A Mini Eye Palette for an Edgy Girl on the Go: Stuff My Stocking, Stuffer 10
By Zoe Hawryluk
If you’re looking for the perfect palette for your edgy Mom or makeup-loving best friend, look no further than the Laura Mercier Editorial Eye Palette Intense Clays.
At $48, this palette has it all -- three hyper-intense matte shadows, three gorgeous coordinating metallics, and a shimmery setting powder. The palette has a variety of warmth to it, from the coolest blue shades, to a neutral black and pink duo, to a pair of warm browns.
The metallic shades work perfectly all over the lid, while the mattes deeply define the crease (without creasing!). You can also use them as eyeliner or to just darken the outer edge, with your bronzer as the transition shade. The options are all very versatile and work well together. The setting powder is translucent with flecks of fine silver glitter to give your lids that extra pop.
A look I created using the matte blue clay in the crease and on my lower lash line, with the blue metallic all over the lid and the pink metallic in my inner corner.
When I’m online window shopping for eye palettes for myself, one thing I always keep in mind is whether or not it’ll travel well. This little guy is the perfect for beauty gurus on the go. Add the $30 Clay Smudge Brush for a gift that’ll have her jaw on the floor.
