Laura Mercier Sweet Cherry Gel Lip Colour

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 and soon going to be at the counters everywhere.

  1. I'm with you on the scent. I can live with it if it's subtle and fades quickly. All the LM lippies I have tried unfortunately are not, including their stick glosses and lip glosses. It's really too bad b/c she makes some gorgeous colors.

  2. I tried three of these on yesterday. Very beautiful every one; but I think I liked Sweet Cherry and Hibiscus Bloom the best. I also tried Berry Sorbet. I am afraid, though, that they do not last too long. The colour was lovely while it lasted, but it was gone fast.

  3. I love these! I got a peek of them a week ago at Nordstroms. They put the Sweet Cherry on hold for me when they came in and I picked mine up yesterday! I have very fair skin, but love a bright red lipstick, and you're right. This will be great for the spring and summer.

    Great review!
