Target had a sale on Rimmel recently so I decided to try out some of the Rimmel lipsticks because they’ve been so raved about on Youtube. I’ve been doing a good clean out of my makeup and have thrown out almost all of my lipsticks because they tend to go off around the one-two year mark. So I had some staple colours to replace eg a nude. I also wanted to try an orange lip colour, and was pretty excited to see Rimmel had one.
The lipsticks I chose to pick up were the Kate Moss
Matte Finish Lipstick in 113 and the Lasting Finish Lipstick in 210
Coral In Gold.
(Left is 113, Right is 210 Coral In Gold)
I really enjoy the sleek packaging, and both snap shut with a very nice ‘click’.
I’ll admit, I’m a
little disappointed with the nude lipstick (113). It’s a really nice
peachy pink, and it’s a tad bit pale for my skintone, but the real issue
is the formula. It just looks bad on my lips. It makes my lips
look dry and flakey no matter how thoroughly I prep my lips beforehand.
And if I didn’t, it looks just gross.
The only way I can get this to
work is if I wear it under gloss, but even then, I still need to work to
get this to look non-flakey on my lips. I think I will try a
moisturising formula for a nude next time. I’m not sure if I’ll try the
other colours in this line either, because while dark colours don’t
accentuate the lines on your lips as well, the formula is just a little
too drying for me.
Coral In Gold is another story. I really
really like this lipstick. It’s such a lovely colour, and very
comfortable on the lips too. It’s not too drying despite the long-wear
formula. It has a frosty finish, but I wear it more as a stain, so the
shimmery nature of it isn’t an issue. Ultimately I’m glad I got this,
and have been wearing it lots with a blushy cheek look.
thoughts: I think I’m going to give the moisture lipstick line of
Rimmel’s a go, although if you’re looking for a pretty coral-orange
colour you should try Coral In Gold!
