Laura Mercier Lip Glace in Bellini Review & Swatches

April 9, 2009
Laura Mercier Lip Glace ($22)

Laura Mercier’s Lip Glaces are sheer, high-shine glosses that can be worn alone or layered over lipsticks/stains to add a touch of luster to lips. They’re lightweight, non-sticky, have a delicious vanilla-y almond scent, and come packaged in a sleek roll-free rectangular tube.

The lip glaces are by no means opaque, but rather enhance your natural lip color by giving it that little extra oomph. Bellini is a shimmering peachy shade with golden shimmer that, while very subtle, is really something when it catches the light just-so. On the lips you don’t get too much of the actual peach, but you do get a hint of peachy gold shine that’s great for a beachy, sun-kissed summer look.

I’m of two minds on the Lip Glaces. While on the one hand I love that they’re non-sticky and have a great, smooth consistency, I do often find myself wishing that they had just a little more staying power and pigmentation. I wouldn’t say the Lip Glaces are my favorite glosses, but I definitely do like them!
