Laura Mercier Rose Flush Lip Plumper Gloss is... cute, I guess. As far as lip plumpers go, it's hydrating, comfortable and not irritating-- it plumps by adding moisture to the lips, not by making them sting, even though somewhere down the content list (see below) you can find Limonene and Linalool, two ingredients that are regulated by IFRA as potential allergens.
In any case, Laura Mercier Lip Plumper Gloss in Rose Flush gives an extra boost to the lips, smooths them a little and adds a natural rosy color that works anywhere. There's nothing very interesting about it, and as far as color complexity and lasting ability, Laura Mercier's Lip Glace line is far better (though it lacks true red options). Still, since Rose Flush was a GWP item I used it to the very last drop, alone or mixed with other products.
