I have always been wary of cream/liquid eyeshadows. I envision streaky and splotchy colors melting together all over my eye. But when I got my latest voxbox from Influenster, I was immediately intrigued by these beautiful Laura Mercier eyeshadow sticks.
These Laura Mercier cream eyeshadow sticks are really nice! I was amazed at how pigmented they are. Application is super easy and I can easily blend them with my fingers or a brush. It also stays pretty well all day. I used it both without primer and with; I definitely recommend using a primer for these. Especially in the warmer months, it tends to melt a little and get a little streaky. The golden color is probably my favorite, but the smoky plum shade is gorgeous! I see myself wearing the two purple shades more in the fall and winter. The golden one is perfect for summer! It’s definitely pigmented, but not so bold as the other two shades.
While I do enjoy using this product and like how easy and convenient it is, I probably will always love using an eyeshadow palette just a little more. I really like using multiple colors and blending, which I find easier with regular eyeshadow. However, when traveling or if I’m running late, these eyeshadow sticks are a great option!
Do you prefer cream or liquid eyeshadow over regular powder? If you have any tips or specific products you love, please mention them in the comments! I would love to try more brands, especially some with really glittery or shimmery shades!
