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.
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!!”
