Oh goodness, I bought this thinking it was red...I wish I would have read the reviews before purchasing! It's a beautiful fuschia color, but honestly what can you wear with fuschia? I did get it on sale for 3.99 (which is rare) so I don't feel terrible about it. I believe it's usually 7.99. I mixed it with another awful color by almay(a sheer red with an overdose of orange, the ones that are supposed to match every skin tone) and it looks much more presentable now.I just hate mixing, I'd much rather just slap it on. Fire and ice, certainly red, and love that red are MUCH better if you hate the pink undertone of some other lipsticks.
Other than that, the staying power is wonderful, the texture is lovely, and overall it's a fantastic lipstick...

I have very light skin, blue eyes and dark brown hair. This color makes me look like Bozo the clown. I have been known to wear it out at night. Like, to the bar. I mean, the DARK bar. Where some drama is needed. But in normal lighting there is no way in Gods green earth I would be seen with this lipstick.
It gets a 2 because I have seen other people, people who are not me, wear this and it looks fantastic.

I definitely cannot wear this full-on. It's a very vivid fuschia. So pretty, but too intense for me. I dilute it with some balm to make it wearable. They probably intended it for very fair complexions.

My sister wore this lipstick in the 80's when she was in high school and college. She applied it with a brush to create a stain effect. One day, when I was rummaging through her makeup bag, I saw that bright red-pink lipstick and I was mesmerized. It was rich, powerful color that screamed vintage. Revlon introduced this color in the 1950's and it became one of their all-time best sellers. Anyway, a while back, I was in Ulta with my best friend and I spotted that famous color. I almost got it but I thought I had too many red-based lipsticks. Nevertheless, a few weeks later, I looked at it again while shopping at my local grocery store and decided that I had to have it. The color is amazing and it is cheap. What is there to lose? When I put it on with my MAC lip pencil in Garnet, my whole face lit up! I am a PPP with natural auburn hair and I wear 40's and 50's vintage daily so it pairs well with my look. Some reviewers have stated that this color is too bright for them but it really works for me. I think the trick is you have to have a neutral or natural eye with mascara and a strong lip or you can do what my sister did and apply it with a brush for a more subtle look/stain. I hope Revlon never gets rid of this! Classic.

I'm sure it's just my extremely light skin, but this lipstick is absolutely HIDEOUS on me. My husband and I both had a good laugh when I put it on, as it makes me look like a hooker. I had been looking for a glamourous, 1940's film star red lipstick, but Cherries in the Snow has lots of bluish-pink-fuschia tones in it and looks hot pink on me. Very clown-ish. Needless to say I'm still looking for the perfect red.

When I think of this shade I think CLOWN. But this is not necessarily a bad thing... Like other romantics, I was swayed into buying this shade by the name, and honestly, that is about 50% of the thrill. If it had been called 'revlon red', I would probably never have bothered. So anyway, this shade isn't exactly an all-rounder suitable for everyday work wear. But on those days when you are feeling a bit of a lunatic (in a good way) and bourgeois conformity (I said conformity, not materialism :) has you feeling like you want to puke, this shade can't be beat. What is sexier than a little clown-like makeup everyday? Don't forget to smear it!

This is a great color! Long lip power. Great for a classic look and only $5.88 at Walmart. Matching nail polish available.

I have to admit: I bought this back in high school, hated it, and threw it out for being way too obnoxious and overpoweringly bright fuschia. Recently i bought the Cherries in the Glow gloss, which I love so much I had to give this lippie another try. I put on the gloss, and then apply the lipstick *lightly* over it and blend. It makes the most luscious, glowy, cherry-pink color ever! Applied sheerly, it's much more cherry than red. The gloss also gives it some slip and moisturizing ability...I agree with some of the other reviewers that Revlon lipsticks are generally too dry.

Well, I must say that this lipstick is not for everyone! I am a PPP, and it showed up like a neon sign on my light skin. I was led to believe that it was a raspberry/red lippy that would compliment fair skinned ladies, yet it just turned a bright magenta. I'm sure that this lipstick would work well for a medium to dark skin tone, but PPP's beware!

This was the first lipstick I ever used when I started using makeup in my late teen's.My lips still look great in this color although it is not my HG lipstick like it was back then.I rate this as a 5 its a classic Red and makes a great Red for girls in their teens.Now Revlon makes cherries in the Glow to match it.Great Combo!Great for brunettes and is Great with blackest black eyeliner.

I like the Super Lustrous since the scent is gone, but this particular shade should be used with caution. I am a PPP with light brown hair, and this red-pink turned bright, bright magenta on me. Plus, you absolutely have to blot, or this will end up staining or bleeding leaving you with "fruit punch mouth." I'd only recommend this for daring women with a heck of a lot more color to their skin. PPPs beware.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination Hair: Blond Eyes: Green
This was the first red lipstick I ever purchased! It is a nice cherry red color with good staying power, although it does feel a bit dry. I have since moved on to other red lipsticks (I am a 1940s makeup junkie) but occasionally still wear this one. As a side note, although this color was first released in the 1950s, it was not Marilyn Monroe's own shade! She actually wore a secret mix of 2-3 colors. However, you will feel very much like Marilyn or another 1940s-50s Hollywood starlet!

This color was made for the fair-skinned. a rich, extroverted pink-red in the tube, once I smoothed it on my lips (that nasty classic Revlon lipstick smell is gone--yeay!) it really accented my pale complexion beautifully and with drama. Looks great paired with my BeneFit BeneTint and some silvery taupe eyeshadow and black mascara.
Age: 44-55 Skin: Sensitive, Fair, Neutral Hair: Brown, Curly, Fine Eyes: Green
What a great lipstick. The color is just the greatest upper. It really is cherry color softened. The staying power and creaminess are excellent too. No wonder this has been in Revlon's line up forever.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
Love it... I have very pale skin and dark hair and I like to cultivate the snow-crow-blood/Snow White look. The package and scent are old-school and feel very 1940s in a good way.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Combination Hair: Red Eyes: Hazel
This color makes as much sense as that last review. (This is not the J. Peterman catalog!)
It is definitely NOT for everyone, especially not me. It looks like something the old ladies in Florida smear on their lips. And it's even worse when it wears off and leaves the ugliest stain I've ever seen. It isn't even red, but a super-BRIGHT dark pink that I can't even imagine anyone I know wearing or looking good in. Bleah!!

I bought this because in a back issue of Allure mag it was voted
Reader's Choice, Fav, etc. The color goes well with my skin tone
(a very vivid fuschia-red-cherry), but it is EXTREMELY bright. And I am the QUEEN of fuschia and vivid reds saying this! It needs toned down slightly or some shimmer, at least for my coloring.
The formula is drying also, and too much fragrance. With some improvement, I would give it more lippies.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
Great bright red color. Most Revlon lipsticks have a funny smell/taste and this does as well but I am sick of the sweet ones anyway. The staying power is quite well but causes that ring around the lip look if not reapplied every couple of hours. I'd say it's a good occasion lippie, not too glittery or sparkly, but a sophisticated red lippie.

The superlustrous lipsticks are more lipSTAINS than a lipSTICKS. I had to use baby wash to get it off. The color was also way too bright and I actually have trouble picturing a skintone that it would go with. I will be returning my tube to RiteAid and not repurchasing.
