I wear nude/pink lip gloss on almost a daily basis and if I ever feel like splurging on a high end lip gloss, I always turn to Laura Mercier Lip Glosses because they’re not sticky or gloopy and they leave horrible white film after the colour has faded. Despite my love the lip glosses, I’ve tried a lip stick from Laura Mercier, probably because I don’t wear a lot of traditional lip sticks because I prefer really moisturising formulas and Chubby Stick style products.
The Rouge Nouveau Weightless Lip range is one of the newer lip launches from Laura Mercier. The formula is made without wax so it feels very light on the lips. The range comes in four finishes – Matte, Sheer, Pearl and Crème and there is fifteen shades.
Firstly I love the packaging of these lip sticks, the tube is small and I love the colour and square packaging. Star is a sheer finish which is perfect for me because I’m not a fan of strong or matte lips. The Sheer finish is designed to give the lips a stain of colour. The website described as a “pale brick red”. I think this description is pretty good but I would say there is a slight pinky tone to it as well.
Star really lives up to it’s name of feeling weightless on the lips. It is a stain so I would advise making sure your lips are in good condition so I would exfoliate and moisturise my lips before wearing it because it does show any dry and cracks like all lip stains.
Star isn’t a colour I would pick up because I always go for nudes or pale pinks but I’m going to try and be brave and wear it outside of the house because I think I could get away with it because it’s not too bold and I think it will be really pretty for the summer.
