Laura Mercier Creme Smooth Lip Colour in Belize

Wearing the new $26 Laura Mercier Creme Smooth Lip Colour in Belize, one of 14 new spring shades available now at Laura Mercier counters and online

There are some things I don’t mind doing over and over again…

Like hitting the rewind button during that part in Magic Mike when Channing Tatum dances to Pony. Or listening to this song by Flesh for Lulu from the Some Kind of Wonderful soundtrack which, I kid you not, I’ve listened to at least 47 times over the past two days.


(Anyone else out there ever wish they lived in a John Hughes ’80s teen film world? Anyone? Bueller?)

But applying coat after coat of a lipstick in the quest of full coverage color is NOT one of those things.

Maaaan, no can do. Give me a one-swipe lipstick, like any of the 14 new $26 Laura Mercier Creme Smooth Lip Colours, any old day.

I try to stay busy, try to get things done, but I’m definitely part lazy at heart, and it’s that part of me that really likes Laura’s Creme Smooth Lip Colours.

These corals, pinks, reds and berries make it easy to turn up the volume of your look; one layer applied straight from the tube turns the dial to 10. All of a sudden, that girl sitting over there? — the one whose sweats are covered in cat hair? Now she’s also stylish. Now she’s the stylish girl wearing sweats that are covered in cat hair.


These 14 new shades contain just as much awesome sauce as the 18 existing ones that catapulted into the permanent line last fall. Same unscented, unflavored formula, moderately shiny finish and 5-6 hour wear time, and now they, too, are permanent, so even if you can’t make it to the mall today, no worries. These aren’t going anywhere for a while.

Perfect! — because now we don’t have to rush. We can plant our butts on the couch and watch Magic Mike one more time. πŸ™‚

When we do make it to the counter, however, I hope you check coral Belize, bright mauve Fresh Raspberry, red Hollywood and orangey red Maya. They’re my favorites among the new shades. They light up faces faster than you can say, “Make it rain, Channing Tatum! Make it rain!!”

  2. Susan says:

    I love that Flesh for Lulu song…takes me back! These lip colors look rather nice too πŸ™‚

    • Karen says:

      Hi Susan,

      It’s a really great song. It totally reminds me of listening to the Some Kind of Wonderful soundtrack with my college roommate, Shelley. πŸ™‚

      So, lip colors. Please tell me you’ve tried this line of lippies from Laura!

  3. Arianne says:

    Belize! Come to mama! I love this lipstick formula, and I’m so happy Laura Mercier is releasing more. Must-have!

    BTW, off topic but your hair is looking fabulous lately. And you are positively glowing. Meeyow, cat mama!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Arianne,

      Me too! These lipsticks are great. Did you ever pick up the red shade from the Art Deco collection? SO GOOD. Meow worthy, even.

      Love to my kitty niece!

  4. Vanessa says:

    GASP! Maya is your kind of red. You look great πŸ™‚

    I’m actually on an (off-season?) purple lip kick right now… I wish more make-up lines had purple options…

  5. kylie says:

    those shades are gorgeous! i love the color belize πŸ˜€

    i’m a newborn beauty blogger – it would mean so much if you checked it out – eymbeauty.blogspot.com πŸ™‚

  6. Kim says:

    Wow, those colors are all beautiful, but I am digging Hollywood in particular.
    And yes, I yearn to live in the simple, innocent times of a John Hughes film. No smartphones, internet connections, just wasting my days lusting after Matt Dillon or Emilio Estevez!

  7. Agata says:

    Those lipsticks are beautiful and you look stunning as always. I love your hair and the jacket.

    • Karen says:

      Thanks, hon. I got that jacket on sale a while back at Nordie’s (sales are the best!). How’s your week going? Friday seriously can’t get here fast enough.

      • Agata says:

        My week has been really uneventful. Zumba classes would be the highlight! I can’t say I am excited for Friday because weekends are the most stressful at work and I work stupid early hours…but hopefully I will get to see my friends and do something fun.

  8. Lulle says:

    I love how luminous they look! They’re really flattering on you.

  9. Allison says:

    Wow, love those Laura Mercier lipstick shades! Now I wish I had seen them @ Sephora rather than the amethyst eyeshadow that I bought (tho it’s nice too lol)! And thanks for the memories: Breakfast Club forever πŸ˜‰

  10. leetal says:

    i think these are some of the most beautiful lipsticks on you! WOW!!

  11. Lilit says:

    I love love love lipsticks, the brighter and more pigmented the better! I was never a fan of those sheer lip-balmy like lipsicks. These sound awesome. I love all the ones you’ve swatched but Palm Beach and Strawberry Sorbet will have to be mine.

  12. DJ says:

    I happened to be in your beautiful city last week (for the first time!) and the lovely artist at the LM counter in Bloomingdale’s tried one of these on me. Sold! My first LM purchase and I love it. Believe it was Belize.

  13. Joanne says:

    Must get my paws on Belize and Maya! I think this definitely calls for a shopping trip and I’ve got a gift card I’ve been itching to use! Thanks for all the beautiful swatches πŸ˜€ All of the colors look absolutely STUNNING on you, girl!

  14. gio says:

    Thanks for the swatches. The shades are all beautiful, especially Hollywood.

    I love the 60’s Pink color and Brigitte! And YOU look divine in those Reds!

  18. I’m pretty sure you can rock any lipstick shade, I’m pretty jealous, lol.
    I think I need Maya, 60s pink, strawberry sorbet, and palm beach in my life. And Channing Tatum. Mmmmm.

  19. YELENA says:

    OMG – I am from BELIZE!!! I must get this!

    looks gorgeous on you and I cannot pass it up!!

  20. YELENA says:

    will these be available at sephora? πŸ™

  21. Those brights really compliment your skintone! I just got Palm Beach and Brigitte in the mail yesterday, I can’t touch them before I take pics though. Hurry up sunshine!

    You look beautiful and all those colours are flattering on you, especially Hollywood.

    For myself, I think I’d really like 60’s Pink and Hollywood.

    Karen I need your help, I hope you’ll see this message!! I want to order Belize but I’m having a hard time trying to figure out if it’s darker than Too Faced Juicy Melon? I want something darker. Also I see tiny sparkles in it, do they migrate around the lips when the colour wear off? Thank you! πŸ™‚
