I'll say at first that I am a huge fan of the Revlon Super Lustrous formula so I'm not going to go into that as much as the color. I don't even know why I bought this color, but I was feeling like a treat today and tried it on my hand and thought, "why not? it looks like a 'grown up' color and I need more of those." This lipstick is soooo close to my perfect red. I know it doesn't look red in the tube but my lips are very pink, and things turn weird colors on my face. Rum Raisin looks boring brownish in the tube but it brightened my whole face and I felt like I had that "put together" look everyone in the magazines says a good lipstick is supposed to give you. I'm a PPP with natural light brown hair that is currently dyed a dark reddish-brown. I have a very rosy complexion that must have turned this neutral lipstick just pink enough. As it fades and my natural lips show through, it looks like a darkish pink, still very pretty. I love it, and I'm going to try some more shades like this in the future.

A lovely warmish sepia tone. Shoppers Drug Mart had a wonderful sale - $4 each - so I went ona smash & grab. Wouldn't repurchse as it's a little too warm for my tone, but I can get away with it and it is a nice rich toasty colour without being too brown.

Great neutral color (I am a PPP). Revlon lipsticks are long-lasting and go on well. One of my favorites.

I am a medium olive toned Asian girl and this lipstick looks awesome on me during winters ! Makes me look bright and fresh :) The percentage of red is just perfect for me.Definitely dark for summer but if you are a medium olive skinned person, give this a try !

I picked this up during a BOGOF at Walgreens and boy am I glad I did! I have grown tired of my eternal quest for the perfect neutral/brown lipstick (the closest I have come is L'Oreal Colour Riche "Sandstone"-- if you're NW20, dirty blonde, brown eyes, you should really check it out). Anyway, back to Rum Raisin.. I decided to stop buying light beige shimmery shades that usually don't work on me (I *almost* bought Champagne on Ice) and try something deeper-hued. I was initially attracted to the name because I was hungry at the time. Mmm, rum and raisins... sounds like bread pudding, I thought. It looked kind of so-so through the tube, but when I tried it on... wow. My whole face brightened. It's exactly the kind of color I've been looking for- a complimentary neutral that can be worn with just about anything. The color is a brick reddish brown with a very slight pink undertone, just like rum and raisins! And it lasts f - o - r - e - v - e - r. It fades to a nice stain and doesn't really wear off completely. Only minor complaint is that it might be a tad too drying without lip balm. I'm really loving these Revlon Super Lustrous lipsticks. I think this just might be HG status.

I agree with all the reviewers who said this lipstick was very pretty on brunettes. I love the warm strawberry-tinged brownish red (can't really describe the shade) of this lipstick, which warms up my fair/medium Asian skin tone and is very close to the colour of my moderately-pigmented lips when they flush. :) This lipstick is incredibly pigmented and lasts for hours, as well as fading to a lovely warm raspberry stain. I like to pat on the lipstick and blend with a lip brush or my fingers. For the price (S$16.90), this lipstick is fantastic quality - it doesn't feather or bleed on me even when I'm not using lipliner or lip primer. Like many of the reviewers, I like the see-through lid. I'm not sure I would buy this again because I want to try other brands of lipstick, but it's good to have in my stash.Update 2009: This shade ended up being too intense for me and I haven't used it much. After getting tired of it sitting around, but not wanting to throw it away, I've discovered that applying a *very* thin layer of it with my fingers gives a more wearable stain. I also tone it down by applying a little with a brush over my Revlon SL Fleshtone lipstick. So I suppose I'll get more mileage out of this than I have so far, but will definitely not repurchase.

In general, I have been very impressed with Revlon's reformulated Super Lustrous Lipstick, particularly the creams. I too, remember the often unpleasant smell and taste of the old formula (the reason I stopped purchasing Revlon years ago), and these are conspicuously-- and rapturously-- absent!I decided to try SL again when I saw a co-worker re-applying her favorite shade, and noticed the new tube design. We bemoaned the previous shortcomings of the product, and she said the formula had been greatly improved and to try it for myself, so I went out and bought a tube, Mauvy Night if I remember correctly. I know it was cream shade, and it was love!Frankly, I was hesitant to purchase this color at first: I am an NW20 with chestnut hair and grey-green eyes, lightly freckled and rosy cheeked, so 'rummy' neutrals usually don't work on me. They are frequently more orange toned, but this one seemed to have more of a rosey quality to it, and since it was a BOGO I figured I'd go for it. I'm so glad I did!Rum Raisin is another cream finish, and I guess it compares closely to Rose Velvet (which I own and love) only darker. I wear it with my aqua eye looks for a nice contrast, and a neutral blush (usually Revlon Blushed powder blush). It's also beautiful with Super Lustrous lipgloss in Spiced Blush or Blushing Moment over it.Though I do prefer the creams by far, all of the finishes offer superior quality to any d/s brand I've tried. They are long lasting, moisturizing but never slimy, and provide excellent pigmentation. It's very easy to build up color to the desired level of opacity, and they layer beautifully with glosses or other lipsticks. As far as packaging, I appreciate Revlon's decision to add a see-through top to the tube, allowing one to evaluate the actual shade (hopefully, they will improve on the rack swatches soon!)

I can't wear this at all. I don't see any red whatsoever. All I get is a brownish carmel toffee color. Not good. I guess I'll give it to my sister, she likes these types of colors. My search continues...

I really love this color! It's a color I wouldn't normally pic by looking at it in the tube, but my friend had some, so I tried it out. I went right away and bought 3 of them (BOGO offer at Longs this week). It's a really pretty redish color with a hint of brown/orange. Normally I'm more of a purple or pinky-brown girl. I really love it, but after wearing it all this week, I've found that it's not that moisturizing. That isn't a major flaw though as that is what chapstick is for. :) I will continue to buy this color.
