If you’re struggling to get hold of Kylie’s, or liquid lipstick aren’t your thing I may have the answer!
Say Hello to Laura Mercier’s ‘Twist and Pout’
I’ve been wanting to purchase a Laura Mercier Lip Parfait lipstick for a while- but as I’m more of a mattes fan I’ve held back, until now. I spotted this ‘lip kits’ in the Space NK sale and couldn’t resist.
Any product that comes as a 2-in-1 is a bonus, especially when it means you don’t have to swatch 5072670 lip liner/lipstick combinations to get the right match!
There are two sets- Nude & Rose (the only two worth having if you ask me- I generally play it safe with lipsticks so these sounded perfect!).
I opted for Nude- having not tried ANYTHING (gasp!) from Laura Mercier before I didn’t want to get both just in case I didn’t like them- the biggest error in my judgement of late. After trying the Kylie Cosmetics lip liners I didn’t think I’d be impressed with many others, again I was proved wrong. The Laura Mercier Liner in ‘Hazelnut Tea’ is perfect! Super long lasting and doesn’t bleed, plus the shade is such a good nude, it’s go seamlessly under most lipsticks I own.The Lipstick that comes with the kit is the Laura Mercier Lip Parfait in ‘Cinn-ful’, although I’m a matte lipstick girl at heart this has won me over! It is ultra-creamy and much longer lasting than I’d ever expect from a ‘colourbalm’ and as it’s not matte you wont have to worry about getting dry lips!
The shades are perfect for everyday wear, and although it requires a couple of top ups it’s wearability makes up for it! Plus, as the bargain price of £19.50 you can’t really say no!
Have you spied any other lip kits recently? I managed to get my hands on a Koko K (and some creme shadows!!) so can’t wait till that arrives but in the mean time the Twist and Pout SEt will definitely be top of my list!
