A while back I picked up some of the Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour Eyeshadows. I was also sent two shades to review. As you know from my recent Makeup Wars Favorite Cream Eyeshadows post, I fell in love with this product!
The Website Says
Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colours are an eye pencil that offers a new technique to enhance the smoky eye look. Inspired by Laura Mercier’s cult classic Caviar Eye Liner, Caviar Stick Eye Colour is offered in a range of beautiful shades and in a creamy formula to provide endless options for a flawless smoky eye. Each convenient stick is long-wearing, transfer-proof, and crease-resistant. The color glides onto lids and blends easily with a rich pigment-payoff. This product was dermatologist-tested and is cruelty-free.
Ways to use
- * Apply directly to lash line for a smoky liner effect, or all over eyelid for higher impact.
- * Blend with the Smoky Eye Liner Brush or fingertips for a smoldering finish.
- * Use alone or together with Laura Mercier’s Caviar Eye Liner.

In short, I love the Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour eyeshadows! I love the colors! I find them extremely easy to work with. The only color that was slightly disappointing was Orchid. It was a bit more sheer than I expected. Mint Snow is sheer, but for some reason I expected it to be, and it is still very easy to work with and layers beautifully with Sugarpill Mochi.
As you all know by now, I have oily lids. I HAVE to use eyeshadow primer. Without primer, I would be a hot mess. These products can be worn by themselves on primer, or used as a base. They work REALLY well for smoky looks, as you can tell by the purple and teal look above. If you do not have oily lids, I think you could easily use these as primer. They also work as liner. So if you use an angled eyeshadow brush, you can run that across the tip of the Caviar Stick and then apply it to your lash line.
The Caviar Stick Eye Colours are easily my favorite product that Laura Mercier has created and I hope the color selection continues to expand. There are a lot of really beautiful colors available for all seasons!
