You already know how great it feels to wear a weightless foundation- now Laura Mercier brings that light-as-air feel to lip color. The new Laura Mercier Rouge Nouveau Weightless Lip Colours ($24 USD / $27 CAD) have a wax-free formula that delivers pure, long-lasting breatheable color in 12 beautiful shades and 3 textures.
The shades I have include Coy, a creamy warm pink, Shy, a sheer warm pink and Moi, a matte coral red. I like seeing variety in texture within a particular formula, and all three of them feel super lightweight on the lips. Coy was a little more noticeable, because it did have a glossy sheen to it, but Shy and Moi felt as if there was nothing on my lips at all.
I love the super slim tube- I think it’s super chic and the slant-tip bullet applies precisely, evenly and easily. The Cream and Matte textures were the most pigmented, offering medium-but-buildable coverage while Sheer was of course, very sheer (almost like a tinted balm).
I definitely like the Cream texture most, because it left my lips with a gorgeous sheen and felt super hydrating. I was surprised to see that even the Matte texture didn’t feel too drying, even after a couple hours.
I like that the formula also is packed with Vitamin E and antioxidants while kicking out fragrance, wax and alcohols. A great product for those who don’t like the feeling of heavy lipsticks or glosses on the lips- this one will truly blow you away with how lightweight it is!
