I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again… I love lip stains and matte lipstick. I obsess over those things to no end. When I saw Laura Mercier introduce her Lip Velvet line with her Cherries Noir collection, I had to check these out.
Laura Mercier’s Lip Velvet are richly pigmented lip colors that go on like a gloss but they leave a matte finish on your lips. The formula feels great, it’s nice and cushion-ey (I know that’s not a word) on the lips. What’s also great about this product is it’s lasting power. It lasts for hours like a stain but you still feel the product on your lips. I’m loving that I’m able to wear this formula well into the afternoon without major color loss. I’ve found that it does not completely dry out my lips either, this product does contain some moisturizing ingredients to help lips in the moisture department.
I did experience some slight bleeding but that’s something I could easily fix with a reverse lip liner… that’s not nearly enough to stop me from using these lip colors. I started with one sent to me by a PR rep and since then I’ve picked up the rest!
Have you tried Laura Mercier’s Lip Velvet? What did you think?
