Great sheer color with a pop. Similar to mac viva v but this is more pink rather than rose in viva v. Very natural with a sheen, long wearing and easy to apply. Pinky nude color, not heavy glitter at all~
LOVE LOVE LOVE this color, especially for spring/summer. This is really what I had wanted NARS mitzi to be. It's a great everyday color with some sparkle but certainly not over the top. I top it withe LM Meringue lip gloss for some extra oomph. I highly recommend!
This is the third tube of Tea Rose I purchased from LM. It is the reformulated version that has no scent or taste and is packaged in a square tube. Lovely color that compliments my NC-20-25 Warm Ivory complexion. It is a pearlized nude pinky rose shade that looks like MLBB. There is a slight silver sheen to it, but it is not unnatural or disco ball like.
I love Laura Mercier lpsticks for the quality alone, but I asked a SA in Sephora to suggest something for me as a nice winter brownish pink, I am very warm toned with greenish/yellowish eyes and reddish blonde hair and this looked nice in the store but when I got it home .ugh it was like a 70s disco pale pink with loads of silvery shimer. Now this might look lovely of someone very cool toned but on me it was ghastly
I love this color! It reminda me of a lighter version of MAC's Cosmo, with more pretty shimmer. The texture is extremely creamy, and very moisturizing. This is just a perfect mlbb color
wow. I have found my HG lipcolor! in the tube it looks like nothing special but on my lips it is absolutely fabulous. for reference ppp nw 20 freckles, brown hair. It has pigment to it but I consider this a very light lippie. When I first applied it it looked like I had nothing on but my lips looked plumped, hydrated, and evened out. there is a tiny bit of a gold shimmer but its so subtle. It matches the color of my lips exactly. It is perfect if you like to have that polished "no make-up-y" kind of look. or like the other review said "are meeting with an ex-boyfriend and you want to look good but like you don't care" hit the nail on the head! love this! I might wear this to my wedding bc I am doing heavy liner lashes and bronzer. this will tone it all down!
This is what I use when I'm meeting an ex-boyfriend for lunch. You know, the one(s) you really loved but now see maybe once every few years. You want to look flawless but not like you give a ****. This lippie magnifies my (very pigmented) lips, makes them plump and perfect. But leaves em wondering if you're wearing any lipstick. For that natural Nigella Lawson look. The only downside is that you'll definitely want to reapply after lunch. If you want something a tad darker and longer lasting, check out Chanel Incognito. I'm Asian, NC 25-30 for reference.
Sorry girls, but I just realised that the Tea Rose I have and reviewed is NOT the normal one sold in stores. Mine is from a 2009 palette. It is called Tea Rose, but it does NOT have any visible trace of shimmer. It is a delicate, pink nude with no brown and just a slight touch of red for warmth. I just went to Sephora and bought a full size Tea Rose because I love the shade so much, only to discover that the normal version has LOADS of silvery shimmer. On me, the silver makes all the difference. It's suddenly much cooler. Gives me that mod-ish 60s look. Or less politely, the porn star look. I don't like! Have returned.
This is a pretty natural pink-peach with a little frost. I don't like frosty lippies so I didn't buy this but its a nice color. More drying than other laura mercier lipsticks like the Rose shade.
i love this colour! i was looking for a pink lipstick but on the nude side and this is perfect. perfect colour if you are a brunette with pale skin, it moisturises the lips perfectly and also leaves a slight sheen that make lips look fuller. it is a great lipstick for all occassions and the best thing is that even though creamy it doesn't melt like the YSL volupte ones. you don;t really have to use a lipliner my opinion: it doesn't really leak but looks perfectly natural.
I'm reviewing the reformulated version of Tea Rose. That god-awful, grandma rose scent is gone. These lipsticks are now unscented, and if I'm remembering it right, much creamier than the old formula. So creamy, in fact, that I did not need to wear lip balm under it. Tea Rose is described as "delicate pinky-nude" on LM's website. On my lips and in the tube, it's a soft, neutral MLBB nude with lots of pink iridescence that makes it a bit more neutral-cool; a highly versatile color that works for any occasion. This is what I wanted MAC's VGV to be, but VGV lipstick was too reddish/ brownish on my lips. If you're looking for a lipliner for this, Tea Rose pairs perfectly (seriously, they were made for eachother) with MAC Gingerroot cremestick pearl lipliner. I recommend this to everyone who is cool or neutral, and also to warm ladies who can wear pinky lipcolors. I'm a NC 35-40, btw.
