A February Treat

LMRSThe first February was a Friday last week and I thought that the combination of the beginning of my birth month and a long weekend was just the perfect (albeit slightly irrational) reason for me to get a new lipstick! A pink lipstick in particular, it being the month of love and all. ♥ I initially wanted one of the new Bobbi Brown matte lip colors, but the shade I had my heart set on was out of stock so I had a little browse at the Laura Mercier counter (loving LM lately; more on that another time). I had never tried one of their lipsticks and their color selection looked pretty good. It didn’t take me long to find the Shimmer Lip Colour in Raspberry Sorbet. I knew that it was the colour I was looking for the second I swatched it! It’s a “berry rose shimmer” according to the LM website, which is just all things that I love together in one lippie– berry, rose, and shimmer (in the right amount). Hello, perfection.

Now I have no idea why LM lippies don’t get more hype, but they definitely deserve it. The formula of this lipstick is comparable to MAC lustres, which are my fave finish from MAC. LM also offers Creme Lip Colours as well as Sheer Lip Colours, which cover the heavy and sheer finishes respectively. The Shimmer Lip Colours fall in between those, offering great colour pay-off with a nice, healthy shine. The formula wears on me for just under three hours. Nothing great but it doesn’t fade in patches so you just have to remember to reapply more often. I have my eyes set on another colour (also a pink) from the Creme Lip Colour line. Maybe I’ll pick that one up closer to my birthday. :)

Laura Mercier lipsticks are available at Rustan’s for 995.00 Php. Have you tried anything new on a whim lately? :)
