As part of their new Spring Summer Collection, Laura Mercier have added 14 new shades to their Créme Smooth Lip Colour range, and eight shades to the Caviar Stick Eye Colours. I tested out the new lipstick in Strawberry Sorbet, and Caviar Stick in Grey Pearl.
I’m really pleased with both of the items I tried. I normally shy-away from grey and silver toned shadows, instead opting for the golden alternative, but I think this is really pretty. The Caviar Stick Eye Colour in Grey Pearl can be used lightly for a sheer wash of colour, or heavily for more colour impact. After 7 hours on my oily lids it has started to crease slightly, but this is a far better result than any of the usual eye products I use.
The lipstick feels so comfortable to wear and is a great way to ease yourself into wearing bold colours because of the finish. The moisturising properties mean it’s a fab, and much more colourful alternative to lip balm. I’d never normally apply a red lipstick without a lip brush, but this glided onto the lips so smoothly – it was a dream to apply, and no lip brush was needed!
Do you like the look of these products? I really want to check out the Illuminating Eye Colours which are also part of the new Spring Summer Collection – they come in three golden earthy tones but are limited edition – I must get to a counter soon to give them a go. Luckily the new Créme Smooth Lip Colours and Caviar Stick Eye Colours are all now part of the permanent line.
