This is my first Laura Mercier Rouge Nouveau Weightless Lip Colour & I am so happy with it. This shade & type of lipstick won't be for everyone but I think it is brilliant. The line itself is clean, concise, & easy to maneuver as well. Laura Mercier has really impressed me, keep reading to find out why!
From the Laura Mercier site description: Laura re-invents lipstick with this 100% wax-free lip colour that delivers pure, long-lasting breathable colour and comforts with lip-nourishing hydration. The light-as-air formula feels completely weightless on lips. The secret is a unique wax-free base that allows pigments to deliver true custom colour impact. Available in 15 colour-true shades and three unique finishes. Shade names begin with the same letter as their finish, so they are easy to remember (Moi is Matte and Shy is Sheer). Sheer for naturally stained lips. Matte for velvety lips. Crème for luminous, creamy lips.

This is a long, thin tube. It has the class Laura Mercier coloring with her name on the side. It is an expensive plastic packaging, nothing flashy. It has a twist up applicator. I personally like this type of lipstick, I find them easy to hold & apply.

So basically this lipstick is weightless. It pretty much feels like my lips but better. It applies very smooth & comfortable but isn't slick or heavy. My favorite part is that after a few hours of wear it actually fades off evenly & leaves my lips looking a bit stained...not like my lipstick ran for the hills. I can't get over how brilliant the Laura Mercier range is named, how simple! Because Sexy starts with an S, obviously it is part of the sheer range of shades. Because this is so comfortable I really want to try one of the matte shades, I'd imagine they'd be the most comfortable mattes ever!

With some back & forth swatches on the left you can see the color built up & on the right you can view it as sheer. This lipstick definitely as sheer as I was expecting but I love it. Normally sheer shades are really glossy, like a lip balm, but this one is more of a comfortable satin. This is a rosy red shade & I think it might be the most versatile red shade I own. Period.

Here is how I normally wear it, I like it a bit more sheer. It gives me a flush of color & looks almost like a stain. I think it is really pretty against my fair skin, a tinge of Snow White if you will!

So there you have it! Definitely not what I was expecting but a wonderful surprise instead! I definitely want to try other shades in this line, I think I want to check out Mink & Coy next! I think another beautiful sheer in this line would probably be Sin... it looks ravishing!

You can purchase Laura Mercier products from their site, Nordstrom, Sephora, & wherever Laura Mercier products are sold.
