I have previously written about my enthusiasm for Laura Mercier’s Spring 13 collection. I like pink, and it dominates the collection’s colour palette.
I have to admit, I love a good pink lip; but it is surprisingly hard to find: many are too frosted, too peach or brown, and some just don’t look right. Laura Mercier’s newest offering is pretty bang-on. It is a sheer pink-peach which applies smoothly and lasts for around 2 hours on me. It does feel slightly drying, but I combat this with a smear of Korres lip butter.
My one little gripe with this product is the packaging. The lipstick comes in a slick dark brown metal tube, the corners of mine have already lost colour after about 3 days, meaning my tube is looking a little battered already.
Despite this I can see the colour becoming one I reach for throughout the warmer months, when I need a lip-colour which looks natural but better!
