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. 🙂

Have you tried this or any other Serge product? What’s your favorite lip stain? Let us know in the comments.

    1. Hi Bailey! No, not at all. I could actually lick it off my lips. Shame that something so expensive is such a disappointment.

  1. I think the pinkish one is the best, it will give somewhat natural look. and its really interesting to know that its waterproof. Generally it comes the problem in summer season that sweating or frequent water intake causes lipstick out of shape.

  2. How sad to hear this product was a bust!!! I really loathe red lip stains that make a person look otherworldly, in a bad way!! Ha.. I love the concept of lipstain as I hate hair sticking to lipgloss on windy days…Benefit Posie Tint gives a great color..
