Review & Swatches: Laura Mercier Creme Lip Colour in Bing Cherry

 Laura Mercier Creme Lip Colour in Bing Cherry* (4g, £18.50, link)

I've lost track of how long I've wanted to try out one of these much loved Laura Mercier lipsticks, but it's been a very long time.  I was incredibly lucky to have been sent one of these recently and literally whooped with joy when it arrived.  Does it live up to my expectations and all the hype?  Absolutely!  


The shade I have the cult classic, Bing Cherry, which is often raved about on the blogosphere and I've seen loads of Youtubers mention it.  What makes this colour so coveted is that it's touted as being the 'red that suits everyone' due to the perfect balance of blue, pink and brown undertones. 

On my light olive complexion, I find it incredibly flattering as it makes my lips look fuller and it just seems to suit me.  It's like a deep wine red, but at the same time, has a certain brightness about it without being too garish.  Hard to describe, but it's pretty!  I'm always wary of wearing reds because they can make me feel way too self-conscious, but with this I didn't have any of those feelings.  It's hands down the most wearable red I've ever worn.

The formula of these Creme Lip Colours is simply beautiful too.  It glides on effortlessly, is incredibly moisturising and the pigmentation is fantastic.  I also found the staying power to be really impressive too (photos above), plus I love that 'just bitten' stain that it leaves behind.  A winner all round!

Have you tried any Laura Mercier Creme Lip Colours?

  14. The colour of this is just gorgeous. It looks sultry without being too dark and 'vampy'. And the 'just bitten' look of it is lovely.. the more I look at your swatches the more I like it to be honest! I think this'll be one of those shades that you just won't ever fall out of love with xx

  15. This formula looks lovely and not drying at all- which is a problem I always find with my already dry lips!

  17. What a gorgeous shade, it does look like anyone could pull it off. Love the sort of stained look that it gives to the lips, and it does seem plumping as well. I actually haven't heard of this shade before, but it definitely has my attention now :)
