Review: Serge Lutens Water Lip Color

Do you remember how I was lusting after the new Serge Lutens Water Lip Color? I got my hands on it a few days after I mentioned that product and unfortunately, it was a huge disappointment.


Even though I’m a beauty blogger, I still buy into the hype at times. This Water Lip Color from Serge Lutens is a great example of that. I love the perfume so I thought this product was a no brainer but not so.

At first I thought I picked the wrong shade. I picked the “sheer red” that looked more like iodine than anything else. Even after realizing that, I kept an open mind because I really wanted to love this product. When I started to apply it, I found that the color really needed some help in the intensity department. I had to apply 4 layers before I achieved the color I wanted. What was even more disappointing was how this layered color felt and lasted on my lips. My lips felt sticky and what was worse was that I could actually lick the color off my lips. Oh Serge, I really, really wanted to love you.

I hate to be negative but for as much as this product cost me, I expected greatness. For all I know, the other beauty products from Serge Lutens could be mind blowing but I know I will not be taking a chance on them given my experience with this Serge Lutens Water Lip Color. Now the perfume, that’s a different story. 🙂

Lusting After This: Serge Lutens Water Lip Color

Normally, I would not purchase a $65 lip product… no matter how amazing they make it sound. I draw the line at $50 lip products. 😉 However, I just had to have this…


Serge Lutens makes my favorite perfume (Clair de Musc in case you’re wondering) and now the line has introduced a lip stain… a lip stain! This new Serge Lutens Water Lip Color in this month’s Barney’s New York catalog. It’s not available on their website yet but if you’re interested, call (212) 833-2782 and you can place an order with free shipping. I just did and I can’t wait to share the results with you.
