Over the past few months, I've become a huge fan of Laura Mercier eye shadows. I've been wanting to try some of her other products, but haven't had a chance--and frankly, I didn't know quite where to start. So when I saw the Tighline and Define Cake Eye Liner Collection at Sephora the other day, I couldn't resist.
The kit contains three cake liners: Black Ebony, Violet Asphalt (a deep, smoky blue-based purple) and Mahogany Brown. In addition to the liners, there is a double-ended eyelining brush (flat end for tightlining, pointed end for lining) and a full-size Full Blown Volume Mascara in black.
Top to bottom: Black Ebony, Violet Asphalt, Mahogany Brown. Taken in direct sunlight.

And here's my EOTD with the products from the Collection:
I used all LM products for this look. I started with a wash of Guava Sateen Eye Colour, followed by Deep Night Matte Eye Colour in the crease. I lined with the Violet Asphalt cake liner and used LM Full Blown Mascara in Black.
From another angle:
I'm really loving this entire kit. The liners are easy to use and last all day with no smudging or fallout. The colors are gorgeous and should work for any color eye. The mascara is fantastic, adding plenty of volume while remaining natural looking. Even the brush is nice. It's shorter than most eye liner brushes, but both ends work quite well, and the quality is very good.
Bottom Line: This is a great kit if you're a fan of cake liners (or have always wanted to try them) and if you're looking to try out some Laura Mercier products at a good discount. Everything in the kit is very high-quality and performs as advertised. Definitely a must-try!!
