So the season begins, enticing little holiday sets start to appear at the counters and there is no point in trying to resist....
So here we have the Smoky Mauves Petite Eye Colour Trio (£20), one of 3 trios launched for the Laura Mercier holiday collection.
Smoky Mauves contains sparkling dew (slightly shimmered pinked cream), wisteria (slightly shimmered warmed mauve with a hint of brown) and kir royal (deep plum with subtle micro glitter).
The pigment is good and they feel smooth (although Kir royal is slightly less smooth), I do have to wear an eye base with these.
Its called Smoky Mauves and that's exactly what you get. Nothing astounding here but if you don't have similar shades this is a nice concise palette.
To show you the size, here it is against a MAC 4 pan
Sorry for the poor quality eye look picture but I had to take this with a flash whilst in a rush and this was the best of a bad bunch
One of the LM holiday offerings that really did catch my eye (I was scuppered as they didn't have it in stock yet) was the eye pencil set, really good value at £31 for 5 full sized Kohls so I'll try and pick one up.
I bought this from John Lewis.
