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
French Kiss: a fresh, saturated deep bubblegum pink
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.
