Laura Mercier Art of Colour Eye & Cheek Palette

Laura Mercier Art of Colour Eye & Cheek Palette ($79.00 for 0.83 oz.) includes eight eyeshadows, one blush, and a full-sized mascara and is a Nordstrom Anniversary Exclusive. It’s a disappointing palette; I think it looks and swatches better than it applies, and it’s a palette that should be used with an eyeshadow primer to minimize some of the issues that I experienced (like adhesion and longevity). Some of the eyeshadows ran a little drier, one was quite firm and difficult to use altogether, while the blush was horrendous. I would have also preferred to see them ditch the mascara and drop the price.

Giorgio Armani No. 11 Fluid Sheer

Giorgio Armani No. 11 Fluid Sheer ($62.00 for 1.0 fl. oz.) is a light, subdued peachy-brown with warm undertones and fine gold micro-shimmer. It had sheer coverage, as described, that spreads and diffuses well on the skin. This is going to be better for fairer skin tones to be used alone as a highlighter or light blush/bronzer, while medium skin tones may find it works better for adding a slight warmth and dewiness all-over when mixed with base products (it doesn’t show up on me other than as a subtle, golden sheen when used on cheek bones). Alone, it wore for eight and a half hours before fading. MAC Margin (P, $21.00) is more shimmery, darker, more pigmented. MAC Summer Opal (LE, $26.00) is more shimmery. Marc Jacobs Beauty Shameless (220) (P, $30.00) is less shimmery, darker. Marc Jacobs Beauty Shameless (220) (P, $30.00) is less shimmery, darker.

MAC Stereo Rose (2014) (LE, $30.00) is more shimmery, lighter. Becca Fig/Opal (P, $27.00) is more shimmery. Becca Rose Gold (P, $38.00) is more shimmery, more pigmented.
