Laura Mercier Pine Bronze Sateen Eye Colour

Laura Mercier Pine Bronze Sateen Eye Colour

Laura Mercier Pine Bronze Sateen Eye Colour ($22.00 for 0.09 oz.) is described as a “smoky green with bronze shimmer.” The Sateen formula is designed to be a “lightweight eyeshadow with a creamy powder texture” with “intense, luminous color” that has “superior blending” and “long-wearing, crease-resistant application.”

It’s an olive green with subtle, pale gold shimmer strewn through it, but it has more of a satin sheen than it is shimmery. The level of pigmentation is very nice–smooth, mostly even color that is opaque with little need to build the color to get there. Like Cedar, it wears best over a primer, but the product claims long-lasting wear without mention of a primer. It wears for about seven hours before I start noticing subtle creasing but more noticeable fading.

Inglot #419 is a frosted, metallic variation of this color, but because of those two characteristics, I would not call them dupes at all. The color is more like Urban Decay Urb, but Urb lacks pigmentation and has texture issues. It is very similar to Burberry Khaki.

B
I would still recommend this--overall--as long as you wear an eyeshadow primer underneath, which I imagine most of us do already! This product lost the majority of points from failing to be long-wearing and crease-resistant on its own as claimed.

  1. What an interesting color. I usually love greens, but this is too live for me.

    Not sure I’m feeling this color. Almost looks like a baby poop green to me. I think it’s one of those colors that works better as an ‘ugly’ nail polish shade than an eye shadow, but obviously to each their own.

    Looks gorgeous!

    I like it in the pan but maybe instead of it being a “satin sheen” then maybe it should have been “shimmery” to bring out more of the bronze. I actually prefer more of a satin sheen but I think the formula for this e/s could be better. It looks pretty plain and with shade of green I think you really need to make it special. However, I’ll still check it out in person before completely rejecting it. :)

    I’m sure the pigmentation’s awesome, but damn, that colour is fug. :/

  6. Wow, I wasn’t expecting this color to have so much depth! Not something I’d wear enough to justify purchasing, but definitely an interesting color.

    I got this over the weekend and LOVE it! I have a hard time finding greens I can wear – I have green eyes with gold in them and most greens look ridiculous on me (usually too much blue in them). This one is PERFECT! It looks great with the Antique Jade eyeliner in this collection.

    Christine, I miss your tutorials! I feel like I haven’t seen one in so long!

  9. It looks beautiful.
