Laura Mercier believes in a dramatic lip and this new launch certainly delivers that. The brand new Laura Mercier Velour Extreme Matte Lipstick range is the result of Laura’s desire to create a completely matte lipstick that’s not only long wearing with intense colour payoff, but also super comfortable. Mission completed! I have every shade in the collection right here to show you. Check out my photos and swatches.
UPDATE: Launched HERE!!
I am really excited about the range because the shades are so stunning and the format makes them incredibly easy to apply. With lipstick, if application is tricky, you’re at risk of spoiling everything that is good about it.
The shape of this bullet and the slim design of the tube means getting this colour on your lips is effortless and also enjoyable. The tip and formula grab the lip line to line and define, and it fills in seconds too.

The texture is amazing. It smooths on to the lips so easily and is creamy and comfortable yet completely light. The shape of the bullet makes it very easy to apply. The colour lasts really well and when it does fade, it does so really evenly and there’s no patching. The best part is that they don’t dry out the lips at all. And they sit smoothly on my lips even though they are suffering a little now that the weather is colder.
There are so many gorgeous shades. I love this shade that Mary Greenwell put on me. It’s called Hot:
For nudes, I love Ruthless and Vibe, and Goals is a beautiful fresh poppy pink. The bright red, Dominate, as seen on Suki Waterhouse is also beautiful.
I can’t wait to try that one. I’ll be sharing shades as I try them on my stories.
