Weekly Must-Have: Laura Mercier Caviar Stick

Weekly Must-Have: Laura Mercier Caviar Stick

I love a product that makes makeup a cinch – especially in summer when the no-makeup-makeup look is practically a prerequisite. I was introduced to Tarte’s limited edition QVC Eye Candy EmphasEyes Clay Shadow Sticks during the holidays when I did my “brand-a-day” makeover posts. Tarte sent the EmphasEyes Shadow Sticks 6-pack for me to use while creating my holiday face. It was instant beauty love (full recap here). But as is true with so many young loves, sadly, as soon as the holidays were over, so too were the Shadow Sticks.

That’s when I stumbled upon Laura Mercier’s Caviar Stick, similar Tarte’s Shadow Stick’s, the Caviar Sticks allow for easy, creaseless application, can be applied to the crease, lid, upper or lower lash line, and they come in a variety of wearable shades. As I mentioned, it really makes doing your eyes a breeze and the variation is endless. Use on the lids for a more dramatic look, then dab with fingers to smoke out. Take a cue from Refinery 29 Senior Beauty Editor Megan McIntyre and use a bold color (try Turquoise) on just the lower lash line. But my personal favorite way to wear the sticks is a very quick and easy trick I happened upon one day while getting ready in a hurry. Close your eyes and draw a line from the outer crease to midway in. Then take your finger and blend down toward the lash line. Within 1 minute you have a simple, light and carefree smoky eye. If I’m going out at night I’ll add a bit of the same color to my lower lash line and smudge out. Note: Have fun mixing colors too (the sticks come in 9 gorgeous shades).

Colors to try: Caviar Stick Eye Colour in Khaki, Sapphire or Cocoa (my personal favorite for an every day look)!
