Gucci Beauty Marina Violet (603) Sheer Lipstick ($42.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a darker--but muted--berry with moderate, cooler undertones and a soft sheen. It had more medium coverage, so it was a bit more pigmented than described and more pigmented than most shades in the range (which likely isn't a deal-breaker for most).
The texture was lightly creamy, smooth, and lightweight without being too slippery--it looked glossier than it felt going on. The color applied evenly and didn't emphasize my lip lines. It wore nicely for four and a half hours and felt lightly moisturizing over time.
