I’ve said it a lot, sure, but Laura Mercier just does not let me down. More and more of their products have been making their way into my collection and I’ve yet to be disappointed but lately it’s been all about their lip products – I’ve been trying four different formulas out and to be honest, I can’t even pick a favourite.
One of the more classic lipsticks in the line – creamy, sheeny and very comfortable on the lips.It applies so smoothly on the lips while still packing a punch when it comes to pigment. This is a really hydrating formula, too, I find. Pink Dusk is a lovely warm flamingo pink shade, although it’s not entirely unique, it’s still getting a whole lot of use.
A newer addition to the LM offerings but from the first swatch of the formula, I knew it’d be love. As advertised, these really do feel more like a balm when applied – SO creamy and kind of thicker than the normal lip sticks while still feeling comfortable and lightweight. It wears beautifully on the lips, with a kind of healthy shine. Raspberry Ripple is a rosy nude, my favourite from the lineup which is mostly made up of bolder shades.
This is a slightly drier formula, designed to be long lasting and comfortable. The range has Sheer, Matte, Creme and Pearl formulations – the shade I have, Myth, is a matte. Even though the formula is drier than the ones I previously mentioned it doesn’t drag on the lips and feels genuinely weightless for the length of wear. This one’s turning out to be a new favourite matte formula. Myth is a mauve-y pink, a little more berry than it looks in the swatches below.
Their lip glosses are just as good as their lip sticks – these are quickly becoming some of my most reached-for glosses. They’re pigmented and creamy without the stickiness factor. The doe foot applicator is foolproof and I find that these are some of the longest wearing glosses that I have in my collection. Tulip* is a bright, cool-toned purple-pink which I loved a whole lot more than I thought I would’ve and Wildflower is a deep, bright raspberry pink.
Laura Mercier, you beauty. Four gorgeous yet subtly different formulations – one (or more) for whatever you look for in your lip products. Not to mention the whole spectrum of shades they have across the range. I think it’s fair to say my LM lip collection will be growing even more…
Which of these formulas sound the best to you?
