Laura Mercier Metallic Creme Eye Color

I really enjoy cream eyeshadows.  They are so easy and fast and can intensify powder eyeshadow colors when used as a base.  I like being able to apply them with my fingers as a color wash all over the lid for a quick look.

I have Laura Mercier Metallic Creme Eye Colors in Rose Gold and Alloy to show you today.

They are packaged in a small silver squeeze tube which makes it very easy to get only a small amount of product out.  There is a small stripe of color around the tube to show the color inside.  They apply nicely with fingers or a brush, although it seems you get more color payoff when using a brush.

Laura Mercier Metallic Creme Eye Color in Rose Gold and Alloy

Rose gold is a shimmery gold color that reads more copper on the lids and less pink than one might expect with a name like Rose Gold.  Alloy is a shimmery taupe with a little platinum.  These are both very metallic indeed and give the lids a nice glossy effect.   

These do crease on my somewhat oily eyelids without a primer after about an hour, but last a good 8+ hours using Urban Decay's Primer Potion underneath.

You can find both of these at for $23 each.
