Laura Mercier Iced Pomegranate Lip Parfait Creamy Colourbalm ($25.00 for 0.12oz.) is a medium-dark, reddish plum with subtle, warm undertones and a natural sheen. It had mostly opaque color payoff with a very smooth, creamy, and balm-like texture that was fairly emollient. The texture is thin enough that it doesn’t feel slippery, but feathering might be a concern for those more prone to it (I didn’t experience it, to be clear).

Laura Mercier Cinnful Lip Parfait Creamy Colourbalm ($25.00 for 0.12oz.) is a muted, medium rosy brown with warm undertones and a natural sheen.

Laura Mercier Red Velvet Lip Parfait Creamy Colourbalm ($25.00 for 0.12oz.) is a bright, pinky-red with subtle, warm undertones and a natural sheen. It had mostly opaque pigmentation, though there was a little more translucency across the board. The consistency was creamy and smooth, which made it comfortable to wear and apply, and I noticed this shade had a bit less slip than the other two. It lasted for four and a half hours on me and was moisturizing over time. Urban Decay Sheer F-Bomb (DC, $22.00) is lighter (90% similar). Chanel Dimitri (442) (P, $37.00) is warmer (90% similar).

Tom Ford Beauty Devil Inside (Lip Color) (PiP, ) is warmer (85% similar). Maybelline On Fire Red (DC, $7.99) is brighter, warmer (85% similar).

FORMULA OVERVIEW | Laura 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 formula is really quite pigmented, creamy, and hydrating; their downfall is longevity was typically 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!

I love all of these, both the finish and the shades! I am very tempted to get at least red velvet but I am afraid these would feather on me. I know you don’t usually have this problem but do you think these are prone to feathering, Christine?

The finish is amazing. They’re so comfortable to wear. It is possible that feathering is an issue, since they are more emollient 🙁

The colors are pretty, esp. love Iced Pomegranate, but not a fan of lipsticks with flat bullet tops, feel like it’s hard to get the corners without going outside the lip lines.

Wow, these are really pretty. I’m actually surprised by these as I didn’t expect the coverage to be as good as it appears. In fact, I wasn’t even considering any of them. I like all three shades but am leaning toward Pomegranate and Cinnful. Thanks for your review!

I really like these. I love all three shades but Pomegranate and Red Velvet shades would obviously be best. If you had to choose between Sheer F-Bomb and Red Velvet, which would you choose?

All of these are gorgeous! I love how the two more colorful ones have a nice translucency without a loss of smoothness, no patchiness either. Iced Pomegranate is the prettier of these, Cinnful the most easily wearable.

Yes that Cinnful is really pretty. I’ve never tried any LM lippies- ever. So pleased you posted a review of these Christine. I’d be willing to try one or two out- I’m always looking for ones that make my lips feel good and don’t burn! Nice choice of shades too- all look good on you!

Revlon lip butters work, but the problem is longevity. They’re done in like two hours. I’ve been looking at these and bite’s new formula. I think I’ll at least try them.

Omgosh these look super creamy!!
All three look great, but I really like the Iced Pomegranate & Cinnful.
I wonder if these would be more prone to melting since they are so balmy & emollient.

I’ve been bummed that my UD Sheer Revolution Lipstick in Liar is no longer firm in the lipstick tube. Like when I touch/nudge the lipstick, it’s movable. I’m not sure what to do. 🙁 Anyone else having this problem with UD lippies?

Loved them all… Esp cinnful…. Nice shade; good for work; will keep my lips moisturised; and I don’t worry about reapplication as long as the layers dont pile up and look horrendous.

These are really pretty but for some reason on my mobile device, I’m seeing other pictures spliced into the swatches, like UD Revolution lipstick pictures instead of lip swatches. I’ve tried reloading, using data instead of wifi, etc
