Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colors: Orchid and Sugar Frost
Eyes are a focus this season and I want to share with swatches of the Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colors in Orchid and Sugar Frost.
"Inspired by Laura Mercier's cult classic Caviar Eye Liner, Caviar Stick Eye Colour offers a new technique to enhance the smoky eye look. In a range of eight beautiful shades, this creamy formula provides endless options for a flawless smoky eye. Each convenient stick is long-wearing, transfer- and crease-resistant. The colour glides onto lids and blends easily with a rich colour payoff."
I have used lots of shadow sticks over the last few years and I like them all but what I find different about this one is: (a) it glides on evenly over he lid, (b) stays blendable for enough time to fade out the edges, and (c) once it is dry it STAYS! It seems like all of the other stick cream eye shadow products do crease over time and these absolutely don't. In fact, I find I have to let my eye makeup remover sit on my eye a bit longer to break up the makeup.
Because of the great staying power I sometimes smudge these along the lash line. It makes for a simple, elegant look.
The other day I wore the shade Orchid on my lid and added a matte mauve shade in my crease and I had more than 10 people ask me what was on my lid--it is truly a stunner.
Another look that I love doing with Sugar Frost is applying it all over the lid and with my ring finger blending/fading the edges, then adding the Laura Mercier Creme Eye Liner in a sharp cat eye wing and lots of mascara. Another simple look, but the Caviar Sticks are so pretty they don't need to be a base for another color. They are definitely the star of the show.
In the swatches below Sugar Frost is on the left and Orchid is on the right.
Sugar Frost is a gorgeous champagne, white gold shade.
Orchid is lilac/lavender/pink. On my lids it reads more purple but the pink undertones are definitely there.
Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colors are so impressive that I wish I had more adjectives in my arsenal that are more fitting. I hope that my photos speak for themselves, but I know that you would be even more impressed with these in person. Two thumbs way up and 5 out of 5 stars. Caviar Sticks trump all other eye shadow sticks in my opinion and I don't think I will ever look back.
