This spring, there are thirteen new shades of Laura Mercier Lip Glace ($25.00 for 0.15 fl. oz.) being added to the permanent range. The new shades are supposed to be richer in color with the same “megawatt shine,” “nonsticky” texture, and hydrating formula. I tested two shades, Bare Baby and Poppy, yesterday. The formula is lightweight, not too thin or too thick, glossy, lightly hydrating, and non-sticky. There’s a burnt sugar/caramel-like scent to the gloss, but I didn’t notice any taste.

Bare Baby Lip Glace is a milky, pink-peach with white shimmer. It had semi-opaque color coverage, but it did settle into lip lines, and it didn’t evenly apply. I think this shade would be better applied over a lipstick for added warmth and lightening. It wore well for two and a half hours. Chanel Rosace (87) (LE, $27.00) is sheerer. YSL Nude Carat (No. 20) (P, $32.00) is lighter. Maybelline Petal Plush (100) (P, $8.99) is brighter. MAC Picture Pink (LE, $15.00) is also brighter. MAC Demure (LE, $20.00) is sheerer. Guerlain Rose in Bloom (LE, $32.00) is cooler-toned. Bobbi Brown Pink Sorbet (P, $24.00) is darker, pinker. See comparison swatches.

Poppy Lip Glace is a vibrant, poppy red with warm, orange undertones and a cream finish. It was intensely pigmented, and it applied beautifully. This shade lasted for four and a half hours on me. Illamasqua Touch (P, $22.00) is shimmery. Maybelline Signature Scarlet (020) (P, $8.99) is similar. Revlon Fire (P, $7.49) is also similar. Chanel Exces (P, $32.00) is more muted, sheerer. See comparison swatches.

Poppy is a really impressive shade! It’s a shame Bare Baby embodies all the worst things about ‘nude’ glosses, whoops! 😀

Poppy looks amazing! I’m not so sure I could pull it off with my skin tone, but it is going on my wish list anyways 🙂 Thank you for the reviews!

You could try Revlon Fire, too, for something more affordable in case it’s not your “most flattering” color 🙂

Flawless face as always but your beautiful understated classic eye deserves props as well! Have you reviewed those shadows? Gorgeous on you!!
