Recently, I had the opportunity to check out a few items from Merle Norman’s new Spring 2014 makeup line. We all know about Merle Norman and their quality products, but I have to admit – it had been a while since I’d tried anything from the line. For some reason, Merle Norman just never seems to be one of the brands that I seek out.
This, my friends, has to change. First up is the Eyecolor Trio in Wistful. Wistful has three great, neutral shades that are perfect for everyday wear. Make My Daisy, which is a soft ivory, Pretty Girl, which is a beautiful shimmery taupe, and Violet Femme, which is a beautiful dusty purple. These eye shadows are so creamy and they blend beautifully. Perfect for a daytime look or for a day into night look as well. Because, really, who doesn’t want makeup that can do double duty. LOVE!!
Of course, what’s a great eyeshadow palette without quality eyeliner? The Age Defying Eyeliner is a must have addition to your makeup bag. Glides on gently and smudges only how you want it to. This eyeliner has a smudging tool on one end that pulls out to reveal a sharpener. Waterproof, and non irritating, too. This is nearly identical to one of the big brand beauty fave lines, but at a friendlier price tag.
Moving on to the lips, there are two great product options – Lip Polish and Creamy Lip Color.
Lip Polish is a fab lip gloss. It’s a little sticky going on, but then something amazing happens. The stickiness goes away almost instantly, and leaves a great high shine finish. Confection, a light pink shade, leaves just a hint of color with a bit of iridescence.
Merle Norman’s Creamy Lip Color is an opaque lipstick that packs a punch of color. Late Bloomer is a vivid coraly pink shade. It’s really a pretty shade for everyday wear.
All in all, I am IN LOVE with these new items from Merle Norman. These items are available at Merle Norman Color Studios all over.

The lip polish sounds fabulous, especially since the stickiness disappears!
Jenn @TheRebelChick says
This reminds me, I really need to get some new make up! I don’t think I have bought any since last year!
Amber Edwards says
Oh I love those colors of the eye shadow! They would match so many of my outfits!
That lipstick is such a pretty color! Perfect for spring and summer.

I loved Merle Norman! The only store we had shut down in our city though, makes me sad!
Oh I love makeup so much! These look like great products!
Kelsey Apley says

I have never tried Merle Norman cosmetics. But I must say that I am lovin’ what you have shown here. Especially that lip gloss!
Jen Temcio @dapperhouse says
This is not a brand that I think about buying either, but I would love to try that shade of lipstick and I LOVE the imprint of their logo in the stick! Cool.
I love that purple colored eye shadow!! So pretty!
Mama to 5 BLessings says
LOVE this brand, this is the 1st brand I ever wore. When I was a teenager my mom took me to a Merle Norman consultant to teach me how to apply and what to do.
Amy Desrosiers says
I LOVE makeup so this collection looks awesome! I love new brands, and never heard of this one so I’m happy to be acquainted!
Wow, I have never heard of Merle Norman, but these sound and look fabulous. Love the color pallets. Thanks for sharing.
Ann Bacciaglia says
The collection looks very nice. I am fascinated that the lip polish goes on sticky and then the stickiness disappears. That is so cool.
valmg @ Mom Knows It All says
I love eye liner with a smudging end! So many companies don’t have that! I haven’t tried this but will be on the lookout for it!
Christine Cavazos says
I am a sucker for shimmer eye shadow!
Amanda West says
Lip polish is always a favorite of mine. I love the color.
Brett Martin says
What a beautiful pallet! I love these colors together.
Thanks for the review of this product, I would love the lip shine, since I feel like it wouldn’t get everywhere since the stick disappears. Thanks.
I love that liner. I need a new eye liner
Nancy @ Whispered Inspirations says
Those are such pretty colors, I love the palette!
Oh I love that eyeliner!! the shadows look like great colors too!
The Late Bloomer lip gloss looks great. Perfect small eyeshadow palette to create natural looks and fit perfectly into a purse.
That lipgloss and that shadow trio look amazing! That’s a great purple.
Isn’t it funny? I haven’t been to their store in a long time. I remember my friends and I going there for “makeovers” when we first started wearing makeup. And I’ll never forget their lipstick samples that came in a blister pack. I’d try to make mine last forever!
I definitely want to check them out again!
Greta Brinkley says
I drive by one of the stores every day, and never even thought to go in! They have great stuff, though!
Toria Mason says
Looks like great colors!
Julie Wood says
What a pretty color of lipstick. Merle Norman makes such good makeup and the colors will really look nice on my face. And the eyeshadow colors are great.
