I have several items from the Laura Mercier fall collection to show you (I may or may not have gone a bit nuts), but before I get to them here's something that landed on my doorstep: Laura Mercier Pomegranate Stickgloss. It's a great transition to fall color, and also answers a question from a reader who asked about a modern way to resurrect the brown lipstick look of the 1990s.
Pomegranate is a brownish red (or a reddish brown). It's a warm color and definitely on-trend, and goes well with the gold, copper, and rich green hues of the season. The semi-sheer and glossy formula of Laura Mercier Stickgloss keeps it not only a pleasure to wear (it feels pampering and balmy), but also light and not too brown. There's more than enough pigment there-- the natural pink (almost purple) color of my lips is toned down and the effect is quite lovely.
The Stickgloss formula is scented and smells lipsticky . The fragrance lingers longer than I expected (some Laura Mercier lip products are like that). I don't mind it, but if you're very sensitive don't order without checking it in person.
Bottom Line: Like.
Laura Mercier Pomegranate Stickgloss ($23) is available at the counters and from lauramercier.com. The product for this review was sent by PR.
