Laura Mercier Illuminating Eye Color in Gilded Rose Gold
Most recently I've been quite into rose gold, which I know is so 2011. But I couldn't resist myself when I swatched this gem at my local Laura Mercier counter. I would've bought all of these eye shadows if I wasn't on a budget, I mean I wasn't even supposed to buy any. But once I swatched this eye shadow I was amazed at how soft it was. And instantly I was sold.
The feel and texture of these shadows is honestly what sold me most. It's very similar to the texture of Burberry's eye shadows. But I do also love the color. It's a very true rosey gold, and is a standout when applied just by itself. It has pearl/metallic finish with bits of micro gold shimmers.
I also love the tufted pattern on these shadows. I forgot to mention that this is from Laura Mercier's Art Deco Muse Collection for Winter 2012.
I believe these retail for $24 and can be found at Nordstrom or any Laura Mercier retailer.
