I’m all about multitasking beauty products, which is why I’m such a fan of makeup palettes. However, not all palettes are not the same. All too often, I have gotten palettes and they have a gazillion colors and I only use two or three of them. So, I was totally overjoyed when I received the Laura Mercier Daring By Day Eye & Cheek Colour Palette because I use every single color in it and love it. Besides, who doesn’t want to have a sexy smokey eye paired with glowing skin?
What it is:
A palette with five eye shadows, an eye pencil, and a cheek color to create smoky, sultry nighttime looks.
What it does:
Create smoldering eye looks with the Daring By Night Eye & Cheek Colour Palette. It features five eye shadows that range from matte to highly pearlized for endless evening looks. For added drama, glide the kohl eye pencil along the upper lash line. Brighten up the complexion with the Face Highlighter in Rosegold Shimmer—then layer it for extra color.
This palette contains:
– 5 x 0.03 oz Eye Colour in Pewter Dust, Silver Fox, Poison Ivory, Noir, Thunder
– 0.1 oz Face Highlighter in Rosegold Shimmer
– 0.03 oz Kohl Eye Pencil in Jet Black
I’m already a fan of Laura Mercier makeup, so had a great feeling about this palette. This is my first time experiencing the eyeshadows in the line, and I am so delighted with the creamy texture, the pigment and ease of application. The eyeshadows in the Daring By Day Eye & Cheek Colour Palette in a word are wonderful!
I’ve done at least four versions of a smokey eye with this palette — all matte with black and grey shadows and all shimmery smoke! And then I have mixed it up– combined the shimmer and matte colors. The beauty of these shadows is that if used sparingly with a deft hand, they are perfect for a day look. Bump up the smolder for night by just adding a bit more color and the black eyeliner pencil that’s included in the palette.
Also in the palette is a cheek highlighter that’s perfect for day or night. I love a bit of glow, and this cheek highlighter is perfect for day or night or even for a light wash of color over the eyelid. The price point is only $48 for five eyeshadows, a cheek highlighter and an eye pencil — a true value!
