The Scarlet Season: Laura Mercier Cherrywood Lipstick

Laura Mercier Cherrywood Lip Color ($22.00) is an almost neutral cherry red — it’s surprisingly muted for cherry, but with a name like “Cherrywood,” it’s the color I’d expect. It’s a downplayed cherry red with a touch of brick. I want to say it’s neutral, because in some lighting, it seems blue-based, but in other lighting, it seems orange-based. That’s kind of how I determine it must be more neutral than anything else!

It’s a creamy lipstick that goes on easily and looks a satin or semi-matte finish. It’s fairly moisturizing for such a matte formula, and the lipstick doesn’t feather or bleed on me. I gt about five or six hours of wear with this particular formula as well–always a plus!

What about you? Would you wear this red?

The Scarlet Season is a series of posts showcasing and featuring my favorite shades of red lips–from glosses to lipsticks that runs through December 2009. You can sure expect to see a lot of red this holiday season!
