This was the last item I got during my little drugstore binge last week, Revlon’s ‘Black Cherry’ lipstick. Another beauty blogger had mentioned it and that Claire Marshall had said it was a favorite of hers. And I love Claire, so of course I had to go get it.
The color looks super intimidating in the tube, it’s probably the darkest looking lipstick I own. But after swatching it, I knew it was going to be a versatile lipstick and a new love. It’s a creme finish and is buildable. You can wear it super sheer over lip balm for a more natural wash of color, apply once for a gorgeous berry color, or do two layers for a more vampy lip. Definitely make sure your lips are exfoliated because it will cling to any dry patches. I didn’t think of this initially as it’s a creme finish, but after application I wish I had.
I kept it to one application for today, it really is a beautiful lipstick and I’m glad I got it now before the pinks, corals, and nudes of spring take over.
Have you tried Black Cherry yet?
