Laura Mercier Velour Lovers Lip Colour

Laura Mercier Coquette Velour Lovers lip colour
I'm a fan of a matte lipstick, always have been but man they can be hard to wear. Often drying with a tendency to flatness they are a rather high-maintenance lip look but as usual Laura Mercier have seen the trend and come out with something just a little bit better than all the rest. Except the name. I get what you mean, but Velour Lovers sounds a little... 70s sexy loungewear.

Which is kind of right in a way, this is by far the most comfortable matte lip colour I have worn, including matte lip creams. It is the loungewear of matte lipstick. Yes they aren't as matte as some (hence the velour name tag) but that's because they have mango butter and jojoba in them to stop your lips feeling like dry worms stuck to your face. They also contain hylaronic acid to plump and smooth the lips - love to have a lipstick that's not just making me ingest a ton of things my body can't process. In fact, as with a lot of Laura Mercier products they are free from parabans, silicone, sulphates and are suitable for sensitive skin.

They are reasonably long lasting and wear off well. Which may seem like an odd thing to say but I'd rather a lipstick that lasted a couple of hours and wore off well than a lipstick that lasted 12 hours but I was left with a weird line around my lip. The colours are wearable classics - Fantasy is my favourite a classic old fashioned red, French Kiss also looks lovely (though rather alarming in this press pic)This is make-up for grown-ups - the packaging, the colours, the finish. I'm can't find fault with any of it.

This lipstick is absolutely going to be on my Christmas list and if you are a lipstick wearer I suggest you go and check these out as soon as possible.
