When I do reviews of other products, I start missing my lipsticks! So, I am back with the review of another lipstick, this one from Laura Mercier. It’s been in my stash for some time now, but didn’t get used. And when I did use it finally, I was surprised, pleasantly or otherwise, you will find out soon enough!
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.
US $27 for 4 gm.
The lipstick comes in a glossy square brown tube with “Laura Mercier” etched on it lightly, so difficult to photograph. The bullet has a normal twist up mechanism. The case comes packaged in a grey cardboard box, like most high-end lipsticks.
My Experience with Laura Mercier Creme Smooth Lip Colour – Deco Rouge:
Color: The shade is orangish red or reddish orange – you decide. Okay, it’s one of those colours which will look different on different skin tones. Warmer skin tone will bring out the orange and cooler fairer skin tones will bring out the red in it. It’s a fairly bold shade with a nice creamy feel. You could wear it slightly smudged for a softer stained look.
Texture: The texture is creamy but not overtly slippery and it glides on smoothly. Its easy to apply from the bullet, there is sufficient control. The lipstick keeps the lips hydrated for as long as its there. The lipstick does not settle into the fine lines.
Pigmentation: Great pigmentation, about 75% colour deposit in one swipe. You need to go over for even coverage around the lip contours.
Staying Power: This was what amazed me about the lipstick. This was my second Laura Mercier lipstick and the reason it kept lying in the box for so long because I wasn’t too impressed with the first one I tried, but this has an unbeatable staying power. It lasts through snacks, lunch and coffee – it just stays put. The lipstick lasts for about 7 hours+ on my lips and leaves a stain.
To sum this up for you:
Pros of Laura Mercier Creme Smooth Lip Colour – Deco Rouge:
- Fantastic colour, loved the orange, which is wearable and does not feel like a “paan” stain. It’s flattering and brightens the face.
- The colour would suit all skin tones as long as you are comfortable wearing a bright colour.
- The lipstick glides on smoothly – no tug, no pull.
- It does not feather or bleed.
- It’s hydrating while on the lips and comfortable to wear.
- Does not settle into the fine lines of the lips.
- Has decent packaging.
Cons of Laura Mercier Creme Smooth Lip Colour – Deco Rouge:
- Availability of Laura Mercier products in India!
Would I Repurchase Laura Mercier Creme Smooth Lip Colour – Deco Rouge?
I doubt if I will finish this lipstick so soon, but if I lose it, I will definitely repurchase!
I like the colour, it’s an easily wearable orange, bold but not overtly so. Texture is easy on the lips and lasts a long time. I am definitely trying more Laura Mercier lipsticks. What about you?
