Mode to Modern

Laura Mercier Mode to Modern 4-Piece Caviar Stick Set ($38.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a new, limited edition set featuring four, miniature-sized jumbo eyeshadow pencils. All four shades can be purchased individually if that is preferred. The Caviar Stick formula is supposed to have “easy application with “long-lasting color” that “blends and layers beautifully onto the lids with rich pigment-payoff.” This year’s set includes two matte shades and two shimmers. All our shades were richly pigmented and long-wearing with textures being creamy and non-tugging.

Value

A full-sized Caviar Stick retails for $29.00 and contains 0.05 oz. or costs $580.00/oz. This set contains $69.60 worth of product.

Vanilla Kiss

Vanilla Kiss is a light-medium beige with warm, yellow undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had rich color coverage in a single stroke, and the texture was moderately creamy with a thicker consistency compared to the other shades. The formula took longer to dry down, so there was more time to work, but it was also more prone to lightly creasing as it was setting, so I had to pat it back into place after about 20 seconds to smooth it back out. From there, it lasted well for eight and a half hours before more creasing occurred.

Rosegold

Rosegold is a light-medium gold with warm, orange undertones and a frosted sheen. The pigmentation was opaque in a single stroke, and the eyeshadow applied evenly and smoothly to bare skin. The texture was smooth, lightly creamy, and easy to work across the lid as it did not tug or drag. The eyeshadow stayed on well for nine hours before creasing faintly.

Au Naturel

Au Naturel is a light-medium beige with neutral-to-warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had opaque coverage in a single layer with a creamy, moderately emollient texture that was a bit thicker compared to the shimmery shades. It applied evenly to bare skin and lasted for nine hours before creasing faintly. The matte finish seemed to dry a bit faster than the shimmer, so work quickly for the easiest blending.

Amethyst

Amethyst is a medium-dark, plummy taupe with warmer, brown undertones and cooler, silvery pearl. It had good pigmentation in a single stroke with a lightly creamy texture that glided across the lid without tugging. The formula was remained blendable for about 30 seconds after applying it to the lid, and then it set for a solid nine hours of wear. The version in the set seemed to be a bit darker than past year’s sets.
