Laura Mercier Violet Lip Glacé

When it comes to lip products, Laura Mercier tops my list because my lips always feel moisturized, the products go on smooth and the colors jive with my skintone.

Today, it's about their Lip Glacé in Violet.

The name of this color is a bit deceiving.  Yes, there's a hint of violet but it is very subtle.  As you can see, it looks dark on the tube compared to the light rosy hue once applied.  It has just the right amount of sparkle and shine which goes well with the color - it makes the lips look brighter and, in my opinion, feminine.

The formula itself is just right.  What that means for me is that it's not runny nor is it too thick.  It's a happy middle which allows the gloss to stay put for a decent amount of time without feeling heavy or icky.  It did not bleed outside the lip line and my lipstick stayed put.

Personally, I love that the lip gloss comes has a vanilla flavor.  I hate glosses with strong flavor - this is one of the few I can stand.

If you want a natural look, this is a great color to wear.  You can use it alone or on top of a nude or light pink lipstick.  I find that it stays on longer with the latter.

There are 4 more colors for me to share, so keep an eye out for it.
