The Weekend Post – Laura Mercier Shadow’s

I recently wrote about the fact that Laura Mercier had returned to Dubai, after a long hiatus. Naturally, I couldn’t just swing by the counter for a look without losing the run of myself and picking up a product (or two). I’ve been a massive fan of the metallic cream shadow’s for some time and previously owned and loved Rose Gold, so I decided to repurchase. It’s a gorgeous erm, metallic rose gold shade (my descriptive skill’s are on fire today) that lasts for ages, both on the lid and in terms of product size and value for money.

I also had a bit of a moon over the amazing baked shadow’s on offer and fell in love with Black Karat , a delicious dirty dark green with flecks of bronze and black running through it. The payoff is excellent and I’ve been wearing it as a light wash over the lid during the day and feeling all sultry and moody, which is no mean feat when you’ve just given birth to an 8lb baby!

Here’s the swatch pic above also to give you a general idea of how they look on the skin. Having visited the counter, the makeup wheels in my mind have naturally been set in motion towards future purchases. I’m thinking of filling my boots with more Tinted Moisturiser’s and perhaps another bronzer once I’ve run out of my beloved Chanel one, we’ll have to wait and see! Have you bought anything from Laura Mercier lately?

    Hi Simone, I just bought Black Carat from London and a shadow called African Violet. I love their ‘shimmer’ bronzer, so subtle on my pale skin

    I’ve drooled over that Black Karat many times! I have the Black Gold eyeliner, which is gorge but so soft you def need to chill it before sharpening as I lost half of it in the bin!

    LM is my all time fave makeup brand. Just fallen in love with the Stardust powder again, which I think you already have. I keep the Creme Smooth foundation for when I need my skin to look perfect & use the secret concealer most days. Still have my colour wardrobe (3rd year!) of eyeshadows, blush & lips & still love them all.
