Talk about a quick turnaround. I very luckily received 10 of the new-ish Laura Mercier Velour Extreme Matte Lipsticks in the mail the other day and knew I HAD to do a swatch post.

I actually purchased Power earlier last week (what a coincidence), and have worn it a few times so I have a bit to say about the formula as well!

LAURA MERICER SAYS:

"EXTREME COLOUR Modern matte lipstick so seductive in colour, touch and texture, the sensation is irresistible. EXTREME MATTE  Mattifying powders and silky conditioners envelop your lips in the softness and comfort of velour. EXTREME CONTROL Sleek slimline design applies with precision artistry. Built-in shaper. No liner needed."

These lippies have a really nice formula. For the most part they all go on silky smooth and dry down to a comfortable matte finish. The colour range of the entire collection is stunning, pale nudes to bright pinks to deep purples, so I think you'll be hard pressed to not find a shade.

There are a few discrepancies in formula. As you can see from the photos, the paler pinks are quite patchy. Goals was particularly bad and required quite a lot of building to get opaque coverage. Ruthless was much, much better but definitely wasn't a one-swipe. Surprisingly, Dominate required some building too. The formula isn't patchy at all, it just doesn't go on totally opaque like the others for some reason. 

I've worn both Dominate and Power for full days and have found that they wear well, even with drinking (from a straw). They will definitely come off when you eat but otherwise I felt no need to touch up.

Onto the swatches!
