Beauty Find - Laura Mercier Paint Wash Liquid Lip Colour

I LOVE hybrid products.

So, it's perfect that Laura Mercier  has just created one of the prettiest kinds - a long wear (hydrating) lip stain - with a glossy finish.

I wanted a nice red, and Laura Mercier Paint Wash Liquid Lip Colour Vermillion Red was perfect.  The gloss is very lightweight yet still creamy - and highly concentrated.

Just a few dabs with the applicator and my lips had the full, rich red in the tube.  It lasted through the morning and several drinks and meals (there was a little transfer on to cups, etc.)

But 5-6 hours in, the rich red was still there as a stain on my lips.  While the initial shine wore down, the finish still looked fresh and dewy (or a demi-matte), with no additional touch ups.

The formula is also very hydrating and the color is buildable if you want just a touch of red for the day, for example, and a really "knock 'em dead" red lip at night.  

Another favorite shade of mine for a natural, every day look is Laura Mercier Paint Wash Liquid Lip Colour Rosewood (shown, above left).  It's the perfect blend of a medium pink with a touch of brown.  

If you've had issues with long wear or lip stain products drying out your lips or looking too matte, Laura Mercier Paint Wash Liquid Lip Colour  solves that problem beautifully! - RLB
