Laura Mercier Bold Brights Mini Lip Glace Set 60

Laura Mercier Bold Brights Mini Lip Glace Set ($48) is one of two new, limited edition sets that released with the Laura Mercier Holiday 2013 Collection. I’ve already reviewed the Laura Mercier Bare Nudes Mini Lip Glace Set but if nudes aren’t you’re thing you’re sure to adore this Bold Brights Lip Glace Set.

Take a peek!

I said it before I’ll say it again, the Laura Mercier Lip Glace Sets are my favorite Holiday gloss sets!

The Laura Mercier Bold Brights Mini Lip Glace Set contains five 0.1 oz glosses in a variety of cool and warm berry and red shades.

I never know what to call Lip Glace. Are they a lipstick? A gloss? Both? The pigmentation is so incredible I think calling them a mere gloss is an insult so perhaps more of a liquid lipstick of sorts. Most of these shades are completely opaque with a mere one being sheer which is Azalea but all others are completely opaque and have excellent pigmentation!

Laura Mercier Bold Brights Mini Lip Glace Swatches

Azalea, Bonbon, Camellia, Grenadine, Poppy

The shades you get are:

  • Azalea
  • Bon Bon
  • Camellia
  • Grenadine
  • Poppy (my favorite!)

The formula is a thicker gloss with a luminous shine and a wear of four to five hours without being too sticky or tacky. The gloss has a sweet vanilla/cream brulee-like scent and taste so beware if you’re sensitive to fragrance or flavor in your lipglosses. Typically they wear very comfortably for me without color fading or losing intensity through the wear nor do they migrate around my mouth. They have enough tacky to allow the gloss to adhere to lips and wear strongly but not so sticky you aren’t left feeling uncomfortable through the wear of the gloss. Of course, as I mentioned above the pigmentation is the real joy as most shades are opaque and act as more of a liquid lipstick of sorts.

To say I love these little glosses is an understatement.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Thanks for the review! I also love the formula of these. I will definitely pick this up. Poppy is your shade!

  • Robin

    This has become my favorite line of cosmetics. Lip glaces were my gateway drug, so to speak, to this line!

  • Robin

    oohh, They now have something called Brillant Lip Glace. Sheerer and less sticky. Pretty colors, but I think I will wait for the reviews. I love the full pigment color of the regular glaces. Not sure about Brillant ones.

  • Kathy

    You got me at cream brulee. I have never given these a second look…but I will now.

  • Monica!
