There’s one trend not going anywhere at the moment, and that’s the seemingly never-ending launches of sheer lipstick formulations. Now, don’t get me wrong, I do like a sheer lip colour, but I also like a lot of pigment, and the two aren’t always that compatible. The new “creamy colourbalm” from Laura Mercier may have tickled my fancy, however.
Housed in the signature brown livery of the brand, the Lip Parfaits are rather slimmer than a normal Laura Mercier lipstick, but they do still contain 3.5g of product.
One the left there is Raspberry Ripple (one of the least raspberry-looking colours I’ve ever seen frankly) and on the right is the glorious Cherries Jubilee.
On swatching, both shades are sheer, but not unpigmented, and that made me very happy. Laura Mercier is the queen of bright but natural pinks and these colours (even the raspberry that is actually a nude) are both lovely.
The reason why I don’t like unpigmented lipsticks is because I have naturally unevenly pigmented lips – something you’ll see in more detail in another blog post later this week – Laura Mercier Lip Parfait in Raspberry Ripple, even though it is both quite sheer, and a pink-nude shade actually contains enough pigment to cover my my uneven lips, and be pink enough not to make me look like a corpse, too. Hoorah!
Cherries Jubilee is a little sheerer in coverage, but the stronger shade also helps cover up my naturally uneven pigment. Both colours are glossy without being sticky, and I haven’t had any problems with transfer or staining. They’re unfragranced too, so that’s nice.
Laura Mercier’s Lip Parfait Creamy Colourbalms are available in 12 different shades, are in-store at SpaceNK, Selfridges and John Lewis now and will cost £19.50 each.
