Laura Mercier Deep Night, Bamboo, Topaz Eyeshadows: Review and Swatches

 

Hello from the Northern Territory!

It’s day two of working in an incredibly well set up eye clinic within an Aboriginal health care centre in Katherine, NT. We’re in a rural setting, but the town is big enough for a YMCA with Les Mills classes,  and a cinema so I consider the area well serviced where it counts :) Having a blast!

And thanking heavens for drafting this post before I left :)

 

Laura Mercier Deep Night, Bamboo, Topaz Eyeshadows: Review and Swatches

In the last 6 months or so I’ve fallen in love again with my Laura Mercier Topaz lustre eyeshadow, a product that had languished untouched in my makeup drawers for at least 2-3 years. It has been a staple ‘every day’ eyeshadow, and it’s versatility is reflected in the many FOTDs I’ve used this in ( here, here, and here)

I knew I had to get my hands on some more Laura Mercier shadows, and when I saw a swatch of Deep Night on The Glitter Geek, I made up my mind to pick one up for myself.

Keep reading after the jump!

 

 

Deep Night (matte):

Deep Night is a highly pigmented charcoal navy. I absolutely love this colour- it is sultry, sophisticated, and dramatic at the same time and makes for a killer smoky eye. Texture wise it reminds me a little of NARS mattes in that it has a dry texture that grabs onto the lid that can result in patchiness unless you take the time to blend well.

Bamboo (lustre) :

Bamboo is a light golden fawn with a satin shimmer finish. It’s a sheer to medium pigmentation product that gives a wash of colour over the lid. Texture is silky and applies very smoothly.

Topaz (lustre) : 

Topaz is a cool mink taupe with a slight pinkish undertone. It has medium pigmentation and a satin shimmer finish- more pigmented than Bamboo but still a subtle colour on the lid. Texture is silky and applies smooth.
