I purchased this in Bare Pink- a clear, cream baby pink that is neither warm or cool. It does not contain any shimmer or glitter which is what I prefer in these types of colours.
These glosses are scented with a caramelly-vanilla which is hindered by the undertone of lanolin. Usually I cannot tolerate lanolin but if the gloss is good enough I can deal with it. It does go away after a few minutes and there is no discernable taste.
I am drawn to baby pinks and nudey peaches because I like the way they blank out my lips when I wear a smokey cat eye. This is quite sheer but still shows true to colour and still gives me the effect that I want.
It lasts a few hours, not common for a gloss, and is also moisturising, which I attribute to the lanolin partially.
I have been quite surprised with the quality of most of Laura Mercier's products, particularly her glosses and eye shadows in general and this is no exception.
It cost somewhere around the mid $30 mark, but I think it's ok given it contains 4.5g of gloss and is moisturising.
Will definately repurchase, possibly other colours as well.
I have a smallish tube of this that came with my Sephora lip set. It's the color, "Bare Pink". I think this looks great both worn alone and paired with other lipcolors I own. The consistency is not sticky/tacky which is a plus. I find it to be long lasting for a gloss. This is the only gloss I own from Laura Mercier, so I'm not sure what the other pigments are like. This particular one is not highly pigmented, but it's not supposed to be; it's a baby pinkish color. I suppose the best gloss to compare it to as far as color and level goes is NARS in Turkish Delight (which also came in the set). I would choose this one if faced with the choice to repurchase. Once I run out of both of these, I will most likely buy this one again. Definitely a must have for everyday wear or if you're into the nude (Kim Kardashian) lip.
I have this lip glace in bare naked, which is a sheer fleshy peach tone. It is not as tacky as some lip glosses.For the price, I am not impressed with the out of date ingredients, mainly mineral oil and paraben preservatives. Better quality ingredients for lip glosses can be found in the drugstores now. I will stick with Bare Minerals, Buxom, Clinique superbalms and glosses.
I own a few of these and I love them. They're non-sticky and moisturising with nice coverage. They feel really smooth on the lips and last for a few hours.
These lip glacees are all beautiful wearable colours and flattering for all age groups. The lip glosses arent too gloopy/sticky and they come with a nice applicator. I love the subtle Pink Tulle shade, a great colour for everyday/work. It needs re applying a lot but then so do all my other lip glosses.
Only one gripe...the packaging......it leaked in my make up bag as there is a small gap between the lid and the tube. It should seal better.
This gloss is a bit too sticky feeling for my comfort. The pink was a cool tone with a nice shimmer and shine. Would probably look best on blondes or close to black brunettes. If you donít mind a thicker consistency of gloss, go for it. Iíll stick to the tinted moisturizer.
I just bought the lotus blossom gloss. The Colour is beautiful, semi opaque and the gloss is thicky, creamy not sticky and smells great!
I've always had trouble with lip products because they tend to cause an allergic reaction to my lips and they would always go dry and flaky and eugh not good. Even MAC lip glosses didn't really do it for me, I was allergic to that too. However with this product I was really impressed, it was very long wearing, wasn't too sticky as opposed to MAC and guess what? Not too much of an allergic reaction so woohoo! I love the colors, they look natural and glam. Going to remain a loyal customer to laura mercier!
I have this in the Camellia shade that was just released in LM's Spring 2012 collection. It looked a little scary bright in the tube, but turned out to be a perfect pink color on my lips! It's not too rosey, not too light, not too bright, just perfect on my light warm-tone skin. It is a light pink color that brightens up my face. The texture of this lip gloss is not sticky. It smells like Bath & Body Works Warm Vanilla Sugar. The pigmentation is very nice; not sheer, but not opaque. The lip gloss covers the lips in a smooth layer of color. It's not cheap, but I love the feminine and natural-looking colors of LM Lip Glace. I'll definitely purchase more colors soon!
I love this lip gloss. It is not sticky at all and I love how it looks. I got one from the new Belle Nouveau collection in Pink lotus. It's like a pale pink. Very nice! :)
