I used to have a pretty simple lip routine – either Maybelline Baby Lips or a MAC Lipstick. A couple of months ago though I went on a beauty shopping trip and spotted the amazing array of Rimmel London Lipsticks. They were a complete bargain for only $10 a pop so naturally I had to choose two.
The Rimmel London Lasting Finish by Kate Lipsticks have quickly become my go-to lip products. Shade 16 is a bright peach-toned pink that is surprisingly perfect for everyday wear and shade 09 (my favourite) is a deep berry hue that is just stunning this time of year.
I recently got the new Rimmel London Apocalips* to try. I’m sure you’ve heard of them by now – they’re a unique product on the market in that they’re a lip lacquer. What’s a lip lacquer I hear you ask? It’s the best of lipgloss and lipstick combined; it has the application of a lipgloss without the stickiness and it has the longevity and pigmentation of a lipstick. Intrigued? You should be! This product is wonderful! Ever since I discovered the wonderful world of lipstick, I moved on from lipgloss; I sometimes found myself missing the convenience of the easy-to-use doe foot applicator though. Hence my excitement to try Apocalips. I have the shades Apocaliptic (a bright raspberry pink) and Stellar (a stunning pinky-coral). Oh and how cute is the name? I’m a sucker for a good pun!
It’s safe to say I’m hooked on Rimmel London lip products (and other products too) and I cannot wait to try more!
P.S. Did I mention that Rimmel London lip products smell AMAZING?! They’ve got a yummy fruity smell that I could just sniff all day… but I won’t… I promise! 😉
