Laura Mercier Nu Prefere Rouge Essentiel Silky Crème Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a slightly muted, medium pink with moderate, warm undertones and a satin sheen. It had semi-opaque color coverage, which was buildable to full coverage with a second layer. The texture was smooth and velvety, lightweight and thin but not clingy, though it separated slightly along my deeper lip lines and was more prone to emphasizing lip texture than some of the better-performing shades in the range. This shade wore decently for four hours and felt lightly moisturizing over time.

Rouge Essentiel Silky Crème Lipstick fuses high-impact color with weightless decadence for the ultimate sensation in lip color. From the sleek high-gloss metallic case a custom-curved bullet emerges sculpted to envelop lips and deliver long lasting intense color in one silky swipe. Infused with Mediterranean Sea algae extract, this lipstick moisturizes and smooths skin's appearance to create a perfected canvas for optimum color laydown. Micronized coated pigments provide strong color intensity for uniform color release. The silky crème formula lasts up to six hours without bleeding, feathering, drying, fading or settling into lines.
