My views on Rum Raisin:
If you are looking for a really unique and dark shade in your vanity specially suited for festive/party look, grab this shade. 😀
Shade: Rum Raisin is a blackened Red color lipstick. It is a deep red/maroon shade which clears hints of plum there. Totally a different shade from the usual plums or maroons or reddened browns too. I find it difficult to actually describe the color but yes, it is a flattering shade for all skin tones undoubtedly.
Texture: Matte finishes yet creamy enough gliding on smoothly. Highly pigmented shade and gives an opaque color in a single swipe. I did not find it drying but I prefer using a clear lip balm below it. 
Staying Power: The lipstick easily stays on for 6-7 hours on me with a full meal in between. It leaves a strong tint behind after a full meal so I don’t find a need of a touch-up then.
Pros:
Shade is quite unique and festive.
Highly pigmented
Suits all skin tones
Smooth and creamy texture
Stays on for 6 hours easily
Survives full meals too leaving a strong stain behind.
Non-drying
Sturdy packaging.
Affordable and easily available.
Cons:
Use a lip balm underneath if you suffer from dry lips.
I seriously could not find any other con with this shade. I liked it that much on me 
  
Ratings: 4.75/5
Final Verdict: Highly recommended color from the velvet matte range. Grab this 1 soon :D.
