My Experience with Laura Mercier Amethyst Caviar Stick Eye Colour:
This eyeshadow comes in a retractable pen style packaging which makes it very convenient to use, and of course travel with. There is no hassle of sharpening which I like. The cap closes securely.
Texture & Pigmentation:
These stick eyeshadows are super creamy and smooth. They can be blended with both – fingertips or a synthetic brush, hence they are also beginner friendly. They do set quickly, so it is best to do one eye at a time. Even the shimmery shades are smooth and not gritty. The pigmentation is amazing. One swipe gives you full opaque pigmentation. There is absolutely no tug or skip, or even a need to layer these.
I like the fact that the shimmer does not cause any fall out and adheres to the lids securely even without a primer. In fact there is rarely any need for primer with these eye sticks. These eye sticks can be worn alone or topped with a powder eyeshadow. The stick’s shape makes it easy to smudge the shadow on the lower lash line as well.
Shade & Finish:
The shade “Amethyst” is described as a soft mauve with purple undertone, which is true. It has a hint of taupe along with mauve too. This shade does impart a shimmery/wet look to the eyelids. This shade works great for both daytime and nighttime wear. It is such a versatile and flattering color for all skin tones. If you do not know what shade to get from this line, you cannot go wrong with the shade Amethyst.
The staying power is amazing. There is absolutely no fading or creasing even at 8 hour mark. The shimmer does not travel all over my face. The eyeshadow is easy to remove with an oil based makeup remover.
I absolutely love these Laura mercier Caviar Sticks. They are so foolproof that even people who consider themselves not good with makeup will find them easy to use. They have amazing staying power and come in a beautiful array of shades. I highly recommend this.
In the EOTD, I have applied the shade Amethyst all over the lid and blended with fingertips. Then I applied some purple eyeliner and mascara for a easy peasy eye look.
