Laura Mercier Lip Lust Collection | Laura Mercier Holiday 2017

Laura Mercier Lip Lust Collection


Laura Mercier’s Lip Lust Collection ($42; lauramercier.com) is a mini lip kit for the holiday season with three Velour Lovers Lip Colors. There's a nice mix of pinks and nudes. The colors include Coquette, Sensual and Boudoir. Coquette is a rosy pink, Sensual is a peachy nude and Boudoir is a dark plummy pink. The Velours Lovers formula is fantastic for a satin matte - very smooth, super pigmented and lightweight. It is among the nicest matte formulas I’ve tried and doesn’t dry my lips out. This kit is a nice way to try out three of these colors and the mini sizes are something I absolutely love.

Laura Mercier The Art Of Exotic Color Collection | Laura Mercier Holiday 2017

Laura Mercier Art Of Exotic Color Collection


The Art Of Exotic Color Collection ($56; lauramercier.com) is new from Laura Mercier for the holidays. Its a gorgeous little compact that comes with a few eye, face and lip essentials. I love the colors in this kit since its all very wearable and easy to put together very quickly. Its also a good size to have in your bag for touchups. The kit comes with four eyeshadows in Noir, Mochachino, Vanilla Nuts and Bronze Glow, two second skin cheek colors in Lush Nectarine and Winter Bloom and a mini Lip Glace in Rose. I love everything in this kit and the colors work really well with my skintone. The Lip Glace in Rose is a sheer shimmery pink and a very flattering one that goes with just about any eye look. The blushes are very natural looking and blend really well. The eyeshadows are very smooth and Bronze Glow especially makes for a very beautiful all over the lid shade. Overall, a very wearable, nicely put together kit that makes for a great gift or stocking stuffer for anyone who loves their palettes.

Osmosis Mineral Lip Glosses In Bare And Pink Sapphire

Osmosis Mineral Lip Glosses In Bare And Pink Sapphire



The Osmosis Mineral Lip Glosses ($19; osmosisskincare.com) are sheer moisturizing lip glosses with a great, lightweight formula. Sheer glosses are what I gravitate towards most of the time and these have just the right amount of pigment and shine. I tried two shades from the range - Bare and Pink Sapphire. Both are great nudes for my skintone and Bare especially has been the most used for me. They are non-sticky, not too shimmery and feel very comfortable and moisturizing on the lips. The formula wears about 2-3 hours like any other gloss and I would definitely recommend a shade or two from this range if you are looking for a good layering gloss or something that you could just swipe and go effortlessly.
