Laura Mercier Lip Parfait Creamy ColourbalmLaura 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 three I tried were really quite pigmented, creamy, and hydrating; their downfall was longevity was 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 Amaretto Swirl Lip Parfait Creamy ColourbalmLaura Mercier Amaretto Swirl Lip Parfait Creamy Colourbalm ($25.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “light pinkish beige.” It’s a light-medium, rosy beige with warm undertones and a creamy, glossy finish. It had mostly opaque coverage with a creamy, smooth texture that applied without dragging and had fairly even coverage. I had some color gather in lip lines, though I don’t think it’s noticeable from a normal viewing distance, and it only wore for three hours, but it was hydrating. YSL Corail Intuitive (15) (P, $38.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). YSL Tender Peach (26) (P, $34.00) is lighter, brighter (80% similar). Revlon Jungle Peach (LE, $8.49) is lighter, brighter, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Laura Mercier Juicy Papaya Lip Parfait Creamy ColourbalmLaura Mercier Juicy Papaya Lip Parfait Creamy Colourbalm ($25.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “coral pink.” It’s a bold, bright, medium-dark orange-red with warm undertones and a creamy, glossy finish. It had rich, nearly opaque color payoff with a very smooth, emollient texture. The color wore for five hours on me and left behind a moderate stain. It was comfortable and moisturizing while worn. Giorgio Armani A-List (301) (LE, $38.00) is cooler (95% similar). Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Psycho (DC, $18.00) is darker, less glossy (90% similar).

Laura Mercier Pink Grapefruit Lip Parfait Creamy ColourbalmLaura Mercier Pink Grapefruit Lip Parfait Creamy Colourbalm ($25.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “blush pink.” It’s a light-medium, peachy-coral with a hint of pink and a creamy, glossy finish.

I have kind of mixed feelings on these, maybe it’s just that these colors aren’t wowing me. They do look super comfortable but I’m not one that usually reaches towards shinier lip products. Also there is a typo in the first line with “sine” instead of shine.

All of them are really pretty! I’m such a sucker for MLBB colors, so Amaretto Swirl and Pink Grapefruit are my favorites of the bunch, but Juicy Papaya is very nice too!

I love Pink Grapefruit (and pink grapefruit as well lol), but not sure if this colour would suit me… Hm. I might check it out once we are getting it here. 🙂 Thanks!

Pink Grapefruit just went on my wishlist! Because MAC Razzledazzler surprisingly looks good on me, and this LM one is so hydrating, it’s perfect for the hot, dry days up ahead….yikes. But yeah, I love this one!

Amaretto looks really nice too, but probably too pale on my complexion.

I like the look of those, they have more colour than most lipbalms. I like the last two, though the first is a nice nude, it’s too pale a nude for my complexion.

These look really nice! I’m always on the lookout for moisturising lip products that are nice for everyday wear, for work. A lot aren’t moisturising enough for my lips as they get ridiculously dry. I’ll definitely give these a try at the counter. 🙂

I tend to like this kind of formula for casual summertime looks, but these aren’t quite my colors — I’ll have to check out the other shades!

Juicy papaya looks so Juicy! That was a horrible pun! But,it really does and it looks great on you. I’m am so attracted to oranges for the warm weather seasons. I’m just going to have to break down and start wearing them again! This looks like a nice formula. may be worth a check next time I’m in the mall. I really wish someone would add some sun protection to something like this.

Wow! I like them. I’m so over the whole matte, dry, crusty lip phase! Especially for older gals, like myself. Back to the basics feels good, again:)

I don’t think I said they just came out, but I will double check as I know these are newer but not a spring release. This is just when I have been able to try for myself! Sorry for being so behind!

These came out last Summer. I bought Amaretto Swirl and wore it all summer. It was my favorite .. After seeing this I am ready to pull it out of the make up drawer again!

Christine.. how would you compare juicy papaya to Givenchy Candide Tangerine? It used to be my favorite orange and is now discontinued. Just cannot find anything that is moisterizing, easy to build up and that pretty.

Nice trio of shades. The dupes for Amaretto are remarkably different, wide rangingly different. If the Papaya color actually WAS coral, I’d have to give in and like coral. But it’s a wonderful red orange and I have all the dupes. Sounds like a comfortable and hydrating formula. Figured out today that the Clinique chubby stick that was in the Xmas Sephora favorites is not. I got a little flaky, more than once, and didn’t start out that way. Glad I didn’t spring for any others. LM certainly seems to have eclipsed Trish McEvoy.

All three colors are better than i expected.. Love Pink Grapefruit, curious how the coverage would be on my lips.. They are more brown pigmented.. 🙂 Juicy Papaya looks so vibrant!

They are very pretty, shiny and I think it’s nice to see shine in lip products as a contrast to all the mattes ( I loke all types of finishes, and I like variety). However I don’t think I’d buy these as the price is on the high end, and even though they last on your lips, Christine, they wouldn’t on mine, me being a notorious lip presser/rubbing lipstickeater 🙂

Pink Grapefruit looks like that perfect swipe-on-and-go summer lip colour, so I’ll be getting that one for sure 🙂 Amaretto is interesting but with the rosy undertone could lean a little cool on me so I’ll need to try that one before I buy. All of them look so good on you, Christine!
