I have another holiday makeup kit for you. This is one is from Laura Mercier and its called Colour-To-Go Portable Palette For Eyes, Lips & Cheeks in Smoky Violets.
Here's the specs:
-3 Eye Shadows
-1 Tightline Eye Liner
-1 Lips Gloss ( in After Hours)
Avaible in Smoky Violets and Smoky Nudes
Here are the swatches of the shadows and the liner. I didn't even realize that the dark shade was a liner!!! You will need to have a wet liner brush on hand to use the liner.
This look I created with all the shades except the liner. The liner I used is from a brand I can't even remember!( Grrr!!:( )
I find the shadows to be soft and pigmented, simply, quality shadows. When you wear alot of low, low end makeup, quality just sneaks up on you like a thief in the night! You'll be like "Ohhhh...look that pigmentation!" LOL!
The blush is super light but it acutally works for a nice highlight. I used the blush and bronzer in this palette for a glowy cheek as you can see.
The gloss is nice if you like a basic nude lip. It doesn' really show its true fabulosity until its on top of a lip color. I paired the After Hours gloss with Wet N' Wild 902C or Bare It All, and its now my new nude lip to go to!!
Six Laura Mercier products in a portable, TRUE travel size palette for $50 is a STEAL. If you are a newbie to this brand or a fan with a budget, holiday time is the perfect season to stock up on some products that LM offers for a great deal. Go get this palette!!
