The Summer Season: La Prairie Rose Bronze Lipstick

La Prairie Rose Bronze Lipstick ($55.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a beautiful, rosy red color base with shimmering gold and copper strewn through it with a slight sheen. It reminds me of MAC Thrills Lipstick when worn lightly (particularly over more pigmented lips!), which has the same rosy base but more copper-metallic flash. I like La Prairie’s lipsticks for the way the de-emphasize lip lines (takes about 10-15 minutes of wearing them to see the full effect–the swatch photo is of lipstick that’s been on only 1-2 minutes!) with rich color, and shades that I never quite can dupe. I also love that they wear very, very well–I get around five to six hours of solid wear.

Is this the right coral for you? Would you wear it?

The Summer Season is a series of posts featuring bright, vibrant shades of coral, orange, and pink lipsticks and lipglosses — all perfect for a summer of fun — that runs through July 2010.

Ahh Christine what are you doing to me??  I picked up the Guerlain Rouge G (Berry) a 
few months back due to your reviews and now I’m tempted by all these gorgeous
expensive ones!!!  Btw you would LOVE Berry…not really a berry color at all =)

Oh you should review it!!  I loveeee the color and I’m sure it looks different on you.
It’s like a bright corally pink on me and perfect for summer =)  And I do agree with 
you on the nuances…I go from counter to counter trying them on and loving them =)

I totally agree! When I bought Sisley L7 a few years ago for $35, I almost felt guilty about it, but it looks like a $35 lipstick quality wise. It would take layering at least 3 less expensive products to achieve the same color and finish. I think if you really like a color, go for it. Sometimes you spend more money trying to buy around the one you really want.

You need to stop posting these shimmery metallic sheen lipsticks or I ‘m going to go broke ! I ‘ve fallen in love with them since I bought Thrills !

I want that lipstick. I do have my Nordstrom Note. I was going to save it to apply it for the Nars Sheer Glow foundation. Now I don’t know.

this is gorgeous!!! for me, this is total LUST!!! but it’s so expensive! do you know of any other lipsticks that are similar to this shade but cost less?

Hilana Avatar

Love, love, love, love love this colour. But heck. So expensive!!!! This is the most beautiful colour I have ever seen in a lipstick. And if it was available here in SA? I would have used my rent money to buy it and slept with the landlord. Seriously. Awesome.

Beautiful, I just got Thrills so there is a reason I like that one so much! Also reminds me of Clinique’s Think Bronze lipstick.

To me this looks like Thrills and Funbathing had a love-child. It’s beautiful, but you’d have to reeeallly love it to pay $55!

I’ve bought that color before and used the entire tube, it’s stunning, great quality, baaaaaaaad price, $70.00 Canadian !!!!!!!!!!! I will probably buy another in the future, when I have more disposable $$$$$$
