Ah, what a difference a bold lip makes… I was going for a vintage vibe today, so I grabbed this matte plum-berry by Laura Mercier. Femme is from the Velour Extreme Matte Lipstick line, and it’s currently on sale for $21, down from $30.
I like this formula a lot because it’s long-wearing and completely opaque. One layer and your done!
The formula feels flexible and comfortable on my lips, but if your lips tend to flake/dry out with a matte finish, then I’d prep with a lip balm first. Today I used Laura’s Hydrating Lip Balm, which is just, eh…OK.
What’s been your go-to bold lipstick lately?
