Laura Mercier Myth Rouge Nouveau Weightless Lip Colour ($25.00 for 0.06 oz.) is described as a “plum rose.” It’s a reddish plum with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. Givenchy Violine Precieux (312) (LE, $36.00) is very similar. Tom Ford Beauty Casablanca (P, $45.00) is more muted, less red. MAC Deliciously Forbidden (LE, $16.00) is slightly more plum. MAC Craving (P, $16.00) is more muted, less red. See comparison swatches.

The texture is lightly creamy, smooth, and glides right onto the lips without dragging or pulling. There are three types of finishes in this formula, and Myth is matte (Laura Mercier made it easy to remember–the first letter of the name corresponds with the finish, e.g. M for Matte). It’s comfortable to wear for the five hours it lasts, though I would say it is only lightly hydrating. It had excellent full color coverage, but the selling feature of this formula is really how lightweight it feels when worn. You still get the coverage of a traditional matte lipstick, but it doesn’t cling or feel heavy at all. It has no discernible scent or taste. The one knock I have against this product is the size–it’s a mere 0.06 oz., and the average lipstick hovers between 0.10 and 0.12 oz. Even for formulas I’ve seen in the slimmer, twist-up bullets, product size is around 0.08 oz.

Mattes always dry me out, my lips seriously suck the moisture out of everything! I think sometimes I just like seeing your picture for the face makeup even if I’m not interested in the product! Haha! It still surprises me how different you look without your bottom liner.

You could pass for an Italian goddess in this lipstick hue! I know you are not Italian but just saying :)….. I have noticed depending on how you design your makeup look, many nationalities and cultures could claim you as their own. I have mixed race in me too and people tell me that also. You are very pretty!

Glad this is permanent, seems like something I’ll want next autumn but not so close to spring. It’s weird that Craving is a dupe for you – I have Craving and it’s completely different on me, very berry/pink not reddish at all.

I could see this working on literally *every* skintone! It’s a really pretty shade, and it’d make a nice “everyday” product, a MLBB with some pizazz.

I’ve been wearing MAC Plumful daily lately. Although I love it, I need to reapply often. I’m going to get this one for a different finish. It looks beautiful on you.

I can see why it is close to givenchy le rouge
depending on undertones it may appear more red I guess

this is beautiful on you dear and am definitely getting one of these after awesome ratings 🙂
