This post should have gone up months ago, but with a busy schedule and too many blog posts to write, I’ve only just made space for this feature. I bought this Laura Mercier Mini Caviar Stick Colour Collection in a Harrods sale last year (yes, it’s been that long) because they looked beautiful and I just couldn’t resist buying it! I’m more of a high street girl when it comes to makeup, so this set was a bit of a splurge for me!
This mini Colour Collection is a limited edition, so it’s not available anymore! However, you can still get the caviar sticks separately in their full sized version. For me, the outside packaging was average and the little grey-ish pattern looks like scratches! Nonetheless, the product itself is very cute and elegant and really lives up to the price.
As a whole, I wouldn’t have picked the exact four shades here, simply because three of them look very similar. But then again, these shades are all very neutral and reminds me a lot Sleek Makeup Precious Metal Palette!
These Laura Mercier Mini Caviar Sticks are meant to be used as eyeshadow sticks, but they work just as well as a highlighter (ok, maybe not Amethyst – the dark brown one). Now a little bit about each of the shades, from left to right:
Amethyst: This is my favourite of the bunch because it’s very pigmented and is simply a very pretty neutral eyeshadow shade. As you can see in the pictures, it’s got a beautiful metallic shine without being overly shimmery.
Sugar Frost: As the name suggests, this shade has a gorgeous frosty-shimmery effect. The base shade is beige or golden if you like to be fancy. It really gives you that shimmery, dewy look.
Rosegold: I use this shade quite a lot as a base shade before applying a powder eyeshadow as it brightens up my eyes and makes my powder eyeshadow last longer.
Pink Opal: To be complete honest with you, I don’t use Pink Opal very often. It’s a little too bright for me, but it does work as a highlighter.
In addition, these Laura Mercier Caviar sticks also last all day long and are perfectly bendable! Besides, they’re easy to carry and fits nicely in your makeup bag.
