Laura Mercier Chocolate Vanilla Eye CollectionFriday, January 11, 2008
A few weeks ago, my husband gave me a task before he went to work. He wanted more ideas for Christmas presents, and he wanted them that day. I found a few pairs of shoes on Nordstrom, but then I ran out of ideas. Then it hit me- what about the more expensive but limited edition cosmetic items that I would never buy on my own? Well, this collection was on my list within a few minutes, and I was lucky enough to get it! (Yes, he is a keeper!)
These eye shadow palettes come together in a great faux leather case, and they are sure to satisfy any craving you might have for the Bobbi Brown Stonewashed Nudes Palette if you missed out. Stonewashed nudes has a combination of matte and shimmer shadows, and that is the case here. The shades are all very universally flattering, well pigmented and are easily blended. The 2 dual end shadow brushes are different, giving you 4 different brushes to help you create your look! I also like that this collection is split into 2 palettes, which makes them easier to store.
• Chocolate Crème
• Creme Vanilla
• Vanilla Nuts
• Vanilla Pearl
Do I like these shadows more than my beloved Stonewashed Nudes? Honestly I think they fill the same need in my makeup collection- great basic shadows to combine with other shadows. If you don't have Stonewashed Nudes then hurry to Saks, these shadows are a must!
