Laura Mercier Petite Eye Palettes

Laura Mercier, Club Couture, promoLaura Mercier’s holiday offering this year is… complicated to say the least. The holiday collection (Club Couture) itself is small: it features two “foiled” eyeshadows in gold and silver and three lip products (two lipsticks, one gloss).

Then there are a plethora of palettes and sets (and certain items exclusive to particular retailers). The items you’ll find everywhere are:

  • The Colour Wardrobe (a double-decker palette for eyes, lips, and cheeks), $98
  • Petite Eye Palettes in warm and cool (four shades in a very slender case), $28 each
  • Baked Eye Colour Palette (five baked shades), $48
  • Mini Lip Glace set (five mini glosses), $48

There is also a mini brush set ($45), a double-ended brush set ($85), and various bath and body gift sets. I’ve never owned any of Laura’s bath and body stuff, but it all smells so delicious you might be tempted to eat it.

The colors are all shades from Laura’s permanent line.

I’m personally a big fan of Laura’s eyeshadows. The color payoff is right for me, and I love the texture and finish (her shadows are predominantly satins and mattes; you generally don’t see very frosty or shimmery shadows from her).

    >Ooh, those are both gorgeous. Especially African Violet – wow!

  • Proximity says:

    >Thanks for doing a good job of capturing the interesting, beautiful complexity that is Twilight Grey. I'm always suggesting it to people. I've had it for years, and it's my favorite Gray. Morning Dew is also an everyday staple of my makeup collection. I'd buy the Petite Cool Eye Palette in a moment, if I didn't already have those two shades!

  • Eileen says:

    >The petite palettes are gorgeous, but like Proximity, I already own several of the colors so I wouldn't be interested in purchasing them for myself. They would, however, make lovely gifts for anyone who is unfamiliar with the fine quality of LM eye shadows. They'd also be especially nice for anyone who is just learning how to put together an eyeshadow wardrobe. And, at $28, it's a gift that won't break the bank :-)

  • KateM says:

    >Ooh, love them both! Will you be swatching the other LM stuff… please!!

  • Joey says:

    >Oh wow, I love the look of that Cool palette…Twilight Grey is lovely!

  • Crystal.S says:

    >Great swatches! The petite cool eye palette looks lovely!

  • All The Pretty Things says:

    >I'm loving the Warm Petite Palette – I have her Painter's Palette, and while wonderfully textured, the colors are a bit muddy on me. This looks like a much, much better fit!

  • Tiffany says:

    >Ooooh. Good to know these are all permanent shades. Twilight Grey looks especially beautiful.

  • Jellyminx says:

    >I really want that Cool palette, it's so pretty. *fingers crossed* I can get them over here :)

    >i really like the swatches of these. i think the cool one is more me even though i know i have a ton of similar colours. yup, that's just the life of a mu addict. i have no luggage space for any more mu addition for my next move… so i will stop thinking about this for the time being.

    thank you so much for the swatches as always!
