Rimmel London Lipsticks

If you cant already tell I have recently bought an abundance of Rimmel London products, I have never considered Rimmel to be a fantastic drugstore brand, I am more loyal to Revlon, Bourjois and Maybelline. However, Rimmel products just seem to be more and more appealing to me, it does help that I have managed to grab a tonne of their stuff on sale (with more items on their way :| ). I have 3 Rimmel London lipsticks to review for you today, all are different types of their lipsticks.

Rimmel London Colour Show Off Lipstick

I have had this lipstick for a while but have never bothered to review it. I just have to say how I love the gold and pink metallic casing of this lipstick, while not classic, it has a nice girly feel to it.This product is no longer in store and I purchased this a few months ago on clearance, and sadly cannot recall the price at the time. The lipstick I have is shade 030 Tell No One, bit of an ominous name there but a lovely shade nonetheless. This is a peach red colour, it comes up fairly bright on the lips, definitely a statement lipstick. The formula is nice and creamy, but a bit drying on the lips and will show up patchy so make sure you scrub and exfoliate your lips first and use a lot of lip balm. The wear time is good, 2-3 hours without eating, it tends to stain my lips a little so I tend to leave reapplying for 4 or so hours and am left with a softer tint to my lips after 2 or so hours.

Rimmel London Lasting Finish Lipstick

This is a new product for me that I managed to pick up for only $2 AU on clearance, the tip of the lipstick was slightly damaged when I opened it up but that isn't very important for a $2 lipstick, this retails for $9.95 here in Australia. The shade I have is 210 Coral in Gold, which describes the colour perfectly. This is a coral coloured lipstick with a golden sheen to it. This is a nice light peach shade that is the perfect summer lip colour. The formula is quite nice for this, it does show up dry patches but I do find it moisturising on my lips. I find this lasts on my lips for around 3 hours, not so great when it comes to eating or drinking so make sure you reapply after that. 

Rimmel London Lasting Finish Matte by Kate Lipstick

Another product I picked up in the same clearance as the lipstick above, I either paid $2 or $5 AU for this lipstick, it retails for $12.95 AU however. I picked up shade 103 which does not have a corresponding name, which is a bit of a shame but I think none of the Kate Moss Rimmel Lipsticks have names. The colour of this lipstick is a matte dusty pink and I think this looks fantastic, possibly more of an autumn winter colour, or a good colour for when you want statement eyes not lips. Being a matte formula this does tug on your lips, and you HAVE to make sure you exfoliate first and hydrate your lips. 

Have you tried any of these lipsticks?

  1. I have 5 different Kate lipsticks. And a few of them have names.
    Shade 20 - effortless glam
    Shade 10 - red n chic
    Shade 5 x2 not sure of this name
    Shade 26 nor this one.

    Shade 5 has a name, I just have no idea what it is lol. I like these lipsticks. I don't own any others, but I'm being sent a bunch of Rimmel products to try out/review so maybe some lipsticks will be in there lol. Loving the pink/gold packaging!
