Every one must own a great nude lip gloss and my current favorite is the Laura Mercier Lip Glace in shade Blush. I bought a travel size version of this as part of the Sephora Give me More Lip set and have been reaching for it every time I want to do an understated nude lip.
The texture is slightly on the thicker side but doesn’t feel sticky. The semi sheer gloss evens out my lips when worn alone and can be easily layered over lipstick to add some shine. The peachy beige color (with light shimmer) is a universal nude that would work for all skin tones though you may need a nude lipstick/liner underneath if you have very pigmented lips. It instantly hydrates and smoothens the lips and the effect stays for a while. I love how deeply hydrating this lip gloss is! My only issue with this is the strong vanilla/cinnamon scent. I’m just not a big fan of the fragrance.
Laura Mercier Creme Smooth LipstickRed Amour is a gorgeous tomato red that is the perfect festive season red. The color is rich yet vibrant and I absolutely love the formula! It is smooth and creamy, glides on the lips delivering rich color in a single pass and the formula feels really comfortable on the lips. It doesn’t slip or slide around, hydrates the lips and stays on well leaving a stain behind. It has a soft cream finish that makes the lips look smoother and fuller. Love it!
The lipstick case pictured here is a mini size that I bought as part of the Sephora Give me more Lip Set (for $59).
Full size lipstick retails for $27 at sephora.com. (Not available in India yet)
