Two of 14 new $26 Laura Mercier Creme Smooth Lip Colours available now at Laura Mercier counters and online.
What would I do without Laura Mercier to keep this 50 *cough*something lady looking pretty and polished? Seriously, virtually every product in the line works beautifully for me! It’s the best brand for over 40’s and er…over 50’s on the market! You know how ‘they’ always ask what few items you would with you if you were stranded on a desert island? I want to take Laura Mercier!! I’m sure she packs a boatload (get it?) full of her own products and then SHE could apply them to ME! I’d look beautiful while eating bugs and building a house of palm fronds. Problem solved!!
Okay, back to reality. If I can’t have Laura Mercier as my personal makeup artist, at least I have can have as many of her products as my little heart desires. And currently, I desire her new Creme Smooth Lip Colours in all 14 shades! An impressive array of reds, pinks, berries and corals abound in a color rich, long-wearing formula. But that’s not all… 18 of the original shades + 14 new shades = 32 stunning PERMANENT lip color shades! See, I CAN add!!

These lipsticks are fairly lightweight and have a nice creamy texture. They are formulated with Vitamin E and Olive Oil so they feel moisturizing and comfortable to wear. They are also fragrance free and dermatologically and allergy tested to minimize the risk of allergy and irritation. Thanks Laura!
Brigitte is a pale slightly frosted peachy pink. The name is appropriate because it definitely does conjour up an image of Brigitte Bardot and her iconic pale peachy pout. On my pale skin, it pulls more nude than pink. With my pale complexion most nudes make me look like one of the zombies on The Walking Dead.
Palm Beach is the type of shade I LOVE to wear in spring and summer to brighten my pasty complexion from the lack of sunshine in the winter months. It’s a bright coral cream that will look great with all skin tones and screams summer! It is very warm it may be difficult for cooler gals to wear.
A real plus for us over 40 gals is the superior coverage with no bleeding or feathering into lip lines! One quick swipe back and forth will render a semi-lustrous pigment dense finish. The long wearing formula is supposed to last 6-8 hours and I did get about 5-6 hours out of them even while drinking and snacking.
Packaging is an elegant square case with a metallic finish and the LM logo.
Bottom Line: If you looking for a fresh new look for spring and summer, Laura Mercier has you covered! Her new Creme Smooth Lip Colours are rich in pigment, smooth and creamy to wear and very low maintenance. I also love the fact that all of shades are permanent to the line!
