Laura Mercier Free Spirit Palette Review

As I sit here in my fuzzy slippers sipping hot cocoa, it’s hard to wrap my head around the fact that Spring Collections will be hitting counters this month.

The first Spring review I have for you in the gorgeous Laura Mercier Free Spirit Palette.

I love the variety of colors, but the formula was slightly disappointing.

Laura Mercier Free Spirit Palette Review

Product Claims:7/10
Laura Mercier Says:Laura Mercier Free Spirit Baked Eye Colour Palette perfectly pairs five baked eye colours into one convenient compact and includes a double-ended Eye Colour/Crème Eye Detail Brush for flawless application. Create endless looks using each shade dry for a more natural look or wet to add intensity and drama to the eyes.


When swatched dry, the blue and brown shades leave a lot to be desired. They are sheer and patchy.
When those same shades are swatched wet, they take on a richer look.


I found this palette to be dryer and stiffer than the other Baked eye palettes I own. This made it hard to get an even application, and even harder to blend out.

Ease of Use:6/10

I really like the tan packaging for a spring collection.

Overall, I really love the colors included in this palette. They are feminine and elegant just as a Spring collection should be. However, I was disappointed that the wet/dry palette  had to be used wet.

Available: This Month at Laura Mercier Counters and online now!

  4. Spring will be here before we know it, eh?
    Love your honest review! I love the colors and, agree, the packaging is gorgeous.

  5. Those colors look very nice for day wear. I am tempted to get one. Thank you very much for the informative review.


  6. I have never heard of this brand. Thanks for the honest review! It’s probably not something I buy because I have NO idea how to use an eyeshadow wet. I didn’t even know you could! 🙂

  7. Love the earth tones, right up my alley. I am also a fan of the brown tones and frosted eyeshadows too. Nice selection in one case too!

  8. These are perfect colors. I wonder if you used them dry with an eyeshadow base if it would help get a better application.

  9. I love the colors! I am a bit disappointed in how they look dry, but they would probably be great for work since they are much lighter.

  10. Those are great colors. I love wearing gold and bronze this time of the year.

  11. I really like the light colors. Simple and easy for the spring.

  16. Oh those colors are really pretty! I never knew that you could make colors pop more by dipping in water.

  17. I love the range of colors in the palette. I must admit that I’ve really not played with wet versus dry on eye color and just might need to experiment with the wet now.

  18. Love this palette!

  19. Thank you for sharing. My daughter would love these!
