Product Review: Laura Mercier ‘Lingerie’ Eye & Cheek Palette

This thing came right on time. I’ve booked about half a dozen bridal consultations for Spring and Summer weddings. And with the exception of one bride, everyone seems to want the same thing: neutral and glowing with just a hint of color.

So I was poking around Naimies (on the worst possible day. There was some class going on and the store was PACKED with eager students who wanted to snap up every bit of makeup they could get their hands on…) and came across this little gem:

It’s not marketed as a ‘bridal’ palette, but it will certainly work as one. It contains the right combination of mattes and shimmers, to give any bride an overall ‘glow.’ It’ll work on a wide range of skin tones and make a bride look ‘effortless’ on her big day.

I tested it before plunking down $$ for this baby, and all of the eyeshadows are SO soft! They’re all really pigmented, and the blushes are warm and buildable. I noticed that the peach blush has a hint of shimmer, but it’s very subtle.

Swatches…

Eyeshadows
Fresh Peach Blush
Rose Desire Blush
I think it’s very nice to have all of these ‘wearable’ colors in one palette. I’m also really impressed with the quality… every pan is silky and highly blendable. Not too shabby for $60. I’d say it’s worth every penny.
You can get the Laura Mercier Eyes and Cheek Palette from Nordstrom.
