Great Gifts: Laura Mercier Colour-To-Go Portable Palette.

Laura Mercier puts out the most stunning limited edition holiday items and this Colour-To-Go Portable Palette just so happens to be one of them.

This palette is like its name says, it is portable, but what it holds is incredible. This portable palette holds a trio of eyeshadows, a cake eyeliner, a blush, a bronzer and even a mini lip gloss, all tucked inside a palette that fits inside the palm of your hand. This palette is called Smoky Violet with coordinated shades in soft pinks and plums to create a beautiful smoky purple eye.

The shadows are finely milled and very pigmented. They apply with ease, blend well and last all day. I love the cake eye liner. It can be applied wet for a more dramatic look, or dry for a daytime look. The blush and bronzer pair and beautiful and natural. The wear all day nicely and would complement a variety of skin tones. The lip gloss is a natural nude peach gloss that would flatter everyone too.

The Laura Mercier Colour-To-Go Portable Palette sells for $50.00 at lauramercier.com and Nordstrom.
