Laura Mercier just launched a new line of lip color and they are phenomenal. If there was a crown jewel of lip color, this is it. I have been on a complete Laura Mercier kick lately, but that's not the only reason I love this lippy.
Shade: This shade is absolutely perfect for my skin tone. In the tube, it looks a bit intimidating and really purple, but on lips it's so beautiful. It's just the right amount of edgy - I can get away with wearing it to work or out at night. It has such an interesting finish - it's matte with a sheen if that makes sense. Not super shiny, but not completely flat matte either. Just trust me, you'll love it.
Texture: This is the biggest sticking point for me when it comes to lip color. If it's a gloss - is it too sticky, tacky, drying, etc? If it's a lipstick, does it feather, flake, etc? This lip color does none of those things. It glides on so creamy and stays that way. It's not a lip gloss - I would say this is more similar to a liquid lipstick product. It's very pigmented and creamy. You can eat, drink, talk and it will stay on. It oddly stays moist throughout the day and isn't the least bit drying. Which takes me to my next point.
Longevity: This lip color could withstand a tropical storm. I apply my makeup at around 6:30am for work, and sometimes forget to touch it up throughout the day. This thing stays ON. It's so long lasting it almost seems to good to be true. When it finally does start to wear off, it just fades evenly. No feathering, flaking, smearing. It just gets a little paler in color. Especially in the winter months when your lips get cracked and dry, this product just glides over it and almost smooths over the imperfections.
It's safe to say i'm completely obsessed with this product. It's AMAZING.
