I am officially addicted to the Laura Mercier Caviar Sticks. I can't help hoarding these. I have for you today Sandglow and Smoke. Sandglow is a newer release whereas Smoke is from the existing lineup of Caviar Sticks. You can't imagine how happy I was when Laura Mercier came out with lighter shades.
Sandglow is a light taupe shade with golden shimmer and Smoke is a basic matte black. I have said I wanted to try a darker shade. All the Caviar Sticks are smudge proof on me so I wanted to see if a darker one would be too. I am happy to report that yes they are. Smoke held up really well for me throughout the day without smudging or creasing. I love that these do not set fast. This gives me time to blend them.
Sandglow blended with my Hakuhodo J220G brush.
Added Smoke at on the corner of my eyes and blended inwards.
The products I used for the day.
The bottom line is Caviar Sticks are definitely worth trying. The work wonderfully on its own or as a base for loose shadows as well. They are crease proof and smudge proof on my oily lids. There are very lovely colours which makes it really difficult to just pick one.
These sell for USD $24 cheaper than the Bobbi Brown ones. May I suggest you buy them online because the mark up here is quite high.
