If you saw my 'What I got for Christmas' video over on my You tube channel you most likely saw that I was very lucky and received one of the Laura Mercier Metallic Creme Eye Colours in 'Alloy'. It is a beautiful product and I have to say I am in love!
The best way I can describe the colour is a taupe/brown with a teeny tiny hint of silver that sounds a bit strange I'm sorry, I'm not the best at describing colours as you will probably have guessed by now, I will let the swatch photograph I am going to insert later in the post speak for itself.
I was so excited to receive this product as I had wanted it for a long long time, Cole has it and I had tried hers and loved it, it is so easy to apply and looks lovely, I wore it on one of my video's recently and I got lots of compliments on my make up, and all I wore was this and mascara, so simple but so effective at the same time. I apply mine by putting a small amount on the back of my hand and then using either my ring finger or a flat eye shadow brush, I use the MAC 239, I apply it to my eyelid and then I blend out the edges using my MAC 217 brush, I then run the 239 under my lower lash line using what's left on the brush. I apply mascara and I'm done, as a well know meerkat would say, simples!
The colour is beautiful, it doesn't crease at all and has amazing colour pay off and staying power, I applied mine at 9 o'clock in the morning and it still looked as good at 2 o'clock the next morning when I took it off, I cannot recommend this product enough, it is absolutely beautiful and so quick and easy, and you only need a tiny amount meaning it will last you a very long time. It can be worn alone or as a base for other eye shadows, it is waterproof and non greasy, and above all it is amazing.
The Laura Mericer Metallic Creme Eye Colour retails between £16.50 and £18.50 and comes in 5 different colours here in the UK,
Alloy - Taupe/Brown with silver
Burnished Copper - A Brown/Red with shimmer
Gold - A beautiful true Gold
Platinum - A lovely Champagne colour
Rose Gold - A Pinky/Gold shimmery colour
Although they are quite an expensive product I feel they are definitely worth the money as you hardly need to apply any product at all and the colour payoff and staying power is amazing, and it is such an easy product to wear and easy to apply. I would love to try some of the other colours, Rose Gold is beautiful but I'm not sure it would suit me, in fact I'd love them all and can see me making a cheeky online purchase soon, but sssshhhh don't tell anyone, if you would like to make a cheeky online purchase too you can find the Creme Eye Colours online.
