Laura Mercier St. Tropez Lipstick

Laura Mercier St. Tropez Lipstick

Laura Mercier St. Tropez Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a semi-opaque, darkened beige with a little peachiness and marigold shimmer. The texture is really smooth, soft, and delicate; these remind me a lot of Guerlain’s Rouge G finishes–just the way the shimmer plays with the lip color and how it sinks into lips (in a good way, such that the color looks one with your lips).

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.

A
It applies and wears so beautifully while looking natural on lips, despite the darker hue, and the way the shimmer warms up the color is very fine and subtle.

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).

A-
It really captures a great balance of shimmer, creaminess, and color to make for a very flattering, easy-to-wear shade. It's not warm or cool but neutral, which will make it appealing across skin tones.

The Summer Season: Laura Mercier Tangerine Lipstick

Laura Mercier Tangerine Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a creamy shade of coral-pink with a glossy sheen and full-color coverage. It’s beautiful and bright without being overwhelming and in-your-face. The lipstick is moisturizing while it wears for three to four hours with ease. It has a nice lightweight feel though it still packs plenty of color and doesn’t have a lot of slip, even though it applies smoothly without trouble.  I can definitely see this shade becoming a new favorite!  It also reminds me a bit of Chanel Genial, but not as bright and a little more coral.

Is this the right coral for you? Would you wear it?

The Summer Season is a series of posts featuring bright, vibrant shades of coral, orange, and pink lipsticks and lipglosses — all perfect for a summer of fun — that runs through July 2010.

The Summer Season: Laura Mercier Hydrangea Lipstick

Laura Mercier Hydrangea Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.14 oz.) is glistening shade of vibrant raspberry pink. It’s creamy, moisturizing, and it has absolutely no shimmer. It does, however, have a slight, glossy sheen that brightens it. It’s glossy enough that you could easily skip gloss if you’re a lipstick with lipgloss kind of person. The color is phenomenal, and the pigmentation is amazing. I truly did not expect such a vibrant, pigmented shade from Laura Mercier!
