Laura Mercier is re-promoting four lipstick shades as part of the lovely Cinema Noir collection. This is how I discovered this Raspbery Sorbet Shimmer Lip Colour, a rich berry color that's as flattering as can be. The texture of Laura Mercier's lipstick has always been great and this is no exception: smooth, lightwight and comfortable. Raspberry Sorbet is saturated with pigment and stays on nicely (it survives a drink). Shimmerphobes should not fear this one. As you can see in the photos, there are no visible particles or a disco ball effect.
Some Laura Mercier lipstick formulas are heavily scented, but as afar as I can tell this one is fragrance free, or at least I can't smell anything. The other shades that are repromoted for the Cinema Noir collection are Fresh Brown (far too brown for my taste and coloring) and Passion Fruit (a disturbingly light beige pink with more visible shimmer).
Bottom Line: love.
Laura Mercier Raspbery Sorbet Shimmer Lip Colour ($24) is available at the counters and from lauramercier.com.
