This is a great lipstick! I very much agree with the previous reviewer who mentioned this looks like the shades worn on the show Harlots. That's exactly what I thought when I first applied it. I don't consider this a red, it's a dark pink/fuchsia to and on me. It's got a gorgeous stain like finish, I guess it's matte but it's not dry, thick and grotesque like so many matte formulas. It wears exceptionally well with little upkeep if any. It's beautiful and so, so much nicer than what you'd expect for 2 bucks. I hate the tube though, it's annoying how the cap always touches the lipstick and makes it look so messy.

I’ve been looking for a lipstick like the main women always wear on Harlots and this is the perfect bright pink that contrasts with skin to wake the rest of the face up. Doesn’t look too magenta either and stains really well.

Cherry Picking is a beautiful intense pinkish/rosy red with a matte finish.

It applies best if you put it on over a bit of balm, though that will compromise the wear slightly.

At least on NW15 brunette me, Cherry Picking isn't a true red; I wear it when I want a very vibrant rose pink.

Cherry Picking wears well and is very flattering. As another reviewer mentioned, the packaging is weak, but for a color like this, from a cruelty-free company, for next to nothing, I can overlook cheap packaging.

I'd definitely buy this again.

Cherry Picking is a bright pink-red satin finish lipstick. It feels nice on the lips, and not dry at all. The packaging is kind of crappy, as it is impossible to keep the lipstick from getting all over the inside of the clear cap, but since it is cheap in terms of price, I don't mind too much. I am very pale, and this is a flattering, fun, not-too-bright color that brightens up my face and lasts very well.

The name for this lipstick is perfect because this formula really lasts for hours! I love this berry-red shade because it is bright and wears quite nicely. It doesn't completely set like a liquid lipstick would, so you can kiss it off or wind up with a bit on your coffee cup. Small price to pay in my onion since it's such a great formula and color. I have green eyes and olive skin, and this shade is particularly flattering. I do think it would suit a wide range of coloring combinations though, so check it out if the shade appeals to you. With the price point, what do you have to lose?

Beautiful bright fuchsia pink lipstick. Very pigmented! Extremely long wearing, lasted 5 hours. Packaging sucks though.

Edit: Sadly, I've discovered that the MegaLast formula gives me deep, painful, huge lip cystic acne. It clogs my lip pores somehow or I'm allergic to an ingredient. This is rare, I'm sure, so I'm only docking one lippy. I still recommend you try the formula, but buy one shade and test it WELL for reactions. I bought nearly the whole collection before I made the connection.

Clearly I won't be rebuying. :(

Original Review:

Oh my! Oh my oh my! I own many (maybe even most) of the shades in the MegaLast line and I have never-ever seen one wear as long as Cherry Picking does! It made it though me drinking a smoothie with NO straw in a jar (and I really am messy) and lasted HOURS past that! Really amazing wear.

And the color? Magenta-red glamtastic. This definitely wears red on my fair yellow/olive skin, but with strong hot pink/magenta leanings. Very similar in shade to Blush My Lips by Essence (a smidge deeper and redder but it's very slight), but in a better formula (IMO).

The formula is typical ML - thick, creamy, opaque, semi-matte. A bit dry to get on
(especially around the edges) but wears like iron once you do. No creasing, settling, or bleeding. The packaging sucks of course - thems the breaks!

I love it! Possibly the most impressive shade in the whole ML line!
