Looking forward to......Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colours

I first spotted the Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour on The Non-Blonde's blog.  I was immediately drawn to the colours and finish, especially after my renewing my love for my MAC Greasepaint stick. Gaia's awesome artwork with the pencils didn't hurt either!

These eyeshadow pencils won't be release until August but I had a sneaky peak at them the other day and they were everything I hoped for. I was able to swatch the shades Amethyst, Cocoa and Steel and despite my rubbish-without-daylight camera, I actually managed to get a few snaps.




I think of the three shades I swatched, Amethyst is the most appealing for me. I had an almost duochrome quality which was very pretty. I think both Cocoa and Steel would be great for more sultry looks.


I have to mention the staying power of these eyeshadows. I swatched these in the early evening and the lasted until bedtime with no fading or wear, despite a sweltering train ride home. They didn't come off when I washed my hands and I was stunned to see they were still visible in the morning! These will definitely require a waterproof eye makeup remover to shift. I'm sad that these won't be out before my camping trip as I think they would make a perfect travel makeup item.

There are eight shades altogether, the ones not shown here are Plum, Sapphire, Smoke, Jungle and Khaki. They will be priced £20.50/€30 and although they're not cheap, I think they're well worth considering for the rich colour and staying power. The hardest part for me will be whittling down my list!


  1. As you already know I adore these and can't wait to try them. Went hunting at the weekend but couldn't find them in my local store. I'll struggle to choose too!
