Laura Mercier Creme SmoothThursday, May 10, 2012
Sheer is still in. And my bet for this texture in terms of makeup is Laura Mercier's newest lipstick! I've reviewed one shade of this line and will do for 3 more shades that I got recently. My past review and pictures show how this product has always made my strong features subdued with the shades of Creme Smooth.

(+) Very unique colors I got from the new 6 shades - Mod Pink is a bright nude pink while Iced Melon is a light peachy orange

(-) Long-wearing ability is just OK because of the creme texture
Overall, I discovered the great unique rich color that Laura Mercier Creme Smooth gives with a lightweight sheer creamy texture. While it's not too long-wearing or full in coverage, it's a different take on nudes especially - the overall effect is just soft, quite sheer, and lustrous.
