Laura Mercier Lip Crayon- Folklore

Lip crayons/pencils are  pretty much everywhere right now. That doesn't mean I'm tired of them at all though.   The more the merrier, right ?

So let's look at  the new lip crayons from Laura Mercier , part of the new Folklore collection.

 Three  shades  are debuting within this Spring/Summmer collection .Shown is the shade called Folklore. It's a hot pink shade , where the other 2 are neutrals. The pigment of the crayon is good , light but not super sheer with no shimmer. It goes on less bold that the crayon bullet looks so don't be afraid if you aren't sure of bold colors. I like 2 coats to get the coverage I prefer and that's what's swatched, but one does a good job for lighter coverage.

The moisture level is good as well. Not heavy,  but  lets say, medium. More than enough to keep lips soft and hydrated for awhile. The crayon  has plenty of slip and covers the lip well.   Wear wise, I got about an hour and half of color with moisture lasting  beyond that.

The other  2 shades available now are Mayan Sun (orange- peach)  and Burnt Clay (deep  brown).  These are LE and $ 22 each.
