Good morning, class! Today we’re looking at the new Laura Mercier Editorial Eye Palette. I received the Editorial Eye Palette complimentary via Influenster. As always, all thoughts are my own.
This new palette is one-of-a-kind.
The Editorial Eye Palette Intense Clays features studio-inspired, high-performance brushed metal and matte textured Clays to give you intense color without any shadow fall-out. Soft, flexible, clay-like hybrid textures apply beautifully with a unique, wet feel that seems to melt onto your skin. It also comes with an exclusive Air-light Setting Powder to prolong wear for up to eight hours and prevent creasing. – Sephora description
I thought I’d first swatch the shades for you. Each swatch also has a portion (on the right) that has been gone over with the setting powder.
As you can see, the colors are very pigmented and offer a nice variety. However, you might notice a lack of lighter transition and brow bone shades.
There are many ways to apply the shadows form the Laura Mercier Editorial Eye Palette, but my favorite way is to “stamp and set.” This is a stamping, or tapping motion with the finger that allows for quick application while maintaining the intense pigmentation of the both the matte and shimmer shades. I made a little video for you. Please note that this is my first ever tutorial video and I apologize for the crappy lighting and dry skin on my nose…
Overall, I really enjoy this palette. If you’d like to check it out, Sephora now carries it!
