|Laura Mercier Stickgloss in Rosewater|
|Size Comparison of the Laura Mercier Stickgloss to a Dior Addict Extreme and a MAC Lipstick|
When I first apply Rosewood to my lips, it comes across as almost peachy in tone. After a few minutes, it seems to cool down into a definite pink. My mauve lips change the color of just about every lip product I've ever tried (especially the sheer ones), so I have a feeling that Rosewater might remain warmer on people with less natural lip pigmentation. It is a very comfortable lipstick to wear--it feels creamy upon application, but I do want to mention that I think I can feel the fine shimmer particles ever so slightly. The lasting power of Rosewood is far superior to most other sheer lip products I've tried.
Rosewater is a beautiful and understated lip color. The microshimmer and 'stickgloss' formula make lips look rejuvenated and youthful. I suspect this would be a fantastic product to try if you suffer from dry or chapped lips, especially during the winter. The first thing that comes to mind when I look at Rosewater is fresh.

Rosewater is already becoming a staple in my day-to-day wardrobe. I'm so glad that I have stumbled across the stickgloss formula and in addition to Rosewater, I am sure that I will pick up some other shades from the line. It appears that only four of the colors are available at Sephora, but Nordstrom carries thirteen shades (which I believe is the full line). Laura Mercier Stickglosses retail for $22.
Have you ever tried any of the stickglosses?
