Sweet Cherry was one of the two Laura Mercier Gel Lip Colour lipsticks I picked last week. The other one is Rosette, the more pink but not any less pretty and pigmented. Sweet Cherry is obviously red, but thanks to the gel texture and sheerness it's very easy to wear, and since my lips are naturally dark (much darker than my arm), the contrast isn't too big for daytime. Actually, I think Sweet Cherry is about to become my daytime red for summer.
These Laura Mercier lipsticks feel and wear like a gloss but the pigment and color payoff are quite intense, making the Gel Lip Colours a great choice for an easy makeup look that's simple to maintain and touch up as needed. The one and only drawback is the heavy fragrance I mentioned in the sneak peek. Seriously, I actually like scented makeup, but I expect the smell to a) not be very strong, and b) to fade within 30 seconds. The almondy-heliotrope perfume of Laura Mercier's gels is annoying me a little too much. Not enough to ditch these excellent lipsticks, but I still grumble about it.
Laura Mercier Gel Lip Colour is available from lauramercier.com and soon going to be at the counters everywhere.
