Revlon lipstick-Cherries in the snow(440)

So now I am the proud owner of a lipstick shade which has been in the market since the 1950's. 

The shade number is 440 and it is a creme based lipstick and comes in a classic black and gold packaging.

As you can see from the pic above, the lipstick bullet can be seen from the top because of the transparent top part of the cap. But then one cannot get a good view of the lipstick shade through the cap; just a peek. It is not a bulky packaging and the cylindrical shape ensures travel friendliness :)

The lipstick is very creamy and easily glides on the lips. The colour is an awesome raspberry shade or majenta with blue undertones. It is really really pigmented and can brighten up the face. Since its a bold shade, I prefer to keep the face and eye makeup minimal when using this lipstick.

It suits all skin tones. The lipstick lasts on the lips for a good 4 hours (using a lip liner can add to the longevity of the lipstick on the lips). The creaminess factor decreases by time and it turns into more of a matte finish. There is no need to apply a lip balm before using the lipstick or during the wearing time. 

It does leave a tint on the lips at the end of the day. The above pic is a testimony to that.

An amazing shade which can give a pop of colour to your face and a must have in your vanity box, I say.
