This lipstick is WAY darker on me IRL than in these pics. It looks like hot fuchsia/red verses a hot pink. Ick - not flattering at all. Additionally, it does not apply evenly, and I find I have to go across the center of my lips four or five times to get it as opaque as the outside of my lips. And it wears off and looks like liner very quickly. Yuck.

I love this lipstick. Everything about it. I cannot stand having dry-feeling lips, and while I love satin textured lipsticks they often make my lips uncomfortable. This does not dry out my lips, (which I have admittedly caused to be addicted to lip balms with constant use), though I don't know that I would say it leaves them in better or same condition. They're certainly not damaged in any way by the wear of this (unlike some of the Nars Velvet Matte Pencils!).
The color is bright and summery- without being offensively so. I am completely comfortable wearing this lipstick to the office on casual Fridays, where I would feel very out of place wearing Nars Schiap, as an example.
The scent is heavy, but I am not overly sensitive to scent and can look past it. Others may have a sensitivity to it, and I would say it's a very throw-back perfume-y, synthetic type scent. It does wear off quite quickly after application.
The wear time is phenomenal. I can wear this for 6 hours without touch up (even with a coffee and a bowl of oatmeal on the list of things to do!), and then it wears off evenly to a nice pink stain. Even though this color is bright, I do not need a lipliner to contain it. It does not feather or bleed.
All in all, the quality of this lipstick outshines many of the high end lipsticks in my stash. I have many lipsticks I love, but rare is the lipstick that I can say I wear often. Persian Melon is DEFINITELY one that I consistently go to, and I am never disappointed.

Love this retro shade. Total classic and beautiful.

This is a neutral hot pink, which you can gradually build so it doesn't look like you have pink frosting all over your lips. It has similar qualities as other Revlon lipsticks - creamy, opaque, and wears a good 4-6 hours. However, I dislike the smell/taste of the MD line and that it's only available at CVS around me (meaning I have to spend $10 on smelly lipstick). I put up with this because it's hard to find a pink that isn't blue-based that looks decent against my skin tone (NC 25-30 with strong yellow undertones); this looks great when I'm pale and tan.

Its the most amazing hot pink neon color lipstick I have ever owned, it makes me look beautiful. A lipstick can really change my personality from demure to vixen. I love this color, even though it semi stains my lips, its not that long wearing, so I have to apply it often. For $6.99 Im not complaining, this lipstick competes with MAC!

I picked up this color when I heard it was the color worn by the original Pam Am stewardesses. I was sad to learn that although it is the right name, Persian Melon, the actual color they wore now goes by the name Blase Apricot (#702) in the moondrops line. Like all moondrops this has a strong soapy/chemically floral scent. This comes out to be a BRIGHT hot pink color on my light complexion and naturally pigmented lips. I have not had the bravery to wear it full force in public yet. I do love to use it as a lip stain however. If I have time in the morning I slather it on my lips full force. Once it has sat on my lips for an hour or two, I use a little vaseline and tissue it off. What is left is a BEAUTIFUL and very natural looking berry stain on my lips that lasts all day, even with repeated balm or gloss application. I own multiple moondrops lipsticks and this is the way I wear them all. I recommend it highly because it is far more natural looking than using a "lip stain" product.

I love this color! It is VERY bright, so unless you want it to look extreme, you need to apply it lightly. Its a very flattering hot pink shade. The formula is nondrying, and lasts for 4-5 hours, even through several cups of coffee. It did not settle into any lines on my lips, and it did not feather (I hate wearing lipliner, so this is a big plus for me!). This color is a lot of fun to wear!

If you Google image this product, you will find some pretty garish pictures. However, I bought this lipstick anyway because I loved Kate Cameron's makeup in Pan Am, and we have similar coloring. This was apparently the regulation Pan Am lipstick back in the day, and it is what Kate wears on the show. I first swiped a bit of lipstick on with my finger-- so far, so good-- brightening, but not garish. I got brave and added a little more straight from the tube. It looked great! Just sheer enough, and still not clown-like at all. I applied some Burt's Bees on top, and I got Kate's look exactly; pink, delicate, feminine, and retro. I am absolutely shocked to find that this is HG-material lipstick.I think that the secret is not to pile it on, as some of the bloggers posted on Google images seem to have done. That said, I depise products that are so pigmented with offensive/garish colors, e.g., some of the Nars blushes, that they have to be applied with the utmost care. I have no time for the utmost care; I would rather just buy a different product that I can swipe on. This is not one of those apply-super-carefully products. Just apply straight from the tube, blot, maybe add a little lip balm, and you are ready for take off!

I bought this lipstick on sale for $3 (CDN). I bought it with my Hallowe'en costume in mind. I was a Hot Pink Bunny. So original right? Well, this lipstick matched my costume perfectly, as if it was made for it! Don't get me wrong though, I still see myself wearing this for other occasions. It's very pretty, like a hot pink watermelon. Creamy formula, but still wear a balm underneath! I personally don't mind the scent - but if strong fragrances bother you, then you might not fancy this one.

This is such a beautiful hot pink. The formula is great, it lasts for a long time and is relatively moisturizing. The scent is overwhelming obnoxiously fragrant old lady-ish, but I don't mind it at all. It actually makes me happy because that's how I've always remembered lipstick smelling as a child. I love wearing this color with a simple winged black liner and light peach blush on a sunny day. I agree with the previous reviewer, it's an addicting shade. I'm tempted to buy other Moon Drops, the colors are so unique and fun.
