My understanding of the lacquering process is that it's a hundred thin coats of a sheerly pigmented fluid that adds up to a richly pigmented color. This is a sheer red. It's a cool-toned orange red that can be built up fairly well, although on its own it'll never be a "ka-pow!" red. Average wear for a Revlon, (doesn't wear off in minutes, but isn't "long wearing," either) with no noticeable taste or smell. My husband loves this color on me, for some reason.

I think the ad picture was Red Lacquer over Cherry Blossom, which is a very vibrant hot pink. Not strictly dishonest, but not the impressionof Red Lacquer I would have had without blogger pictures. Since I knew ahead, I really like it.

Don't be fooled by the promo image with Emma Stone that accompanies the Shanghai Collection -- Red Lacquer is very similar to Revlon's Cha Cha Cherry in that it's a really nice sheer, daytime red but not a rich, opaque red.

I do love the color, but I subtracted 1 lipstick from my overall rating because this was represented as a full-coverage color and while I love it, I'm sure plenty of people will feel tricked by the advertising.

The lipstick goes on smooth and the wear is okay -- it's definitely not meant to be a long-lasting lip color; it doesn't bleed or feather but will have to be re-applied after eating or drinking.

If you are looking for a beautiful, mid-60s semi-sheer daytime red, this is probably the best I've found so far. But if you're looking for a nice, rich, creamy opaque red, keep searching.
