Questions & Answers for Laura Mercier Baked Eye Colour - Wet/Dry

Question
Really sheer when applied dry.. How do I appy wet?
I purchased the Black Karat. On my finger in the store it was a beautiful dark olive metallic. When I applied with my brush, it was very sheer.. almost beige and I had terrible fall-out all over my cheeks!

I've never used an eyeshadow "wet" and am wondering if I'd get a better result with applying this one wet.

Can someone explain what's the proper way to apply wet?

Thanks gals!

I use a eye shadow brush to apply this. Simply wet your brush and rub over the shadow then apply to your lids. You can use a q-tip to help blend it. Get the q-tip wet and blend. Using this shawdow wet will reduce any dust on your cheeks or under your eyes.

I LOVE this wet!! Here's how I apply it: wet a shadow brush with just a drop of water and rub it across the shadow to saturate the brush with color. Add another drop of water if it isn't wet enough to make the shadow cake go gold-metallic looking. Just use the minimum water to get the product to saturate the brush. Then, starting in the middle of your lid, apply it outward until you get the effect you want. No fall-out when wet, and you get a spectacular, shiny metallic lid for evening. I add a darker liner on top near the lashes for finish.

I use this shadow dry on my lids to the crease line. Then I take a small eyeliner brush and wet it and apply the shadow as a liner on the top and bottom. This looks amazing. What is really cool is that the shadow can be used dry even after you have used it wet. With the shadows that are not baked, you can't do that. Don't be afraid to play with this shadow.

I use the cap from a Perrier bottle with a little Perrier in it, wet the brush so that it's thoroughly soaked but not dripping, then rub it around on one spot on the shadow so that it makes a little bit of a paste. Then I apply that paste.
A slim, slanted brush works best for lining; a flat rounded brush will do for all over shadow blending.

Take the tip of a liner brush and wet it. Shake off or blot off any droplets of water and dust the brush over the color. Be sure to get all of the colors on the brush. Use as an eyeliner. Use a larger shadow brush with the same process and apply to the outer corners of your eyes, or in the crease. You can always add more color, so my suggestion is to start light handed and build from there. Once it is dry, you can smoke up the harsh lines with a fluffier, clean shadow brush.

Theres different ways to do it. put some water on the back of your hand dip the brush on the shadow then mix it on your hand then apply. I use eyedrops instead of water it makes it last longer water can clump up.

I'm waiting on the black gold, so I haven't tried this shadow yet, but I would think that applying it wet would be the same as any other shadow. Dampen your eyeshadow brush & swipe through the shadow & onto your lid. That always works for me. I sometimes use Mac's fix+ instead of water. Works great! Good luck!

Is the color Terracotta a neutral enough color for everyday wear to school?
I have dark brown eyes, and fair skin with yellow undertones. I need a color that can be worn everyday that is shimmery, and can be played up and down, depending on the time of day. Would this be a good color? Thanks.

This color is very sparkly, so whether it is appropriate for day wear depends on your occupation. In a corporate environment, I would say it's too sparkly. However this color is beautiful for night, and really makes blue eyes pop!

Sephora has amazing customer service, so if you just give them a call, they probably would tell you that they will send you a new one or something. Or maybe you can pick it up from a store nearby if you can. But I would definitely call them first though.

Suggest Black Karat... I'm a fair greying blonde with minor crepe wrinkles in the eye area. I smoke Black Karat along the lash line
for evening and am thrilled that the shimmer is beautiful with a less than perfect eye area. The effect is twinkling eyes.

For day, I lightly dust lid without primer or neutral shadow(minor fallout) with a soft crease brush. Result is a very sheer look with gold
shimmer that brightens eyes and warms the complexion. Sometimes wear liner, sometimes not. Black Karat seems to work by itself.
I like this so much that I wear it on Sundays at the Cathedral!

Pairs well with Armani's Eyes to Kill mascara--there's something special about this mascara that enhances the eye shadow.

Question
primer necessary? is fallout an issue?
Ever since my lids have been developing this dreaded crepe texture, whenever I use primer, my eye makeup looks terrible. Even the smoothest, most buttery matte shadows look pretty terrible if I wear them over primer. My eyelids aren't particularly oily, but my eyeliner does smudge and crease pretty easily - even the long-wearing formulas, like Urban Decay 24/7 liners.

How do these eye shadows hold up on bare skin? How much fallout do they tend to have? I'm specifically looking at Smoky Topaz, Black Karat, and possibly Aubergine.

Appreciate any input!

I have all the colors. When placing the eye shadow pat it on and when using it wet my trick is to wet eye shadow brush and tap your eye then with a clean dry brush place the eye shadow. I always use a eye base so I do not know how well it works with out one.

I have black karat. I do use a primer on my lids and I feel that helps my shadow to last. There is a minimum amount of fallout right after I put it on, but I wipe it off and I don't notice any afterwards as the night goes on.

I tried out all of the colors before I purchased black karat, and they are all very highly pigmented. The ones that look sparkly are subtly done, so I can wear them everyday without looking like I'm heading to the club...lol!! You can use just one swipe for a more sheer look, but these are easily buildable. I have very dark skin, so I love a palette like this - for me a few passes last all day and provide a beautiful wash of deep golden color on my lids. I would imagine that light-skinned users would need to have a little expertise to make sure that the colors don't look "clownish".

Swatch of Purple Color
Can someone please swatch the purple color? I've looked online and I haven't been able to find one. I've been on a search for a true lavender/lilac for a long time (no pink or red undertones - neutral or slightly blue toned as my skin is cool toned) and have yet to find it. I would REALLY appreciate it!

The Violet Sky is definitely towards the blue spectrum, but it's much darker than what I consider lavender or lilac. More of an inky violet, with black undertone. HTH

No, you can't because the compact of the baked shadows is one piece in the back. You cannot pop the color out of the compact like you can with the regular eyeshadows and tightliners. Sephora, please change your answer!
