a girl I can never have enough milky pink lip gloss! This one is a little special, though, since it's my very first Laura Mercier Lip Glacé. :)
Laura Mercier Lip Glacé for Spring 2014 features 13 brand new shades ranging from baby pink, to coral, berry, and more. Since this is my first Lip Glacé, I thought I'd start off with a safe shade. I picked up Azalea (don't you just love the name?) — a lovely milky bubblegum pink. I don't know why, but I'm always drawn to this type of color. I think it's because I seem to always wear lip gloss over a lipstick, so I always go for a shade that would not alter the color of my lipstick too much.
Now, this is going to sound silly but can I just say I love how the doe-foot wand just sort of slowly and smoothly pushes itself out as soon as you twist open the cap without you having to pull it out. :D It's a little thing but it makes it a little more fun to use. ^_^
Lip Glacé is probably one of the smoothest lip gloss formula I have ever used. It goes on evenly, coating your lips with its highly moisturizing texture for the most comfortable wear. There is not even the slightest hint of stickiness, just a lot of brilliant shine that will leave your lips looking plump and healthy. It has a sweet sugary scent that is strong but will dissipate upon application.
Azalea applies semi-sheer and is somewhat buildable. The color is rich for such a milky pink shade, though the more you apply, the more it will settle into lip lines. It's not very noticeable from afar but if you look closely, the streaky finish will be apparent. I do get about 3-4 hours of wear time which is decent for a non-sticky lip gloss.
I am really impressed with the Lip Glacé. The consistency is such a pleasure to use and I like how such a thin layer of it can have such a big impact on making my lips appear fuller. I am definitely picking up more shades for sure but will have to think hard which colors. At $25 a pop, I can only dream of owning every shade! :)
How do you find Lip Glacé? Do you have a favorite shade?
