Reversal Film colors

Hello!
Today I've had really weird lightning outside, and tried Reversal Film for the first time (for portraits), I was shocked, colors were amazing.
But I've been shooting in RAW and when i open my pictures in Photoshop it's set to default colors.
Any way to avoid that?
Or what are exact parameters in Photoshop to make it look just like Reversal Film on K-5?

CS or Lightroom? I believe that Lightroom has a preset similar to reversal film. But I could be wrong, only a LR user for a couple weeks.

You can develop the RAW file in camera. That will give you the exact colors you seen on the preview.

doesn't your raw editor allow you to open the file with the default camera settings. I think Siklypix supplied as pentas photo lab 4 does, and PSP X4 does as well. those are what I use, for the rare times I shoot raw

LR3 allows you to import the file unaltered but you have to tell it that is what you want (i shoot using the b/w ir mode a lot but like to be able to go colour or fine tune a shot as well. I've used the reversal film mode but I find the DXO film pack does a better job and emulates specific films (and filters) very well

Could you please explain how to do this?

I'll look when i'm at home since i don't have LR on my work computer. I can tell you it's in the import dialogue box on the right side in a pull down menu
