It seems lately everyone is coming out with “baked” eyeshadows, blushes and bronzers and I gotta say, I like it!
The Laura Mercier Baked Eye Colour’s come in just five colors now (Black Karat, Terracotta, Lagoon, Petal Pink and Violet Sky), but wow do they pack a punch.
As with most baked products (except cake, haha) you can use these either dry or wet, for even more color impact.
Mmmm now my mind wanders to cake…What’s your favorite kind of cake? Mine is white cake with vanilla butter-cream filling and frosting. 🙂
I found these shadows to be extremely soft and had amazing color payoff. Instant love at first swatch here.
Black Karat, Terracotta
Black Karat, Terracotta (dry)
Black Karat is an antique olive green with heavy gold shimmer. Just absolutely gorgeous, opaque, soft and amazing. And this is dry!
Terracotta is a warm orange/copper color with shimmer. Another very gorgeous shade, this will really make blue eyes stand out especially.
I didn’t even try these wet because I didn’t feel the need to. Normally I don’t use shadow wet if it’s got major saturation dry because it’s just another step for one lazy-ass person. 😉
If you love soft shadows with huge payoff then I think you’ll love these. I am interested in checking out Lagoon and Violet Sky also.
