Possibly My Favorite Cream Eyeshadow! Laura Mercier Metallic Creme Eye Colour in Alloy

I have been looking for good cream eyeshadows from many brands. I have tried Chanel Illusion d’Ombre, Shiseido Cream Color and few other brands. I finally tried LauraMercier Cream Eyeshadow in Alloy and I must say that I am in LOVE LOVE with this product!

The packaging looks very unappealing to me. It looks kinda boring; looks like a toothpaste tube to me. It’s very lightweight and small; it’s good for travelling necessities.

What I love most about this product is the texture. It’s creamy, easy to apply and it lasts for many hours without a single crease! Alloy is a creamy metallic cream color which is suitable for many skintones. It can be used as a eyeshadow base and also can be used itself as an eyeshadow. Β The color pigmentation is good but I like to build the color in 2-3 layers for maximum pigmentation. This cream eyeshadow works really well as a base; it holds pressed eyeshadows very well.

This retails for SGD 35 in Singapore Sephora & Tangs Beauty Hall Orchard. I find the price is rather expensive for this packaging, but since the quality of this product is great, I don’t have any complains on this.

The swatch above shows the color in indoor lighting. The left swatch is the amount of cream eyeshadow I usually use on both eyelids for 1 layer of application. The middle swatch is how 2-3 layers look like and the swatch on the right is how it looks like in 1 layer of application.

Final Thought:

Laura Mercier Alloy is suitable for anyone who’s looking for a great cream eyeshadow which can also be used as an eyeshadow base. The color suits many skintone and it holds pressed eyeshadow for very long. I highly recommend this product!

  1. Whoa! Another cream shadow on my to-try list! Glad to hear the formula is crease-resistant. I prefer this type of packaging because it’s more sanitary, and the product risks drying out less. The color looks like something I’d really love! Will definitely look into this.

  2. I think the packaging is rather cute. And that color? GORGEOUS! I MUST have this!! I always hear so many things about this cream shadow but ALWAYS forget to try it!!
