I know Christmas is some time away but I couldn't help but share this fantastic gift set I purchased. I'm sure a lot of you have heard of Laura Mercier, I think the brand is best know for their foundations and bases but I haven't heard a lot about their lip products before.
 
The Laura Mercier Luxe Stickgloss Collection is part of their Christmas line and comprises of four lipsticks, all nude and berry toned, displayed in a box in the signature Laura Mercier style.
 
The lipsticks are super glossy ( hence the name I suppose) creamy and really hydrating on the lips. When I first read the name "stickgloss"  I thought they were going to be similar to a balm, with just  a hint of colour. They do in fact have really good pigmentation and deliver a fantastic wash of colour to the lips.
 
Brown Sugar -  Cool toned nude with a slight mauve undertone.
Baby Lips -  Rose toned nude.
Courtisane - A frost finish with pink and gold undertones.
Peony - Deep purple muted down with the frost finish.
 
Whether you're buying this as a gift or for yourself you can not doubt the value of it. £40 for 4 lipsticks from such a high end brand is just phenomenal! As a gift this would be perfect kept as the set or spilt up into stocking fillers, I'm sure any women would be more that grateful to receive this or ones of these this Christmas.
If this is a treat to yourself ( like mine was) I think its a great way to be introduced in to Laura Mercier's lip line, having never tired them before I will definitely be looking out for them in the future.
 
What do you think to the value of this set? Have you tried any Laura Mercier lipsticks before? Please leave a comment below. :)
