Spring hasn’t quite sprung yet, but it’s on its way. I know this because Laura Mercier has launched a new limited edition palette for spring 2014 that has become my all time favorite palette EVER!

It may seem pre-mature to talk spring make-up (since I’m writing this while looking at snow blowing outside my window) however I picked up this palette while on holiday in South Florida and I haven’t worn anything else since. Nor do I have any intention of switching any time soon.

This Enlightenment Eye and Cheek Palette has 4 eye shadows and 2 blushes that will flatter every complexion. At first glance they all look very sparkly and shimmery. I don’t do “sparkly” so I was a bit skeptical but it looked so beautiful that I thought “what the heck, for $55 I could be a sport.”

All 4 shadows are neutrals that wear beautifully, they do not look glitzy and shimmery when they are on. If anything they brighten your eyes and help you look really well rested. As someone who usually wears 2 shadows (one on the lid and one in the crease) I’ve been wearing these solo, they make your eyes look so good you only need one at a time. I have however layered them to see how they’d wear in pairs and they were brilliant…literally!

The 2 blushes really impressed me as well. One looked really bright in the palette but when I put it on it gave me a magnificent glow.

This palette gets a 5 star rating from me. This will be your go to palette for day and night.

Making this palette very palatable for all!
