I just have to write a little something about this brand of lipstick. As a very light handed makeup artist who specializes in Beauty Makeup in mostly Beach Cities, I stopped using a lot of actual lipsticks a few years ago for a variety of reasons. But last year I was turned onto the Creme Smooth lip color by Laura Mercier and Im not going to lie I LOVE It!!! Particularly the reds because the shades are absolutely gorgeous, but also because the formula is so incredibly wearable. Its creamy without being sticky, satiny without fading, moisturizing with hardly any bleeding, and long lasting without being drying. No worrying about color on your teeth, or reapplying every time you move your mouth. It has a reasonable length of wear with NO fading. Colors are true, rich, and modern; and theres a pretty good variety of them. If you get a chance check them out. They're available at Sephora, or any Bloominddales. My Favorite is the Red Amour!
