Usually an out of sight out of mind brand, since having a LM counter near me I have definitely bought more, what's that they say about proximity bringing closeness?
I picked up 3 of the Sateen Eye Colours (£18 each): Sable (cool taupe), Haze (sheer slightly greyed blue) and Pewter (smoky grey/green ).
All the shades have a subtle shimmer. Pigmentation is average and then need a primer to last all day.
I also bought the eye basics (£20) in shade Linen (pink toned cream). I have mixed feelings on this, what I really like is that the coverage is high and acts almost like a concealer (probably why you need to make sure you pick a good match) and covers up any little veins/redness. I find I do not have to use an eye shadow all over to even out the discoloration to create a blank canvas as this does it for me.
My only downside is that I find this too drying and I have to make sure the area is well moisturised before application otherwise it can look a bit crinkly.
In terms of performance it makes shadows last as long, stay as vibrant as with my Too Faced shadow insurance. Where it not for the dryness this would be a re-buy for me.
Although I really like the Holiday Colour Wardrobe I reviewed a while back, Laura Mercier is not a brand that excites me. However, I foresee buying more items as I do have a tendency to venture towards the cosmetic counters in a mindless "must buy" state on my lunch break, now if only they had put a Trish Mcevoy counter there instead. I consider the brands are aimed at the same audience , have a similar style but Trish Mcevoy has a more interesting edge to it.
