Laura Mercier Mini Lip Colour Palette

21 Jul

Product: Laura Mercier Mini Lip Colour Palette
Cost: $15 on Gilt Groupe, originally $39

I have never used or bought Laura Mercier products, but have been on the search for some new lipsticks lately. Most of my lip products consist of either lip gloss or chapstick. I am a big fan of online sample sale sites like Gilt Groupe* & Ruelala* and love that there are makeup sales on these sites as well. I’ve seen brands like Bare Escentuals, Philosophy, and Tarte for sale. During a Laura Mercier sale on Gilt Groupe, I decided to snag a pretty reasonably priced lip palette that had colors I thought I would like.

Left to Right: Cinnamon, Pink Champagne, Italian Summer, Fresh Brown

Shipping can sometimes take awhile with Gilt Groupe, so although I ordered this in mid-June, it came in mid-July! I was excited to receive it in the mail, and so far I’m liking all the colors. They even out the color of your lips while adding a bit of sheen to them. They aren’t dry either, and quite moisturizing. I really like the Pink Champagne color, since it lightens my lip color (I have really pigmented lips), but doesn’t make the color seem too overbearing. I can imagine myself using all these colors for work and at other more professional settings. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a more sophisticated and polished look. I think given the subtlety all 4 of these colors, each would look great on any skin color- so don’t kill yourself trying to pick a shade =)! This is my first lip palette and I’m pretty satisfied. If you’re like me, it’s really hard to go through an entire tube of lipstick, so I like being able to dip into 4 colors at once for an arguably cheaper price. The only con with lip palettes is that it takes longer to apply.

Since this was bought on a sample site, you can’t buy this palette through Laura Mercier anymore. The website has a limited edition palette that looks like it’s sold out. Nevertheless, three of these colors (Pink Champagne, Cinnamon, and Italian Summer) are part of their Creme Lip Colour line and Fresh Brown is part of their Shimmer line. You can also buy Laura Mercier products at Sephora or

Cinnamon– warm brown
Pink Champagne– cool rose pink
(now known as Sparkling Pink)
Italian Summer– warm soft brown
Fresh Brown– warm bronze brown
