It’s cherries, cherries everywhere as Laura Mercier boards the cherry train with her Cherries Noir fall makeup collection of colors inspired by 1940s Hollywood glam.
Due on counters nationwide September 1, the collection includes six matte and shimmer Eye Colour eye shadows ($22 each), one Illuminating Powder quad for cheeks ($35) and five Lip Velvet ($22) lipsticks.
Like last week’s MAC Cult of Cherry, Cherries Noir features some really striking lip products I think they’ll be the stars of the show.
A friend of mine who works for Laura Mercier said the new Lip Velvets aren’t exactly lipsticks but rather lip stains packaged like lip glosses, with textures similar to LM’s Glace lip gloss.
With a demi-matte finish (semi-matte, halfway between a matte lipstick and a shiny gloss), the wine, berry and plum shades look easy to wear. If you’ve been looking for a lip that leans toward dark without going full-on vampire, look out for Cherries Noir.
Cherries Noir Lips
- Cassis: deep mulberry
- Cherry Blossom: earthy berry
- Mocha Rouge: tawny brick red
- Naked Rose: neutral peachy pink
- Royal Plum: muted wine
I’m looking forward to these and will stalk Nordstrom until I get my hands on ’em!
What do you think about Laura Mercier’s Cherries Noir? Cherry overkill or can’t wait?
