Lipstick Du Jour - Revlon Cherries In The Snow

Today's lipstick of choice is the cult classic - Revlon's Cherries in The Snow. Originally launched in 1953 this shade is not only my lipstick du jour, but also fits nicely into my 'Timeless Classics' category.
In the tube, this lipstick appears to be your average bright red lipstick - but on the lips this is more of a deep, hot raspberry colour.
It is also one of the most diffcult lipsticks to photograph - I couldn't seem to capture the raspberry of this lipstick, except in a random iPhone photograph.

The formula of this lipstick is lovely - creamy (though not moisturising) opaque and highly pigmented. This didn't dry my lips out, nor did it leave the ghastly lipstick ring as it faded. It faded evenly over about 4-5 hours of eating/drinking and looked as though I had applied a stain to my lips, rather than the fact my lipstick had just started coming off.

These Revlon Super Lustrous lipsticks retail for £7.49 in Boots - but Cherries in The Snow is a bit elusive and hard to come by. I picked mine up on eBay for the bargain price of £3.99!

  6. By the way, why is it that some Revlon colours are totally elusive in the UK? I had to buy Foiled lipgloss off some US Ebayer, as it wasn't available anywhere in the UK and I had to have it after seeing it on a YT video. Also their cream shadows are hard to come buy, mine are all from ebay. Sigh. I wish they did their full range over here! Rant over! x
