That Laura Mercier palette looks amazing! I don’t know if I can bring myself to buy it because I’d have little use for that darkest shade. I’ll have to think about it…

I would love that Laura Mercier face quad as eyeshadows!!! I’ve never been a fan of the Bobbi Brown Shimmerbricks but, seriously – having 3 such different “bricks” in one palette….I’m thinking those who love the left side would find the right side difficult to wear and vice versa.

Now this is what I was waiting for! ? The Shimmer Brick palette seems like a great value, but I am not so sure about that yellow gold. And as much as I love my Telluride and Sunset Glow, BB’s formula is not my favorite. Definitely liking the looks of the LM palette and I don’t own any of those yet so I have a feeling I will cave. I wish the Stila palette was powder formula but I’m sure their will be many, many others!

Becca also just posted their first holiday palette sneak peek on IG (Blushed by Light)- this is definitely going to be the year is the cheek for me!

Your pic def looks as if you have the bone structure to wear them beautifully. I got the yellow gold at a CCO, and usually forget I have it. Def prefer the other two. The LM is gorgeous.

Julia, to me the Stila palette felt like powder. It was a very velvety powder so I was a bit surprised when someone here said it was cream. I swatched it yesterday and it swatched like the Laura Mercier palette.

When I saw this post I thought of you immediately! Hahahah! Something for Julia!
I’ve been resisting the Devotion Highlighter from Laura Mercier, but now that I see it again, it’s gonna be tough! I wouldn’t use the other colors, so for me this is an easy pass. Same for the other two.

I swatched the Stila Star Light Star Bright one yesterday at the Sephora appreciation event. Transcendence is pink w/ sheer white base, Kitten is the most shimmery, and Bronze is the prettiest. It feels like a cream based highlighter, and it feels very smooth to the touch, but I had to rub several times to get enough pigment. IMO, itโ€™s ok, not great. I feel like the powder highlighters from Anastasia, Lorac, Colour Pop are just as smooth but more pigmented, but it’s a cream option

Oh that Laura Mercier palette is beautiful. I was this close to buying seduction by itself. Glad I didn’t, cuz this seems like a great deal, and I would love having 4 different colours to play with. I finally returned that awful UD Moondust palette, so now I have a credit. I think this would be a great substitution!

Omg these palettes! I’ve been drooling over them since I saw them on Instagram. They’re all beautiful but the Laura Mercier one is absolutely stunning. I’ve had my eye on her illuminators for a while so I’m super excited about this palette. The Bobbi and Stila palettes looks pretty tempting too but I’ve gone highlighter crazy this year so I’m gonna try to resist. But this holiday season is making it hard already lol

Wow so much eye candy! I definitely don’t need anymore highlighters. But loving the Laura Mercier and Bobbi Brown palette sets. Hard to resist buying at least one, lol.

Hi Christine!

Long time reader have started really enjoying makeup in a huge way more recently and have been checking your site a lot more regularly and appreciating the hard work you do!

I was just wondering if you were able to recommend a cool toned eyeshadow palette (more neutral shades/smokey…nothing too crazy) with a mix of matte and shimmer?


Hey Cat,

There aren’t really a lot of truly cool-toned palette ๐Ÿ™ Tartelette in Bloom is probably the closest, but it’s mostly matte. Something darker and smokier, Viseart Cool Mattes!

Sorry for taking FOREVER to reply to this!

Going gaga for that Laura Mercier quad! That just looks like perfection to me, but I may *possibly* be drowning in highlighters at this point! ?

Ahhh, everything about that LM palette is stunning! I would love to see Christine’s review before buying, but am afraid if I wait it’ll be gone. Decisions, decisions…oh, WTH. 4X the points at Sephora makes it worth it ๐Ÿ˜‰

I think my wallet is safe. Even though the sets look really good there are colours I’d never use in all of them. The Stila one is the only one I might consider.

I still want the Laura Mercier palette even though I just bought a full size of indiscrecretion earlier this summer. I also want the Bobbi brown palette. Hmmm. Maybe I will reward myself for doing well
