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
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.
