REVIEW: RIMMEL LASTING FINISH LIPSTICK


Lipsticks are my favourite makeup product to use and I love collecting them as much as I love to wear them. I always put on some lipstick before I leave the house if not I feel naked, I think it was a habit I picked up from when I was a cabin crew member, we always had to have lipstick on. I think it was a good habit to catch and I still wear lipstick all the time. The plus side is it has been scientifically proven that if you wear lipstick to work, then during a discussion or meeting you are bound to get more attention and be able to interact more than if you weren't wearing any lipstick. Think about it next time you are getting ready to go to work.

I was always comfortable wearing nudes and browns as I have a darker skin tone, but since lately I have started branching out into plums, reds and maroons. I will write about those colours in another post. Two of my staple lipsticks were the Rimmel Lasting finish Lipsticks in 264-Coffee  Shimmer and 066-Heather Shimmer. Rimmel claims that you will be able to get up to 8 hours of wear out of the lipstick with a 25% increase in colour impact. Unfortunately there isn't any beauty shop in Hong Kong that stocks Rimmel but you can have a look HERE and you can buy the products online at ASOS HERE





L to R - Heather Shimmer, Coffee Shimmer 





 COFFEE SHIMMER 



 Is a brown lipstick that has slight shimmer particles to it with a slight red undertone. There is a slight vanilla coffee fragrance to the lipstick but nothing too over powering. The packaging is simple but nice and doesn’t have a cheap look to it. The lipsticks have a smooth and creamy texture with a sheen finish that is easy to wear. The lipstick doesn’t dry the lips which is a good thing and you don’t need to use a moisturizing lip balm beforehand either. The claims about the lipstick lasting for 8 hours wasn’t really true but the lipstick did last about 3-4 hours. The lipsticks are quite pigmented and the intensity of the is buildable which is good because you can wear it during the day as well as in the night. Normally lipsticks that have a shimmer can't be worn during the day but this Rimmel lipstick can be worn.

 HEATHER SHIMMER 



Is a pink lipstick that has slight shimmer particles with a pink undertone. There is a raspberry fragrance to the lipstick but it isn't too over powering. The packaging is simple but nice and doesn’t have a cheap look to it. The lipsticks have a smooth and creamy texture with a sheen finish that is easy to wear. The lipstick doesn’t dry the lips at all and you don’t need to use a moisturizing lip balm beforehand either. The claims about the lipstick lasting for 8 hours wasn’t really true but the lipstick did last about 3-4 hours same as the Coffee Shimmer. The lipsticks are quite pigmented but I preferred to wear this lipstick during the day. It looked better during the day as my skin tone is darker. You are able to wear this during the day as the intensity of the colour is buildable.

Lipsticks from Rimmel are a good high-street brand that has good quality. These lipsticks were comfortable to wear and weren't very expensive either. The colours suited my skin tone very well and you have an option of choosing between 16 different shades. I would definitely recommend these lipsticks if you are on the look for a shimmer lipstick that isn't too bold or bright.

Have you tried  any Rimmel lipsticks? Comment and let me know if you have I am interested in knowing.
