Love the color. Hate the formula. It is nothing like my other Tom Ford lipsticks. This one is dry and makes my lips look thing and wrinkled. I sometimes I use this over lip balm. Even that doesn't make me love it. So sad.

I really tried to like these lipsticks but I couldn't manage it. I own Cherry Lush, Vanilla Suede and Vampire Kisses. The formula is very nice and smooth, but I found the colours to be just mediocre and the finish to be unpleasant. Very rarely do lipsticks bleed or transfer on me but this stuff was just everywhere!

I think the packaging is ugly, bulky and cheap - I much prefer the sleek Bobbi Brown or the rather luxurious feeling Estee Lauder Sculpting lipsticks.

Also, I seem to be somewhat allergic to the formula - it starts off plumping my lips nicely but they just carry on swelling and swelling until I look cartoonish! I've never ever been allergic to anything in my life, and have mountains of lipsticks from Dior to L'Oreal to MUA and have not reacted like that to any of the rest. Weird!

I really love Cherry Lush. It is one of those shades that has a bit of frosty glitter in it, but so sophisticated - it will never appear frosty on the lips. More than that - whoever I see wearing Cherry Lush looks beyond beautiful!

It is that rich shade of a blue toned cherry red that makes your teeth appear whiter and your overall complexion as well. I absolutely love it for those evening type of events where you need to look your best and be photographed a lot - this lipstick won't back you down.

If you want a bold lipstick from Tom Ford collection - aside from very dark colors - Cherry Lush is the one to splurge on!

I must agree with the previous review; this lipstick is just meh and meh is not good enough if it costs AUD68! Luckily, it was given to me for Christmas. The colour is a beautiful pinky/red and it stays on my lips for four hours when it is layered on. But if I use a lip brush to put on a light layer, it dries my lips out and my lips starts to crack and peel. For such a luxurious and expensive brand, I just expect more and better. Will definitely not repurchase.

Totally overrated!!!!!!!!!

I finally splurged and purchased this after keeping it on the back burner of my cosmetics wish list for the past two years. I had to order via Nordstrom's website as they don't stock it in store at my nearest location, and after applying it once, it is going right back! First, the color is pretty and flattering, but not the knock your socks off shade of red I was expecting. And even worse, once faded, it looks like a muted bright pink. Second, the finish is very mediocre. One can find the same or similar quality from L'Oreal, Maybelline or any drugstore brand for that matter. Third and finally, the packaging was rather ugly and masculine in my opinion, and didn't look as luxurious in reality as it did in the pictures online. I'm disappointed and outraged that this is being sold for 50.00USD. WTF? Ladies, don't buy into the hype. I would recommend Revlon Cherries in the Snow which is of better quality overall if you can believe it. If you're set on higher end, then I would also recommend Clarins, Joli Rouge lipstick in shade 716 (Clarins Red) which is similar in texture and color to TF Cherry Lush but much, much better and for nearly half the price!! Glad I tried TF Cherry Lush, but even more glad I returned it.

Please believe me when I say this is PERFECT. Lasting 6+ HOURS without touchups, amazing finish and beautiful colours, what more could you want.
Mr.Ford you are a god!

This is a pretty but expensive lipstick. When you initially put it on, it brightens your face. When it fades, it turns bright pink on me. Not my favorite look. I do like the application and the vanilla flavor.

I hate to rain on the parade here, but this lipstick feels a bit like the emperor's new clothes to me (look it up if you don't get the reference). I wonder if people aren't hyping this up so much because they paid so much that they want to love it. I prefer the packaging from Guerlain, the formulation from YSL and the colours from Armani. And at this price, I'm glad I wasn't a fan. Don't get me wrong - it's not a terrible product, just there are so many better options out there at this price point, I won't be buying another Tom Ford lipstick. In fact, I'd return this one if I could as I'm so underwhelmed (plus it looked way better on me in the store lighting than at home), but sadly we can't make cosmetics returns in the UK so I'm stick with it!

A beautiful indulgence! Gorgeous true red color, neither orangey or blue tint on my lips, just a pure bright red. Red being one of the most difficult colors to match to your skin tone, this is one I will always keep in stick.
Price is stratospheric, even though packaging is beautiful the price is set so high by company because they can. Either you pay the crazy price and love the lipstick or you look for a cheaper version.

Highly pigmented one good firm swipe can give good coverage, so precise in application you don't need a lip liner. Sort if matte finish, not overly moisturizing but not drying either. Lips felt very comfortable. Staying power: I put on lip slip conditioner before hand,so not that long lasting on me. Don't use foundation but applying foundation before hand might increase staying power.
I love this color!

My fav Tom Ford lipstick. Amazing colour, I get so many compliments. For reference I am NC30 of Indian origin. TF makes the BEST lipsticks next to Suqqu. Despite having cartloads of Channels, Diors etc. once I tried TF I cannot look at any other brand again.
