Review and FOTD: L.A. Colors Metallic Eyeshadow Palette Mesmerize

Mesmerize is my second L.A. Colors Metallic Eyeshadow Palette. You can find review for Soiree tagged ' L A Colors'. The casing and everything else pretty much same. However, I find that Mesmerize is less pigmented and less shimmery than Soiree. The Mesmerize shades is pretty much the opposite of Soiree. The colors, beige, green, purple, blue and grey, are muted colors.

Regarding texture, all the eyeshadow feels chalky, especially purple. The purple one also is the one that is least pigmented. I feel bad about that since it look lovely in pan. Mesmerize palette is harder to blend compared to Soiree.

Just like Soiree, top layer of the eyeshadow are much more shimmery, so for this review, I removed the top layer using cotton pad.

Without flash. This palette is not as pigmented Soiree.

Since Mesmerize is not that pigmented, I think this palette is okay for everyday use. The eyeshadow applied over E.L.F. Mineral Eyeshadow Primer. Will using UDPP instead would make the color show up more vibrant?

Beige in the inner corner, purple in the middle and blue in the outer corner blended into crease. Grey and green lined under eye.
When I first bought this palette, I have high expection for Mesmerize because of the lovely shade. However the poor texture and pigmentation is such a big turn off that I'm quite disappointed. I wouldn't not repurchase any of the L.A. Colors palette as I find E.L.F Brightening Color suits me better.


I applied the BB cream thinner than in Soiree review FOTD, and I noticed the blemishes much more visible here.

Skin79 Hot Pink BB cream, E.L.F. Studio Cream Eyeliner in Black, E.L.F. Essential Clarifying Pressed Powder in Honey, E.L.F. Mineral Eyeshadow Primer (not in pic), Maybelline Great Lash Waterproof in Very Black, Silky Girl Blusher Honeywood, L.A Colors Metallic Eyeshadow Palette Mesmerize, Clinique High Impact Honey Blush lipstick, Nivea Lip Care Rose Velvet.

Ha'ah kak, Soiree memang paling pigmented kalau banding kan dgn Tea Time & Mesmerize. Pigmentation lebih kurang ngan palette Tease. I bought it during 50% discount, RM 6 per palette. Sekarang dia jual RM 10 kat sini lebih murah bandingkan dgn harga seller lain
