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

Laura Mercier Gilded Gold Caviar Stick Eye Colour
Laura Mercier Gilded Gold Caviar Stick Eye Colour

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. Urban Decay Blitz (LE, $19.00) is brighter (95% similar). Colour Pop Get Lucky (P, $5.00) is warmer (95% similar). MAC Unwind (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Anastasia Metallic (P, $12.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Colour Pop Cheap Date (LE, $5.00) is lighter (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). Marc Jacobs Beauty About Last Night No. 02 (LE) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). MAC Old Gold (P, $21.00) is warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay Goldmine (LE, $19.00) is cooler (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). Sugarpill Goldilux (P, $13.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Too Faced Twinkle (LE, $16.00) is darker (90% similar). Maybelline Bold Gold (P, $6.99) is darker, more muted (90% similar). Make Up For Ever #11 (P, $23.00) is more shimmery, cooler (85% similar). Sleek MakeUP Sunset #5 (P, $9.99) is brighter, warmer (85% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Laura Mercier Orchid Caviar Stick Eye Colour ($28.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a softened, light-medium lavender with warm undertones and a frosted finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a fairly soft, blendable consistency that lasted for eight hours before showing signs of creasing. I wish it had been a little creamier in consistency to make for better application. Giorgio Armani #14 (P, $32.00) is lighter (95% similar). Chanel Utopia (96) (LE, $32.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Lilacked (LE, $22.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Anastasia Macaroon (P, $12.00) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Laura Mercier Plum Caviar Stick Eye Colour ($28.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a blackened plum purple with warm undertones and a soft, sprinkling of plum shimmer. It had mostly opaque pigmentation with some creaminess, but it was a challenge to blend due to it drying down very quickly–I didn’t feel like I had much time to work with it before the edges became unmovable. Once it set, it stayed on well for nine hours. Tarina Tarantino Fantastical #5 (P) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Deceit (LE, $21.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Giorgio Armani Sunset (15) (LE, $39.00) is cooler (90% similar). L'Oreal Smoldering Plum (P, $7.99) is cooler (90% similar). Chanel Tisse Cambon #4 (P) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). Hourglass Exposure #4 (P) is more muted, warmer (90% similar). Disney by Sephora Wonder by Wonder (LE) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Smashbox Cabernet (LE) is lighter (90% similar). Makeup Geek Drama Queen (P, $6.00) is warmer (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Black Violet (P, $24.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Colour Pop Doe-a-Deer (DC, $5.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Young Punk (P, $21.00) is cooler (90% similar). Dior Golden Shock #1 (LE) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Uncut (P, $19.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Tarte Glamorous (LE) is less shimmery (90% similar). Fyrinnae Alchemist's Curse (P, $6.80) is more shimmery (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Laura Mercier Seashell Caviar Stick Eye Colour ($28.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a brightened, white gold with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had good pigmentation in a single stroke, and this shade was more like I remember the formula being: creamy without being too slippery, so it applied with even, smooth coverage on the lid and then wore all day long (nine hours)–but it was still blendable and easy to use. The others weren’t as foolproof. Makeup Geek Voltage (P, $6.00) is lighter (95% similar). Make Up For Ever D416 Crystalline Yellow (P, $21.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). LORAC Unlocked (P, $19.00) is brighter (95% similar). MAC In the Meadow #2 (LE, $21.00) is warmer (95% similar). Urban Decay Snow (LE, $19.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). MAC Fresh Blade (LE, $16.00) is lighter (95% similar). Milani Bella Chiffon (28) (P, $4.49) is more muted (95% similar). LORAC Quartz (LE, $19.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). MAC Lily White (2014) (LE, $21.00) is darker (90% similar). Colour Pop High Tide (DC, $5.00) is less shimmery, more muted (90% similar). Viseart Champagne (P) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Anastasia Legend (P, $12.00) is less shimmery, darker, more muted (90% similar). Becca Chardonnay (LE) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Sephora Minx (LE) is warmer (85% similar). Chanel Rêve d'Orient #2 (LE) is lighter (85% similar). Anastasia Soft Gold (P, $12.00) is lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

FORMULA SUMMARY | Laura Mercier Gilded Gold Caviar Stick Eye Colour ($28.00 for 0.05 oz.) is touted as “long-wearing, transfer- and crease-resistant” with “rich color payoff.” My experience has been that the more neutral shades (browns, taupes, beiges) tend to out-perform the colored ones.
