Laura Mercier Caviar Stick – Smoke and Khaki

Hey Beauties,
I bought two of the Laura Mercier Caviar Stick’s last month because I swatched them a couple times over a few weeks when ever I popped past a counter and eventually succumb to Smoke first and liked it so much that I went back for Khaki a week later.What I like most about these sticks is that they make it so easy to do a smoky eye whether it’s just using the Caviar Stick as a single colour or as a base for other colours on top which is also brilliant because of the staying power of the Caviar Stick’s.

Laura Mercier Caviar Stick in Smoke is a charcoal grey with subtle silver shimmer.  It doesn’t dry and set too quickly so there’s time to blend and make it work the way I like.  But when it sets, it sets!  This stuff doesn’t shift and I haven’t any issues with creasing either.

 Laura Mercier Caviar Stick in Khaki is a dark mossy brown based green, very khaki and has a bit of a metallic sheen which I really like.  On application it has a deep dark green hue but blended it gives a lovely soft smoky look which I like paired with gold or nude beige.

 The Caviar Stick formula is great.  It has a lovely creamy texture that gives enough time to blend and play with before setting like concrete.  It’s easy enough to build the colour and I found it easiest to let each layer dry before adding another.  Once set this stuff did not rub, migrate, smudge, crease or anything when I wore them.

The only problem I found for myself was that the tips are quite wide and so are harder to use as a liner smudgy look.  It’s more for the full on smoky.  I was comparing these to the way the Stila Smudge Stick works for me (post coming up).

What do you think?  Have you tried the Laura Mercier Caviar Stick’s before?
