An exclusive Contouring Palette that brings Laura Mercier’s artistry techniques to life in an easy, fun way—allowing you to play with light to enhance, sculpt, and add shadow to the face.
This palette of blendable creams delivers foolproof application every time. Shade intensity is much lighter than it appears, so it’s perfect for all skintones. Through her artisan lens, developed over years of working as a professional makeup artist, Laura Mercier has carefully chosen these neutral shades in a darker range to help sculpt the face. The key to everyday contouring is to be discrete. This Contouring Palette is designed to define and highlight your best features with five delicate, but buildable creams. The extraordinary formula is more blendable than typical contouring powders, allowing for a natural, flawless, and seamless application every time. For a complete flawless look, finish with the Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder.
I’ve been pretty open about telling people you don’t need to invest money in retail contour palettes on colors that you won’t use and instead telling women to go pro. But the Laura Mericer Flawless Contour Palette caught my attention for different reasons. It’s the most unique contour palette on the market with the use of neutral shades in 3 ranges but also by including cream illuminators in gold and bronze. This works perfectly for the girl that owns enough light highlight shades but never enough cream illuminators.

Contour Medium #2 and Contour Deep #3 are nice contour shades for me but that doesn’t mean Contour #! won’t get any love. I love taupe! I can add a lip liner and gloss and use this shade on my lips. I can also use this shade on the lids. As much as I love this palette I wish the finishes were a little more matte. They don’t make me shiny which is great and they do blend really well but I would love them to be just a tad more matte. It works just fine with my setting powders and I can easily just toss it in my bag when I’m doing my makeup on-the-go. I completely forgot to take photos of the instructional booklet that’s located behind the mirror. It can’t be detached and in my opinion it could have just been a booklet or on the back of the case. I don’t think it’s a huge selling point. I also think the price could be lower, maybe around $40-45.
