After making a special effort to try more Laura Mercier I can see why so many people love the brand therefore I was naturally I was very excited to try the new Flawless Contour Palette.
Contour palettes are everywhere at the moment and it seems to be the key product more than ever in the beauty industry with what seems like every brand bringing out a new contour product for 2015. Most of us have learnt to use powders so brands are upgrading to cream textures which is actually not quite as easy as I first thought although they often look a little more professional/flawless look than powders, if used right.
The first thing I noticed about the Laura Mercier Flawless Contour Palette is that you get five colours which are all cream; three contour shades and two highlights. The three contours are a little scary as they are fairly dark, even the lightest is darker than most other contours I have and there isn’t a choice of palette colours. I had my makeup done by one of the Laura Mercier girls who used all three contour shades and made it look amazing but I personally do struggle to get the darker ones to look natural and not too dark. I love the first highlighter which adds a beautiful amount of light to the face but find highlight #2 to almost be a cross between a blush and highlight.
Although this is a beautiful palette, filled with great quality products which is great for any contour experts out there and I think after a few days practice I’m beginning to love it too. It does however seem almost a little high maintenance within the Laura Mercier range which I find to be quite easy to use and natural whilst still being polished and delivering excellent results.
I’m going to keep going with this palette as I’m really enjoying experimenting with it and I will check in soon with a round up of my favourite contours in a week or so, I would love suggestions as to which is your favourite contour in the comments!
The Laura Mercier Flawless Contour Palette is out now and retails for £35 from Laura Mercier counters.
