Rimmel Lipsticks - Favorites & Swatches:

I have been obsessed with Rimmel lipsticks lately. They are so creamy and pigmented, the lasting power is excellent and the colors are all gorgeous.

So far, I own 6 shades:



Vintage Pink (380) is in the Moisture Renew collection. Super moisturizing, pigmented and creamy.... This should be named Vintage Purple. It's definitely not pink, I do get the vintage vibe though, but absolutely purple-ish. Not too great for us pale skinned folks but it is a gorgeous color. I like to layer this with other colors so it looks better with my skin tone.

Pink Blush (006) is from the Lasting Finish collection - Really smooth and creamy, good pigmentation.. A baby pink with a shine to it, no shimmer but a sort of glossy finish. This is a great every day shade, one of those 'throw it in your purse and go' lipsticks.

Airy Fairy (070) - another Lasting Finish shade, this one has been talked about for years in the beauty community. It's hard to describe, definitely a nude but it has brown and pink undertones. A very unique shade, I own nothing else like it. It has that same glossy shine as Pink Blush, and there is a slight gold shimmer.


 The next three are from the Lasting Finish Matte by Kate Moss collection:

All of these are creamy, smooth and very pigmented.

 Shade 101 - My favorite every day lipstick as of late. A beautiful matte light pink. I LOVE wearing this with NYX's butter gloss in Merengue over top.

Shade 103 - This is like a deeper version of 101, a bit of a dusty rose shade.. Really pretty.

Shade 111 (Kiss Of Life) - A bright matte red. It's almost a mix between a cherry & brick red. Gorgeous!
