Laura Mercier Holiday Colour 2012 - Petite Baked Eye Trio in Smoky Metallics
Swatched dry on bare skinThis cute little baked eye shadow trio would make a great stocking stuffer! It's just glam enough (the little bits of sparkle are so fun), and I love that you can go bold by using it wet, or go subtle by using it dry. You can get a really intense metallic look by using them wet. You'd think that a basic silver/grey/black palette would be boring, but I like that there's depth to these colors. The darkest shade is a little patchy when used dry, but works well when used wet as an eyeliner. I appreciate that there's a mirror inside (I can never have enough mirrored compacts! Seriously!). The length of wear on these was pretty good--I always use eye primer though, especially when using baked shadows dry.
Just an FYI, the Golden Metallic petite baked eye trio is gorgeous too--I swatched it at my local Laura Mercier makeup counter and just loved all of the pretty colors.
If you love baked eyeshadows, or know someone who does, I highly suggest that you pick these up!
