Laura Mercier Myth Rouge Nouveau Weightless Lip Colour
Laura Mercier Myth Rouge Nouveau Weightless Lip Colour

Laura Mercier Myth Rouge Nouveau Weightless Lip Colour ($25.00 for 0.06 oz.) is described as a “plum rose.” It’s a reddish plum with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. Givenchy Violine Precieux (312) (LE, $36.00) is very similar. Tom Ford Beauty Casablanca (P, $45.00) is more muted, less red. MAC Deliciously Forbidden (LE, $16.00) is slightly more plum. MAC Craving (P, $16.00) is more muted, less red. See comparison swatches.

The texture is lightly creamy, smooth, and glides right onto the lips without dragging or pulling. There are three types of finishes in this formula, and Myth is matte (Laura Mercier made it easy to remember–the first letter of the name corresponds with the finish, e.g. M for Matte). It’s comfortable to wear for the five hours it lasts, though I would say it is only lightly hydrating. It had excellent full color coverage, but the selling feature of this formula is really how lightweight it feels when worn. You still get the coverage of a traditional matte lipstick, but it doesn’t cling or feel heavy at all. It has no discernible scent or taste. The one knock I have against this product is the size–it’s a mere 0.06 oz., and the average lipstick hovers between 0.10 and 0.12 oz. Even for formulas I’ve seen in the slimmer, twist-up bullets, product size is around 0.08 oz.

    Mattes always dry me out, my lips seriously suck the moisture out of everything! I think sometimes I just like seeing your picture for the face makeup even if I’m not interested in the product! Haha! It still surprises me how different you look without your bottom liner.

  3. Ohh, I like this..I’m a huge fan of matte finishes!

    You could pass for an Italian goddess in this lipstick hue! I know you are not Italian but just saying :)….. I have noticed depending on how you design your makeup look, many nationalities and cultures could claim you as their own. I have mixed race in me too and people tell me that also. You are very pretty!

    Glad this is permanent, seems like something I’ll want next autumn but not so close to spring. It’s weird that Craving is a dupe for you – I have Craving and it’s completely different on me, very berry/pink not reddish at all.

  6. Thats a pretty pretty shade and one which I will opt for often. Love Plummy rose shades!

  7. This shade is gorgeous! But I agree with the other comment, it is more of a fall shade for me.

  8. you look stunning Christine! Very classy!

  9. This looks absolutely GORGEOUS and on me, it would actually pass as a “MLBB” shade once it’s worn off a bit. I have to get this one. Annoying about the shrunken size! It’s not like LM isn’t pricey enough….

  10. I’m seriously lusting after this shade! It looks like the perfect daily wear shade for me!

  11. I like this on you! It’s not a shade I’d go for but it’s so pretty on you!

  12. I actually like this a lot! I’m usually not a fan of matte lips, but this one looks so light, smooth and comfortable.

  13. Would you say this is at all similar to MAC Hot Tahiti?

  14. The finish on this is sooo beautiful… :-O

    The colour is super ‘grown up and elegant’ on you! Gorgeous!

  15. Such a beautifull shade. It looks stuning on you!

    I could see this working on literally *every* skintone! It’s a really pretty shade, and it’d make a nice “everyday” product, a MLBB with some pizazz.

  17. I love the shade. Don’t you love that there are more and more of these lightweight or almost weightless lipsticks now? I was in Saks yesterday, and I breezed by LM. Wish I’d noticed this!

    I’ve been wearing MAC Plumful daily lately. Although I love it, I need to reapply often. I’m going to get this one for a different finish. It looks beautiful on you.

  19. I can see why it is close to givenchy le rouge
    depending on undertones it may appear more red I guess

    this is beautiful on you dear and am definitely getting one of these after awesome ratings :)

    If you have the time how Laura Mercier Myth rouge nouveau compare to Bobbi Brown Berry Lip Color and Illamasqua Magnetism? Thank you

  21. Really nice colour! Might pick it up Payday depending on my bank balance lol.

  22. That’s a beautiful color – what I’ve been looking for. Thank you!

  23. Very pretty! I imagined this to be boring, but it’s actually really nice!

    Christine, do you know if this shade will be available at Sephora? It’s gorgeous! Thanks!
