LAURA MERCIER Mini Caviar Stick Eye Color Quartet


Laura Mercier Mini Caviar Stick Eye Color Quartet (4 x 0.03 oz) retails for $38 USD ($46 CAD) It was/is a limited edition set and exclusive to Sephora. It's currently sold out and unlisted online available online (as of 14/11/14) and be sure to check your local stores for availability! It is said to be "a set of four hand-selected shades that shadow, highlight, line and define."

Amethyst is described as a soft mauve with pearl.
Cocoa is described as a chocolate brown. 
Moonlight is described as a pewter. 
Rosegold is described as a dirty pink with golden shimmer. 
"Inspired by Laura Mercier's cult classic Caviar Eye Liner, Caviar Stick Eye Colour features four beautiful shades with a creamy formula to provide endless options for a flawless smoky eye. Each convenient stick is long-wearing, transfer-proof, and crease-resistant. The color glides onto lids and blends easily for a rich pigment payoff."
The full-size Caviar Stick Eye Colors individually retail for $28 USD ($34 CAD) and contain 0.05 oz. of product. With that said, this set contains $67 USD ($82 CAD) worth of product, so you are getting a fairly good deal. You're getting to try four shades for under the price of two full-sized sticks.

The packaging is a basic, black plastic eye shadow stick. The bottom section is color-coded depending on the shade and they are retractable, meaning there is no need to sharpen them.
Amethyst is a medium taupe with warm undertones and a frosted finish. The texture was creamy, smooth and glided-on easily without tugging or pulling at the skin. It had excellent color payoff in a single swipe and was easy to build and blend out before the product fully set. This shade applied evenly and lasted +9 hours before lightly fading. (5/5)
Cocoa is a dark, brown bronze with warm undertones and a frosted finish.  The texture was creamy, smooth and glided-on easily without tugging or pulling at the skin. It had good color payoff in a single swipe and was easy to build and blend out before setting. This shade applied fully opaque, evenly and lasted +9.5 hours before fading slightly. (5/5)
Moonlight is a medium, golden bronze with warm undertones and a frosted finish. The texture was creamy, smooth and glided-on easily without tugging or pulling at the skin. It had good color payoff in a single pass and was easy to build and blend out before the product set. This shade applied evenly and lasted +9 hours before fading. (5/5)
Rosegold is a light, golden copper with warm undertones and a frosted finish. The texture was creamy, smooth and glided-on easily without tugging or pulling at the skin. It had decent color payoff in a single pass, but was incredibly buildable and easy to blend out before the product set. This shade applied evenly and lasted +9 hours before fading. (5/5)
Overall, these pencils are creamy, opaque, long-wearing and easy to blend. I can see this set being perfect for those who like minimal effort when applying color to the lid. All four shades work well together and blend beautifully. These shadow sticks do have some play time before the product fully sets and they don't crease during wear, even in the crease. They work great alone or paired under other shadows as a base. I highly recommend checking this set (or the 6-piece set available at other retailers) out while you can!
