Best Eyeshadows and Cheek Palettes By Laura Mercier
The color and texture of the eyeshadow always set the overall look for face makeup: perhaps that’s because people usually look at the eyes first. On one extreme is the nude blend that gives off a more natural look and on the other end is the loud, attention-grabbing blend of colors and everything else in between. Hey, you don’t have to worry though cos no matter where you fall on the spectrum, Laura Mercier’s eyeshadow and cheek Palettes’ got you covered, literally. Let’s dive right in;

Laura Mercier Hidden Gems Eyeshadow Palette
The Laura Mercier Hidden Gems Eyeshadow Palette is a limited edition 12-pan palette. There are only two mattes in the palette, while the rest (metallic) has a slightly drier, dustier consistency across the board. Pigmentation is from semi-opaque to opaque and some of the colors are an array of jewel-toned hues. The 12 shades come in Rose Quartz, Amber Spark, Tiger’S Eye, Ruby Star, Plum Frost, Matte Black, Bone, Spirit, Polished Brass, Golden Topaz, Turquoise Blaze, Black Frost.
The Laura Mercier Hidden Gems Eyeshadow takes a step away from the typical Laura Mercier palette as it plays with texture and color, but that means that it offers more variety for a bolder and sparkler look. To get the best out of the metallic and avoid fallout during application, you can use a dampened brush. We wouldn’t recommend it for beginners though, experienced makeup artists will have more fun playing with this hidden gem.
