My Experience with Laura Mercier Tuxedo Caviar Stick Eye Colour :
Comes in a very convenient to use retractable tube. Easy to use and travel with. No hassle of sharpening.
This eye colors glide on so smoothly with the slightest touch. There is no pressing or rubbing hard to get color. It goes on with full color in 1 swipe like a true crème shadow and it is very easy to blend it out. It does not set immediately hence you have more than enough time to manipulate it the way you want it to.
The shade Tuxedo is described as a matte black and it is true to its name. There are no shimmer particles in this. When blended out on the lid it does not look so harsh dark black but instead looks a deep smoked black which makes it a perfect base for black smokey eyes or to top with different deeper shades like navy or olive to make them have that rich deep hue. I myself haven’t perfected the art of black smokey eye yet hence, I use this color in lots of different ways.
This product can also be used as a kohl/ waterliner and it applied color there without any tug. It does not smear under the eyes and gives a rich black color just like regular kohls. I also use it to tight line my eye. It does not irritate my eyes.
I also use this as a eyeliner. Since the edge is quite thick it is difficult to get a thineyeliner ,I just use any regular eyeliner brush and get some product on the brush just like I would do for gel liners. When I use it in this way I am careful to just dab a black eye shadow on the liner just to set it with the same brush.
I can also use it directly from the stick as a smoked out liner under the bottom lashline or smudged out eyelid liner. In other words, a matte black product can be very versatile to use.
This product has very good staying power it stays a good 7-8 hours even on my oily lids with minimal fading even without a primer underneath. The longevity is even more when you top it off with a powder shadow.It stayed 4-5 hours on my waterline before starting to fade.It is crease-proof.
