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.
