Laura Mercier Cherries Jubilee Lip Parfait Creamy Colourbalm
Laura Mercier Cherries Jubilee Lip Parfait Creamy Colourbalm

Laura Mercier Cherries Jubilee Lip Parfait Creamy Colourbalm ($25.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium-dark fuchsia pink with cool undertones and a creamy, lightly glossy finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a creamy, smooth, and emollient texture that applied evenly. The color lasted for four hours on me and was moisturizing while worn. Guerlain Champs-Elysees (P, $37.00) is darker, brighter, cooler (95% similar). Guerlain Gigi (P, $55.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar).

Laura Mercier Raspberry Ripple Lip Parfait Creamy Colourbalm ($25.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a muted, medium pink with neutral-to-warm undertones and a cream finish. It had good color payoff, though not fully opaque, with a creamy consistency that was comfortable to wear and apply. I noticed that the texture seemed to emphasize lip lines a little bit–it read “clingy” compared to other shades (but it didn’t feel clingy). This shade wore for three hours on me and was moderately hydrating. Tom Ford Beauty Possession (Left) (LE) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Good Luck Mochi (LE, $20.00) is brighter, warmer (90% similar).

Laura Mercier Tutti Frutti Lip Parfait Creamy Colourbalm ($25.00 for 0.12oz.) is a muted, plum-berry with subtle, warm undertones and fine pink shimmer. It had nearly opaque color payoff with a smooth, creamy consistency that was moderately emollient and comfortable to apply as well as to wear. This shade lasted for four hours and was hydrating over time. Tom Ford Beauty Ryan (P, $35.00) is darker (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Hibiscus (P, $35.00) is less shimmery, lighter, less glossy (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Ashton (P, $35.00) is cooler (85% similar).

Laura Mercier Iced Pomegranate (P, $25.00) is lighter, brighter, warmer (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Velvet Orchid (LE, $50.00) is more shimmery, lighter, cooler (80% similar). bareMinerals Queen (P, $20.00) is darker, more muted (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

FORMULA OVERVIEW | Laura Mercier Lip Parfait Creamy Colourbalm ($25.00 for 0.12 oz.) is supposed to have the “comfort of a lip balm, the coverage of a lipstick, and the shine of a gloss.” The formula is really quite pigmented, creamy, and hydrating; their downfall is longevity was typically less than similar-hued shades with a less emollient consistency (not entirely unexpected). There was a slight, sweet scent to them but no discernible taste. It’s a really comfortable formula to wear, and if you don’t mind reapplying or transfer, well worth a look!

Laura Mercier Cherry on Top Lip Parfait Creamy Colourbalm
Laura Mercier Cherry on Top Lip Parfait Creamy Colourbalm

Laura Mercier Cherry on Top Lip Parfait Creamy Colourbalm ($25.00 for 0.12oz.) is a bright, medium orange-red with strong, warm undertones and a creamy, shiny finish. It had rich color payoff with a creamy, lightweight, and emollient texture that applied well with even, crisp lines. The color lasted for four and a half hours and was hydrating while worn. Urban Decay EZ (P, $17.00) is lighter, glossier (95% similar). Hourglass Lover (P, $32.00) is darker (95% similar). Burberry Regiment Red (37) (P, $34.00) is brighter (95% similar).

Laura Mercier Sweet Guava Lip Parfait Creamy Colourbalm ($25.00 for 0.12oz.) is a bold, bright, medium coral-red with warm undertones and fine gold and pink micro-shimmer. It had very nearly full color coverage, while the lipstick had a creamy, balm-like feel that glided on effortlessly (almost “melting” against the warmth of the lips) that left a glossier finish than other shades. It was a bit more emollient as a result, so it can slide around more, though I did not personally experience feathering. This shade lasted for four hours on me, and it was moisturizing over time. Guerlain Poppy Cap (020) (P, $32.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). MAC Cherry Glaze (LE, $20.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Estee Lauder Envious (P, $32.00) is warmer (90% similar).

Laura Mercier Iced Pomegranate Lip Parfait Creamy Colourbalm
Laura Mercier Iced Pomegranate Lip Parfait Creamy Colourbalm

Laura Mercier Iced Pomegranate Lip Parfait Creamy Colourbalm ($25.00 for 0.12oz.) is a medium-dark, reddish plum with subtle, warm undertones and a natural sheen. It had mostly opaque color payoff with a very smooth, creamy, and balm-like texture that was fairly emollient. The texture is thin enough that it doesn’t feel slippery, but feathering might be a concern for those more prone to it (I didn’t experience it, to be clear). This shade lasted for four and a half hours on me and was hydrating. Estee Lauder Thrilling (P, $32.00) is darker, less glossy (90% similar). Urban Decay Manic (P, $17.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Smashbox Rose B4 Bros (P, $24.00) is lighter (90% similar).

Laura Mercier Cinnful Lip Parfait Creamy Colourbalm ($25.00 for 0.12oz.) is a muted, medium rosy brown with warm undertones and a natural sheen.

Laura Mercier Red Velvet Lip Parfait Creamy Colourbalm ($25.00 for 0.12oz.) is a bright, pinky-red with subtle, warm undertones and a natural sheen. It had mostly opaque pigmentation, though there was a little more translucency across the board. The consistency was creamy and smooth, which made it comfortable to wear and apply, and I noticed this shade had a bit less slip than the other two. It lasted for four and a half hours on me and was moisturizing over time. Revlon 5th Ave. Red (LE, $7.99) is darker (90% similar). Urban Decay Sheer F-Bomb (DC, $22.00) is lighter (90% similar).

Laura Mercier Extreme Neutrals Eyeshadow Palette

Laura Mercier Extreme Neutrals Eyeshadow Palette
Laura Mercier Extreme Neutrals Eyeshadow Palette

Laura Mercier Extreme Neutrals Eyeshadow Palette ($58.00 for 0.356 oz.) is a set of twelve shades with a general neutral-leaning vibe. Two shades–both in the purple family–are the only non-standard neutrals (your browns, beiges, etc.). There are so many neutral palettes available that it seems like any new-to-market palette should be exceptionally high quality in order to compete with all those other neutral palettes, and this one isn’t. There are several shades that miss here, primarily with respect to pigmentation and texture.

Dune is a medium, warm-toned brown with a matte finish. It had good color payoff with a smooth, silky texture that was blendable and lasted for eight hours.

See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Wind is a light, peachy beige with warm undertones and a matte finish.

Dust is a light-medium, peachy gold with warm undertones and a soft, frosted finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff with a soft, lightly loose texture that blended well but tended to sheer out slightly. It started to fade after seven and a half hours of wear. MAC Photosphere (LE, $22.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Urban Decay Bathwater (LE, $19.00) is darker (95% similar). NARS L'Amour, Toujours L'Amour #2 (LE, $25.00) is more shimmery (95% similar).

See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Earth is a dark, taupe brown with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was very soft and finely-milled, but it tended to sheer out and was difficult to blend out, as it looked patchy and uneven on bare skin. It is also the type of texture that darkens when applied directly to the skin compared to how it appears in the pan. It lasted for seven and a half hours for me. MAC Mystery (P, $16.00) is warmer (95% similar). Make Up For Ever M106 Slate (P, $21.00) is cooler (95% similar).

See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Bone is a muted, light-medium yellowed beige with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good color payoff, but the texture was a little dusty and could look dry on the skin (if you have oilier lids, I don’t think it would be an issue, though). This shade wore for seven and a half hours before fading. bareMinerals Daydream (LE) is lighter (95% similar). Too Faced Tufted Suede (LE, $16.00) is darker (95% similar). Tarte Nudes (LE) is less pigmented (95% similar). MAC Tabby (LE, $22.00) is lighter (95% similar). Too Faced Banana Date (LE, $16.00) is cooler (95% similar).

Anastasia Custard (P, $12.00) is darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Choco Glace is a medium-dark, reddish brown with a sparkling, pearly sheen. The underlying finish was more of a satin/pearl hybrid, but there was looser sparkle and micro-shimmer that tended to get everywhere but where you intended. It had good color payoff and blended out decently, except for the sparkly bits. Most of the eyeshadow wore well for eight hours with little fall out, but most of the fall out occurred during initial application. Anastasia Antique Bronze (P, $12.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Guerlain Petrouchka #5 (LE) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Laura Mercier Burnished Rose (LE, $23.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Urban Decay Lost (P, $19.00) is more shimmery, warmer (90% similar).

Violet Sugar is a muted, medium-dark silvery purple with cool undertones and a soft, frosted shimmer-sheen finish. It had semi-sheer color payoff with a dusty, drier texture that was prone to sheering out when applied to the lid. This one requires a good, lightly tacky base/primer to perform well.
