Laura Mercier Eye Colour Sampler in action

I hope that everyone had/is still having a great time during the holidays - I'm experiencing a little case of food/chocolate hangover, but nothing that a few days of fruits and vegetables can't heal.

So, a few days ago (it's actually more like 2 weeks, can't believe how time flies!) I wrote this post about the Laura Mercier Eye Colour Sampler palette and I promised that I would post some photos of the eye makeup that I did using this palette so here we go:

Firstly, the eye makeup that I've been wearing a lot lately:
For this I've used the following products:
- Becca Eye Tint in Baroque (medium beige, love this)
- Laura Mercier eye shadow in Latte on the lid
- Laura Mercier eye shadow in Chocolate in the crease, the outer v and a little bit on the lower lashline
- Bobbi Brown gel eyeliner in Black Ink along the upper lashline
- Clinique High Impact mascara in Black (probably my favourite mascara)

And another photo of my eye closed, you can really see how gorgeous and shimmery these two shades are:
Now, onto the second eye makeup look that I did - my sister (who usually doesn't wear any makeup at all) asked me to try some of the colours on her so I was more than happy to do it:

Sparkly!
For this I've used the following products
- Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadow in Honey Bunny (a light beige)
- Laura Mercier eye shadow in Mica on the lid - as you can see, the fallout was horrible
- Laura Mercier eye shadow in Ultra Violet over the Mica shade and lightly on the lower lashline
- Bobbi Brown eyeliner in Black Ink on the upper lash line (and I've put some Mica eye shadow over it, which looks rather nice)
- Clinique Lash Doubling mascara in Black


One last look at the palette:

The colours used were (from the left): Chocolate (2), Latte (3), Ultra Violet (5), Mica (7)

By the way, this palette is now 50% off on the Liberty website which in my opinion is a great deal!

  1. I wish you'd told me you'd started a blog, but catching up does give me something good to read over the holidays :)

    Love that first eye look on you, rich but elegant. You have lovely eyes.

  2. Hi, Grace, it's great to see you here :)
    I've been loving the chocolaty browns lately, and after your recent post I think I need to try the RBR Bejewelled Skylark.

    Thank you so much for your kind words.
