I am having a total Laura Mercier moment. Everything I've tried from them recently has been amazing, so I can't stop buying their products. I just love them all. I was just in Sephora this weekend (I know, what else is new?) and I instantly gravitated towards that display first. All their products are just so... fabulous. I must own everything!
My newest obsession (or I should say, re-obsession, because I'm pretty sure I've written about them before) are the Baked Eye Colours. Love, love, love these! Each one is a single shade and can be used either wet or dry (dry obviously giving you more pigment). The two that I've tried recently that I'm super in love with are Mystical (a charcoal black with multi-color sparkle) and Black Karat (a black gold with gold pearl) and they're both just so damn pretty. They're really great for creating a smoky eye (I like using them wet for that purpose) and have a smooth texture and blend easily. And with a primer, they last all day on me. I need to try some of the lighter shades, like Emerald and Aubergine, to see how they look on as well, but I did swatch them on my hand at Sephora and they looked fabulous there, so I'm willing to bet they're going to look great on my eyes too.
If I had to pick one shade to tell you to buy (such a Sophie's choice!) I would go with Black Karat (above). The shimmer, the black with gold undertones, the pigment when wet... just everything about it is perfect. It'll be $22 well spent. Trust me.
