The Scarlet Season: Lancome Mercury Rising Color Fever Gloss

Lancome Mercury Rising Color Fever Gloss ($25.00 for 0.20 oz.) is a semi-sheer red with deep red shimmer. It’s a non-sticky gloss that feels moisturizing and lightweight on lips. On me, I found it gave me about three or four hours of wear without touch-ups, which is about average. This is beautiful on its own for a hint of red, but it can also be layered over a lipstick to give it a glossier, slightly shimmered look. It has Lancome’s signature lip applicator, which always reminds me of a bubble-blowing wand! I do like how it applies fairly evenly without having to work at it, too.

What about you? Would you wear this red?

The Scarlet Season is a series of posts showcasing and featuring my favorite shades of red lips–from glosses to lipsticks that runs through December 2009. You can sure expect to see a lot of red this holiday season!

How do you get such a defined edge around your lips? I have a hard time with this, especially with gloss. I use lip liner but have never been able to acheive such perfection as you did in this photo!

Concealer around the lips is a good trick! 🙂 (I didn’t do it here, though!) It’s something I do when I wear bolder shades in a regular look. I’d also say you could use a lip brush dipped in makeup remover for a defined edge as well.

Hi Christine!

There’s two of the reds that I LOVE!
MAC Dubonnet Lipstick (perfect colour between bright & dark red)
Make Up For Ever #205 Lipstick (Gorgeous opaque bright red)

Just a quick question for you, What are you using/doing to keep your lips so smooth?? Every home remedy that I’ve tried hasn’t worked.
