Laura Mercier Rouge Eclatant Rouge Essentiel Silky Crème Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a rich, coral-red with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had nearly opaque color payoff in a single stroke, which applied fairly evenly, but there was slight streaking visible along the outer perimeter of my lips that didn't smooth out like it did for most shades in the range.
The texture was lightly creamy, smooth, and seemed marginally more emollient than the average shade within the formula. The color stayed on nicely for five hours and felt lightly moisturizing while worn.

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.
