Swatched – Laura Mercier Haul

Laura Mercier Haul Eye Shadow Liner Make Up Beauty Swatches

So I thought it was about time I shared with you a few bits and pieces I got from Laura Mercier recently. The baked eye shadow and the kohl eye pencil were Christmas presents from Mike, which was great as I very nearly bought them whilst I was in San Francisco before Christmas. And the eye shadow trio was from my recent SpaceNK haul.

This is my first foray into Laura Mercier and I have to say I’m a bit on the fence at the moment. I LOVE the kohl eye pencil and the solo eye shadow but I was really disappointed with the eye shadow trio, but we’ll get on to why in a moment.

Next up there’s the Kohl Eye Pencil in Black Gold.

Laura Mercier Haul Eye Shadow Liner Make Up Beauty SwatchesI’ve been using this on my waterline as a change from the usual black liner. I find it really brings out the golden flecks in my blue eyes and imagine it would be equally flattering to brown eyed girls.

Finally there’s the Petite Eye Trio in Smoky Taupes. I bought this on a whim as it was reduced to just £10 in the SpaceNK sale and honestly kinda regret it. None of the colours are really stand out shades.

Laura Mercier Haul Eye Shadow Liner Make Up Beauty SwatchesI found Twilight Grey to be quite chalky and Nica is a really chunky glitter which doesn’t seem to stay put no matter how much primer you use. Which just leaves Sable which is a nice mid-toned brown taupe, but nothing I don’t already have covered with my Urban Decay Naked Palettes.
