Laura Mercier Christmas Presents: Kohl Pencil Eye Set & Tightline Trio Cake Eyeliner Palette

So this post is somewhat late, but I thought I’d share some of the things I got for Christmas! I asked for some nice gift sets from Laura Mercier – they are very good value good quality sets although I have to say – I’ve come to realise LM gift sets almost always go half price right after Christmas so in the future I think I’ll just wait til after the 25th of December!

I got the Kohl Pencil Eye Set and Tightline Trio from my ma:

Apart from the gift sets I don’t tend to buy from Laura Mercier that often just because I don’t seem to pass their counters very often.  Here are the pencils…

The kohls are very pretty colours indeed, dark with hints and flecks of other colours.

Swatches, in the same order as the pencils:

Although this set was good value (I think it was £29-ish for all 5 pencils) if these pencils were just a touch softer and a touch creamier I would’ve preferred it as I feel like they need some warming up first.  I like Black Gold the most the rest are nice enough although I don’t know if i’d buy them individually.

Here is the Tightline trio.  I like the Laura Mercier tightline cake liners a lot although they take a little bit more work than I like in the morning.  This trio has three blue toned shades:

This set come with a mini brush too for tightlining which makes it pretty good value.

Their cake liners have to mixed with water or some kind of sealing liquid for eyes:

There is one greyish blue shade, a bright blue and a deep navy hue.

The top swatch shows how the eyeliner looks when dry, and the bottom liner is when it’s wet. It takes a minute or two to dry up so don’t make the liner too wet in the first place.

The cake liner doesn’t last perfectly in my opinion but it does work really well for tightlining once you have the knack.

What do you think of the Laura Mercier gift sets?

    I wanted the linner set but it sold out! I’ve only recently got into Laura Mercier when I bought a set from Space NK in the sale and I love almost everything! I’ve really been enjoying using her mascara too.
