12 Days Of Lipstick #1 – Revlon Cherries In The Snow

 I owe this lipstick purchase to my blogging friend Fee from MakeupSavvy. It’s been a firsm favourite of hers for some time and when the festive season rolls around it’s always top of her list of recommendations so this year I finally bit the (lipstick) bullet and bought it. The finish is satin and it applies beautifully, very opaque but as with all brights such as this a lip liner is required to prevent bleeding!

The packaging is classic and could definitely stand to be updated but there’s something almost vintage about it so perhaps if they leave it a few years it will look like it was designed that way.. it definitely wouldn’t have looked out of place on my Grandma’s dresser when I was a child. As reds go it’s in my favourite pinky toned category, very flattering against my skin and much more so than its pillarbox counterparts but over the next 12 days I will show you a few variants. They will mostly be reds/brights because after all this is a Christmas series but I will throw in some more wearable winter shades too.. just don’t expect any nudes.

    You should try the collection 2000 little mix lipstick in perrie. IT is a lovely purple colour.

    One of my all time favourite lipsticks! 🙂 Such a pretty colour and finish and not at all drying. I find the lasting time really good too. It definitely looks more pinky red on me, but isn’t that part of the beauty of lipstick? It doesn’t look identical on everyone?!

    Cherries in the Snow was the very first lipstick I ever tried on. It was 1957 and I was a six-year-old playing dress-up with my cousins. Fast-forward 56 years. After reading this post, I thought, “I’ll try it again…It will be like coming full circle.” I bought a tube at the local drug store, took it home and put it on over a berry-colored lipliner pencil I had on hand. It looks fantastic! I had been looking for a cherry-colored lipstick for the holidays and this one really suits me, brightens my complexion and is the perfect red to wear with platinum-white hair. And it wears longer than average. Another plus – it’s moisturizing without smearing. Thanks for the tip!

      That’s a brilliant story! I remember the first lipstick I stole from my Grandma haha.. it was No7 I think and looked super dark in the tube but so super sheer and glossy.. I used to wear and it around the house and pretend I was Princess Leia.. not weird at all haha. Glad you rediscovered this one! x
