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.
With full face of makeup. In this photo, I paired it with Tom Ford Burnished Amber quad.
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!
