Laura Mercier Metallic Crème Eye Colour in Alloy deserves a lot more love and hype than it gets. After all, this is a gorgeous shimmery taupe color that stands alone or as a companion to regular powder shadow. One of the things I love best about Laura Mercier cream eye shadows is the incredibly light texture. This is what makes it possible to apply the product in very thin layers, which is the key for a long lasting and very polished look.
The color of Laura Mercier's Alloy is sure to delight taupe lovers everywhere. It's perfectly neutral and works in endless combinations, including as a quick wash on the lid with nothing but an eyeliner for company (try a navy one). The cream can be applied with your pinky finger or with a MAC 217 (my preferred method), and is wonderfully low maintenance.
Bottom Line: excellent.
Laura Mercier Metallic Crème Eye Colour ($22) is available at the counters, Sephora and lauramercier.com.
