I have been coveting my new Laura Mercier Stickgloss for weeks and have failed to mention it! This has been my favorite recent find. This is part lip balm, part lip stick and part lip glaze. It comes out like a wash of color. I have Pink Jewel, which is pretty bright for me, and I love that it has the pop of color but also a translucent subtlety. They definitely wear longer than a gloss (but not as long as lipstick) and also hydrate your lips so you avoid cracking that sometimes occurs with matte lipstick. And it isn’t sticky like gloss so you don’t have to worry when that wind blows your hair in your face.
I should also mention Laura Mercier Lip Balm SPF 15. It is packaged just like a lip stick, but is actually a nourishing balm that smells slightly of vanilla. I keep on at my desk and I really have seen improvement in the appearance of my lips during this dry winter.
