does not have fallout

they apply very easily, there is no fallout, they are easy to blend and stay looking freshly applied all day long

- Bloomingdale's User

super soft, very nice color payoff, no fall out

- Sephora User



not the most pigmented shadow on the market, but that is not necessarily bad: the sheerness allows for foolproof application and a subtle wash of color

- Lauramercier User

i do use primer underneath,but still they blend great and you can go sheer or dramatic

African Violet

I am just bananas about African Violet. I discovered it in the eye artist's palette and when I hit pan on that shade I knew I needed it in the full size. It's this gorgeous purple shade with copper/golden shimmer. If I just want a light wash with shimmer I use the shadow dry but more often than not I use this shadow WET by applying with a slightly wet brush. The color is gorgeously vivid when applied wet. It stays put and so highly pigmented you can see it all day long. The shadow doesn't crease, has a buttery soft texture and blends like a dream. This is such a unique and lovely color, especially for brown, hazel or green eyed beauties.

The Best!

Laura Mercier makes the best matte eyeshadows ever. Actually, all of their shadows are good but the matte formulation is superior by comparison. They are so rich and pigmented. They blend with flawless ease and allow you to create some of the most beautifully blended eye looks. I was already a customer for other awesome products in the line, but for some reason, I had not gravitated to their matte shadows...even though they were in gifts sets, etc. About a year ago I saw an LM rep and had to know what was on her eyes because it was so beautiful... If you are not sure which ones to try first I recommend using an eyeshadow primer, flat shader, crease and blending brushes with Sesame (lid), Cashmere (crease) and Truffle (outer V)...with black or brown winged liner. Prepare for the compliments as this is a classic, showstopper combination on everyone - trust me. You can use Truffle as your lower liner to complete the look. Also, Truffle on the lid and crease with something neutral as your highlight is so pretty all by itself too. It's the perfect chocolate brown and also great for brows too... A second gorgeous matte look can be achieved using Sesame (lid), Truffle (crease) and Twilight Gray (outer V) to smoke the look out. It's stunning. Everyone should have Twilight Gray in there collection. It's the most beautiful gray I own, and is also great on the light with a neutral highlight. I was stunned at the number of people who want to know the colors, brand etc. every time I wear this combo...it's unreal! Last but not least, if you want a fresh, intriguing alternative to the traditional smokey eye....try this: Cashmere (lid), Plum Smoke (Crease) and Black Plum or Twilight Gray (outer V.) I won't be satisfied until I have the entire collection and plan to add Blue Suede next! I 'm going to wear it on the lid with Truffle in my crease and Twilight Gray or I may also purchase Deep Night...but I had the first 2 with Twilight Gray on the back of my hand and several people want to know what it was...so I know it's going to look pretty. Enjoy these treats...they are totally worth every penny. And I forgot I also have Vanilla Nuits and that can be used in place of Sesame on all aforementioned suggestions. And I do not work for the company but when I product is good, I share! Thank you team Laura Mercier...keep making beautiful colors! The only concern I have is I would love to see see more permanent matte colors in the collection...a wine or burgundy would be so pretty...imagine it with Cashmere. You could call it Merlot. :) <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>

Quite a disappointment

I bought Kir Royale because I find it difficult to get a nice aubergine shade, and this was the closest I could get to the old one. The brand I used for years discontinued the shade I liked so I thought I'd give this one a try. On the first day I used this eye colour, my eyes started streaming and itching. Then the eye colour faded after just a few hours - it didn't even last a full working day. If it rained, the slightest drop of water would spoil it, and it creased very easily. I admit I don't use a base coat, but never did with my previous eye colour either and never had any problems with it. This eyeshadow was three times the price of my previous one, and I got a colour trio with my previous eye colour, I never reacted to the old one, and it stayed on all through the day, and even when I went out at night after work until I got home. The price is not an issue with me, I just want that perfect aubergine colour, amd will pay any price if I find it. But I would not expect an eyeshadow from a low end brand to out perform a high end brand by so much. <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__expand-link pd-reviews__translate-span" data-hide="6455263523614061332-full" data-show="6455263523614061332-short" jsaction="pdui.tvc">« less</span>

I have several colours. They are highly pigmented and they blend easily. Shadows last all day and are crease resistant.

Best Eyeshadow Ever

I just purchased Truffle to add to my growing collection of Laura Mercier eyeshadows. I have tried them all and always come back to Laura Mercier It blends beautifully, like no other, and the pigment is perfect. Lasts all day long too (I use with a primer) and doesn't crease.
