L-R: Eastend Snob, Obsession
Confession time! Lipsticks are no longer my one true love and they have been replaced by lip liners. There, I said it. But there is just something that they do to my confidence that no lipstick could ever do and over the past few months I’ve accumulated quite a few new shades with all sorts of formulas. The Essence ones (here) are fab, Mac Soar (here) is blommin’ marvelous but the ones that I am having a love affair as of late have been these Rimmel Exaggerate Lip Liners in Eastend Snob (here) and Obsession (here). And oh boy, they are nice! Allow me to explain…

These little gems are not only wallet-friendly but they definitely measure up to my high-end MAC and MUFE bad boys. Formula wise, they do tick all the boxes. Soft and creamy formula that just glides on? Check. Amazing pigmentation that goes opaque in just one swipe. Check. No drying out the lips and leaving them feel comfortable? Double check. With The Rimmel Exaggerate lip liners you don’t have to worry much about them settling into fine lines or imperfections, although I’d still advise you to give your lips a quick scrub before you swipe these on. Oh and when you do – be prepared for at least five hours of picture perfect and even wash of color. These babies know how to stay on and not budge! The twist-up applicator actually floats my boat as well, as I hate everything that I need to sharpen – love.

The Rimmel Exaggerate lip liners come in various stunning shades but the ones that I picked up are Eastend Snob and Obsession. If you are after a more affordable Kylie Jenner lip then you are in for a treat with Eastend Snob. Even though it’s not an exact dupe of her signature brownish pout, this beauty still has that KJ vibe with its gorgeous soft mauve pink shade and fully matte finish. It makes the lips look 10x fuller and plumper and it’s my not-so-secret confidence booster partner in crime. You can slightly overdraw you lips if that’s something you favor or you could just follow their natural line but either way – the results are fab and your lips will look bigger and better! It’s my new favorite nude, that’s for sure! Obsession on the other hand is a lovely deep brick red shade, which looks especially beautiful paired with a vampy red (Rimmel Kate 107 (here), I am looking at you!). I am a bit over the darker shades and I’m ready to embrace the spring / summer corals and pinks but I’m sure that when autumn roll around this baby will be twisted up and swiped on daily. I am head over heels in love with its matte finish and its complexion-warming benefits and even though I expected Obsession to be more purple we actually formed a good friendship! So I guess now it’s the time I urge you to go and pick up a few shades of these godsend lip miracles, right? Well, you really need to – they simply rock!

Have you tried the Rimmel Exaggerate Lip Liners before? Which shade is your favorite?

Lots of love,

    1. They are absolutely brilliant aren't they! I have been wearing Eastend Snob non-stop recently and it's pure love! xx

  2. Eastend Snob is my fave liner ever! Completely agree with everything you've said!
    It also looks great with a slip of vaseline too because the colour is amazing matte and moisturised!

  13. I bought Eastend Snob yesterday and found that it was really quite sticky on my lips. Wonder if it's just me? I've only worn it once so I will definitely try it again, its a gorgeous shade! xx


  14. These look so gorgeous! I need to jump on the lip liner bandwagon! xo

  15. I've purchased Eastend Snob time and time again as it's such a fab colour. I like to team this up with Gosh Darling lipstick or NYX butter gloss in Creme brûlée

  16. They sound like a great budget liner! Are the essence ones as good or no? Great post!


  17. These look amazing! I've actually never even heard of them so I need to look them up. :)

  19. I really want to try them
    they look good to me


  20. Eastend Snob looks like a shade I could use atm, since I don't have any pinky lip liners and it looks pretty for Spring. Great post.


  21. Eastend Snob is really one I want to try! Might have to pick it up at the weekend... :)

  22. I have Eastend Snob and for some reason the product keeps breaking when off when I apply. I have to agree that it is amazing product and comparable to some higher end lip pencils. Wish they would make this in lipstick form to though.
    I love your photographer, it's beautiful. Sam xxx

  23. Eastend snob is my fave, I've been using this so much lately! I did have the other shade too but lost it on a night out - booooo. Will definitely be buying both again xx


  24. They look gorgeous! I have one in red (forgot the name) but I hate the twist-up applicator cause it always breaks when I am using it ='(


  25. I have the Eastend Snob and I love it. It's a perfect my lips but better shade and is excellent at over lining without it being too obvious.


  26. I love the Exaggerate Lip Liners. My fave at the moment is 038 Allure :) Wendy xx
