I have always been a fan or rimmel products as you get products of a good quality at an affordable price. As a student I have always gone for their products as they have been at a low price I can afford, and of pretty good quality when compared to higher end brands.
For years now I have been using the rimmel lasting finish lipsticks (Would reccommed to anyone) and been extremely impressed with the consistency, appearance, packaging, colour range and staying power. Due to my high expectations and trust in Rimmels cosmetics, I quite happily picked 2 of these up in my local boots store for £4.99. In case you were wondering, I decided to go for shade 500 Diva Red and 006 champagne, as I was looking for a lip colour more sublte for school and work, and then a fun colour for going out and nights with the girls.
I liked how smoothly it applied to my lips and was pleasantly surprised by the pigmentation of both lipsticks as I was not expecting the colour to pop so much, especially with the light pink shade, 006 champagne. The only thing was though, that it didnt seem to last more than an hour two and this really inconvenienced me as applying and reapplying at work was awkward for me.
All in all I was very impressed with this product, as for a fiver you cant really go wrong. It is a real pity that rimmel have now stopped stocking it but it is available on line and I have continued purchasing it.
Over the recent festive period I was very lucky to have been bought some make up from my grandmother. I generally wear minimal make up and I know that my nan would prefer if I wore more - I don't think she means it in an insulting way :)
One of the items of makeup that my nan bought me was Rimmel London lipstick rouge Diva Red number 500. As the name suggests Diva Red is not for a shrinking violet. It is a strong deep red colour. No matter how little you put on the colour comes out really strongly and makes a big impact.
Before owning this lipstick I only owned one and I purchased that for my wedding day, however I have more and more been looking at lipsticks.
Diva Red number 500 is definitely not going to come a colour that I wear on my lips everyday but I do like how it looks on. i feel transformed with this lipstick on and wore it out New Year's Eve. I found it surprising how just some colour on your lips can make such a change to your overall look.
I found that this Rimmel lipstick felt lovely and moisturising on my lips. The colour lasted for a decent amount of time and so I will definitely be checking out what other colours are available in this range.
The only negative I would say us that the lipstick doesn't look very expensive. It has a purple semi see through lid that just makes it look a little cheap.
this is another product that recently got accumulated into my make up collection. I brought this from my local boots for £3 as it looked like a great product. I brought it in 006 Champagne colour as it is slightly pink, but not as bright as any of my other lipsticks.
i like the way that this product works, its quite a simple idea, with the two separate ends that you can mix the colours with and it works very well.
with the colour that i brought, you have a darker pink end and then a clearer end, this makes it great for many different shades as you can apply more of one end than the other.
The packaging of this product is quite plain, but shows what it is. It is double ended, with a colour at each end. It has screw on lids that double up as the brush to apply the lipstick. the brush is very soft, and it applys the colour really well.
As i picked this up for about £3, its a bargain, as you can produce many looks from on lipstick. rimmel lipsticks are usually quite expensive, for what they are, but this is definately value for money, as you can produce many looks from just the one product.
I would reccomend this to anybody who is a big make up fan like me, as you can get many styles for such a small amount of money. It can be picked up for under £5 from shops such as boots, superdrug etc.. this product is also great for night- to- day looks, where you can wear the more clear lipstick from the one end in the day, where at work you might not be able to wear as much, and then at night you can wear the darker shade for a different look
I'm not really a lipstick person but i decided to give it ago so went with the ever reliable Rimmel Brand. Now i like brighter and more vibrant the better so after looking though the impressive range of lipsticks from Rimmel i chose the long lasting finish '006 champagne' colour which is a solid but subtle pink, perfect for day and night use. I picked it up for just under £3 from my local pharmasist.
Excited to use this product i got it home straight away and was somewhat dissapointed with the packaging as it was very simple with just the shade colour at the bottom. I honestly expected more but i still continued with giving it a bash. The lid is however very secure so you know your not going to loose it in your handbag on a night out!
The lipstick itself winds up very easy in its tub and doesnt get stuck which is fantastic as most ive tried have done! I applied it with ease, it was so smooth as if it shouldve been a mineral lipstick, i was thoroughly impressed. My lips felt moisturised as i glided it across my lips covering them all easily. You only need to go over your lips once as the colour shines through straight away but its not too overpowering until you start applying more and more layers.. then it gets abit too much! It didn't sink in the cracks of my lips and didnt clog up in any areas making my lips look dry and horrible. So far very impressed. I would recommend using vaseline underneath if your lips are very dry though.
The overall colour was subtle but still very noticeable and i would recommend this to lighter skinned girls as for darker girls its abit overpowering in my opinion. It didn't have a strong smell either which was good, just a natural smelling one. The lipstick lasts all night even on a night up the town drinking, it doesnt stick to glasses, only to your lips. Your lips stay moisturised without the need to re-aplpy throughout the night. It still looks very natural looking, and doesnt fade at all. In addition, its very easy to remove with make up wipes.
Definetly a hit! I even went out and bought the metallic '088 lustre' colour which is a purply/red colour with abit of glitter. Absoloutely love this too!
This is a review on Rimmel lipsticks, and in particular, their rich moisture cream lipstick.
How did I end up buying this product in the first place?
Well, as a self confessed beauty addict, I was devouring one of my many fashion and beauty magazines when I came across a feature detailing how to produce a certain make up look. The model had super pale skin (like me!) and stunning red lips, a look I had always thought would never work on skin like mine, as I had never been able to find a red lipstick that suited me despite trying. I was desperate to give it a go so I snuck a look at the exact product they had used - Rimmel moisture cream lipstick in Diva Red. So off I toddled to buy it like the sucker I am.
I must point out that this is not my only flirtation with Rimmel, nor with their lipsticks. Practically every make up product I use everyday comes from Rimmel. I find they strike the right balance between quality and affordability, and I'll admit to often being more than a little swayed by a stunning Kate Moss advertising their latest product. They are a brand I trust and I continue to buy their products again and again, so I had a certain amount of confidence that it would be a good product.
Rimmel in fact make a very wide range of lipsticks, some of which are:
Rich Moisture Cream Lipstick - Moisturising
Full Volume Lipstick - Plumping
Full Volume Liquid Lipstick - Plumping and glossy
Lasting Finish Intense Wear Lipstick - Long Lasting
My first ever experience of their lipsticks (and indeed of make up as a whole) was when I was much, much younger, and much, much more clueless. I bought their basic lipstick in a lovely browny beige colour that made me look dead. I loved it though, and spread it on thickly until my mouth was a mass of brown gloop. Not attractive, but we all must learn from our mistakes, mustn't we? Never one to buy beige again (the mere thought makes me shudder!) but thankfully I wasn't completely put off Rimmel for life!
Rich Moisture Cream Lipstick comes in 16 different shades:
Paradise (purpley pink)
Diva Red (bright red)
Adorable (berry pink)
Heather shimmer (violety pink)
Flattery (a deeper version of paradise)
Fancy (dolly pink)
Honey Honey (identical to Paradise as far as I can tell!)
Almond macaroon (browney pink)
Rose sorbet (rose pink)
Mulberry silk (pinkey purple)
Coffee shimmer (brownish)
Indulgence (a deeper red)
Amethyst shimmer (purple)
Dreamy (coral pink)
Fudge brownie (brown-pink)
Latino (dark pink)
The tube itself is a lil treat, its a reddish pink shimmery bullet shaped lipstick with a pink band around the centre. The name of the shade is in a little stickey label on the top. Pull off the lid to find the lipstick inside!
Some lipsticks (usually cheaper ones) can be a little waxy and crumbly after a while. This one however is pretty creamy and quite thick. It definately will give solid colour!
Lipstick smell. Not pleasant.
Well, the colour is fabulous. A bright, attention-grabbing blue red. A word of advice when picking colours (especially reds, which are always tricky). When I say 'blue red' i mean a red with minimal orange in it, which look better on paler skin. Reds with more orange look better on darker skin. Generally, pillar box red can only work if you have fair skin, whereas a deeper blood will look stunning on darker skin. Pinky or sheer reds are best if you're scared of red!
For other colours, I would say steer clear of browny tinted lipsticks if you have fair skin and blonde hair. If you are brunette you can just about get away with it. Corals and more gold toned lipsticks look great with a tan. Pinks are great if you're fair. Berry is for brunettes only I'm afraid!
With red, i recommend using a lip brush to get the perfect precision and prevent colour bleeding out from your lips. First of all, line the lips with the colour using a lip brush. Then use the brush to paint the rest of the lips, really working the colour into the lip so it doesn't sit on the surface. Blot, and repeat. Your colour should look flawless! Finally, make an o shape with your mouth and stick your index finger in, when you pull it out again and lipstick on your finger is the stuff that could possibly have gone on your teeth!
I find that this lipstick goes on beautifully. It's a little bit too thick and creamy if you apply it from the tube but with the brush it gives a lovely matte look, and it doesn't bleed!
I had a perfect, matte red pout in pillar box red. I adore the colour, I think with any lipstick the key is choosing the right colour and this one is perfect for me! Its a great look for if I want to dress up or anytime I feel like making a statement. Maybe a little bit too bright for the daytime, unless you are more daring than I am!
It does, of course, still come off on EVERYTHING! Eating/drinking is not an option, although lipcote can almost solve this problem. Red lipstick marks on glasses is cringey, but it's just the price to pay when your lips look so stunning!
*WOULD I BUY IT AGAIN?*
Yep, i loved it. A bargain find that made me look like an old style movie star from the 50s!
*WHERE CAN YOU GET IT FROM?*
Superdrug and boots stock it. Also, tesco and asda have a more limited selection. If you are a computer whizz, I'm sure you could google it or visit the rimmel website www.rimmellondon.com for a list of stockists.
*HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?*
I paid £3.99, which is a pretty great price for a lipstick and worth it!
Since my favourite colour was discontinued (sparking a horrified cry of "THEY'VE DISCONTINUED MY LIPSTICK!!", complete with flappy hands and 'woe is me' eyes which has probably gone down in history for the unfortunate employees of Boots that happened to be present on that fateful day) I have tried EVERYTHING. Well, not everything, but most things. Many of said things being Rimmel lip colours as a) they are a decent price and do their job very well and b) THAT COLOUR was by Rimmel and I'm clinging on to the false hope that they have just renamed it or something.
Rimmel are not the cheapest cosmetics available, but they're certainly not the most expensive. I've found that they don't tend to have fancypants features like increasing your eyelash volume by up to a billion percent or making your lips look like you've just had a disagreement with a loo plunger... They just do what they're supposed to with nice little added suprise extras, like the way that the colour lasts longer than some other brands, the way that all the lipglosses smell lovely as well as looking and feeling great, and the way that the foundations don't mysteriously disappear from one's mug halfway through a day at work.
The lipsticks are fantastic. The colours come out exactly as they look like they should (I am NOT a fan of a stick of great colour looking pants once it's on), they don't bleed into the tiny wrinkles around your lips that don't exist until there's lipstick in them, and they don't fade after minutes like some other brands tend to.
Yes, I like Rimmel lipsticks.
For the last few years I have been using a lipstick by a much more expensive brand which I loved, then the colour became discontinued! I searched high and low to find another with similar colour and consistency and spent a lot of money. After trying all the more expensive brands, in desperation I tried this Rimmel lipstick in pink champagne and it was fantastic. I now prefer this lipstick to any of the expensive brands and buy it regularly in different colours.It is moisturising and plumps my lips up.The colours are also rich and you only need to put one application on to get good coverage.The lipstick is long lasting and usually stays on all morning I do need to apply more at lunch time. The lipstick can be bought for less that £4.00 which I feel is really good value as I was spending £12.00 on other brands before.It comes in 28 different colours and are described as being either metalic, pearl, sheer or cream.The advert says it is a full colour and high shine lipstick which is true. The only bad point is try the texture first the lipstick I have is described as a sheer lipstick but I would say it was more of a cream.
This is a review for Rimmel Full Volume Lipstick.
The advertising spiel claims: "Plump up your pout with Rimmel's Collagen effect, lip boosting lipstick. Fuller, firmer, more youthful plumper lips without an injection! Feel sensorial plumping actives stimulate the collagen of your lips, for an immediate fuller effect, as well as over time - full on sensational lips. Lips look up to 40% fuller!"
I bought the bright red one called "Screamer" (code 80) and it REALLY is bright and VERY VERY red! You WILL be noticed when you wear this lippie! There's a good selection of colours to choose from (which I've not tried yet and doubt that I will) to cater for most colour tastes.
Costing £4.99 at Boots for 4g, this is a fairly reasonably priced lipstick, but watch out for the collagen effect! It really DOES make your lips look fuller - indeed - like they've been injected with collagen!
You apply it as you would normal lipstick and then wait for a few moments for the tingling to start. The first time I tried it, it felt really odd - within about 30 seconds of applying the lipstick - my lips were all tingly and I was a bit bemused. It wasn't an unpleasant feeling but not exactly pleasant either. I looked in the mirror and lo and behold - my lips did, in fact, look bigger. Now I'm not one of those people who thinks that collagen implants look cool or even attractive and I felt a bit weird with my lips looking so "puffy" (for want of a better word). I will say though that the lipstick glides on easily and has a pretty creamy texture.
I went into work and within minutes of starting work a few of my colleagues said that they liked my new lipstick colour and had I done something different with my makeup? I didn't want to say I was wearing "collagen-effect" lipstick so I just pretended that nothing was different and acted all mysterious for the rest of the morning. It had the ultimate effect of getting me noticed, but not so obvious that people pointed and said "Look at her, she's done a Leslie Ash/Ivy Tilsley!"
Ok, and now for the annoying fact about this lippie. The stuff just about comes off on everything; cigarettes, cups, straws, etc. Whatever goes near your lips is guaranteed to come away with big red stains on it. Lucky my hubby wasn't around that morning for me to pucker up and cover his soft bald-head and face with red lipstick marks ;)
The thing that concerns me most about this lipstick (apart from it staining anything it comes in contact with) is that you have to keep re-applying it regularly. So being fairly cheap compared to a lot of other lipsticks out there isn't actually worthwhile as you end up having to re-apply so often.
This lipstick is great for a night out to impress and get noticed but I'd recommend that you stay away from glasses, cups, or anything that could leave really big and embarrassing tell-tale signs of lippie not staying where it should stay - i.e. on the lips!
If you have smallish lips and could do with a boost, this is definitely the lipstick to do that for you without having to go for collagen injections which could have disastrous results!
Overall I'd rate it just over 3 out of 5...
The title sums up the words that I can now freely say having applied my lipstick. This is since I purchased Rimmel's 1000 Kisses stay on lipstick in the run up to New Year. I normally use a traditional lipstick but felt it was time for a change, as generally by the time I get to my destination the colour has been removed from my lips. Indeed it probably wouldn't even be clear that I was wearing any lip make-up. ~ ~ Price and Availability ~ ~ Rimmel is a well-known make up distributor in the UK. Their make up stands are in most high street supermarkets, chemists and general stores. The stands have tester brands for you to sample before purchase. The 1000 Kisses brand of lipstick is available from this stand and the recommended retail price (RRP) is £3.99. This is about £1-£2 higher than your normal Rimmel lipsticks but this price difference is well worth paying, in my opinion. I buy my products from a local chemist (support the local traders!) and have not paid over the RRP. ~ ~ Presentation of Product ~ ~ The lipstick comes in a tube that is 11cm in length and 1cm in diameter. The distinct Rimmel brand colouring of dark maroon decorates the tube with consumer information written over it. It is not unattractive and fits very easily into my bag. Because of this stick type shape you need to swivel the tube to get access to the lipstick. The amount of product in the tube measures 3cm along and just under 1cm across. This appears to be quite a lot less than you would get in a traditional lip product. The packaging states that the there is 0.07oz (2g) of product. I cannot confirm is this is more or less than a normal lipstick dispenser provides as I have thrown all my old ones away. Yes I think this product is that good! ~ ~ What is says on the tube! ~ ~ Each tube has it's own bar code and a 'Made in Englan
d' sticker. At one end a sample of the colour together with Rimmel's name and code for the colour appears. Colours range from light to dark browns and from light to dark pinks. The colours that I choose were both soft coral colours and come in 'soft matte'. I get the impression that this is a more 'natural' range than a 'glossy cover girl with red lips' type of product. The tube explains that this brand is a long lasting lipstick that is transfer resistant. From my experience an application will last over four hours (an improvement on my old brand) and although I haven't tested the 1000 Kisses statement I have noticed that it does not come off onto cups etc when drinking. Following the instructions (which are recorded in English and French) you must allow the lipstick to dry after application, which takes about 60 seconds. ~ ~ How does it feel? ~ ~ As the hours wear by, my lips do feel a little dry and tight. Some sort of sealant in the product that enables the long lasting effect may cause this. This is a small price to pay and so far has not caused chapped lips. The product leaves no stains and is said to contain moisturising particles to prevent any lip peeling. On a personal note, it is nice not to have to worry about my personal presentation as much, as I know that I do not need to re-apply my lipstick. I had wondered how easy it would be to remove the lipstick but simple cleansing helps here. Indeed a scrub with soap and water does the trick. ~ ~ Where can you find out more ~ ~ One place I would not look is the Rimmel website, I had hoped to be able to provide a link so that future consumers could see their extensive colour range. They do have a website at www.rimmellondon.com but it is not exactly informative. So the best place to have a look would have to be at your local chemist or general store. I
n conclusion I am glad that I 'splashed out' on something different this Christmas. I expect that I will continue to use this product and would definitely recommend it to my friends and fellow Dooyoo users. As for the Rimmel 1000 kisses statement - I've yet to find a willing volunteer to help me experiment!
I have lots of lipsticks but two of my favourites are both by Rimmel, one is a light glitter pink even though it looks bright pink. It goes on easily and stays on all day. It is sort of a summer colour and I usually wear it when I'm going out but not on a aily basis. My other favourite one is white but it comes out siler/white but it is really nice. This also goes on easily and lasts all day. I use this on a daily basis as a middle coat under clear lip gloss and over lip balm. That way it stays on longer and looks nicer. These are my two favourite lipsticks because they last all day, go on easily, and look absolutly fabulous. Definatly get more of it when I run out.
I'm not 100% sure that this is the right category for the new 'exaggerate hydra colour lipstick' by Rimmel, but its a lipstick made by Rimmel so I guess this category is OK! I'm not really one for wearing much make-up, partly because I'm too lazy to do it every morning, and partly because its hard to find the time with a toddler running round! However, when I do use it I do like Rimmel. I don't try many new products, tending instead to stick to the 'old faithfuls', but I decided to give this a go as I got a free sample by 'pressing the red button' on Sky Digital when the Rimmel ad was on! Rimmel market this lipstick as a moisturising lipstick that is also "for greater colour impact" and "softer, smoother, fuller lips". It comes in 8 different shades; * Coffee Shimmer, which is a kind of fairly pale shimmery err, brown! * Freedom, a sort of nude shade with a hint of pink * Hyper, a medium purply plum kind of colour * Groovy, umm shocking pink! * Adore, a medium browny plum * Atomic, middle of the road red * Hot!, a salmony pink kind of colour * Crave, the darkest shade in the range, similar to Adore but a bit err darker! I was pleased with the way this lipstick 'goes on'...very smooth and easy to apply. It feels like a lip balm on your lips, and did seem to act in much the same way as these do on my lips. The colours were fairly true to the stickers on the packaging, although maybe as it is a moisturising lipstick it dodn't really feel as though it would stay on for long, so I do tend to apply 2 or 3 coats to make sure! Even so, it still doesn't last as well as 'ordinary' lipsticks, although it is better than other moisturising lipsticks that I have tried in the past. The packaging is nice, fairly simple and standard in the Rimmel plum colour with a gold coloured band around the 'join' of the lipst
ick. It is a nice size, not too chunky, and fairly uninspiring although practical (i.e. it has been clubbing in my handbag and survived without cracks to the packaging or damage to the lipstick!) At £4.45 (RRP) this is one of the cheaper lipsticks on the market, although not actually cheap, but I think it is worth the money, particularly if, like me, your lips tend to be dry in the winter. The only real whinge I have about this product is that I think it would be nice if there were a few more shades to choose from!
I am a fan of Rimmel products generally – essentially they are department store quality at high street prices – what’s not to like! Lond lasting lipsticks have been around for ages now in the top ranges, but it’s still a challenge to find an affordable option. And once again, Rimmel have come to the rescue. The range does have some15 or 18 shades, but most are very similar,with the same base tones. I do, therefor, find their range of lipstick colours to be rather limited - a lot of warm pinky browns, and bright reds which do nothing for my colouring. Divine Lilac, however, is a lovely cool pale purple with a faint metallic sheen to it (it looks much darker in the tube than it goes on, but remains cool toned, unlike many other colours). Obviously only for evening, but a real find non-the-less. A pale purple that doesn’t go pink on me is a rare rare thing! And it does, indeed, last: two coats, with a quick blot of tissue in the middle, will last the whole of an evening, and not spread itself over my drinks or my boyfriend. It also seems quite moisturising compared to many 'long lasting' lipsticks I've tried, which tend to be rather drying. I've actualy hadto remove it with makeup remover,which is a triumph in itself! It's consistency doesn't lend itself to being applied with a brush; it is very neat to apply straight from the tube. If of only they’d expand their range of colours, I could get quite addicted to this! Superdrug and Boots regularly run offers on Rimmel products, so it ought to be possible to keep stocked up at a discount – as I am addicted to their 60 Seconds nail varnish, I now have three tubes of lipstick, free with various nail varnish purchases. All in all though, this is a hit.
I’m in no way a girlie girl. I haven’t worn make-up on a regular basis for years. But recently, I’ve felt like making that extra effort – not sure why, but now I’m in my thirties, I certainly need to make more of an effort than I did in my twenties! I’ve also been working in school as a parent helper and try to look presentable then. So I decided to be daring and buy myself a new lipstick. (You can tell how dull my life is, when buying a lipstick is daring!) The last one I bought new cost me 50p, so that shows how long ago it was! It was probably bright red and back in the 1980s when I wore bright pink and blue eyeshadow. Yum. So being the sophisticated lady I am <insert suppressed giggling here> I toddled off to Asda and had a look at the make-up section – previously an aisle I had only visited accidentally, on the way to the deodorants and sanitary towels! The biggest shock was the price, with most lipsticks £3 and over!! So instead of choosing by the look of the product, I found the cheapest name brand I could, which was Rimmel. Yes, I know, not a name you would associate with cheap – and you’d be right – but still cheaper than its rivals. The Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick range was selling in Asda for a whopping £2.37 – still less than the ever more ridiculous £3 and over! I was impressed with the range of colours they had and feeling about twelve, I started looking at the testers and smearing the back of my hands with pinks, reds, browns and oranges. The shade I bought is called Sugar Plum (007) and it is absolutely gorgeous, a kind of purple-pink which looks lovely on. It’s bright enough to be noticeable, but it isn’t gaudy or tarty. It still looks silky and shimmering on your lips too and is a colour I would be happy wearing for any occasion. The advertising says this lipstick is ‘long-lasting wear’ and giving
8216;full and sheer coverage’ – well, the latter is true, but I’m not sure about the long lasting bit. There are still lipstick marks around my cup when I drink, and there are some marks on my hand when I kiss it too. (Yes, I know, but my partner’s at work and I didn’t like to drag the postie in while he’s trying to deliver his letters!) I find I usually have to reapply it every few hours, if I want it to be as noticeable, but it stays as a faint reminder longer, if you’re not too fussy. The one thing I found really disappointing about this product is that the packaging looks dull, boring and certainly not expensive. It is traditionally shaped, one of those swivel-up lippies – no applicator brush or a swanky long tube. It is a boring brown-red colour and doesn’t look like I paid £2.37 for it! Besides that though, I’m happy with it and would buy more Rimmel lipsticks in the future. Look of product / packaging = 3 out of 10 Colour = 10 out of 10 Lasting effects = 6 out of 10 Value for money = 8 out of 10
Available in 15 shades of lipstick and 5 colours of packaging i was a bit excited when the new Rimmel "colour to go" range. Made ideally for the clubber i just wanted one to match my purple bedroom, and well, there was a colour to suit everyone really! The lipstick shades range from Smooch to Disco and the packaging is available in orange, green, pink, turquoise and purple. They are also designed to glow in UV lights and really are great to match with an outfit so you don't have to carry your make up bag around. As i tested the lipstick it left a soft colour on my lips which appeared to contain fine bits of glitter, giving my lips with a shiny fuller look. They were going like mad so for a bargain price of £2.29 i took one home. Once i chose to buy one i realised there was a problem. Although all of the colours are really nice i wanted one in particular but they didn't do it in the purple applicator. I was a bit annoyed about this but proceeded on with one that was just as spangly. When i got it home i realised just why it had been so cheap. The lipstick itself was tiny and as i wound it all the way up to see its full length i was a bit disapointed. None the Less i was still happy with it because it was modern and i could save the case to melt other lipsticks into. (You never done that?!) Wearing it at college was the first time and i was constantly wondering if it had came off yet or not. The lipstick left such a light layer on me it was hard to tell if it was still on. I like this because i hate the greasy feel of lipsticks and so does my boyfriend :) rushing to the loo at breaktime to bombard the mirror i saw the lipstick had stayed put despite all my lip rubbing action and i was actually impressed. So the lipstick was small, but it had staying power so i wouldn't need to reaply it that often. Note: Never judge a book *ahem* lipstick* by its cover ahem *size*. Well i guess all
things do come in small packages and even my boyfriend who hates makeup said it looked nice on me. the only bad thing was that it did tend to dry up my lips so the old vaseline came out at night (for my lips - on my face!)and the problem was sorted. If you like bright colours and love shimmery make up then go for this lipstick. I like to apply clear lip gloss over the top if im out somewhere special because the colour is gorgeous but it really isn't that spangly for noticing in a dark club. The price was excellent because the product had staying power and the case was a great idea. The only thing that got to me was how small and light it is, im forever losing it! The size also means that it was a little bit of bother trying to apply the lipstick perfectly but if you're one of those girls (like me!) who just shoves it on and runs down the road with a pair of tights in your hair then you'll get on great with it.
