Rouge Nouveau Weightless Lip Colour is a new lipstick range from Laura Mercier. This is what’s stated on Laura Mercier official website:
Laura re-invents lipstick with this 100% wax-free lip colour that delivers pure, long-lasting breathable colour and comforts with lip-nourishing hydration. The light-as-air formula feels completely weightless on lips.
So the wax-free formula delivers pure colour without any heavy, sticky or plastic-like feeling. The Rouge Nouveau Weightless Lip Colour is avaible in 15 shades with three different finishes: sheer, matte and crème. You can recognize the finish because every shade name begins with the same letter as its finish; so today I’m going to talk about Sin* which has a sheer finish.
When I saw the Rouge Nouveau Weightless Lip Colour range at the counter I immediately fell in love with Sin. In the tube – a sleek, minimal and extremely elegant burgundy tube – it seems like a super dark plum but since it’s sheer it’s semi-transparent but still buildable to a lovely berry shade. I think it’s a quite unique finish because even it’s sheer it is completely matte, so you get a velvet veil of colour on your lips. If you desire a stronger berry colour you can build the colour easily and the weightless formula doesn’t get clumpy.
Sin is not the rigth lipstick if you’re looking for a vampy plum colour but it’s the perfect natural, muted – but still deep in some ways – berry shade with a foolproof formula that doesn’t dry out lips.
Lasting power is quite good: it lasts well for about 4 hours, then it fades leaving a pretty, natural berry stain.
Rouge Nouveau Weightless Lip Colour price is high since Laura Mercier is a high end brand: it’s sold at $25 / £20 / €27.
