I love most deeper lip colors & tend to break them out a lot more during the fall & winter. Something about a moisturizing, deeper shade that doesn’t look patchy is kind of hard to find. Dark lip colors can be tricky. This Laura Mercier Creme Smooth Lip Colour in Merlot is effortless, keep reading to learn more!
From Laura Mercier-
A luxurious lipstick that gives lips the ultimate in colour, texture, and finish. In one smoothing swipe, the crème formula envelops lips in rich colour with a semi-lustrous finish.
Melot is a burgandy/wine shade. The pigmentation is really nice & buildable. On the left is one quick swipe with minimum pressure & on the right is a few swipes of built up color. I tend to wear it slightly more natural. Built up it is really luxe looking & reminds me a bit of berry jelly. Love. The texture is really comfortable to wear & lasts about 3-6 hours (depending on food/drink) before I worry about reapplying. I love the packaging too, feels really sturdy.
Because this shade is buildable it has almost become a neutral for me. I can build it up at night for something more comfortably vampy or wear it a bit more light with a dramatic eye look. I love the rose-y tones on me & I’ve had compliments from strangers which are always appreciated.
Laura Mercier Creme Smooth Lip Colour in Merlot is my only shade from this line but I definitely need to try some more! You can purchase Laura Mercier products from the Laura Mercier website, Sephora, & Nordstrom.
