It's really unfortunate that out of my entire arsenal of makeup, the everyday lipstick I'm most likely to finish and have to replace first is one that's going to seriously hurt my pocket. Then again it's my fault for even going the La Prairie route in the first place.
La Prairie Quiet Berry Cellular Luxe Lip Colour feels like a luxurious lip balm, looks like something a princess would wear and has a beautiful satin finish that complements and never competes with my eye makeup. Quiet Berry is not that berry-ish, but it is more red than La Prairie Midnight Plum. It's one of those colors that blend perfectly with my lips- they're naturally dark, but I'm guessing would look great (though more dramatic) on paler skin tones. As long as you can pull of mauve and dark rose, Quiet Berry would be very flattering.
I bought this La Prairie lipstick two or three months ago and I've been wearing it several times a week- day and night. I find that I can make it last for very long hours if I apply two coats: first one with a lip brush and the second straight from the bullet and only do a quick touch up after I eat or drink, mostly for the finish than for the stain. I don't know about the "cellular" treatment claims, but when the result is happy and hydrated lips for days I don't argue (much) with the science.
Bottom Line: Adore.
La Prairie Cellular Luxe Lip Colour ($55) is available from Saks, Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman.
