Sorry, I can never resist making an 80's break dancing movie reference when appropriate.
So next up at bat is Laura Mercier's Lip Glace (lip gloss). I bought this about 3 yrs ago in the shade Bellini (peach-coral) but because my hormones were trying to normalize after my pregnancy, this gloss made my lips itch and irritated. I am happy to report that my lips now welcome these glosses!
The shade I chose, Ambre Rose is described as a bronze, red-quartz. I love it because it's a lovely bronze shade that makes me think of Summer at the beach when I don't want a whole lot of makeup on my face.
Not very long wear time, but I am just happy it doesn't irritate my lips. It also has a very strong candy like smell - think caramel/hazelnut/vanilla. It actually reminds me of a caramel latte. If that bothers you - stay away. On the lips, it feels a little thicker than a NARS (except the sticky sheers) but thinner than a MAC Lipglass. The shimmer is nice and not overwhelming. It also has the doe foot applicator and that's a plus for me.
My final assessment - I would probably pick up one more shade but I am not really running out to buy the entire collection. Not exactly a Fail for me. It is nice and I like the sweet scent but I still prefer NARS, Chanel and D&G glosses over these.
Retail price - $22/0.159 oz
