Normally, I stick to one palette for a month then move on to another by next because I have so many! I meant to use only the Laura Mercier Holiday 2013 Palette for this month, but I can’t keep myself from also using In theBalm of Your Hand.
When I saw the palette online, I knew I had to have it because it has Mary-Lou Manizer, Bahama Mama, and an Instain blush. Oh my goodness, I so badly wanted it! I made sure I had the dough before I checked Beauty Bar though, so I can quickly purchase it in case they have it. Of course it was a happy ending for moi. 😀
Before I go on my review, just an fyi that the lip colors aren’t included in this review.
These past few days have been terribly terribly hot. DX If only I can not go out in mornings! But there’s work. =_= Anyway, last night I saw in the root folder of one of my external drives a photo of Emily Browning:
I remember saving this because of her pretty shimmery eye makeup which looks to be pale emerald green. Since I’m going out today, I thought of attempting to copy it. I have a similar shade in one of my Estee Lauder palettes so I took that out for this. 🙂
In spite the exhaustion from yesterday morning’s inspection all over Makati, I still pushed through farming and tanking with other *insert game here* players. I can’t disclose yet what game it is until I blog about it. 😀 Anyway, I wanted to personally meet the mucho friendly people who welcomed me to their group.
I did a dark eye makeup since I would be meeting them late night plus I feel like doing dark eye makeup more often (or as long as I’m not going to the office).

I’m so happy. 😀 I have set my eyes on the Laura Mercier Holiday 2013 Collection for weeks and weeks. I did my best to restrain myself; see if I can sleep it off for many nights. There were days I forgot about it, but the moment I checked the Laura Mercier store in Glorietta 3, I knew I just have to get ONE. Either the double decker or bold brights and both were hard to resist, so… I got BOTH.
This Lancôme quad eyeshadow beats all my other eyeshadows. Its longevity is the best.
This quad eyeshadow palette contains four shades some of which, based on research as of writing, is available in singles.
Suntouched — Frosty, very light brown
Latte — Matte off-white
Lezard — Matte dark brown with some micro-shimmers
Burnt Sand — Frosty light copper
The eyeshadows are housed in a plastic casing that locks tightly. With the light plastic casing, only the eyeshadows make this palette slightly heavy. This is very compact that it’s easy to tuck in your purse or convenient on travel which is a plus for me.
The FOTD or makeup is irrelevant to the holiday. I just used that for the title because I went out on that holiday to hang out and magpalamig with Kat. We made some discovery that day — Uniqlo and Claire’s are opening in Glorietta 5 soon. We went OMGOMGOGMOGMOGMOGMOGMGOMGOMG when we saw the huge Uniqlo tarpaulin in the near-empty mall.
Anyway, this was my makeup. Very demure. LOLOL The colors for my eyes are colors of spring — Green and yellow with a little brown which reminds me of sunflowers as many as that in the Big Fish movie. ♥
Urban Decay just released their Fall 2010 Collection last June 29, 2010. Eye makeup lovers might ♥ the palettes. 😀

Double-ended eyeliner in Zero (black) and Whiskey (brown)
The new and exclusive shades are Virgin, Buck, Darkhorse, Hustle, and Creep. The other shades are either permanent or have been included in previous UD palettes/Book of Shadows. Toasted, Creep, and Gunmetal look nice, don’t you think? I so want the palette. I’m getting it if I have extra funds and if it’s still available by then. 😛
Back in grade school, the makeup artist for our yearbook told me what color suits me.
He was right. 🙂 Good thing I believed him. I now have a brown variety of eyeshadows and even eyeliners. 🙂 I’m on the lookout for pop shades that will look good on me. Aside from white, that is. I’m thinking light pink or light purple.
