Revlon - Black Cherry.

I'm pretty sure we all know about Revlon and their lovely make-up range. Well quite a few months back I picked up one of their lipsticks in 'Black Cherry' as a lot of people were comparing it to one of the MAC lipsticks in 'Dark Side' and even one of Tom Fords lipsticks. Now I must of been having one of those days when you feel a little more daring than most days. As I'm usually a nude/peach type of girl (talk about going out of my comfort zone). The only time I do wear a dark lipstick is on a big night out or a special occasion and saying that it's only a deep red.

Now if you're looking for a statement lipstick then this may be the one for you. The lipstick does cost £7.49 which isn't that pricey. For a lipstick that goes on smoothly and is quite moisturising anyway. The longevity of this lipstick isn't amazing, but it does look nice applied lightly as a lip stain with a bit of gloss applied over the top (if you don't want it to look to heavy). I like the fact that the lipstick has no odour to it and that the packing is very sleek. Especially the clear tops, making the specific shades easier to find.

Here is a swatch of the lipstick.

As you can see the shade is a deep plum/berry. It does look a little darker on my lips when its just applied as a lipstick, nothing else.

 Overall this lipstick is a gorgeous shade and I love the look of it on others, but it just isn't for me. It doesn't really suit my skin tone and kind of washes me out. I've worn it a few times and wish I didn't bother. I'm sure it will come in good use next Halloween or something though haha.

Have you tried Revlon lipsticks before?
Do deep shades put you off too sometimes?
