Laura’s newest lipstick hits the nail on the head when it comes to finish. It isn’t too matte or too glossy and has great staying power. It is a tad drying, but that is my only beef. And for these amazing colors, I don’t mind starting with a nourishing balm. You will want Merlot – trust me.
The cream texture is lightweight. I got a decent amount of wearablity before needing to reapply. The formula contains olive oil and vitamin E – I wish they had thrown in a little Shea butter for some more hydration. But it is nourishing enough to glide, not drag across the lips. And the square, mahogany case is super elegant.
In related news, Laura has also released some new shades in her lip pencils. These pencils are by far my favorite – creamy with insane long wear. I love filling in my lips with the color as a base for a related lip color or gloss. And they are allergy tested – perfect for those with sensitive skin.
