Laura Mercier Velour Extreme Matte Lipstick Review

7:59:00 AM


It's been a while ladies! A whole lot of things have been going on with me and barely had time to do any posts. I'm trying to catch up with some back logs and so I'll try to post as much as I can.

 

Anyway, I had a chance to join one of Mark Qua's workshop at Rustan's Cebu last May as he launches Laura Mercier's newest lipstick line, the Velour Extreme Matte Lipstick. He's always fun to watch and I never get bored listening to him. Plus I always learn something new in terms of technique every time he comes to Cebu.


After the event, I got gifted with four shades from the Velour Extreme Matte Lipstick line and a sample tube of the Laura Mercier Flawless Skin Face Polish. (thanks to Rustans The Beauty Source)
I've been testing these out for over a month and I can say I'm quite happy with it.

From left to right, I got:

Ruthless - described as Bluish Nude
Queen - described as Magenta Berry
Clique - described as Reddish Pink
Fire - described as Red Orange


What I like about it...
* very convenient and easy to use since it is in pen form
* comes in a twist type tube and elegant packaging like always
* comes with a sharpener at the bottom
* excellent color payoff, one swipe is all I need, then I spread it all over my lips
* it is very matte, but very comfortable on my lips and not drying at all
* lasts for a good 2 to 3 hours on me
* feels velvety smooth so it applies easily
* feels very lightweight on my lips, you won't feel like you're wearing lipstick
* unscented, it has no distinct smell at all
* comes with a wide variety of shades
* I did not experience any allergies or irritation

What I don't like...
* a bit pricey for only 1. 4grams of lipstick

My rating: 4 out of 5

These are the swatches for Fire, Clique, Queen and Ruthless respectively

Overall, I'd say this is one of the most comfortable matte lipsticks I've tried. If you're looking for something that lasts all day, this won't be it. But if you don't mind retouching your lipstick every few hours, then you'll love this!

Until next time.

Cheerios!
