If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen my haul of Nordstrom Anniversary Sale beauty exclusives, which I photographed for the most part, but I still have a whole palette to swatch and then almost all of it still to test, so it’s going to be a bit. That leads me to: sneak peeks! The first I have ready to share with you is Laura Mercier Art of Colour Eye & Cheek Palette ($79.00), which includes eight eyeshadows and one blush, plus a mascara. I wish they had skipped the mascara and gone with a lower price.

It seems like the beauty bloggers are going towards Instagram. This one that shows a lot of Japanese makeup just close her account completely and kept her Instagram account. I like seeing a full article.

OMG, that African Violet Shade is stunning and unique – must have it !! So glad it’s sold as single because I don’t need the entire palette. And Pink Haze is so pretty, will be looking for your dupes. Also like Gunmetal

Not sure about the quality of the blush and a couple of the shadows, but I’m interested in this!
I really liked the look of African Violet in the artist palette (which I never got) so it’s a definite plus to have it here.

This is quite pretty! I’m glad to see they included some other colors with the browns. African Violet is such a great shade, I’m very happy to see it in this collection. The blush is gorgeous.

Oooh no, I didn’t know that. Thank you! Idk if I’ll get it though.. I was looking through the dupes & I have Bordello, but I need to dig it out & see how close it actually is.. I remember it being very glittery/fallout-y, & not quite as ‘duochrome-looking’ as African Violet. I love that gold tone.
Idk about you, but I have a habit of going after the same colors/shades over & over again lol.. I’d be screwed w/out Temptalia! Thanks again! 🙂

I really could have done without the blush as well. Oh well. Maybe this is the year that I get an artists palette from her. I really want to try her eyeshadows

Thank you for putting these sneak peaks up! I enjoy seeing what the different brands will be offering this fall. With this one, I am loving the eyeshadows, the blush looks like it may be finicky though, going by the swatches, but looks great on your cheeks. Not sure what to make of it. Excited to hear more in the future!

The palette colors do strike my fancy, but I doubt I’ll spring for it at this price.

I wonder how much of a difference leaving off the extraneous mascara would have made?

Jill Avatar

The blush is beautiful on you. Are any of the eyeshadow shades new or exclusive to this palette? I recognize most of the names. And the design of it is very familiar.
In years past, I remember many of the Nord Anniv Beauty Exclusive sets, (from BB and LM, for example), contained at least one new shade or product from the upcoming fall campaign, along with a few best selling shades or products. It made for a nice “mini preview” of the upcoming season. The exclusives in last year’s and this year’s catalogs are definitely lacking that, and as a result, do not interest me at all! I mean, come on Bobbi Brown. Another nude shadow palette ? (#200 I think) Yawwwwnnn!

Now this is my kind of palette!! I would live to give this a try. Now I have 2 items on my wish list based on your posts. Thank you for bringing us the latest and greatest, as always!’

Lara Avatar

all colors look nice buff I personally would never buy palette w blush and eyeshadows together bc the powder always get all over each other, plus this isn’t really space saving in my opinion
