I recently had the chance to try 2 shades of Laura Mercier’s new matte lipsticks thanks to Influenster. I received ‘Queen” which is more of a berry shade & “Ruthless” which is a pinky nude.
This collection can be found on Laura Mercier website or go grab your favorite shade(s) at Sephora. There are 24 vivid , full coverage shades that provide a matte finish.
The slim bullet shaped lipstick makes it easy to apply and glides over the lips easily. The best part is the color payoff in just one stroke. The color is rich, intense, bold, & highly pigmented. Since its slim, its easy to define & fill lips. When you want to shape the lipstick , take off the bottom & you have a built in sharpener. Perfect to carry with you whenever & where ever you go!
(Shade – Queen)
When i first received these lipsticks, I knew “Queen” would be my shade so I applied right away and loved it. The next day I put it on before work so see how it would hold up. I drank water all day, ate cheesy homemade mac n’ cheese, applesauce snack cup & it still looked great. The thing that did it in was at the 6.5/ 7 hour mark when I decided to treat myself to a frappuccino. I think from sucking and puckering up my lips the straw made it wear off. But that is pretty much a work day and it stayed put without having to retouch or reapply. Two thumbs up in my book!
One thing about matte lipsticks, is how dry it can make your lips feel. With these velour extreme lipsticks, it was so creamy and hydrating ….my lips felt great all day. I also love how bold & rich the color is when applying ( in one stroke). When I first applied it when I received my package I accidently fell asleep lol When I woke up I forgot I applied the lipstick and it was still as bright and no smudging.
Shade Ruthless. Didn’t take a photo on because it looked bad on me. I gave this one to a co-worker 🙂
