I did it! Yes, I finished the entire Laura Mercier Artist Palette. I believe this palette was originally launched in 2013. It has, however, been relaunched at Sephora and subsequent versions of it were also released. I highly recommend picking this palette up. It can give you great insight as to which shades are worth the splurge and which are a huge bore.
I am super picky about my eyeshadow. I really only indulge in three brands: NARS, Laura Mercier, and Burberry. Laura makes the creamiest shades that are so easy to blend – it’s basically eyeshadow for dummies. I love that they can create a look that’s impactful, but you never feel as though you’re trying too hard. Here are some of the full-sized shades that I chose to invest in…
Stellar – (Sateen) A pale, champagne that creates the perfect sheen. I use this as an all-over wash of color.
Bamboo – (Luster) You guessed it! A satiny, taupe shade. The “blah” color we all love.
Sandstone – (Sateen) Shimmering, pale pink.
Twilight Grey – (Matte) One of those shades that when you see it in the pan, you think “is this blue, grey or purple?” Perfect as a crease or liner color.
Fresco – (Matte) A beige-y brown. One of my favorite crease colors of all time!
Rosewood – (Sateen) A stunning bronze.
Sparkling Dew – Another shimmering, pale pink (this is lighter than ‘Sandstone’.)
Sesame – (Matte) This is a slightly more beige version of a buttercream.
Burnished – (Sateen) Golden beige brown.
