Samantha's Secret | Laura Mercier Sequin Eye Colour

This is my first purchase from Laura Mercier, and I was lucky enough to pick up one of these Sequin Eye Colour individual eyeshadows for a ridiculous £2 in the Space NK sale.

The packaging is sturdy, expensive and sleek; exactly what I expected from the brand. I ordered a lovely pink shade: Brilliant Rose.

I was so massively disappointed by this product. I don't know what I expected, having snapped it up for a mere £2, but still this shadow was just pathetic. As you can see I've included a swatch photo on my finger, where the colour looks gorgeous (I was very excited at this point) but when I went to apply to the back of my hand, the colour literally did not transfer at all and I was just pushing around a couple of specks of glitter. The same thing happened when I used a brush.

I can't comment on texture, how it blends, durability or even colour payoff since this product has not yet made it onto my face. I'm so sad :( but not overly suprised now that it was selling at such a low price.

Has anyone tryed any other LM eye products? I haven't written off the brand at all, as I know they make some great products, but it's still a disappointment as I was so excited to recieve it!!



  1. That's a shame after finding it at such a low price x

  2. The colour looks so pretty, such a shame it's so badly pigmented. x

  3. Looks like a nice colour, shame about its quality! xo

  4. Looks like a beautiful colour, thats a shame! I'm a new follower, i'd love if you checked out my blog and follow back if you'd like! xx

  5. How annoying! Good thing you didn't pay full price for this, I'll be sure to keep away from LM eye products!
