Like many, I too have been swooning lustfully over the latest range from make up extraordinaire Laura Mercier. Touching down on UK soil last month, The Lingerie Collection offers the perfect palette of seasonal stepping stones; mixing gorgeous delicate corals, light pinks and dusty neutrals across an array of soft, wearable formulas. Whilst the impressive cheek creme might be grabbing the most press attention, for me the real star of the show is the deliciously juicy Kissed Lips sheer lip colour.
See? Isn’t she gorgeous?
And that’s not all, look!
Absolute coral bliss!
Teamed with a sweet scent and wet, glossy finish, this lipstick has left me well and truly besotted. Comfortable to wear and reasonably long lasting in its stamina, this colour is fantastic for all skin tones thanks to the sheerness of the formula. Whether you wear it light like me to keep the coral subtle, or layer it loud to pack a real punch, Kissed Lips is one of my top buys for spring colour this year.
With a balm like texture and youthful moisture packed finish, this is a great alternative to lip gloss. In general, those of you with pigmented lips might find corals to be rather difficult to wear, especially since the colour can streak. Kissed Lips is a lot more forgiving in this sense, and will provide you with a bright, glossy and even finish that has the capabilities, when layered, to mask your natural colouring. If you’re craving bright, vibrant, sun drenched cosmetics to slowly ease you into spring, Kissed Lips should definitely be on top of your list.
