MAC Sweet Sakura Lipstick ($16.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a "true red with soft gold pearl." It's a brightened, medium red with neutral-to-warm undertones and fine gold pearl. It leans warm to me, but it may appear more neutral on those with cooler or more neutral undertones. It had semi-opaque color payoff that applied smoothly on the lips, though it takes a few seconds for the formula to really glide on as it starts off too firm. This shade lasted for four and a half hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. Guerlain Gala (P, $51.00) is less shimmery, glossier. Too Faced Red Stiletto (P, $22.00) is lighter, brighter.
