Laura Mercier Bonne Mine Palette Review & Swatches

Mr C gifted me with this Laura Mercier palette for Christmas called Bonne Mine (exclusive to Selfridges).

It is a thick cardboard palette with 5 products in it. They say:

This ultra-sheer, blendable palette wakes up the skin and gives it an immediate, healthy glow. Customize your look with bronzer, cheek color, and glow for a natural “no makeup” radiance. Inside, there are tabs that fan out to display Laura’s secrets on how to best use the formulas to create standout results.

You get a large bronzer veil, two cheek veils and two ‘glow’ veils.

The palette is very pretty but also bulky and annoying to store. I would never carry this around to me, it’s far too big. It is very sturdy though.

It comes with a large mirror and a piece of plastic. I quite like these shades although they are quite similar; bronzy type shades. It’s a palette that’s supposed to wake up the face, which I guess these colours (bronze, peach and oyster) do, even though none of the shades on their own are that interesting.

I love cream products so I like these. These are ‘veils’ so as you can imagine, pretty sheer. On my medium tones skin, they show up ok – if you are darker than me (I am about NC35) then I’m not sure they would look particularly pigmented.

Swatches:

The two glow products are quite light work well as highlighters. The pink is not as bright as it looks and the deep rose is more of a brown-rose. The bronze veil is pigmented but a bit orange for my liking. It’s like a creamier oilier version of Bronze Universel.

Verdict:

I do like this product and at the end of the day it’s a handy gift I will use in the future. It’s just not too practical in presentation and the colours aren’t madly interesting as singularly but ok as a group.

  1. This would be so practical for an every day :cries:…

  2. Arg! I’ve been trying to find this everywhere! I think it’s sold out now. Darn.

    I’m NC35 too, & I thought it would be handy too, nothing out there, just.. Everyday, & easy.

  3. I am never really sure about LM, the colours are always a bit too warm for me, there is a hint of the terracotta along the same line as any BB that I try, and that just clashes with my thread veins. But the palette itself is well designed and the products look a decent size. Thanks for this. Jan x

  4. That’s so sweet of him to get you this!

    The colors are pretty, but nothing too special. Basic but nice contouring/highlighting colors.

  5. I desperately want one.. I know ill never use it but I think the combination is perfect for winter looks and paler skin!!
