You may have noticed that Laura Mercier’s Eye Basics have a new look but what you might have missed is the introduction of the new Eyebright shade.
This new shade is a light blue cream that helps brighten up tired eyes instantly. Don’t be afraid of this little blue tube! I was a little hesitant at first but after some quality time with the SA at the Laura Mercier counter, I looked wide awake and fresh in the middle of the afternoon thanks to this new Eye Basic. If applied correctly, you can’t even see the blue on your lids, all you can see if that your eyes look brighter than they did before. Now that’s not to say that you can’t build up the intensity and paint a lovely shade of pastel blue on your lids but I think it’s safe to say that’s not how Ms. Mercier envisioned this product being used… at least not this shade. 🙂
Brightening is not the only benefit to this product, this makes a great primer for eyeshadow. It helps keep eyeshadow from creasing for hours, this holds up pretty well on my kryptonite lids. Laura Mercier’s Eye Basics also do double duty by using ingredients to soothe and protect eye lids like Vitamins A, E and C and anti-oxidants.
Have you tried this product? If so, what shade? What did you think?
