Having mostly stuck to liquid lipstick for my reds I have been reaching for this one much more often instead recently. While I do like a matte red finish, matte can sometimes be uncomfortable to wear and take off. This comes off pretty easily at the end of the day and feels comfortable on the lips. It's a true red (although you can get the odd pink tone in it). The staying power on these lipsticks is much more substantial than the Bourjois lipsticks I own, they only start to budge with food and drink. For the same price as Bourjois I'd probably recommend these ones more.

Im a huge fan of Revlon lustrous Lipsticks but this particular shade of red looked orange on me.Such a big let down as the bullet looked like a blue-based red which I aimed to have bought. I was glad to give it away to my grandma which really suited her.

This is THE Retro lipstick for me. My only wish is that it was a little more matte, its luxurious either way. Everything about it sings out retro, the packaging, colour and the smell. I reminds me of one of my mum's awesome Max Factor matte reds when I was a toddler. Even my boyfriend loves the smell. It's so unkissable and irresistible in one, he cant help adoring me when i wear it, seriously! The colour is bright on me, not cool or blue tone at all. I love to wear a pink/coral liner and fill-in the entire lip area, unbelievable. Perfect Vintage Red Lippy

I am generally drawn to red lipsticks with orange undertones, but Revlon Red is a deep blue red with just a tiny hint of orange that looks great on my NC20-25 skin. I think this is a red that would be flattering on many skin tones! Love it!

I absolutely LOVE this super bright, cool toned red. The texture is creamy and moisturising, with a slightly shiny finish. But unfortunately I can't wear it because of the disgusting old lipsticky smell and taste =( my friend commented that something smelled like "the toilet", unaware that it was my lipstick. Hopefully one day, Revlon will change the formula to something a bit more pleasant smelling and keep the fantastic shade.If anyone knows a similar shade in any other brand, please PM me!

A step up from Cherries in the Snow, more red less fushica but still bordering on that pinky/blue red such as Russian Red or Ruby Woo from MAC. Also love the fact that it has a matching nailpolish, makes you feel very 40's glamourous:)

This is a vivid blue-red with fuscia undertones. It looks very similar to MAC's Ruby Woo. I tend to wear this instead of Ruby Woo if my lips are a bit chapped or I'm in a hurry, as the creamy formula means it's less drying and a lot easier to put on straight from the tube (I have to apply Ruby Woo with a brush). I think it's a good quality lipstick for the price. The staying power is very good for a cream formula.

This doesn't work on my light olive skin - too blue based. I gave it to a fair skinned blonde who now looks like a 1940's pinup girl when she wears it. I will have to stick to orange or brown based reds.

I am surprised that this has not received better overall reviews! Revlon Red is a classic red shade (I would say cool-toned) that really "pops" against my pale skin and gives a very glam, retro look. The formulation is comfortable and fairly moisturising, not drying like so many other highly pigmented lipsticks seem to be. It wears well and lasts a long time on me with minimal touch-ups required. I would definitely reccommend this as a classic red shade at a good price, although it is for true red lovers and not for the faint of heart because the colour is intense (which I love).

I love red lipstick, and I know this is probably Revlon's best selling red, but it is too cool-toned for me. I see more blue/pink in this, than Certainly Red, which is the truest classic red I've found, of theirs. This works okay for me with certain colors (it can calm down a black or navy near my face, I'm warm toned NC30) or with white, but I could definitely NOT wear this with a warm toned color near my face. Will use up my tube, but I won't repurchase. The formula for Super Lustrous is great!
