The new Laura Mercier Velour Extreme Matte Lipstick, looks truly delightful. It comes in 24 shades ranging from reds to oranges, and nudes to purples. Personally, I’m a fan of matte lipsticks, I love the look! However, I know a lot of you aren’t, however, even if you’re not a fan I recommend taking a look at these matte lipsticks. They may surprise you;)

 

What is the Laura Mercier Velour Extreme Matte Lipstick?

The Velour Extreme Matte Lipsticks are pretty unique in their packaging and application. They come in a sleek, twistable tube which makes it really easy to apply with. The application is similar to the Caviar Sticks also by Laura Mercier. The idea of the unique applicator is so that the application is easy to apply and more precise, so that even without lipliner, you can achieve that sharp edge to your lips. Another feature I love, that many people don’t know about is the in-built sharpener, if you open the coloured piece at the bottom you’ll find it!

 

The Colours

The colour range is really spectacular! With 24 different colours, be assured, you’ll find one that you love. However, like all lipsticks, some colours apply better and nicer than other ones. On the whole though, the colours apply beautifully and are not drying out on the lips at all. The bullet style tip really makes the lipstick glide on with ease and perfection. They don’t transfer and they last really nicely. Below is a breakdown of the colours.

My Thoughts

I think the Laura Mercier Velour Extreme Matte Lipstick set is pretty impressive indeed. The colours are bold and bright and apply really nicely with no bleed or smudging, even after wearing for a few hours and they create a super sharp line without any lipliner! They are really comfortable to wear and feel like nothing is on the lips. I personally didn’t find them drying on my lips but if you are concerned then I recommend applying a lip primer before you apply the lipstick. All in all, a great product and I am definitely a fan! Have you used any of the Velour Extreme Matte Lipstick set? Which one was your favourite and why?

Laura Mercier Velour Extreme Matte Lipstick can be bought from Johnlewis.com for £22.

    I’m a big fan of matte lip products so I own quite a few of these Laura Mercier lipsticks. They truly are smudge proof and “water glass proof” which is wonderful since I can’t stay away from drinking my H2O! I would like to add in there that if you’re an avid lipstick wearer like moi, one of these sticks will last you a good amount of time. Since I wear these and love them, I’ll be sure to get myself a new stick of “It Girl”. Thanks Hollie!

      It Girl is a beautiful colour- good choice! Like you say, these sticks will last a really long time making them worth every penny:)

      Thanks for stopping by!

    The problem with pencil lipstick or liners is sharpeners, at least for me. I always find myself in a helpless situation whenever I couldn’t use my stick just because it needs to be sharpened, lol. This product’s built-in sharpener answer that problem, which is very ideal. I love matte lipstick as well and soon as I found out how convenient it is to use matte other than any kind of lipsticks; they’re the ones I’m using regularly. I haven’t used this brand before; so I’m wondering, does it say how long time it last upon wearing?

    • Hollie

      Yes, the built in sharpener is pretty genius. I love that feature! It is long lasting, it doesn’t say how long it is supposed to last but from experience it lasts about 7-9 hours well.
