I have three of these in Gold, Pink Gold and Alloy.
I have also never bought any with my own money, I had recieved them for christmas.Gold is by far my favorite, the name is very misleading, it is not gold whatsoever, it is more of a taupey light brown with sliver and some gold reflects.It is a perfect all over lid color.Pink Gold I like, but I dont reach for it very often, but I am now because I am starting project pan.It is a pink toned skin colored sort of brown color, but very pretty and probably even prettier on someone who is tanner than NC25(for reference).Alloy is also very good too, I use it when I am lazy but still want some color, it is shimmery taupe light brown, but just with sliver reflects, unlike gold refects, like Gold has. But the difference between Gold and Alloy is that Alloy is much more of a skin color.The all work well with primer but I have noticed they dont stay on as well in heat, which is sort of a pain in Arizona.They packaging is okay but can get messy which I also don't like.I'd say try before you buy, instead of ordering, because I do know several poeple that are not fond of these, but I know I enjoy them.

I only have one, Pink Gold, and I'm glad I didn't invest in more. While it lasts quite well in colder weather (around 6-8 hours), it lasts near 2 hours in the heat. I don't use a primer and I don't need to with my other eyeshadows -either cream or pressed ones- and they still last 10 hrs and more on me, so I find this very disappointing. I like the color a lot, but I won't be re-buying. For cream eyeshadows, Clinique Quick Eyes is the best one I've tried so far.

I have several of these, and Alloy and Platinum have seen the most use. But lately I have come to love the understated brilliance of Stone Suede. It's a "Satinee Creme Eye Colour" rather than a Metallic, and makes a beautiful and subtle crease colour, especially applied with the UD 24/7 Blending Brush. A dab of UD primer in Sin and eyes lined with UD Stray Dog and I have a neutral but defined eye. I have very fair skin (Ellis Faas S101!) with pink undertones.

I use the pink gold shade as a base for my purple eyeshadows. It looks really pretty as the pink tone peeks through the purple. I wish they made this in a silvery white color so I could use it as a primer for more colors and highlighting my browbone. The color is very pigmented, doesn't streak when you apply, and has lasting power.

I love this eyeshadow. It lasts for a long time and it feels good and looks good on. I would recommend it to anyone!!

I bought this in Alloy. I really like the color; it is a nice basic sort of taupe color on me. I don't mind the metallic look because I normally wear another color on top. However, it just does not last that long on me. I have tried dusting it with loose powder, wearing another shadow on top, wearing primer underneath, it just doesn't matter; this shadow slides off my eyes by mid-day. I thought this would be more like the MAC paints, which last so long for me. It's not though, so I am returning it.

Love this product.
Stays all day. Easy to apply. Nice colors.
Purchased the "gold". Nordstrom sales lady gave me generous samples of the "rose gold" and "platinum" in little sample containers to mix with my purchase.
Would probably repurchase if needed, but the little tube lasts a looooong time.
This product and the tinted moisturizer got me sold on Laura Mercier!

I use this as an eye shadow base. A little goes a long way and it holds my eye color ALL day. I received a sample of this in a Sephora order and it's lasted months and months. I love the way it evens out my lids so that my eye color looks more intense. I love it! If you are looking for a great base to give your shadow some good staying power, give this a try!

This product is amazing! I prefer cream eyeshadow because of the texture, however do not like that many creams crease after a few hours of wear. This product is completely different because you can wear it the whole day or evening without any creases. I own Gold and Burnished Copper, and these are the only eyeshadows I wear if I have to go to a party or formal event.

FABULOUS cream eye shadow! I have a frosty white color that really highlights my whole eye area. It does not settle into the creases, it stays on all night and it has just the right amount of shimmer. Plus, I think it is so much fun to put on.

LOVE these cream eyeshadows!!! Definite thumbs up from me! Little to no creasing, great staying power and the tube packaging makes it easy to apply, especially for those with longer nails. Based on a recommendation, I gave one of these colors a try and now I have them all! The colors tend to look more intense on retail websites, but they're much more subtle in person (with a definite shimmer/frost to them.)

This eyeshadow is pretty expensive, but I love it...it's gorgeous! I bought it in gold and although it's very sparkly, it's just so pretty. I wear a great eyeshadow base so it lasts pretty long on me, although I can't really say how long it would last on bare lids. This is definitely not for the shy...but if you like very metallic eyeshadows, I recommend it!

I have loved all the eye cosmetics I have tried so far from Laura Mercier and her cream e/s are no exception! They are easily blendable, have incredible staying power, and come in a bunch of gorgeous shades. I think Platinum may replace my former HG Becca creme eye shadow in Quartz, because it comes in a squeeze tube rather than a mirrored compact and is $3 cheaper.

I love these, I own two of them: mercury and gold. The coverage is buildable, it's easy to apply and blend, one tube will last for a long time. It can last through a day on my eyelids. Love them.

LOVE THIS, love it so much! I only have gold, but have swatched others. But the gold is something I have been searching for for ages and ages, that is: a shimmery sparkly shadow (which would probably be a cream) that is a color that gives the illusion of "wetness" on the lid, like vaseline or the MAC glossing product that is only good for photo shoots. It's not 100% that-- it doesn't look literally wet, nor is it exactly my skin tone, but it is such a gorgeous product that it stands up for itself. They are very creamy, less thick than MAC paints, do not leave my lids looking crepey (like Paints or some of the new Bobbi Brown creme shadows). The color remains glossy and sparkly ALL DAY and does not have any kind of drying effect. I have tried both with and without UDPP: I would do it either way, but without primer I did experience a little creasing by the end of the day, but it was extremely hot, and the color was still on my lids (i.e. not ALL in my crease, just a bit). But with UDPP it was all good, lasted all day no movement (I have very oily lids). I LOVE THESE, and I will definitely buy more.

I have these in rose gold, platinum and malachite. I usually shy away from cream shadows because I have oily skin but these are great! After wearing all day long they did not crease or fade. You don't need to use too much product. I got this in a Nordstroms Aniversarry Exclusive mini set for $35 which I think is a fantastic deal! However I wouldn't pay $22 from one full size tube of it. I think that is just way too much for one eyeshadow even though it lasts forever. I do hope they continue to come out with mini sets because then I will buy them.

I purchased these on you-know-where for a reasonable fee, in Rose Gold, Rose Pink,Titanium, Gold, Platinum and Copper. The copper was generic, but I love the others, particularly the rose and pink. They are subtle in their shimmer, not at all disco, and their lasting power is excellent. I have oily skin, but these still persist all day, even through my workouts, without creasing. I would purchase again, but will likely never experience the need, as it is a generous portion per container.

I own the metallic cream e/s in the shades mercury, platinum and gold (see separate reviews). It holds up on me all day without creasing and I successfully use it as an e/s base.
The packaging is *so* much better than with MAC paints. The tube is made of plastic instead of metal and has a very narrow opening, so you can squeeze out a precise amount and product doesn't ooze out on its own. The LM product contains 8.5g compared to the 7.5g of MAC paints. I couldn't be happier with this product, the LM metallic cream e/s will definitely replace my MAC paints when I've used them up. Retails for $22 in the US, in my opinion an acceptable price given the quality.

I got Burnished Copper which is a warm copper brown. It goes on smooth and is a pretty but not unique color. If worn without a base this eyeshadow fades and creases. Overall I was disappointed in this cream eyeshadow.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Other Hair: Other Eyes: Other
I apply this cream shadow with a shadow brush. It goes on really smooth and the colors come out beautifully and they blend very easily. It stays on a decent amount of time, but no where near as long as the MUA at the counter claimed. I would buy this again though.
