Askmewhats Version: Laura Mercier Quad Look

After doing a review on my newly purchased Laura Mercier Quad that I got on sale. Readers have been suggesting that I do a look with this quad. It took me a "typhoon" day to be able to stay at home and play around with this quad.

So here goes my LM "blue sky" quad look without anything except well..all 4 colors of the quad! So whatever eyeliner you think I have on, is just my LM e/s and I've used a liner brush to brush it on the lids for depth. For the swatch and product review, please Smile and say "LM Blue Sky!"












Products Used ---

LAURA MERCIER QUAD in SKY BLUE

At first, I thought it was difficult to use all 4 colors together, but after putting them all on my lids, I find the colors are quite easy to blend and easy to use. I've used them as highlighter, eyeliner and it didn't smudge, I let it stay for more than 2 hours and I didn't have any "domestic violence" look :)

Shall I go out with this look?
Or do you think I have to use other products with this quad?
Feel free to comment
but break it to me gently...
it's the time of the month! LOL

  4. ebeautyblog, wow..soft and delicate..wouldn't really think I could pull the soft and delicate look, at least now I know! I can do it! LOL the last pic was just me having fun coz my mom gave me back my cute "pucca" head pillow that was given to me by my student in China. Yup, i carried it back home here in PI! LOL

    Nilla Cookie, girl! I am glad I bought them, I felt bad after buying them coz I was thinking "another blue???" lol..but I love the pigmentation and the softness and blendability <--- is there such term? Lol..if none, I invented it! COPYRIGHTED MINE! Lol

    NicNic, awww, thanks girl! It wasn't hard coz I was bored on a Sunday stayed all day at home due to the storm...*rain rain* *blend blend* lol

  8. Lol~ I didn't even realize I was mentioned *looks away*. :P It's okay I'm more a Mashimaro person than Pucca, the evil girlfriend. :P

    What did your husband say about your eye makeup *curious to know*? I think it came out good! :)

  12. You've taught in China? what grade did you teach? I've always wanted to teach oversea but never had chance to. One of my friend used to teach in China. He said that the experience was great and the salary is even BETTER. Wonder if that's the case for everyone.

  13. Faux Fashionista, awww all colors for me are tricky to use! LOL thanks for the compliment!

    Tine, dear!!! Thanks, are you giving me a pat on my head? *sits like a dog* LOL yay!!!

    Ebeautyblog, yes, I taught University students *guplp* It was a challenging moment as I am Asian and I ain't holding a US Passport (sad to say) It doesn't always mean better salary but because your salary is still higher compared to the locals, you get to earn more and food is cheaper there! but you have to checkout the location! They also give you free lodging, free RT ticket in a year. It was the greatest moment of my life to be able to teach there! It was challenging and I'm glad to let them know once a teacher, always a teacher, you don't have to be Caucasian to be a good teacher :)

  14. Ohhh me likey! I especially liked the way you applied the e/s and the way you blended them. It seems different than your usual way, but it's working big time!!! :D

  15. Awww Liz!!! I'm touched!!! You noticed that I did it differently compared to before!!! sweet cheeks! I am touched! thanks a lot dear! So..wanna be my neighbor? LOL

  16. awww i like it! it's a nice look for a night out. good job!

    ReplyDelete
  17. You make me wanna go and experience it myself now. Maybe after I get my master. But it's true race has nothing to do with being a good teacher. A good teacher is someone with a dedicated mind and a big heart. Not to mention lots of patience...LOL.

  18. Home Spa Goddess, gosh, I can't believe I will be competing against the PUCCA pillow lol! i'm ok coming in second against her..as Pucca is such a cutie!

  26. Blue's a scary color, but I think you did a good job. :) I can definitely see it being worn out in the daytime!

  27. Emilee, I know what you mean, do you know that I can't apply the blue color lightly? As it will turn gray on me!!! So if I want to create a blue look, I have to pack on the colors! so that's my tiny secret on using blues lol

    ReplyDelete
  28. LOL, Nikki, that domestic violence comment was hilarious. The colours look great! Do you find it's easy to use all four colours though, even if you aren't using them all at once? I always find with quads, there's always one neglected colour.
