To all my dry-lipped ladies, throw yo’ hands up! Throw yo’ hands up! Throw yo’ hands up!
If I were a platinum record-selling rap superstar, and not just a husky tabby’s professional pet assistant, that would be my on-stage audience response chant.
I seriously doubt that it would catch on pop culture fire like “Who let the dogs out” did, which reminds me, remember when people were using that in casual conversation, like “How’s it going, Jane?” “Oh, it’s going great. Who let the dogs out!? Who, who, who, who — who let the dogs out!?”
Whatevs, I live for excitement! I want everyone to throw their hands up like I did when I tried the four lippies in Laura Mercier’s new $48 Luxe Stickgloss Collection holiday set.
Sheer and slick, like a cross between a lipstick and a balm, they hydrate like ca-ray-zaaaay! — and look great, too. Rosy pink Brown Sugar, warm pink Baby Lips, coppery Courtisane and plummy Peony glow with a soft, sophisticated shine, and they also make my lips look a little fuller, methinks.
Best of all, because they aren’t overloaded with pigment, I can literally just slick a layer or two on my lips without a mirror, and go on my merry way.
What else should you know about the $48 Laura Mercier Luxe Stickgloss Collection?
- As a set, it won’t be available forever. It’s limited edition, but separately the four full-sized Stickglosses also reside in Laura’s permanent collection.
- They’re pretty sheer.
- They smell and taste at first a little like brown sugar to me (yum!), which fades over the course of about 5 minutes.
- They have a lightweight formula and a slick texture.
- They last from 2-3 hours on my lips.
These definitely aren’t the longest-lasting lippies around…but what they lack in wear time they make up for in moisture.
I also think it’s nice sometimes to not have to deal with the drama of highly pigmented vampire lipstick colors, you know? You can just drop one of these Stickglosses into your purse, and call it a day.
Since Laura’s Stickglosses normally run $22 each, the four-piece $48 set represents a pretty good savings of almost 50% off.
Not bad, especially this time of year. You could get the set, give three of them as gifts to your sisters, cousins and/or BFFs and still keep one for yourself.
