Laura Mercier Eye Art Artist's PaletteI picked this beautiful Laura Mercier Eye Art Artist’s Palette up during the Sephora VIB sale a few weeks ago – it is a re-release/re-package from 2013 and while the full price tag made me choke a bit, at 15% off it wasn’t too bad.

The packaging is pretty and has a magnetic closure, but it’s cardboard – which I wasn’t expecting for a $70 palette. This is the most I think I’ve ever spent on one before, so I don’t know if this is a common thing? I was surprised by it.

The shadows themselves are quite nice and a great mix of shimmer and matte shades. They blend beautifully and I experienced very little fallout. It’s the only palette I have where I know I will use every shade regularly. The only shade that was a bit chalky is Violet Ink – but I find applying it on top of another shadow helps. The lightest 2 shades on both rows are strictly highlights and blending shades for me, I tried really hard to get Vanilla Nuts to show up but even right after applying I had a hard time seeing it.

Sparkling Dew as a base, Plum Smoke and Violet Ink in my crease, African Violet and Kir Royal on my lid, and Guava in the inner corner of my eyes.

Overall I am very happy I picked this up and highly recommend it!

  1. Oh wow. You killed this eyeshadow palette! The blending between shades on your lids is incredible!

    I have the original one, and I’ve watched videos on the re-release. It seems there are a few changes, although the only significant one seems to be that Vanilla Nuts has become less pink and more beige. If I compare Vanilla Nuts in my 2013 Artist palette and the 2014 Artist palette, the Vanilla Nuts in the 2014 is more like the regular line of her shadows, and therefore is more true to Vanilla Nuts in her lineup. I think the 2013 version was an accident, and they corrected it in the 2015 re-release. Without a doubt though, one of my top 3 palettes I own.
