I’ve never been one to like a baked shadow… so I tend to stay away from the domed releases, no matter how beautiful they are. Until now. Laura Mercier Petite Baked Eyecolor Bonbons (shown below in Bronze) have become part of my go-to eye look (see EOTD at the bottom) every day for the last week. I actually get sad when I have to wear something else for testing and review purposes. The Bonbons are also available in Amethyst and Emerald (yes, I’ve already purchased the Emerald!).
What Nordstrom says about Laura Mercier Petite Baked Eyecolor Bonbons:
Dress up your holiday season with Laura Mercier Petite Baked Eyecolor Bonbons, a trio of multi-finish eyeshadows tucked into a petite, portable palette.
How to use: For an even wash of color, apply dry. For a more vibrant shimmer, simply dampen your brush with water and apply wet.
The Bronze trio contains a nude satin, a duochrome bronze/green and a chocolate bronze pearl. Quite beautiful to look at!
Clearly these shadows are much more intense when used wet, but I was still impressed with the pigment when I used them dry (see below). The shades were all smooth and easy to blend. I did have a slight amount of fall-out with the deepest shade, so be aware of that and maybe do your eye makeup before you start with your face. When used over an eyeshadow primer, this trio lasted the day on my lids without fading or creasing.
The packaging is a rather petite, plastic mirrored compact that is extremely portable and easy to store.
In the EOTD below I used MAC Utterly Becoming Pro Longwear Paint Pot as a base and did the liner first, which is MAC Past Twilight Fluidline. I applied the chocolate bronze shade all over the lid (including over the Fluidline) and through the crease. The middle duochome shade is in the crease, blended up. The nude shade was used at the inner corners and to blend out the crease. The mascara is MAC In Extreme Dimension Lash.
