Revlon's Retro Cherries in the Snow Ad
Cherries in the Snow is one of Revlon's classic shades (hello Fire and Ice). While most makeup trends come and go, this particular raspberry-red shade withstood the test of time.
Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Cherries in the Snow (440) can be described as a cool-toned raspberry red. The color is closer to the pink end of the spectrum with blue undertones.
Swatched on my skin, it came off as more dark pink/fuchsia, maybe due to the yellowness of my complexion. On my (pigmented) lips, the pinkness deepened and some red showed.

I am particularly a bit wistful nowadays, perhaps because of this rainy and gloomy weather. My nostalgia is particularly strong and that's maybe the reason why I bought this classic shade.
Lip Swatch: Cherries in the Snow
This is such a pretty yet classy shade. You might think that girly-girls can't be sophisticated ladies but this shade tells you otherwise. It's the kind of pink-red that turns on you into a Katy Perry-Marilyn Monroe hybrid.
This is my first Revlon Super Lustrous lipstick and as with any Revlon lipsticks I've tried, this one applied smooth and even on my lips. The color is very opaque, one swipe is all you need to get full coverage.

My love affair with matte lipsticks is still going strong but I'm glad I strayed a bit. No wonder Revlon's Cherries in the Snow has been around since 1950s. This is a fool proof lipstick that's difficult to mess up - a great wear from casual to more formal affairs.
