When I went into Sephora to check out the line of Laura Mercier Rouge Nouveau Weightless Lip Colour I wasn’t expecting to love them so much just by swatching on my hand. Color wise I definitely wanted almost all of them, but I held off because I didn’t want to come home with several if I didn’t like the formula. Now I’m kicking myself because I love the formula and I’m lemming more of these lippies hard!
Either way, I can’t see myself loving any as much as I love Moi (boy, did that sound conceited haha), which is described on Sephora as a matte true red.
What Sephora says about Laura Mercier Rouge Nouveau Weightless Lip Colour:
What it is:
A wax-free lip colour that delivers pure, long-lasting breathable color and comforts with lip-nourishing hydration.
What it does:
This light-as-air formula feels completely weightless on lips. The secret is a unique wax-free base that allows pigments to deliver true custom color impact. A smooth texture applies evenly and provides an easy lay down of color in one swipe. Available in sheer, matte, and cream finishes, this formula feels comfortable and sooths lips throughout the day.
What else you need to know:
Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that helps to protect skin cells against the effects of free radicals. The formula creates a breathable film that allows the lips to maintain optimal hydration throughout wear. Fragrance-free, wax-free, and alcohol-free, this lip color is suitable for all skin types and is dermatologically and allergy tested.
Moi is a maraschino cherry red with a matte finish. What’s nice about this particular lipstick is that even though it’s a matte it’s not heavy or dry. It goes on easily and evenly, lasting a bit longer than your general lipstick (4-5 hours without eating or drinking).
This is probably the only red lip product I’ve ever tried that doesn’t bleed, even without a lip liner. It’s truly amazing and I hope the other shades are the same!
