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

Maybelline Color Tattoo 24HR in And On Bronze, Permanent Taupe And Eternal Bronze and Review and Swatches

I have finally picked up several shades of Maybelline’s Color Tattoo 24HR eye shadows some time ago so I am ready to share my opinion.

I was expecting  a lot from this product as everyone raves about the quality, and I was not disappointed.

I have got three shades to begin with:  Eternal Gold, Permanent Taupe, and And On Bronze.

They come in a glass jar and, in my opinion, the packaging looks great for the price, not worse than more expensive alternatives. As for the shades, the availability depends on the country. The shades that I have picked are all beautiful:

  • Eternal Gold is a  very shimmery gold, I’d say that the shimmer in this one is a bit too big for my taste.
  • On And On Bronze is a shade that a lot of people should like as it is very wearable metallic bronze. It should look amazing in summer.
  • Permanent Taupe, it is the most interesting shade in my opinion. It’s a
