Laura Mercier Metallic Creme Eye Colour Review and Swatches

I am a huge fan of cream eye shadows and had these for almost a year already, so I have no idea why I never wrote about them.

But it’s better late than never, so today I want to tell you about Laura Mercier’s Metallic Crème Eye Colour (£ 18.50/$22).

I actually have three shades but, since one (Malachite) was a limited edition shade, will show you only two. I’ve got them in a set, so  originally these eye shadows are bigger than those that I have.

Platinum – shimmering champagne, Rose Gold – shimmery rose gold

Light frost eye shadows are a big NO for me, so I was a bit worried about these shades. But Laura Mercier knows how to do a nice  light metallic shade without it looking too frosted and glittery. It is shimmery, yes, but it is very wearable and, I could even say  - subtle.

The formula is really nice, non-greasy, lightweight and, most importantly, you can get a sheer or full-on effect. I actually love applying these eye shadows with my fingers as such method allows to get a very thin layer which does not sit on top of skin but blends it beautifully.

I love using Platinum and Rose Gold all over the lid with a dark shade in the outer corner.  Although I usually wear a dark shade all over the lid, a lot of my (girl) friends complimented on my look and even asked what I was wearing…

The staying power is also impressive. On me Laura Mercier Metallic Creme Eye Colour  stay for the whole working day without any primers but I do not have a creasing problem in general.

The only little thing that I don’t like is that I often get more product than I need. But on the other hand, such package is more hygienic than the pots.

I would love to try these on a mature lady to see if it works for, too. But so far I am loving these for the brides.

Metallic Creme Eye Colour eye shadows are really nice so I may have to get Burnished Cooper for my personal makeup bag. And I’d like to see more darker shades in the future, please.

  1. Oh great, more cream shadows to tempt me! I prefer packaging like this as well. Much more hygienic and I guess it’ll dry out slower (or so I hope)!

    I’m a “mature” (well most of the time….) and I love these!

    These look very pretty and I like the hygienic packaging too.
