I’ve been very curious about Laura Mercier since this summer. I’ve seen a lot of great reviews and wanted to jump in the bandwagon of subtle and elegant makeup.
I wanted to try several products so I ordered a gorgeous palette, a set, this lipstick and an eye liner. I purchased everything in the USA as the prices there are much more affordable than in Europe. Moreover, Laura Mercier isn’t available in Ukraine so there’s not point to buy in France and pay for shipping.
I’ve read good things about Laura Mercier’s lipsticks and wanted a warm rosy color for a long time. I went for a Crème lipstick in Cinnamon.
The packaging is elegant, no frivolities here :)
The formula on this one is creamy but light and glides well on the lips. It has a semi-sheer cream finish. It doesn’t dries out the lips and is comfortable to wear. It’s not long lasting so it wears off easily while eating, for example. Laura Mercier says it has an anti-aging formula but I can’t really tell whether it’s true or not…
The color is really pretty, natural and subtle. It’s a bit too pink to be called a real cinnamon color, though.
I like how it looks on me, it gives a very natural looking without being dull.
Laura Mercier lipsticks might seem pricey but the quality is really good. I got this lipstick on eBay for $12, which is a bargain for such a good product!
