It’s probably not easy for Laura Mercier to be the Queen of the Flawless Face, her complexion products are consistently top notch! Her eyeshadows are just another way for your look to reign supreme—like this limited edition Baked Eye Colour Palette for holiday 2011. With five baked eyeshadows, each is long-wearing and can be used wet or dry. Since metallic eye looks so popular around this time of year, these shades are easily amped up with a wet brush to give a foiled effect.
Sienna — chocolate brown
Terracotta — warm copper
Ballet Pink — soft peachy-pink
Pink Petal — baby pink
Lilac — soft lavender
Also included — mini eye colour/creme eye detail brush

Each shade both wet and dry
Pair up any of the shades with the soft peachy-pink shade (Ballet Pink) in the middle, and you can achieve a few bold looks with some softer ones. Since the pastel shades will look better on darker skin tones, they’re better suited when used wet—or, show off their iridescence by applying them on top of a darker shade to make them really pop.
Bottom Line: Due to its versatility, this makes a great holiday gift. The shades blended easily and didn’t crease.
