Hey, everyone! I'm back again with another review! I got the delightful Laura Mercier Eye Art Artist's Palette for Christmas, and I've enjoyed it so much that I thought I would do a review. I love Laura Mercier's eyeshadows and have a few of the singles, including African Violet, and they are some of my most-used shadows. Typically, I wouldn't be too thrilled having an extra, but in this case, I don't mind at all.

The palette contains 12 eyeshadows with cool shades on the top row and warm shades on the bottom. Espresso Bean, Fresco, Plum Smoke, Truffle, Vanilla Nuts, and Violet Ink are the Matte Eye Colour formula. African Violet and Bamboo are Luster Eye Colours, and Guava, Kir Royal, Primrose, and Sparkling Dew are Sateen Eye Colours.

As you can see, the lighter shades blend right on into my skin tone. Most of these are pigmented, but I wish Guava showed up a bit better. It tends to blend out into almost nothing. The luster shades, African Violet and Bamboo, are my favorites to wear on their own for a one color blend-it-out-and-go type of look. The matte shades are pigmented and blend well. I haven't had any fallout with these either, even when I have used Violet Ink and Espresso Bean as liners.

Here are a couple of eyeshadow looks I've worn using this palette. I love purples and neutrals, so it has been easy for me to pick up this palette and play with it.

Overall, I'm really pleased with this palette. I appreciate that 6 of the 12 shades are matte. These colors are practical without becoming boring, and there's a nice mix of cool and warm tones. My main complaint is with the shade, Guava. I understand why it was included, but it's not pigmented enough to be useful. I wish they would have used a matte soft pink instead.

What do you think of the Laura Mercier Eye Art Artist's Palette? Do you own any of the single shadows?
