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. MAC Unwind (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Urban Decay Blitz (P, $19.00) is brighter (95% similar). Colour Pop Get Lucky (P, $5.00) is warmer (95% similar). Anastasia Metallic (P, $12.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Chanel Rêve d'Orient #3 (LE, ) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Colour Pop Cheap Date (LE, $5.00) is lighter (90% similar). Makeup Geek Fortune Teller (P, $9.99) is brighter, more pigmented, warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay Honey (DC, $18.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Buxom 24KT Stilettos (P, $12.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Too Faced Twinkle (LE, $16.00) is darker (90% similar). Sugarpill Goldilux (P, $13.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Kat Von D Thrasher (P, $21.00) is brighter, more pigmented, better quality (90% similar). MAC Old Gold (P, $21.00) is warmer (90% similar). Estee Lauder Naked Gold (P, $25.00) is more shimmery, darker, more muted (90% similar). Too Faced Instigator (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). Sleek MakeUP Sunset #5 (P, $9.99) is brighter, warmer (85% similar). Make Up For Ever #11 (P, $23.00) is more shimmery, cooler (85% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty About Last Night No. 02 (LE, ) is more shimmery, lighter (90% 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. Kylie Cosmetics North Star (LE, ) is more shimmery (95% similar). Giorgio Armani #14 (P, $32.00) is lighter (95% similar). Colour Pop Double Date (LE, $5.00) is more shimmery, cooler (95% similar). BH Cosmetics Foil Eyes 2 #11 (P, ) is more shimmery, lighter (90% 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. MAC Deceit (LE, $21.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Tarina Tarantino Fantastical #5 (P, ) is lighter (95% similar). Giorgio Armani Sunset (15) (LE, $39.00) is cooler (90% similar). Fyrinnae Alchemist's Curse (P, $6.80) is more shimmery (90% similar). Dior Golden Shock #1 (LE, ) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). MAC Young Punk (P, $21.00) is cooler (90% similar). Makeup Geek Drama Queen (P, $6.00) is warmer (90% similar). Hourglass Exposure #4 (P, ) is more muted, warmer (90% similar). Tarte Glamorous (LE, ) is less shimmery (90% similar). Urban Decay Uncut (P, $19.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Colour Pop Doe-a-Deer (DC, $5.00) is lighter (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Black Violet (P, $24.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Smashbox Cabernet (LE, ) is lighter (90% similar). Disney by Sephora Wonder by Wonder (LE, ) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Chanel Tisse Cambon #4 (P, ) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). L'Oreal Smoldering Plum (P, $7.99) is cooler (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). Urban Decay Snow (LE, $19.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). MAC Fresh Blade (LE, $16.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC In the Meadow #2 (LE, $21.00) is warmer (95% similar). Make Up For Ever D416 Crystalline Yellow (P, $21.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Milani Bella Chiffon (28) (P, $4.49) is more muted (95% similar). Becca Moonstone (LE, ) is warmer (95% similar). LORAC Unlocked (P, $19.00) is brighter (95% similar). LORAC Quartz (LE, $19.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). Colour Pop High Tide (DC, $5.00) is less shimmery, more muted (90% similar). MAC Lily White (2014) (LE, $21.00) is darker (90% similar). Anastasia Legend (P, $12.00) is less shimmery, darker, more muted (90% similar). Viseart Champagne (P, ) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Zoeva Yet to Come (P, ) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Chanel Rêve d'Orient #2 (LE, ) is lighter (85% similar). Becca Chardonnay (LE, ) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Anastasia Soft Gold (P, $12.00) is lighter (85% similar). Sephora Minx (LE, ) is warmer (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.

Laura Mercier Art of Colour Eye & Cheek Palette

Laura Mercier Art of Colour Eye & Cheek Palette
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.

Bellini is a light-medium, pink-coral with gold shimmer. This was such an awful product; I have no idea why the brand’s blushes are dry and almost chunky in texture, when their eyeshadows are much smoother and more finely-milled. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque color coverage that blends decently, but it looks a little dry on my skin. If I applied it with a damp brush or over still-drying liquid or cream foundation, it looked better. On, it lasted for six and a half hours before fading. Benefit Bella Bamba (DC, $28.00) is brighter. MAC Star Wonder (LE, $30.00) is darker. MAC Springsheen (P, $21.00) is more shimmery, warmer. NARS Orgasm (P, $30.00) is more shimmery, lighter, warmer. Tarina Tarantino Feather (P, $25.00) is warmer. Too Faced Something About Berry (P, $30.00) is darker, warmer. Sleek MakeUP Rose Gold (P, $6.99) is more shimmery. Benefit Bella Bamba (Palette) (P, $28.00) is warmer. Smashbox Carnation (LE, ) is lighter, warmer. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Burnished Rose is a muted, medium-dark brown with a frosted finish. It had good color payoff with a soft, but almost dry, consistency. This shade didn’t layer well with other eyeshadows, as it didn’t seem to stick as well, but it was better when applied as the first layer (onto bare skin). It wore for seven and a half hours on me. Laura Mercier Brown Sugar (LE, $23.00) is . Benefit Dandy Brandy (P, $18.00) is darker. Inglot #421 (P, $6.00) is darker. MAC Sable (P, $16.00) is more shimmery. MAC Divine Decadence (P, $16.00) is darker. MAC Her Cocoa #4 (LE, $16.00) is darker. Too Faced Brown Sugar (LE, $16.00) is darker. LORAC Mocha (P, ) is more shimmery, lighter. Kat Von D Papilio (P, ) is less shimmery. Make Up For Ever ME612 Silver Brown (P, $21.00) is more shimmery, lighter. LORAC Maroon (LE, ) is warmer. Colour Pop Mooning (P, $5.00) is darker, more muted. Tarte Pretty (LE, ) is brighter, warmer. Cle de Peau Satin Moon #2 (P, ) is more shimmery, lighter. Urban Decay Lost (P, $18.00) is more shimmery. First 15 dupes listed, see more: See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Gunmetal is a medium-dark gray with cool undertones and a frosted finish. It had good pigmentation with a soft, lightly drier and dusty consistency that applied decently to bare lids. It lasted for seven and a half hours before fading. Urban Decay Redemption (LE, $18.00) is darker. Kat Von D Piaf (LE, ) is more shimmery, lighter. LORAC Slate (P, ) is darker. MAC Graphic Style (LE, $16.00) is lighter. MAC Diesel (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker. Giorgio Armani #21 (LE, $33.00) is darker. Buxom Cool Caviar (P, $12.00) is lighter. Milani Bella Gray (10) (P, $4.49) is lighter. Smashbox Obsidian (P, ) is less shimmery. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Enigma #2 (P, ) is lighter. Make Up For Ever ME108 Steel (P, $21.00) is darker. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Parisienne #1 (LE, ) is darker. Tarina Tarantino Silver Shoes (LE, ) is darker. Kat Von D Santeria (LE, ) is darker. Makeup Geek Galaxy (P, $5.99) is warmer. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Morning Dew is a subtly warm-toned, pink beige with a matte finish. It had good pigmentation with a really silky, finely-milled texture that could get a little powdery in the pan as it is quite soft. It wore for seven and a half hours on me. Smashbox Naked (P, ) is darker. Dior Golden Shock #4 (LE, ) is darker. Tarte Palace of Versaille (LE, ) is darker. Too Faced Powdered Sugar (LE, $16.00) is darker. Inglot #356 (P, $6.00) is darker. Too Faced Coconut Crème (P, $16.00) is cooler. Tarte Super Mom (LE, ) is lighter. bareMinerals Chance (P, ) is lighter, brighter. Urban Decay Walk of Shame (P, $18.00) is cooler. MAC Blanc Type (P, $16.00) is lighter. Too Faced Snow Angel (LE, $16.00) is . Too Faced Dainty (LE, $16.00) is darker, cooler. Laura Mercier Buttercream (P, $23.00) is warmer. Too Faced Egg Nog (LE, $16.00) is darker. Too Faced Cream Colored Ponies (LE, $16.00) is more pigmented. First 15 dupes listed, see more: See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

African Violet is a warm, plummy purple with larger gold sparkle and shimmer. It’s part of the permanent range, and it’s been included in past palette releases from the brand. It’s an interesting shade, but it seems to have production issues; you’ll see a lot of love it or hate it kind of reviews. This was the smoothest and softest version I’ve come across, but the shimmer separates slightly when you start to blend it on the lid still. It lasted for seven hours on me before fading. Smashbox Amethyst (P, ) is darker. Too Faced Passion (P, ) is more shimmery, lighter. Kat Von D Love Letter (P, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker. Colour Pop Prickly Pear (LE, $5.00) is more shimmery, cooler. bareMinerals Catch Me If (P, ) is less shimmery, cooler. MAC Pinkluxe #3 (P, ) is more shimmery, cooler. theBalm #2 (P, $6.50) is lighter, cooler, less shimmery. MAC Neo Nebula (LE, $21.00) is lighter, cooler. Urban Decay Bordello (P, $18.00) is cooler. theBalm A1 (LE, $16.00) is lighter, less pigmented, less shimmery. theBalm rem (P, $16.00) is cooler. Fyrinnae Meerkat (Pressed) (P, $8.25) is darker, brighter. Fyrinnae Meerkat (P, $6.80) is darker, brighter, more pigmented, less shimmery. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Vanilla Kiss is a light beige with a satiny sheen. It had semi-sheer coverage (it just blends in with my skin tone) with a really firm texture, which I think is why the color payoff was subpar. I had really had to jab at it to get any powder to dislodge from the surface, so this was the big dud in the palette. It wore for seven hours before fading on me. Divergent Serene Vanilla (LE, ) is less shimmery. bareMinerals Celebrate (LE, ) is darker. MAC Smokeluxe #1 (P, ) is more shimmery. MAC Brownluxe #1 (P, ) is darker. MAC Mylar (P, $16.00) is less shimmery, brighter. Kat Von D Lucius (P, ) is less shimmery. Tarte Chantilly Lace (LE, ) is warmer. YSL Avant Garde #2 (P, ) is brighter. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Cappuccino is a muted, medium brown that leans slightly taupe-y but still pulls lighter and warmer than taupe, I think. It had a matte finish that was really smooth and finely-milled. The texture felt silky and a smidgen powdery in the pan but looked good applied. The color lasted for almost eight hours on me. MAC Omega (P, $16.00) is darker. Kat Von D Vanish (P, ) is warmer. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Lover #7 (LE, ) is darker. theBalm Score (LE, $16.00) is darker. Hello Kitty Hot Cocoa (LE, ) is darker. Make Up For Ever M540 Gray Beige (P, $21.00) is darker. Becca Ombre Nudes #3 (P, ) is darker, warmer. bareMinerals Trench Coat (LE, ) is darker. LORAC Latte (P, ) is warmer. Smashbox Taupe (P, ) is darker. Buxom Star Treatment (P, $12.00) is darker. Too Faced Nudie (P, $16.00) is warmer. Too Faced Cashmere Bunny (P, $16.00) is darker, warmer. See comparison swatches/ compare dupes side-by-side.

Pink Haze is a peachy-pink with warm undertones and a frosted sheen. It had good pigmentation with a soft, smooth consistency that applied well to the skin and lasted for eight hours before fading. NARS Goddess (P, $28.00) is darker. Sugarpill Kitten Parade (P, ) is darker, cooler. Viseart Pont des Arts (P, ) is less shimmery. Zoeva Sweeter End (P, ) is darker, more muted. Cle de Peau Baby Universe #2 (P, ) is darker. bareMinerals Future (P, ) is warmer. Make Up For Ever I524 Pinky Beige (P, $21.00) is less shimmery. Make Up For Ever I520 Pinky Sand (P, $21.00) is more shimmery, warmer. Urban Decay X (P, $18.00) is darker, cooler. MAC Jest (P, $16.00) is more shimmery, warmer. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Brown Sugar is a softened, medium-dark brown with warmer, yellow undertones and gold sparkle. It had semi-sheer coverage and the glitter didn’t bind with the powder, so it got everywhere but your eye. A lot of it was trapped in the brush or fell below my lid when I was blending it out, so there wasn’t a lot of fall out during wear as there just wasn’t much glitter to fall! I would recommend a tackier base to use with this one. It lasted seven hours on me. Laura Mercier Burnished Rose (LE, $23.00) is . NYX Bedroom Eyes (P, $6.00) is more shimmery, lighter. Too Faced Cocoa Chili (P, $16.00) is less shimmery. Tarte Pretty (LE, ) is warmer. Givenchy Inattendue #1 (P, ) is more shimmery, lighter, warmer. Cle de Peau Stellar Gaze #2 (P, ) is more shimmery, lighter. Make Up For Ever D652 Celestial Earth (P, $21.00) is more shimmery. Laura Mercier Bamboo (P, $23.00) is more shimmery, lighter. MAC Sketchbook (LE, $16.00) is darker. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

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.
