Laura Mercier Forbidden Rose is a slightly warm-toned, medium-dark brown with a sparkle finish. It is a permanent eyeshadow that retails for $29.00 and contains 0.05 oz.
Laura Mercier Forbidden Rose Caviar Stick ($29.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a deep, reddish-brown with subtle, warm undertones and a barely-there pearl sheen. It had a lot less visible sparkle compared to most shades that launched beside it.
The texture was smooth, thin, and had good glide, though it was harder for me to diffuse it evenly as a wash as the color seemed to settle/spread into fine lines and "pores" in a way. On deep skin tones, I'd expect those things to be less visible. It had mostly opaque color coverage that lasted well for eight and a half hours on me before fading noticeably.
The finely-milled, light reflecting pearls infused in every shade brings subtle, natural dewiness to add life to all skin tones. The self-adjusting, demi-transparent micas blend into a hybrid fusion for skin-balancing illumination. This long-wearing versatile eyeshadow stick delivers effortless application with up to 12 hours of high-impact color. Highly pigmented shades glide seamlessly onto lids. Creamy formula gives you plenty of time to smudge, blend, line, fill or define, so it's easy to create any look. Sets for crease and transfer resistant wear and layers easily over or under other eyeshadows in powder and liquid formulas.
