Recently we’ve seen quite a lot of colorful makeup collections, such as gorgeous Dior Trianon collection, Paul & Joe My Secret Garden collection, NARS High Seize and Final Cut collection and not to forget the forever princessy Thumbelina collection from Jill Stuart. We get the picture that Spring is always full of live and vivid colors, but at the same time behind those colorful colors are the neutral or even “basic boring” colors. Without them, the colorful colors won’t be as pretty. Today we have two of these from Laura Mercier, Metallic Cream Eye Color Copper Sunrise Cream Eye Liner Graphite.
Don’t be fooled by the tiny size of packaging, these Metallic Cream Eye Colors will last you forever. Just a little dab goes a long way especially with the easy to squeeze tube design and small opening. You get to control how much product is needed and it never goes waste. Copper Sunrise is indeed a basic color but sure is beautiful on the eyes. It leaves a coppery shimmer on the lids that can compete with sunlight. The color is totally blendable, layerable and buildable, which makes you transfer a subtle wash of daytime look to a dramatic night look in seconds.
Cream Eye Liner Graphite now becomes my go to liner when I desire the rich softer finish on my eyes. The creamy gel texture of this liner is so easy to apply, with a good angled liner brush it’s nearly mistake-proof. It’s ultra soft and smooth that doesn’t drag on the delicate eye area. Thanks to its water-proof, smudge-proof and crease-proof formula, this liner is long lasting and comfortable for a full 8 hours. It does not dry out, nor does it get greasy over time. And the blue green toned deep gray color is a great alternative to the black liner.
Here’s the swatch of both products on the canvas of Laura Mercier Cream Smooth Foundation Blush Ivory and Loose Setting Powder in Translucent (see post here.) Don’t you love the soft warm sheen emitted from Copper Sunrise. Before I forget to mention, the Cream Eye Color is also water-proof so both products are all season safe, even on the summer beach and in the swimming pool.
Without fancy packaging and eye catching colors, Laura Mercier Eye Color Copper Sunrise and Liner Graphite are keeper for any makeup stash. They’re basic enough yet essential for a successful eye makeup. The colors are easy to pair with other products and beautiful on their own. The application is simple and the effect is long lasting.
