Technology, longwearing flexible polymers fuse to skin for 12 hours of wear that’s transfer, sweat, humidity, and water-resistant.

Oil Free. Available in 12 shades, from fair to deep.


Why do I love it?

I love the fact that its’ claims are the real thing. That, in the concealer world almost never happens. Move over shape tape. This blends like a dream and really diminishes the look of fine lines around the eyes. This can be applied everywhere for a bit of extra coverage too. I like it around the lips before lipstick.  It’s a perfect concealer. 


And lastly
In this Gift Guide
“A seductive ultra-matte lipstick that delivers intense single-stroke coverage and long-lasting, creamy comfort”

Extreme Colour. Extreme Matte. Extreme Control.

Modern matte lipstick so seductive in colour, touch and texture the sensation is irresistible. Mattifying powders and silky conditioners envelop your lips in the softness and comfort of velour. A collection of 24 vivid shades provide intense color with a dramatic matte finish. The sleek slimline design applies with precision artistry.

Extreme Colour

Intense pigment-rich colour delivers full-coverage intensity in a single stroke. Our highest pigmented lipstick.

Extreme Control

Slim precision bullet allows formula to grab and glide over lips, defining and filling in one seamless stroke. Built-in shaper customizes tip for precision lining and detailed filling. Ideal for creating edgy effects and everyday extremes. No liner needed.

Why do I love it? 
The packaging is perfect.  They do not dry the lips at all. The creaminess of the matte is what stands out. No dry lips. The formula is perfect and pigmented and lasts about 4hrs before needing to reapply.  I haven’t come across mattes this great in forever – and I encounter a lot of lip products. 
Over to You – What do You think? Have You tried any of these?
I think these are perfect for Mother’s Day Gifts and really – everyday!
Happy almost Mother’s Day
All Love

  1. Very nice blog Cat.Great ideas for Mother’s Day And my Mom Carol who is 75 now and is going to turn 76 on the 13th. She still looks beautiful and she still wears makeup. My Mom would also love the Shiseidi UV Lip Color Splash and also the Laura Mercie Concealer to help cover her scar. Years ago my Mom was diagnosed with skin cancer on her upper lip so this would be so nice as a part of her gift bag. I hope you have a Wonderful Mother’s Day Cat. xxoo
