Warning: empty beauty fund? Don’t keep on reading, cause you want to add these Laura Mercier’s Caviar Sticks to your beauty stash.
These creamy eyeshadows are available in 18 beautiful shades and come in a retractable twist-up stick. Perfect for keeping in your handbag. In mine you can now find the Laura Mercier Caviar Sticks Amethyst, Rosegold and Pink Opal.
Because of the texture these eyeshadows are extremely long-wearing, don’t crease and are oh so easy to apply. There’s no pulling of the eye lids, like some other sticks, these sticks really glide.
Also all of these Caviar Sticks are easy to blend, with your fingers or with a brush, and build. One piece of advice don’t wait too long to blend as it sets quickly and once set it won’t budge. Hence, the long-wearing part.
Don’t get me started on the colours. Simply put there are just amazing. Pigmented with a hint of shimmer (or metallic depending on how you want to define it), they are unique and different from what’s out there. Take the Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Amethyst for example. At first sight it looks more brown but it’s actually a combination of purple, brown and bronze and changes depending on the light fall. That changeant characteristic also applies to Rosegold and Pink Opal.
From top to bottom: Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Amethyst, Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Rosegold and Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Pink Opal.
Rosegold is not just a standard gold colour. It’s infused with pink which by the way makes it very wearable and changes depending on the light more gold or more pink. Whereas Rosegold is more on the warmer side Pink Opal is more on the cooler side. It’s also less opaque than the more darker colours, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t a gorgeous colour.
You might have guessed it, I’ve become a fan of these sticks with the result that I just want to get more colours. Although a Laura Mercier Caviar Stick costs £20.50 it’s definitely worth it.
