This is a whole new world of eyeshadow palettes, and no, we’re not being dramatic. Cue Aladdin’s A Whole New World to set the tone. But seriously, Laura Mercier’s Editorial Eye Palette is out of this world.. From the outside it looks like any other eyeshadow palette, maybe a little confusing in choices of colours. It comes with three matte clays in blackened black, blackened blue and blackened brown along with three brushed metallic clays; a metallic platinum, metallic pewter and metallic rust. Key word: clay. This is no powdery, fallout inducing palette. Oh, no. It’s by Laura Mercier so it’s inevitably going to be better than your average. The clays give an intense, luminous colour in what they call a “graphic” way, and that’s exactly what it is. Graphically good. The key to perfection is in the eyeshadow brush made specifically for this palette (see below). The eyeshadow glides on smoothly with a wet feel which melts into the skin. Nice. It become a coherent part of the makeup look instead of that powdery, movable layer on top of the skin. And it really does glow. Trust us, we know, we tried, we conquered the day in our Editorial Eye Palette. But of course, as always, good things come to those who wait. The palette is out May. Otherworldly good. The countdown begins.
