Laura Mercier Velours Lovers Lip Colour - 1_edited-1

I’ve had the opportunity to play with four of the new Laura Mercier Velour Lovers Lip Color ($28 each), a line of very saturated, satin-matte, moisturizing lipsticks. It seems like only a few years ago that lip color couldn’t deliver both saturation and moisture, fortunately Laura Mercier Velour Lovers demonstrates just how far we’ve come. Gorgeous color, French-inspired shades, and a hint of moisture–these lipsticks deliver it all.

According to the line, Velour Lovers Lip Color:

A highly pigmented, moisturizing lip color with a satin matte finish. Velour Lovers Lip Lover is a revolution in matte lipstick that couples delicate mattifying powders with moisturizing mango butter that creates a velvety texture that is smooth, creamy and long-wearing. Formula is buildable, offering medium to high coverage with a matte, sateen finish.

These are true “Laura Mercier” in their formulation–universally flattering shades that flatter a wide range of skintones. The shade I tried are:

Mon Cheri:  a gorgeous true bright red

Embrace:  A nude beige pink with a touch of warm shimmer

Cocoa Pout: A warm chocolate brown

All were opaque in a single swipe, long wearing, comfortable, and beautiful.

If you are looking for a universal, flattering opaque lipstick that’s comfortable, these are well worth your time.

    Sweetie u need to try the new dolce and Gabbana matte lipsticks. I promise you will be amazed. The formula is unlike anything I’ve tried and I don’t even like matte lipsticks
