Laura Mercier Plum Fatale Rouge Essentiel Silky Crème LipstickLaura Mercier Plum Fatale Rouge Essentiel Silky Crème Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a deep, reddened plum with subtle, cool undertones and a satin sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that did not build up, which may have been due to it having more slip and feeling (and looking) glossier as a result.
The product didn't adhere as well to the inner area of my lips and was more prone to settling into my deeper lip lines as well. The color lasted decently for five hours, left a stain behind, and felt lightly hydrating 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.
