Laura Mercier Sandcastle Shimmer Lipstick

Laura Mercier Sandcastle Shimmer Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a pink-tinged peach beige with pale champagne micro-shimmer. It delivers opaque color, and it looks a bit creamy, though it doesn’t have a lot of slickness when applied. The color reminded me of Guerlain Giny Rouge G Lipstick, but it’s a touch pink (and yet, it’s also not pink enough to be like Guerlain Gillian).

Laura Mercier’s Shimmer Lipsticks have a rather strong floral scent to them, while several of her other lip products are heavily vanilla scented (not sure why these are different). I get three to four hours of wear (about average), and I find these neither drying nor particularly moisturizing, but they are comfortable to wear. Sandcastle applied evenly and easily without having to layer on a lot to get opaque color.
