Laura Mercier Enlightenment Eye and Cheek Palette Review and Swatches

first four colors are the shadows and the last two are the blushes ( colors are enhanced in this picture )

Angelic, Grace, Pure Glow, Innocence , Blushing , Awakening 

I know many of you have been anticipating the arrival of Laura Mercier's new spring 2014 collection.

I had seen the press release and knew I was getting the palette as soon as it came out.

While the colors look very pretty in the palette, all four shadows are super light in color and the palette is not very versatile.

I loved the blush color Blushing, which is the bright one. Unfortunately Awakening blush was a total let down for me, it barely showed up on me even if I was to wear it as a highlight color.

I don't know about you, but when I think of spring makeup I want bright colors, not light and subdued.

This palette is just not my cup of tea.

I am sure if you like a soft, subtle eye look you will like the Enlightenment palette.

Retail is $55.00.
