Goodbye Old Friend: Laura Mercier Lip Colour Shimmer in Courtisane

Laura Mercier — Lip Colour — Shimmer in Courtisane ($20) is saying its farewell. I have loved this color for years. It looks like a purplish pink in this picture, but in reality it's more of a mauvey rose–coral color.

The texture is smooth, it makes your lips feel soft and nourished, it lasts long and it always looked great with either a coral, pink, or clear gloss on top. It's one of those colors that really makes your eyes pop.

Courtisane is still being sold online for a limited amount of time, and I've been told that stores will carry it until it's sold out. Also, FYI, there are two more classic colors in this category that are bidding adieu too — Iced Melon and Quartz. Oh well, life goes on, right. Hopefully the end of these shades means the birth of exciting new replacements!

laura mercier discontinued the color as a lipstick, but they added that color as a stick gloss, which has a more glossy feel.
