Product Love | Laura Mercier Mini Caviar Stick Eye Colour Collection

As a beauty junkie, I feel it is important for me to share when I am in love with a product. Because I will share my thoughts from two perspectives, as a beauty lover and as a Makeup Artist. For me, the product needs to WOW me and also be good quality. I recently picked up these goodies and I have no regrets, because they have successfully done both! The Laura Mercier Mini Caviar sticks are like...Hoh my gawd! 

These little gems are perfect! This collection offers you gorgeous balance of colours which are perfect for everyday and for the holidays!  If you want a quick, effortless and long wearing smokey eye or any eye shadow look, you can easily achieve it! 

I love that you can literally scribble these on with no effort and can use your fingers to smudge out to achieve the perfect look.  Meaning: You can do the 1 minute smokey eye! If you want to, you can layer eye shadow on top but I find you can totally wear these alone.

  • Rosegold: Soft Pink Gold Tone. Reflective Sheen.
  • Amethyst: Pinky Brown Tone. Soft Sheen.
  • Moonlight: Silvery Brown Tone. Reflective Sheen.
  • Copper: True Vivid Copper. Reflective Sheen.
  • Khaki: Dark Deep Green Brown. Semi Matte.
  • Cocoa: Dark Chocolate Brown. Semi Matte.

Check back on the blog soon because I will be posting looks using these babies! Be sure to check out the Laura Mercier counter at Holt Renfrew Sherway Gardens. The lovely Paige and Courtney will be happy to show you the regular shades of the Caviar Sticks and what's new for the holidays!

Review | Maybelline Master Kajal

I love eyeliner and when I came across the ad for this Eyeliner by Maybelline I had to check it out. The Maybelline Master Kajal is pretty amazing! I loved the shape and love that I don't have to sharpen this pencil. The unique shape allows for precision eye lining whether it be for the waterline or upper/lower lashline.


  • Easy to Use.
  • Multiple ways to line eyes (Waterline, Under lash line or on the Top Lash line).
  • Shape allows for easy application inside the waterline. 
  • You can tightline by closing your eyes during the application.
  • Smokey and Smudgy effects can be achieved.
  • Never need to sharpen it!

  • Would love if it were waterproof, but it's not bad for long wear, with minor transfer.
  • Will not give you a sharp liner look. (Which is ok!)

  • Use the pencil on an angle to keep shape and for even easier application.
  • Black shade is called Onyx Rush

Overall I am impressed with this product. It has worked very well for me as well as on my makeup clients. Worth the buy and I will be checking out the other colours that they offer too!
