It’s not just the packaging for the eye shadows that’s changed over at Laura Mercier. The formulas are improved as well and come in 3 different finishes.
Burnished is a Sateen finish, which is in between a matte and a more frosted looking Luster. In my opinion it’s the easiest to wear and it feels almost creamy on the skin, not the least bit dry, and without a hint of creasing.
I tried to photograph the color to show its dimension and uniqueness, but this doesn’t quite capture it. The shade is this perfect coppery color without any hint of orange or redness, and the color stays true all day long.
I use it from my lash line to just above my eye’s natural crease with a little black liner. It really makes my blue eyes pop and just the smallest amount gives you huge color.
