Lipstick - Cherries in The Snow

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick - 440 Cherries In the Snow

Few product scream feminine better than lipstick.  There are  many physio-sexual  discussion on what lipstick represents but let’s face it, lips just look better with color.  Second only to the eyes, lips draw you in.  Bold lips represent confidence.  However, that has not always been the case. There have been periods in human history when red lips were outlawed.  It was believed not that long ago, that creating a plump, sexualized mouth would earn you a fast-track ticket to hell. 

"Red lips overtly expresses feminine power.  Think Jean Harlow’s pointed red pout in the 1930s, Veronica Lake’s in the 1940s and Marilyn Monroe’s in the 50’s.  Women who are remembered.   By dressing your lips in red, it draws people’s attention to you, especially to your mouth, and subsequently, the words that come out of it."  The Power of Red Lips - Psychologies.

I was out just a few weeks ago and noticed how beautiful a woman’s lips sitting next to me appeared.  Without hesitation I asked “Your lips are beautiful - What lipstick is that?”  “Cherries in the Snow” was the answer. 

OMG - I remember that shade from over 30 years ago - My photo on the right. It is a Revlon's color. Loved the color then and still do today. 

There are few descriptors that are more spot on than "Cherries in the Snow"

Escape with red lips.
