I couldn't quite capture the beauty of African Violet so took one under a different lighting...and still not satisfied! You'll just have to imagine that there's a slight golden sparkle on my lids.

Because of my warm yellow undertones, I do not rock purple eyeshadows. That's precisely the reason why I wasn't excited for Laura Mercier's Artist Palette when it first came out in 2013 because I thought the top row of the palette would be practically useless for me. Plus, the original palette was sold out so quickly that I did not even get the chance to swatch them.

So when Laura Mercier Eyes Art Artist Palette came out in 2015, I was still a bit skeptical about how the purple toned eyeshadows would look on me. I also debated between this one and Laura Mercier's Sleek and Chic Eye Colour Palette but because I own Laura Mercier's Ginger as a single eyeshadow, I went ahead and got the Artist Palette. 

Do the eyeshadows on the top row of this palette that I assumed would be too cool-toned for me flatter my skin tone? Unfortunately, not all of them. 
I have no problem with Sparkling Dew, Guava, and African Violet (oh this one has got to be my all time favorite, un-dupable eyeshadow EVER!), but I find myself needing to brighten up my foundation if I were to use Plum Smoke, Kir Royal, or Violet Ink. Without brightening up my foundation by a significant bit, I look like I haven't slept in years and my eyes look dull. 

Overall do I regret purchasing this palette? Absolutely not! 
African Violet, because it has such gorgeous gold shimmer to it, looks absolutely amazing especially with Primrose and Fresco. I can definitely see myself putting a dent on this one FAST, and I will not hesitate a second before getting this in singles. Bamboo is a close dupe to Burberry's eyeshadow in Pale Barley (another favorite of mine, and will do a comparison soon!), and Fresco is a perfect crease and transition color. 

You probably will not find these eyeshadows to be as pigmented as, say Makeup Forever eyeshadows. However, they are very buildable and are so soft and creamy, like all other Laura Mercier's eyeshadows. Even on my super oily skin, these eyeshadows do not crease and last a good 7-8 hours without a primer. The price did increase from the original palette to $55, but considering that Laura Mercier's single eyeshadows cost $24 and because African Violet is such a precious shade, I would still call this a steal! 

I will be posting more looks using this Artist's Palette, so stay tuned! 

XOXO,

  5. I've always been about the nude colours, but I've been looking for a palette with the pink and purple tones. And they're actually colours that really suit my face. I always use the same Estée Lauder colour. It's so so gorgeous.

  6. All of the colors look so nice, and I usually don't see a single palette with just pink and purple eyeshadows, but I really like these! Unfortunately I don't think I'd personally get too much wear from these as I tend to go for nudes, and the two pinks/purples I have are definitely enough. It looks really good on you though, glad you found a purple that you like :)
