Laura Mercier's products are solid, but boring. Sometimes, though, that's what you want. If you find yourself in that boat, congrats. I have the lipgloss for you!
I have two 0.1oz mini Lip Glacés, but the full size lipglosses are 0.15oz. (If these look like someone smooshed them, though, that's why!) The product comes in 25 shades, nearly all of which are some variation of light to medium pink.
The product applies with a doe-foot applicator. The texture isn't sticky, but it's on the thick side. It feels like something that might harden on your lips, as if it were paint that is perpetually wet.

Bare Pink is a peachy, warm-leaning baby pink.
Baby Doll is a cooler, darker bubblegum pink with a hint of iridescent rainbow glitter.

On my face, Bare Pink "nudes out" some of my lip color. It's so sheer and insubstantial that it works as a "not-really-a-nude-lip-but-we'll-pretend-because-we-have-weird-fears" color for even the most nude-lip averse.

Baby Doll is a pretty conventional light pink gloss.

Overall, the glosses aren't sticky and are perfectly nice colors. There's nothing wrong with them. And it's good to have something un-fuck-up-able in your collection. For example, I wore Baby Doll today after I lazed around too much in the morning and had to get slap on my makeup in five minutes. Could it be Laura Mercier? Sure! Could it be a million other brands with near-identical formulas? Absolutely!
Laura Mercier Lip Glacés retail for $24 for 0.15oz, or $160 per ounce. This definitely leans on the pricey side-- Buxom Lip Glosses retail for $19 for 0.15oz ($126.67 per ounce) and Dior Addict Gloss is $29.50 for 0.21 oz ($140.48 per ounce).
