I don't know what it is with Laura Mercier, but she just gets it! She seems to make the perfect makeup so it's impossible to go wrong and she doesn't ever just make something for the sake of it. I recently found out that she really dislikes BB creams and has no plans to make one, which just makes me respect her even more!
If you're in London or visiting Harvey Nichols, this is her new limited edition palette they're currently selling as an exclusive. It's in a beautiful, sturdy case that opens up to reveal 6 wearable eye shadows, 3 tight line cake eye liners and 2 pretty powder blushers. It also comes with a 'get the look' instruction book, which is actually really handy.
I feel like this palette would be particularly good for brown eyed brunettes because of the purple and navy tones but it's definitely quite versatile. The eyeliners are great because if you used an angled brush they can be used either dry or wet for a more intense look.
So if you're a palette person and a Laura Mercier fan, get yourself down to Harvey Nichols quickly! The Colour Portfolio is £65 and would make a seriously amazing gift.
