Laura Mercier Baked Palette (LE)-Swatches

Hi ladies,

I picked up this little handy palette from the Laura Mercier counter.
It's a mineralize palette and it has 5 gorgeous and super easy to wear colours.
I believe 3 of them are on the regular mineralize collection and there are two new ones.
I just couldn't resist it!

Don't they all look pretty in the pans? The individual ones that are part of the regular collection are huge and I would never hit pan on those so I thought these little ones are a perfect excuse for the splurge.


I love this photo! Can you see little willow on the mirror. She always needs to see what mom is doing!


The 5 mineralize eyeshadows are super easy to wear.
I would totally wear these during the day and to go to work but I know some of you associate shimmer with night time. That's fine! Just think maybe of this palette as the trick that will take you from day to night.
You get a brown, a goldy/champagne, a creamy, an opal pink and a soft purple.
I had to turn on the flash. They were looking too flat otherwise and they are just divine with all that shimmer!

Swatches


It comes with a handy double ended brush. It's very good quality and you can use it to apply the e/ss on the lid and on the corners and you can even blend them with this brush.

I got it from House of Fraser and it was on the £30 mark. Each individual mineralize e/s is actually £18.50.
I'm trying to find it online (House of Fraser and Space NK) and I cannot see it. It's part of their holiday 2011 collection. They definitely have it at the counters. 
Here's a link to the official LM website in America if you want to get more info.

I love using these e/s wet or dry. I love the relaxed sparkle that they give to my eyes. It's super handy for the handbag especially this time of the year when we need to get from the office to the bar/restaurant more often for all the xmas celebrations and office gatherings!

I also got yesterday the Laura Mercier Illuminator. It's soooooooo pretty!
