The Rose Gold obsession continues on in my life…
I was recently able to get my hands on one of the Laura Mercier Metallic Creme Eye Colours in “Rose Gold”. Just the name had me sold, let’s be honest.
These are a wonderful product, and something I’ve really enjoyed using – so keep reading for a full review!
The Laura Mercier Metallic Creme Eye Colours are available anywhere Laura Mercier is sold.
I personally found mine online at Macy’s.
They are available in five colors, including Rose Gold, and will run you $22.00 a piece.
You get .3 OZ of product in one tube, which is a little under a third of the size of most liquid foundations.
The idea behind the Metallic Creme Eye Colours is most reminiscent of the MAC Paints, but in my opinion, much better!
Unlike a Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadow, or the MAC Paint Pots, these cream eye shadows come in a squeeze tube, which might scare customers away.
However, I encourage you to test these out, due to the fact that the tube in its entirety is actually very easy to control.
The packaging is small and sleek, encased in this silver tube, however it may be difficult for someone who likes their uniform glass jars. Unlike the Paint Pots and other potted cream eye shadows, these cannot be lined up neatly, so you are stuck throwing them into a case for now.
PIGMENTATION AND TEXTURE:
The pigmentation on these is absolutely stunning.
The rose gold shimmers flawlessly without any white base or powder over top.
I would say that the shade of this product is more on the copper side of rose gold, rather than pink.
Don’t let the swatches on the website mislead you, as I’ve found they aren’t very accurate.
It’s best to test these sort of products in store where you can get a complete feel for them in natural and artificial lighting.
The texture of the cream shadows resembles a thicker paste. It’s far more thicker in consistency than other cream products that you can maneuver on a doe foot applicator like UD Primer Potion.
There is no need to warm them up on the back of your hand or to manipulate them prior to application.
The only minor downfall is that they do tend to chunk up a little bit while you are blending them, so make sure that you are evenly distributing the product with a thick, dense brush.
I’ve found the best way to attack these is to use a brush like the Sigma P82, which helps it blend evenly.
Overall, I am quite impressed with these products, and hope to purchase more in the future.
I think that they are an excellent base, or even something that would be perfect to wear on it’s own.
I can just picture this rose gold shade with some thick winged eyeliner and a few coats of mascara as a stunning (yet quick!) look.
