Laura Mercier Deep Garnet Eyeshadow

Laura Mercier Deep Garnet Eyeshadow ($22.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a deep, dark purple-burgundy with a soft, frosted finish and tiny flecks of ruby red shimmer. It is darker than MAC Deceit. The base of Deep Garnet is similar to MAC Shadowy Lady.  I think the intensity and depth of this particular shade is what really makes it sing.

The texture is divine; silky smooth, finely-milled, and so soft it almost feels like a cream. With a fabulous texture comes intense color payoff. It wears well without any concerns over an eyeshadow primer/base, but these are touted as being long-wearing with good adhesion on their own, which is where I’ve encountered a couple of issues. With Deep Garnet, it wore for eight hours without creasing, but there was slight fading.

The eyeshadow is richly pigmented with a decadent texture that's soft, smooth, and easy to blend. As long as you wear an eyeshadow primer, you won't have any problems with this shade.

  2. MC

    That is a beautiful shade..I MUST HAVE IT!!!

  3. Martyisblue

    In my opinion it looks similar to MAC Beauty Marked too..:D

  4. The shade in the pan reminds me of Bobbi Brown Black Berry from last year’s holiday collection. This is more pigmented though.

    I’m glad to see you doing more laura mercier reviews…. It’s my favorite brand!

  6. Ahhh this one is delicious! So rich, complex, and pigmented!

  7. Do I need another dark purple-burgundy? Nope, but I sure as heck want this! LOL.

  8. Rebecca

    On the Neiman Marcus website, the description says that the eyeshadow should only be used dry. Do you know why that is?

    That is one beautiful color. Unfortunately, burgundies tend to make me look washed out and severely bruised, but I’m sure some ladies out there will make it look great! :)

    Ooh, just found myself a Christmas present! It has so much depth, and that shade would look amazing on green eyes!

    I love this collection– but passed on this particular color, found it just too dark. Beautiful, yes, but not as wearable as crystal beige (same collection). After a certain age, creating your “smoky eye” doesnt make you look sultry, just tired. I dont need makeup to make (my tiredness) more noticeable! Love most LM make up though!

    oh man……:-D

    Christine did you find this warm or more neutral? (I love this but I do lean warm and I have to order online so I can’t swatch for myself). Thank you!

    When I bought MAC Beauty Marked, THIS is the type of color I wanted! That color is a dark grey (no matter what anyone says, in no way is it a purple) but looks purple in the pan. I NEED THIS COLOR.

  16. Ashley

    LOVE it! Reminds me of the purple in my D&G eyeshadow set. I’ll remember this for when I run out of the other!

  17. Barbara

    Wow, that is gorgeous! Have to hit Bloomies tomorrow for an exchange & will now have to skulk by the LM counter to check it out. Hope the hubby doesn’t mind Eggos for dinner this week. I think I may get into a lot of trouble checking this site every day, I am so weak, sigh…

  18. This looks very close to what I wanted MAC Beauty Marked to be. I might have to see it in stores.

  19. Jenny

    Ohhhhhhh, I want this! It’s exactly the color I’ve been looking for. Thanks!!

    I went to a Bloomie’s to swatch this today and the color was not as intense as this pic. Do you just swatch with your finger? It looks so beautiful here, but I was so disappointed in store.

  21. Julie

    Can you use it as an eyeliner?

  22. Rachael

    I love this colour! Does anyone know where i could get this in Australia? I have been trying to google but haven’t found anything yet :-(

    Appreciate anyones help :-)
