I don’t often see a lot of hype about Laura Mericer colour collections, its as if they creep out, I’ll walk pass the counter and notice a quiet new little display.
The sea wave texture of the Riviera quad (£31) immediately caught my eye, a seemingly cool toned palette, yet with a warm sand, I was interested to see how the contrast of a warm against 3 cools would work.
All shades have great pigmentation are smooth and silky and have a satin finish.
The quad contains a white, moody grey blue, warm sand (this veers towards orange on me) and rich navy (this contains a touch of blue sparkle).
The stripes are quite slim so its best to use a small brush head if you want to avoid picking up more than one colour.
Although I really like this quad, the warmer shade is a challenge for me so I do tend to mix it with the white to subdue it. However, I do think that if you are darker than me or warm toned you won’t get the orange hue that I do.
Overall I think this is a good quality, versatile little quad and its something a little bit different from the other collections being launched at the moment.
I bought this from John Lewis.
