The Laura Mercier Velour Extreme Matte Lipsticks are amaaazing! If you are looking for fabulous, easy to use lipsticks, then you’ve come to the right place! These lipsticks come in 24 shades ranging from reds to oranges, and nudes to purples. Personally, I’m a fan of matte lipsticks because I prefer 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 because they are bomb!

What are the Laura Mercier Velour Extreme Matte Lipsticks?

The Velour Extreme Matte Lipsticks are pretty unique in just about everything, from their packaging to their 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 and more precise so that even without lipliner, you can achieve that sharp edge to your lips that we all love! Another unique feature that sets these lipsticks apart from all the others is the built-in sharpener. I know many people are unaware of this, but if you open the coloured piece at the bottom you’ll find it! Pure genius, not to mention convenient!

The Colours

The colour range is really spectacular! With 24 different colours, be assured, you’ll find one that will suit you. On the whole, the colours apply beautifully and smoothly but, like most lipsticks, some of the colours apply better and nicer than other ones. The bullet-style tip makes the lipstick glide on with ease and perfection, it shows how the tip can make all the difference in the application. I like how the Velour Matte Lipsticks aren’t drying on my lips and nor do they transfer. They last really nicely throughout the day.

Below is a breakdown of the colours.

My Thoughts

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 the lipsticks for a few hours they still look flawless!

One of the best features of these lipsticks is that you can simplify your makeup routine. Since they create a super-sharp line without any lip liner, you get to skip the lipliner! I like a product that saves me time!

The lipsticks are really comfortable to wear, in fact, it feels like you aren’t wearing anything on your lips. I personally don’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 is your favourite colour? Let me know in the comments below!

    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.
