The Laura Mercier Spring 2012 - Lingerie collection appeared on the AdoreBeauty site a few weeks ago. I instantly fell in love with the Eye & Cheek palette. I had to have it and of course it is limited edition, so I couldn't risk missing out!
The Eye & Cheek palette contains six eye shadow shades and two blush shades. It is such a perfect palette for travelling and really compact. Seriously it is not much bigger than an iPhone. It also has a fantastic size mirror in the lid.
The eye shadow shades in this palette are an excellent combination of satin, shimmery and matte. There is also a great combination of light and dark shades and few colours too. Each eye shadow is 1.6g and each blush is 3.3g.
The shadows and blushes are beautifully pigmented. The shadows are also nice and soft and easy to work with. It is great that this palette has different finishes. It makes it a complete palette to create many different looks from.
- Buff Pearl - champagne satin
- Tawny Apricot - dusty pink satin
- Rich Cocoa - matte dark brown
The blush shades are:
- Rose Desire - cool pink
- Fresh Peach - pinkish peach with slight shimmer
The eye shadow shades in the right column are:
- Pale Pink - matte white-pink
- African Violet - shimmery dark purple
- Black Plum - matte blackened purple
I have found the blushes last all day on my skin and look beautiful. The choice of colours is just excellent especially for spring. I use the Laura Mercier Eye Basics Primer underneath the shadows and they last all day.
Excuse my dodgy swatching below (I am hopeless at it). The left column is on the left, the blushes in the middle and the right column on the right.
I highly recommend this palette. It is a perfect combination of shades and finishes. The size makes it perfect for taking on the go. It currently retails for AU$60.00 on AdoreBeauty and is limited edition so don't wait too long!
