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.
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.
