My Experience with Laura Mercier Creme Smooth Lipstick in Pink Dusk:
I have been using MAC lipsticks for a long time now and I love them, but when my favorite creme sheen lipstick was just about to get finished, I was looking for something new when the IMBB sponsored product list came out. The moment I read Laura Mercier lipstick, I knew I had to have it since the brand is so renowned for their quality and high-end products. I will be giving my personal review about this product as well as comparing it with MAC lipsticks which I guess most people have already used and will see how it fares in the test.
This lipstick is way more expensive than the MAC lipsticks which are around $15 and the Laura Mercier is $26, so naturally expectations are also higher. I am pleasantly pleased with this lipstick though I still think it falls a bit short than the MAC ones. First, I love the texture of this lipstick which is very creamy and smooth as its name rightly suggests, but it is not as lustrous as the MAC creme sheen finish ones I have used. The finish of the Laura Mercier is semi lustrous and it does not look or feel heavy on the lips. It feels very lightweight on the lips and there is no stickiness when the lips are pressed together. Though it does not feel as smooth than the lips glide on top of each other when pressed.
Pink Dusk is described as a mid tone clean pink. I feel the color is very beautiful and it gives the face a very fresh look since the color is so youthful and vibrant. It is not a difficult shade to pull off and it will flatter most skin tones. The color payoff is decent, you will need a couple of swipes for the color to build up and be able to show. The staying power is very good, 4-5 hours, but it does require a few touch ups now and then for the color to keep looking fresh especially if you have a snack or drink in between. The lipstick does transfer a lot, but even after it fades away, it leaves behind a tinge of pink on the lips, so you are not left with bare lips peaking from underneath.
The packaging is very sleek and classy. The black glossy tube though looks very beautiful is very prone to fingerprint smudges. The cap is very secure and will not accidentally open after it is closed.
The lipstick is completely fragrance free. Overall, I will definitely recommend this product.
Pros of Laura Mercier Creme Smooth Lipstick in Pink Dusk:
- Smooth and easy application.
- Semi-lustrous finish.
- Fragrance free.
- Does not dry out my lips.
- Does not accentuate fine lines on the lips.
- Makes lips look healthier.
- Leaves behind a tinge on the lips when the lipstick fades.
- Sleek packaging.
Cons of Laura Mercier Creme Smooth Lipstick in Pink Dusk:
