Laura Mercier Bonne Mine Palette

I decided to delve into the world of Space NK this Xmas as they were having a fantastic sale. I only picked up two things one being the Laura Mecier Bonne Mine Palette for a cracking £8.50 down from £18.50. I really love the Laura Mercier Oil Free Tinter Moisturiser and my arm is always covered in swatches when I am at the counter in John Lewis (next on my wishlist - a peach blusher!)

The packaging isn't exactly travel friendly but if you are travel you can always put an elastic band around it. Plus it's compact and pretty and you wouldn't have to carry around other bronzers/blushers all day. As you can see from the picture above there are four cards which slide out to show how to use each of the types of products which is quite handy.

There are 3 types of products which are all a cream formula but once blended look like powder; firstly the large bronzer veil on the right which you blend into the hollows of your face, next two cheek veils for the apples of your cheeks and finally two glow veils to highlight under the brow bone, cupid's bow & above the cheekbones.

Left to Right - Top glow veil, top cheek veil, bottom glow veil, bottom cheek veil & bronzer veil.

As you can see the colours are lovely and warm which is the look I always go for - a healthy glow. I actually really love the bottom glow veil as a cream eyeshadow. They are fairly pigmented but definitely something that can be build up to give a stronger look.

I'm not sure if you can still pick this up in the sale but I would still pay £18.50 for this as you get a lot of different products to try out and they really are lovely. I would especially recommend this for girls with olive to dark skin!

Happy Saturday!
