About two weeks ago I received two lipsticks from the new collection Velour Lovers by Laura Mercier. To be honest, I’ve never been disappointed by Laura Mercier products. That’s why I was very excited about this new lipstick collection!
Matte lips are very popular at the moment and I guess that many of you already own some matte lipsticks. Most of the matte lipsticks feel dry on the lips or are kind of difficult to apply. That won’t happen with this new Laura Mercier Lipstick Collection “Velour Lovers”: the lipstick apply very smooth and creamy. But don’t expect a complete matte finish. I’d rather call it “semi matte”. Laura Mercier describes this effect as “matt silk finish”. Especially for those who can’t decide between creamy and matte and are searching for something in-between, this Velour Lovers collection is a good choice. Don’t be afraid of dry lips, because the lipstick contain nourishing ingredients such as mango butter, hyaluronic acid and jojoba oil that will keep your lips soft. People with allergies don’t need to worry, because the collection is completely dermatologically tested and free of talc, silicones, parabens and sulfates. It is said that the lipsticks that the lipsticks are highly pigmented and long lasting. I have worn the lipsticks a few days for several hours and now I’m able to tell you my opinion about these lipsticks.
Laura Mercier Velour Lovers – Fantasy*
I love this color! Fantasy is a warm pink that flatters a lot of people. Although I prefer natural colors during the day, the last days I have worn this color very often. Firstly, this velvet-matte finish is exactly what I like and secondly, the color lasts really long without drying the lips. Due to the mango butter and other ingredients this lipstick acts like a chapstick. Something that you actually wouldn’t expect from a lipstick. This lipstick will stay about 3-4 hours on your lips, including drinking but not eating. Also, it wears off very naturally. The application itself is amazing – very creamy and light.
Laura Mercier Velour Lovers – Cocoa Pout*
Not getting enough of red brown tones? Then Cocoa Pout could be something for you. The color reminds me of MAC Paramount, although Cocoa Pout seems to be a little brighter. This color has the same great properties as Fantasy. It is just as long-lasting, creamy, moisturizing and pigmented. Apply it once and you’re ready-to-go. What I also love about this lipstick, is that it’s very easy to apply, even without a lip liner.
If you are searching a really matte lipstick, Velour Lovers is probably not the best for you. These lipsticks give a velvet matte finish, which suits many occasions. I am not only impressed by the pigmentation, the application and the beautiful color selection, but also on the moisturizing properties.
