Who wouldn’t want to wear eye makeup that matches their smoky pants??
The 1st factor I noticed when I opened this $ 58 Laura Mercier Double Impact Eye Colour Collection palette was that bottom row of awesome-toned greys. Some of ’em looked a minor blue, and I imagined, “These totally seem like the crazy pants my mom acquired me from Costco.”
Lady, these pants are all over the place! I am not kidding. Shortly following my mom received them for me, El Hub and I have been driving by means of China Town in the city, and I noticed this cute older Chinese lady strolling by way of the crowd with a big bag of greens. “Look!” I said to El Hub. “She’s wearing my smoky pants!”
And then last month at our hotel in Tahoe whilst we have been waiting in the lobby to verify in, I noticed a lady strolling away from me with her roller bag and her cute little butt clad in these smoky pants.
I whispered, “She’s sporting my smoky pants…”
They’re freaking all over the place.
They are grey with a type of a blue tinge, but I do not know. I can not constantly tell with my eyes. Note to self: Make an appointment with the optometrist.
So I believe I see a small blue in the pants, and I was hoping that the bottom row of colors in this palette would have a bluish tint, too, simply because I adore bluish greys.
But when I received the shadows on my lids, they looked straight-up amazing-toned grey, which is also fine…’cause I also enjoy awesome-toned greys, especially in smoky looks.
So…I feel I may well be spoiled for daily life by the super pigmented Victoria Beckham X Estée Lauder palette due to the fact a layer or two with it and I’m done, but these shadows are sheerer than that.
I have to pat some on, buff it out, then pat some a lot more, then buff that out, then pat even more, and then buff that out once again.
I admit that I’m out of practice with slightly challenging, moderately intense looks, but it even now look like I’m piling a lot of this makeup on. Just an FYI.
And the fallout is reasonably extreme. I had a good deal below my eyes when I did this look, particularly when I utilised that dark navy blue shade. If you do your eyes initial, then clean up, you’ll be fine.

I also utilised a couple of of the prime row colors, like the cool-toned matte brown on the far left. I used it in the crease, then deepened it with the darker, sort of greyish brown two from the right.
I adore me some mattes, and I like these also, but I come to feel like they appear a ta heavy on my skin.
I feel it was extremely thoughtful of Laura Mercier to contain a excellent variety of mattes in the palette due to the fact I do not have to reach for any added shadows when I want to do a smoky appear.
Oh! — by the way, if you have Laura Mercier’s Stormy Grey Kohl Eye Pencil (it’s a Excellent pencil to have), this must look amazing with it. I didn’t dress in it right here due to the fact I can not uncover mine…
When I did this appear, I used Laura Mercier’s new Brush It On Luxe Brush Collection, which is fantastic, but it is $ 98.
I think that Laura’s holiday travel brushes are really great, even though. They’re soft and typically hold up properly.
