Laura Mercier Caviar Stick in Smoke

Monday, November 18, 2013

Despite hearing rave reviews, I had yet to try the Laura Mercier cream eyeshadow sticks until recently. I was browsing in Nordstrom when I saw this beauty in their Fall 2013 collection and I immediately had to have it. I love a one-step eye. It is fun to play with eye makeup, but it is so practical to have one product that can literally do it all. Just line the eye lightly (this stuff is seriously pigmented and creamy) and then blend with your favorite blending brush (I love the Mac pencil brush for this). The end result will be a simple smokey eye that is perfectly day appropriate. Just add mascara and you are done! 

The color is in Smoke, a dark gray color that looks almost black on the eye, except a little softer and therefore more appropriate for day. It also really makes my blue eyes pop!

The Mac pencil brush can smoke out any liner you own (given that it is creamier) and make the look more smokey/sultry and less defined.

What is your favorite product for one-step eyes?
