Beauty kits are my go-to gift for the holiday season. Since most pallets provide a Â compact sampling of the seasonâ€™s hottest color trends, itâ€™s always a guaranteed hit.
With color schemes that will transition seamlessly from crisp autumn days to cozy winter nights, Laura Mercierâ€™s Limited Edition Luxe Colour Portfolio has everything you need for a flawless face. The kit includes six eyeshadow color combinations, two blush options, three powder eyeliners, and three brushes for proper application.
The eyeshadow palettes are broken down into two color schemes: a standardÂ nude and a pinkish-plum selection. I love the plum color combination best â€“ it creates an incredibly soft, romantic look.Â While both are fabulous when worn independently, I also like mixing them together and getting a little creative.
What I loved most about the kit was the eyeliner. You have three options â€“ standard black, a softer brown, and uber-trendy plum. The kitâ€™s flat eyeliner brush that makes application a cinch, too. Hint: For longer lasting wear, I like to wet the eyeliner brush before pressing into the powder. It seals the makeup and creates a bolder line. If only this kit included concealer and lip gloss, I wouldnâ€™t even need to throw a makeup bag in my purse!
Buy one for yourself, and one for a friend. Whatever gal-pal you treat to this holiday set is sure to be pleased.Â Find the portfolio online here for $98.00.
