Laura Mercier Rouge Essentiel Silky Creme Lipsticks

Laura Mercier Rouge Essentiel Silky Creme Lipsticks is the newest lip product release from the brand. They are described as a weightless lipstick with a high impact color and a satin finish. There are 30 lipsticks in the line and a beautiful color selection. She did focus on a lot of bright pops of color like red and pink but there are also a couple of options for nude, coral and vampy shades.

The Rouge Essentiel Silky Creme Lipsticks have a very creamy formula with one swipe pigment. The shape of the bullet hugs the lips and makes for an easy precise application. Some of the bright pink shades like Rose Vif stain the lips so the lasting power is excellent.

I really like the sleek and minimal packaging and the magnetic closure that the lipsticks have. As there are thirty shades, I divided the swatches in to categories by color just to make it easier.

First up are the nude and neutral shades in:

Hope the swatches will help you decide on a color if you are on the market for a new creamy lipstick. I think Laura Mercier did a great job with both the formula and the shade selection. I would love to see more nudes in this formula but I think she covered most of the pops of color and vampy shades really well.

The Laura Mercier Rouge Essentiel Silky Creme Lipsticks are part of the permanent line and are priced $32 each.
