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.
