Laura Mercier- Rouge Nouveau Weightless Lip Color- Cafe'

Rouge Nouveau Weightless Lip Color is the newest lip color innovation from Laura Mercier cosmetics.

If you know me, you know Laura Mercier is one of my top five makeup brands of life! When I got the e-mail that a new product was released, I had to grab one, sight unseen, and try it out. I chose the shade Cafe' because it looked like a nice nude that would go with anything.

The shade naming on this collection of color is quite unique. Anything that starts with a C is a cream, anything with an M is matte and anything with an S is sheer. Cafe' of course, is a cream.

"Laura re-invents lipstick with this 100% wax-free lip colour that delivers pure, long-lasting breathable colour and comforts with lip-nourishing hydration. The light-as-air formula feels completely weightless on lips. The secret is a unique wax-free base that allows pigments to deliver true custom colour impact."

This formula truly feels weightless on my lips. It is quite comfortable. I forget that I have anything on my lips. I was able to wear it a full 5 hours at work and still had it on when I got home. Of course I did not eat anything or touch my lips during that time. I love that there is no wax in this formula.

$24 for 1.9g

Long skinny tube. This tube shows fingerprints like crazy!

The shade cafe' is a medium pinky brown nude that is wonderful on medium/tan skins.

I purchased this from www.lauramercier.com.

This is a great alternative to a heavy lipstick. It is very comfortable and lasts longer than most. I would recommend trying one out and can't wait to have more shades of this formula!
