Now that fall season is FINALLY here, I’ve been lusting over all my matte lipsticks. I was excited to find that Laura Mercier released a new set of lipsticks called the Velour Lovers Lip Colour. I purchased four of my favorite shades and thought I’d share with you my thoughts about this collection!
In this new collection, there are a total of 12 shades ranging from light nudes to deep plums. Even though it’s a satin matte finish, the formula contains mango butter which also moisturizes the lips and doesn’t dry it out; it also helps the lipstick glide on smooth and creamy, making it super long-wearing. When you apply the first layer, the color is pigmented, but if you want even more coverage, go ahead and apply another layer! Remember, if you’re using a darker color lipstick, be sure to clean out the edges with your foundation or concealer so that the color stands out.
My favorite shade would have to be “Foreplay,” which is a deep red orange. Another color I’ve been trying out is “Cocoa Pout,” a nice chocolate brown color; I didn’t think brown lipstick would look good with my skin tone, but this one fits nicely! The other two colors I have are “Boudoir” and “Embrace”. The packaging is classic, and its snap-cap stays secure so your lipstick doesn’t get ruined.
