A Hollywood Red Lip & Golden Eye Look with Laura Mercier!

 Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour in Sandglow
and Laura Mercier Crème Smooth Lip Colour in Hollywood

I am super excited about this Laura Mercier duo! The new Caviar Stick Eye Colour eyeshadows come in wide range of shades, from neutral to more adventurous... My pick is the stunning Sandglow, it's a metallic brassy gold, a very chic shade... I've been wearing Sandglow on numerous occasions with just a black eyeliner, which is a very quick way to create a glammed-up eyelook... The texture is really pigmented and glides beautifully over the lid straight from the stick, to blend out edges I just use a brush or you can also do it with a finger before it sets... Once they do set they are really long lasting and stay put... 

Hollywood is such a fantabulous red lipstick shade, it's quite bright as you can see on the pics... It's a warm tone red which is fantastic for my complexion, I find it hard to make blue toned reds work on me... Hollywood has a gold sheen to it, but it doesn't look shimmery at all, the gold makes it pop in a way, and that's what makes it a quite unique red... Hollywood has an element of 50s glamour to it, I absolutely adore it! It reminds me on the glowing red lips Marilyn Monroe and Jane Russell are wearing in the opening scene of Gentlemen Prefer Blondes...
