Laura Mercier Illuminating Eye Colour in Fire Glow

As far as single eyshadows go I never really purchase them, I always opt for palettes or more than one shade because they are generally more usable and cheaper. However on occasions I do have to splash out on singles, they do have to be exceptionally special! This Laura Mercier Illuminating Eye Colour in Fire Glow was one of those makeup items I saw and was like "SOLD".  Laura Mercier are probably my favourite brand of the moment. I love the simplicity and natural beauty of their brand.  Their Summer Collection- Folklore is possibly up there with my favourite Summer Collections of all time.

Fire Glow is a stunning coppery shimmery colour. It's a soft, buttery with luminous pearl finish, that is soft and bouncy with excellent colour pay off. The finish can be as metallic and bright if you pack it on, or you can simply use it as a wash of colour all over the lids. I personally like to lightly dust it all over my lid and then get a pencil brush and line the bottom lashes to make my eyes pop. I know coppers are really complimentary on my eye shade so I absolutely adore wearing them., I might actually do a post on my favourite copper eyeshadows as I do wear them so often.

Ever since I bought this Illuminating Eye Colour I've had so many compliments, I can't put into words how much I love it. It's just THE perfect eyeshadow for summer that will compliment tanned skin, brighten the eyes and really give that beautiful summer glow. I think I might even go as far to purchase the other two shades of Illuminating Eye Colour Sun Glow (pale gold with shimmer) and Earth Glow (a deep brown). I just love them. LOVE. LOVE. LOVE. Did I mention I loved this?

  6. I'm a big lover of copper and brown shades with shimmer as they really make blue eyes like mine (and yours!) stand out. Would really love a post on all your favourite copper eye shadows as you're thinking of doing.

  9. This colour looks stunning on you. It looks brighter in the pallete than on your eye? Do you have to blend it in a lot or does it go on with ease? It is pretty pricey for one eyeshadow but like you said if you are sold on it then why not? xD ha! I don't think you mentioned you loved it enough! I am also a big fan of copper eye shadows, might have to find a good dupe for this one. My favourite coppery brown from mac is Mythology.
    Great post

  16. I'm not a fan of copper eyeshadow but somehow you pull it off! (As Usual)
    I really enjoy your blog.
    I think the presentation of the eyeshadow is really pretty and it comes in a lovely little compact!

  18. To be honest I think it looks prettier in the pan than actually on, the colour payoff doesn't look amazing.. I might need to look in person though.

  29. this review made me smile because you just loved the product so much and it's always great to find a product you really love! it looks amazing on you, as do most coppers, and i'm still yet to copy your tip of putting a bit of shadow under the eye. i think the packaging and design on the actual product is beautiful and i really want to check out some more laura mercier products because of this. i like how you can wear this quite subtle with only a little bit on the lid or just add a lot more to make it a dark copper lid - a great product overall i think! :) X
