Who doesn’t love a bright lip! I sure do, and especially with the upcoming spring and summer, my craving for something vibrant has become extreme. There is nothing that boosts my self-esteem more than a bold lippie and these two by Rimmel are ideal. Minimal eye makeup, pretty pinkish blush and stunning lips are my usual partners in crime and if you’re like me and your bright lipstick is your forte – read on!
The Rimmel Kate Moss lipsticks are favorites of mine because they’ve got it all – gorgeous color selection and brilliant formula. Oh the formula – you wouldn’t normally expect that from drugstore lipsticks but these are simply rocking it! Creamy, smooth and hydrating lippies that doesn’t dry out the lips and feel surprisingly comfortable on – amazing! The color pay off of the lipsticks is absolutely incredible, a little too much even. With these two shades in particular, you need to be extra careful as they are very pigmented and you may end up looking like a clown. My little tip is to lightly dab the product onto your lips until you get the desired result – this is tried and tested and works wonders for me. Of course, if you prefer you can always use a lipstick brush but I don’t recommend swiping them directly on. Since the lipsticks are rather pigmented, they do stain the lips, which I don’t mind. Even without the stain though, the Rimmel Lasting Finish lipsticks are pretty long lasting and I need to reapply around the 4th hour mark. They give stunning semi-matte finish, which I absolutely adore. My only bugbear with the formula of these babies is the smell – I’m not fond of the herbal-y scent and taste but oh well.
Rimmel Lasting Finish in #20 is this gorgeous bright fuchsia pink shade that may look a bit full on at first, but if you play around with it and blend it well - looks stunning. The blue undertones of the lippie compliment my skin beautifully and the shade will definitely keep me company during the warmer months – it’s romantic, it’s fun and screams happines.
Old Hollywood glamour anyone? Yes, that’s what #22 is for me – a classic red with a pop! It has blue undertones and some pink running through it and it’s bold. For some it might be a bit too daring but I love everything about it! It is bright and it does stand out. I feel like it finishes off my look beautifully and never fails to make me feel classy and glamorous.
The Rimmel Lasting Finish Kate Moss lipsticks stroke again and made me fall in love with the range even more. The lippies have brilliant formula, the colors are breathtaking and they are cheap and cheerful – what else could I possibly ask for? These two shades here are stunning and will definitely make a statement, just be careful how you apply them and you will be all pretty and ready to leave the house full of confidence! :)
