Laura Mercier has always been an all-time fav for me so imagine how excited I was when I heard that they recently launched the Flawless Contouring Palette ! This is the ultimate cream contour palette ! The Palette consists of 3 depths of contouring shades and 2 highlighting shades. I am absolutely in love with the undertones of the contour shades. Most contour palettes contain shades of brown, which in actuality is incorrect.
The Laura Mercier Flawless Contouring Palette consists of 3 different grayish-brown shades. Any artist will tell you that in order to create any kind of shadow, one needs to add grey to the canvas, and that’s exactly what Laura Mercier has done with this palette.
The contour Palette consists of 5 creamy shades:
Contour #1 – beige brown
Contour Medium #2 – chocolate brown
Contour Deep #3 – deep chocolate brown
- all of the contour shades have a gray undertone
Highlight #1 – creamy beige with a hint of shimmer
Highlight #2 – amber bronze
The texture of the creams are super creamy therefore it’s important to be quite light handed when you apply them as the brush can easily pick up a lot of product. They’re super easy to blend as the texture of the creams glide on so easily. Unlike most contour palettes, this actually suits a lot of medium to darker skin tones.
Another handy thing about this palette, is that it actually comes with tips on where to apply the contour and highlight. Honestly, I love the personal touch that’s been added into this palette. It makes me feel like this is ‘my’ special contour palette.
I’m a contour and highlight addict when it comes to my makeup transformations, and I know it’s just a matter of time before I’ll be scraping this palette empty.
This retails for 232AED and can be found in all Areej stores within the UAE.
