I Can’t Imagine Falling Out of Love with Laura Mercier’s New Baked Eye Colour Palette

Published in: Makeup, Product Reviews

Are they macarons, or are they eyeshadows? Well, that depends. The baked beauties in Laura Mercier’s new Baked Eye Colour Palette ($48) just might be a bit of both.



Like macarons, they make me smile. :) All five of the shimmery shadows in brown, bronze, beige, pink and purple deposit very little fallout on my cheeks, and I love the glowing, wide-awake look their punchy pigments bestow upon my eyes.

The palette, a holiday release, also comes with a time-saving surprise — a dual-tipped brush with a flat eyeshadow brush on one end and a dense, pointed cream shadow brush on the other. I’ve tried the shades both wet and dry with the flat shadow brush and got some fast, fresh looks, and because the shadows adhere to my lids so well, I didn’t have to spend any extra time cleaning up fallout on my cheeks.

    Gosh you wouldn’t even need to apply these wet, they look gorgeous dry. But I guess they do have that oomph when applied wet. This palette is amazing !

    I love the brown and copper shades in this! Speaking of macaroons, should I go get some? I bought eggnog, maybe that’s enough for me? It IS the holidays after all, so do I get a pass? :P

  9. Kelly says:

    These colors are gorgeous. To apply them wet did you just dampen your brush? Did it ruin or change the eyeshadow in the pan when used wet?
