I'm fairly new to Laura Mercier cosmetics but after trying out the infamous tinted moisturiser
and falling hopelessly in love it seemed only natural to try out a few other pieces to see if the love
affair continues across the brand.
As you all know lipsticks are my weakness so what better place to begin?

Packaging wise there is not much to be really said - it looks and feels high end,
a rich oxblood chunky case protects the lipstick, it looks good, feels great
and most importantly it is sturdy so your lipstick will remain damage free on your daily travels.

To the best of my knowledge within the Laura Mercier Creme Smooth Lip Colour a whopping 18 shades
which range from light to dark and includes nudes, pinks and reds, there really is something for everyone.
I have Pink Blush which is a light yellow toned pink that almost veers slightly peach in tone,
it is pretty much my typical every day pink and the perfect shade to team with a smoky eye if you don't
tend to go down the classic nude shade.
Pink Blush has a little warmth to it which stops it from washing you out and it is a great universal shade that
goes with any type of make-up look, I do have to point out that the deeper your skin tone the more stark
this shade becomes and in my opinion it is one that is better suited to those with light to medium skin tones.
In terms of dupes I would say that MAC Shy Girl and Creme Cup are somewhat similar.

Other than the formula being a little drying but that could be the current cold weather to blame for me
really noticing it I have no qualms with Laura Mercier Creme Smooth Lip Colour formula.
It has the most perfect finish not to matte but not too creamy either, it glides on fairly easily
and feels light on the lips all the while providing wonderful colour pay off.
In terms of wear I find Pink Blush to wear for around 3 hours before it fades and wears off
but in my experience that is fairly average for a lipstick and not below par in the slightest.
Next on my hit list from this line up has to be the truly divine Dulce de Leche.
