Wearing Laura Mercier Lip GlacÃ© in Rose
Minis rule! — and I’m not just saying that as someone who’s usually the shortest person in the room (even in heels). The diminutive glosses in the new Laura Mercier Limited Edition Mini Lip GlacÃ© Set may share my challenges with vertical stature, but that’s only one of the reasons I think they’re such a dang good deal.

At first glance, the $48 kit may seem expensive, but it makes pretty good sense if you do the math. The price on the set translates into big savings on what are arguably some of the most underrated glosses available on counters now.
I’ve been wearing and loving the Lip GlacÃ©s for years, and while the full-size versions cost $22 for a 0.159-oz. tube, these smaller 0.1-oz. tubes work out to just $9.60 apiece. Even ounce for ounce, they’re a much better deal ($138.38 per ounce for the full-size ones vs. $96 per ounce for the minis).
Not too shabby, tabby, especially if you love super shiny glosses and hyphenated words, like non-drying, long-wearing and non-sticky.
With the Mini Lip GlacÃ© Set you get five meow-worthy glosses, each one packed with pigment, in a range of shades from dramatic to nude, and all of them come with a convenient doe-foot applicator.
- After Hours: a creamy, peachy pink with golden micro-glitter
- Sparkling: a shimmery nude beige
- Rose: a shimmery reddish pink with golden glitter
- Blush: a creamy brownish pink
- Quartz: a shimmery reddish sienna

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. Hope you had a great afternoon. I finally feel like I’m getting back in the groove again, but Tabs sure hasn’t been himself. My in-laws are visiting with us for a few days this week, so Tabs doesn’t have his usual run of the place. He’s been pacing around the house all day long and meowing at the closed bedroom door.
Poor guy… His little kitty brain doesn’t deal well with change.
