My only criteria for picking this particular Laura Mercier product was anything goes. I've never personally tried anything by Laura Mercier, nor do I have a good reason as to why this very brand has eluded me for so long.
Rouge Nouveau Weightless Colour is a new lipstick range featuring three finishes, Matte, Creme and Sheer -- to take the guess work out, the finish corresponds to the first letter of the colour you've chosen. For instance, Sexy has a (s)heer finish. Simple, right?
And what makes the colour weightless? There's absolutely no wax, Laura wanted the formula "to become one with your lips." In reality, I had a difficult time with Sexy melding into my lips. In order to coax the colour out I have to make certain I've applied a fresh coat of lip salve. If I don't, I run the risk of having the colour apply unevenly.
Does it look familiar?
As I've gotten older I find I enjoy wearing a prominent/statement colour on my lips -- I didn't get that sort of satisfaction from wearing Sexy. Sexy is a no fuss colour perfect for those who would never dare wear a shade like this.
The Bagful breakdown:
Total amount for Laura Mercier's Rouge Nouveau Weightless Lip Colour in Sexy:
- $24.00 USD
Value for money spent (performance and quality):
- 6 out of 10 bags — It's a pretty shade, but there's certainly room for improvement.
Would another purchase be on the horizon?:
- I'd love to give the Longwear Creme Eye Pencils a whirl.
