Reader Review of the Day: Laura Mercier Lip Stain

Reader Review of the Day: Laura Mercier Lip Stain

Anyone who's been reading Bella for a while knows that I have a soft spot for Laura Mercier products, so this review of Lip Stain ($20) in English Rose caught my eye. It's chock-full of good-to-know info, so I'll let reader bailaoragaditana give you the lowdown on the pros and cons of the product. She says:

"This isn't a lip stain. It's not a bad product, but it's not a lip stain. It's more akin to lipstick in pot form. The texture is slightly drier than your typical high-end lipstick, but perhaps that's the stain-y part? I'd recommend wearing this over a layer of lip balm because it's not terribly hydrating, either. It's not long-wearing, which is problematic for those who don't like sticking their fingers in gloss pots; I'd suggest having a lip brush handy for reapplying during the day. But the color is lovely. English Rose is a sort of opaque, gold-inflected rosy pink that really lives up to its name, and the formula is unique enough that I feel like I can get a lot of mileage out of it."

I bought this stain for my mother at Christmas time, and she pretty much felt the same way the reviewer did.

It's certainly a stain on me! The color lasts forever, even when I'm eating and drinking a lot. It is dry, but stains aren't meant to be creamy or moisturizing.

the reviewer is right, its not bad, but its very dry and ive had mine for about three months, and it is starting to harden, maybe that is a long time, but usually i keep stains and products for that long, and they are fine. this product definitely needs a bit of cajoling if it is stain that people are looking for i would highly recommend: nars color wash and covergirl lip stain, both very very good products!
