Laura Mercier’s new holiday collection includes a new color story, Chameleon Collection, featuring products for eyes and lips, in natural and smokey hues.
Part of the collection are two new Eye Transformer Trios ($32; lauramercier.com) in Rose Quartz and Black Diamond. 'Black Diamond' features a three piece eye set - Eye Glacé in Black Diamond, Kohl Eye Pencil in Jet Black and Full Blown Volume Suprême Lash Building Mascara in Black. The Eye Glace in Black Diamond is a new product - a glitter packed cream eye color for the lids, in a black base. The texture feels a tad tacky, so I’d recommend using a flat brush or fingers to smooth it over. The glitter adheres well to the skin and doesn’t have fall out, feels dry to the touch once completely set and layers well. It makes for a great base for festive, smokey eye looks. Blending can be a bit tricky, but works better when not using a primer and the finish is better looking as well.
The Kohl Eye Pencil in Jet Black, is a gorgeous, deep dark black with a smooth, creamy texture. Its great for smudgy looks as it does’t actually set. I love it for a super quick lived-in smokey eye and for both the lash and waterlines . The Full Blown Volume Suprême Lash Building Mascara in Black is a very natural looking mascara for subtle volume and length. It gets better with use and the formula doesn’t make lashes crunchy even after a good two coats. Overall, the Eye Transformative Trio in Black Diamond is a great pick if you like a good, glittery smokey eye that pairs fabulously well with a simple nude lip!
