With the Summer 2014 New Attitude Collection, Laura Mercier has released two limited edition Baked Eye Colour Quads – one for those melting summer days (Rendezvous in Monte Carlo) and one for those sultry, steamy nights – Summer in St. Tropez.
What Sephora says about the Laura Mercier Baked Eye Colour Quad:
What it is:
A quad with four versatile colors to create unlimited eye looks, with shade combinations hand-selected by Laura Mercier.
What it does:
These ultralightweight, creamy powders can be used wet or dry for a smooth, soft, velvety texture that stays true and won’t fade for up to eight hours. The non-drying, non-dusting, non-irritating formula is great for all skin types, even for sensitive skin or contact-lens wearers. It blends seamlessly, offering vibrant color without creasing, dragging, or pulling skin, and won’t smudge or transfer.
What else you need to know:
This product has been dermatologist and ophthalmologist tested.
Summer in St. Tropez is a quad of four baked eye shadows – a navy with slight shimmer, a matte teal, a chocolate bronze shimmer and a shimmery mint. The shades are easy to wear and blend, and even though the navy shade doesn’t swatch well when dry it does wear well on the eye and it particularly stunning when used wet. Make sure you use a great base for these shadows (I like Urban Decay Primer Potion) and use firm brushes to pat the color on to reduce fall-out.
I’ve always been impressed with the quality of the Laura Mercier baked shadows because even when they’re used dry they don’t wear patchy, aren’t stiff, last all day and still look beautiful. (see the previously reviewed Emerald Trio & Bronze Trio). When used dry the color is buildable but if you want true vibrancy from them definitely use them wet.
For the eye look below I used the quad dry because that is generally how I’d wear a product like this and also to show you how nice the colors look on the eye even though they don’t swatch as vibrantly on the arm. The mint shade is at the inner corner & to blend out the crease, the chocolate bronze shade is on the lid and the teal shade is through the crease and blended up. I put a bit of the royal blue at the outer V area of the eye and also over top of the eye liner, which is Chanel Marine Le Crayon Kohl, to add vibrancy. The mascara is Milani Total Lash Cover.
How would you wear Summer in St. Tropez?
The Laura Mercier Baked Eye Colour Quad retails for $44.00 and is available at Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdale’s, Sephora, Saks Fifth Ave, Macy’s and lauramercier.com. This item is limited edition.
I would never have expected to see this kind of blue from LM – it sure is a gorgeous quad!

The colors are nice, it is a little too glittery for myself but I could totally see this on a client going out for the evening or something very glam.
