Mini review:

By the way, the Laura Mercier lip stain in Mocha is a beautiful sheer brown-red that adds a little sophistication to an overall natural look (and a little goes a long way) but on the downside, it lasts no longer than 2-3 hours without eating (probably wouldn’t last after a meal!). It’s pretty disappointing considering it’s called a stain!

However, unlike most stains it’s glossy and hydrating and feels more like a lip balm, which probably contributes to its poor staying power.

I just got a little sample of it from Sephora to test out, and although I do like the colour (amazing on warm skin tones), the poor staying power of the product doesn’t justify its US$20/S$39 cost.
