Revlon Super Lustrous #440 Cherries in the Snow Review

By Contributor: Anuya

Cherries remind me of Christmas and snow of winter. Makeup in winters is a whole deal in itself! So many deep colours to experiment with, isn’t it? Experiment with makeup is a motivation for any makeup fanatic. Those in agreement say ‘Aye’. The lipstick I will review and swatch today is a vintage Revlon in the shade Cherries in the Snow (No. 440). This shade is in cream finish and has been around since the 1950s – hence a vintage. Excited yet?

Revlon Claims:  Exclusive LiquiSilk™ formula with mega-moisturizers seals in color and softness ;  Silky-smooth, creamy texture ;  Stay true color wears evenly. Check all the shades here

My Review:

The name ‘Cherry’ pops the red colour in mind however Cherries in the snow is Marylin Monroe meets Katy Perry shade i.e., classic red meets hot pink/fuchsia. It is vintage in every sense of the word – a slight deviation from the classic red yet just as good. Worn as a lipstick it can really brighten your face even if you have minimal eye makeup.

During the course of the day, as the lipstick starts to wear off, it leaves a light berry coloured stain on the lips. Also, this can be applied as a lip tint by sheering it out and topped off with either gloss or lip balm. What makes it even more vintage is its typical, classy lipstick smell – some may call it granny-like. If you are not too sensitive to smells, this will not bother you as the smell wears off upon application.

Its application is quite easy as you need to swipe this shade only once and you are good to go. Cherries in the snow is opaque and long lasting. Once applied it feels light and does not feather outside the lip line. This is one lipstick I wear without a lip liner. The staying power of this particular shade is amazing – this shade has lasted me through an entire day of lectures, one meal and a cup of coffee!

Packaging: The packaging is exactly like any other Super Lustrous lipstick – black and gold. Again very vintage looking.

Cons of Revlon Lustrous Lipstick in Cherries in the Snow

  • Dry lips may feel the need to wear a balm before applying this lipstick
  • On certain occasions, this did settle in the lines on my lips

Do I recommend? Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick Cherries in the Snow is a bright raspberry pink which totally brightens up your face. Heck yea I recommend! No doubt that this would suit everyone. This is such a vibrant shade for all seasons.  Only mascara on the lashes and ‘Cherries in the snow’ on the lips  – this look is tried and tested. I would definitely go back for this shade (if I ever run out, that is ).

  1. Hey, quick question, how many times did you swipe it in the LOTD pic? Is it that opaque in a single swipe?

  2. My Mum who is 92 years old. She is sharp and very with it!! She remembers wearing ‘ Cherries in the Snow’. I went to my drug store and after going through many wonderful colors I found a lipstick called Cherry Blossom. Since that was the closest name to Cherries in the Snow and the color was amazing, I decided this must be’ Cherries in the Snow’! Now I am not so sure…while I love the color, I would love to know if my 028 Cherry Blossom is actually the original ‘ Cherries in the Snow’ ??!! Any help you give me would be great!! Mum just remembers that it was her favorite lipstick and that she wore it in her late teenage years and onward from there! As a side note Mum wore Revlon INTIMATE perfume, body lotion…soap…everything that was associated with INTIMATE. I will always remember how wonderful she smelled !! Sorry for my long winded text!! I will be watching my email in hopes that you will clear up my confusion!! Thank you in advance!!!
