Laura Mercier Gilded Gold, Orchid, Plum, Seashell Caviar Sticks

Laura Mercier Gilded Gold Caviar Stick Eye Colour ($28.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a dirtied, medium yellowed gold with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had semi-sheer color payoff in one stroke, and it was buildable to mostly opaque coverage but was more challenging to blend for me. It seemed prone to skipping on the skin, and it was one that applied a lot better with a separate brush (try a flat, synthetic one). It wore well for nine hours before creasing. Anastasia Metallic (P, $12.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Urban Decay Blitz (LE, $19.00) is brighter (95% similar). Colour Pop Get Lucky (P, $5.00) is warmer (95% similar). Colour Pop Cheap Date (LE, $5.00) is lighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Honey (DC, $18.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Makeup Geek Fortune Teller (P, $9.99) is brighter, more pigmented, warmer (90% similar). Kat Von D Thrasher (P, $21.00) is brighter, more pigmented, better quality (90% similar). Chanel Rêve d'Orient #3 (LE) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty About Last Night No. 02 (LE) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Sugarpill Goldilux (P, $13.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Too Faced Twinkle (LE, $16.00) is darker (90% similar). Urban Decay Goldmine (LE, $19.00) is cooler (90% similar). Maybelline Bold Gold (P, $6.99) is darker, more muted (90% similar). Buxom 24KT Stilettos (P, $12.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Too Faced Instigator (LE, $16.00) is darker (90% similar). Estee Lauder Naked Gold (P, $25.00) is more shimmery, darker, more muted (90% similar). MAC Old Gold (P, $21.00) is warmer (90% similar). Sephora Girls Night Out (03) (P, $12.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). NARS Iskandar (P, $25.00) is darker (85% similar). Make Up For Ever #11 (P, $23.00) is more shimmery, cooler (85% similar).

Laura Mercier Art of Colour Eye & Cheek Palette

Laura Mercier Art of Colour Eye & Cheek Palette ($79.00 for 0.83 oz.) includes eight eyeshadows, one blush, and a full-sized mascara and is a Nordstrom Anniversary Exclusive. It’s a disappointing palette; I think it looks and swatches better than it applies, and it’s a palette that should be used with an eyeshadow primer to minimize some of the issues that I experienced (like adhesion and longevity). Some of the eyeshadows ran a little drier, one was quite firm and difficult to use altogether, while the blush was horrendous. I would have also preferred to see them ditch the mascara and drop the price.

Sneak Peek: Laura Mercier Art of Colour Eye & Cheek Palette Photos & Swatches

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen my haul of Nordstrom Anniversary Sale beauty exclusives, which I photographed for the most part, but I still have a whole palette to swatch and then almost all of it still to test, so it’s going to be a bit. That leads me to: sneak peeks! The first I have ready to share with you is Laura Mercier Art of Colour Eye & Cheek Palette ($79.00), which includes eight eyeshadows and one blush, plus a mascara. I wish they had skipped the mascara and gone with a lower price.
