Laura Mercier Illuminating Eye Colour in Fire Glow

Thursday, June 13, 2013
I've been drawn to two things lately; Laura Mercier products and the color orange. All of a sudden, I want all things orange; blush, shadow even lipstick. When I had my makeover with a regional Laura Mercier artist at the Nordstrom Trend Show, the artist used Fire Glow on me and I had to bring it home.

Fire Glow is from the Summer 2013 Folklore Collection and is limited edition. It's a bright metallic orange, enough red in the color that it's definitely not copper. The finish is chunky metallic (but not glitter) with little specks of gold which really give it dimension. The pigmentation is fantastic, it looks good with or without primer but looks especially saturated when used over a wet base like Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy. In fact, I think Fire Glow tends to look more sparkly without a primer, I think the naturally uneven surface of the skin lets light hit the particles in a more scattered way.

I'm also wearing:

Brows: NARS Bali shadow
Eyes: LORAC Behind The Scenes Eye Primer, Laura Mercier Vanilla Nuts, Laura Mercier Cafe au Lait, Laura Mercier Rich Coffee, Calvin Klein Night Dust, Milani Grandissimo mascara
Face: MUFE HD + Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk, Black Radiance Complexion Perfection, NARS Light Reflecting Pressed Powder, La Femme Orange blush, La Femme Heather blush
Lips: Model Co Strip Tease*

Laura Mercier Illuminating Eye Colour in Fire Glow is $24 and can be purchased with other Folklore products at Nordstrom.

Is there a color that you're currently obsessing over?
