The original shimmery Laura Mercier Caviar Sticks have forever been a hero and artist staple since they launched in 2011. But when told that the beloved brand was launching a matte version, we set our expectations high—and of course they were met. Replete with seven shades, this creamy shadow stick glides on like satin and is crease-proof, according to our artist community. Consider it your newest everyday eye essential.



“These twist-up sticks glide onto the eyes as smoothly as satin and are easy to use—essentially foolproof. Also, they are perfect for every eye shape and age because of the matte texture. Apply to your eyelid, smudge it out with your finger, and layer for more intense color.”—Jenna Kristina, makeup artist

“This formula is one of my favorites and has been a staple in my kit since they launched the shimmery one years ago. The new matte shades deliver a soft definition and wear well for hours.”—Fiona Stiles, makeup artist

“I love this velvety matte eye color pencil! It goes on the skin very smoothly and blends easily before setting. It’s a pro product that’s super user-friendly, easy to apply, and ultra long-wear. This is a must-have!”—Matthew VanLeeuwen, makeup artist



Apply on the lash line for a smoky liner effect, or all over the lid and smudge with your finger or a brush for a bold eye look.
