Laura Mercier Crystal Pink Lip Shine

Laura Mercier Crystal Pink Lip Shine

On my lips, it goes on like a slightly bronzed pink shimmer. It gives some color, but it still acts much like a gloss–more shimmer than color–which is fine. It’s very moisturizing, feels nice on lips, and looks pretty for a quick lip. It doesn’t have much staying power (fades in about two hours or so), but I like it as a fancier lip balm, actually. It’s not something I’d reach for if I did heavier eye makeup or anything, but if I was just running out to errands, I’d consider wearing this to give my lips a little more oomph.

Pricing is fair, I’d say, relative to Laura Mercier’s price point. You get a good amount of product for your money, too.

I’m just not a fan of the packaging, because I personally find potted lip products to require lip brushes in order to remain hygienic. As germaphobic as I can be, I still tend to just make sure I wash my hands really well before slicking this on, because I really am too lazy to bother digging out a lip brush just to apply a product like this. Wish it came in tube form!
