Weightless and richly pigmented, Laura Mercier gives us a comfortable wearing formula with their Rouge Essentiel Silky Creme Lipstick. With thirty shades to choose from, ranging from cool to warm undertones, to suit all personalities and skin tones.
The sleek metallic case features a magnetic lid to keep it in place. I personally love this type of closure because nothing irks me more than reaching into my makeup pouch and seeing my lip pencil smeared all over the inside of my Louis Vuitton toiletry bag. (But seriously, why is it always lip pencils?! Can someone PLEASE design a lid that stays in place?)
The bullet features a custom-curved tip for a precise lipstick application. I found the design gives me too sharp of a line for my liking. Instead I simply applied it from the back of the lipstick to get that feathered out effect that I like.
Alternatively, a lip brush or pinky finger will also achieve the same feathered-effect, but I'm not keen on the latter when I'm in public and haven't had a chance to wash my hands.
Laura Mercier’s Rouge Essentiel Silky Creme Lipstick retail for $37 (CAD) and can be found at Nordstrom, Sephora, Saks, and thebay.com.
