This is my first Laura Mercier Rouge Nouveau Weightless Lip Colour & I am so happy with it. This shade & type of lipstick won’t be for everyone but I think it is brilliant. The line itself is clean, concise, & easy to maneuver as well. Laura Mercier has really impressed me, keep reading to find out why!
This is a long, thin tube. It has the class Laura Mercier coloring with her name on the side. It is an expensive plastic packaging, nothing flashy. It has a twist up applicator. I personally like this type of lipstick, I find them easy to hold & apply.
So basically this lipstick is weightless. It pretty much feels like my lips but better. It applies very smooth & comfortable but isn’t slick or heavy. My favorite part is that after a few hours of wear it actually fades off evenly & leaves my lips looking a bit stained…not like my lipstick ran for the hills. I can’t get over how brilliant the Laura Mercier range is named, how simple! Because Sexy starts with an S, obviously it is part of the sheer range of shades. Because this is so comfortable I really want to try one of the matte shades, I’d imagine they’d be the most comfortable mattes ever!
With some back & forth swatches on the left you can see the color built up & on the right you can view it as sheer. This lipstick definitely as sheer as I was expecting but I love it. Normally sheer shades are really glossy, like a lip balm, but this one is more of a comfortable satin. This is a rosy red shade & I think it might be the most versatile red shade I own. Period.
Here is how I normally wear it, I like it a bit more sheer. It gives me a flush of color & looks almost like a stain. I think it is really pretty against my fair skin, a tinge of Snow White if you will!
So there you have it! Definitely not what I was expecting but a wonderful surprise instead! I definitely want to try other shades in this line, I think I want to check out Mink & Coy next! I think another beautiful sheer in this line would probably be Sin… it looks ravishing!
