Revlon Cherries in the Snow lipstick and nail enamel review (FOTD and NOTD!)

Hey lovelies!!!

HAPPY SUNDAY! I hope you are enjoying your day :-) I'm just sitting here blogging and watching Air Crash Investigation (I do this every Sunday, geek!)

I've been reading on quite a few blogs recently about Revlon's Cherries in the Snow range (such as Jennie from Sailboat - love her!) and it looked, well, amazing! So, me being the inquisitive type, had to go out and try it for myself!

Here's what I found...

Revlon Cherries in the Snow nail enamel

This is a lovely, creamy raspberry pink shade that just looks beautiful on the nails. I use my OPI Nail Envy (Original) base coat, 2 coats of Cherries in the Snow and then my Seche Vite Dry Fast top coat to complete the look. I have a feeling this shade will definitely be taking me into spring/summer!

You can buy this for £6.49 from Boots.

I've also added this image to my NOTD Archive, consisting of all my NOTD's since I started this blog :-D

Revlon Super Lustrous Cherries in the Snow lipstick

I don't know what it was exactly that drew me to this lipstick initially, but I guess I just felt like injecting a bit of colour to my face and this just seemed like a really stunning, but wearable, shade.

Here it is without flash...

Here it looks like it has a slight reddish tint, but it's definitely pinker IRL.

Swatches! Without flash...

Now these seem kind of purple, and the top one seems very red! OK so here it is on the actual lips lol.



My first thoughts were "OMG, how vibrant!" It's not often I wear shades like these and I felt VERY out of my comfort zone wearing such a shocking shade. The lipstick itself was very pigmented and you really do need a light hand applying it. It's certainly a shade I don't own already, it's very unique and brings some colour into an otherwise pretty 'drab' look and is actually very flattering. I like it :-)
