Review: Rimmel Long Lasting Lipstick


 Hello Loveys!

Todays post is a review on the Rimmel Long Lasting Lipstick including a swatch. I purchased this lipstick in the hope to find a peachy toned nude shade. This lipstick shade 250 Birthday Suit seemed perfect! I rushed home and applied immediately. The shade is a gorgeous nude, with a hint of peach and shimmer.

Rimmel states the lipsticks is "long lasting", now don't get me wrong I love the shade and the fact that it smells amazing!!!! But it is drying and I did have to reapply a few times so I would not say it is particularly long lasting. I would repurchase another Rimmel lipstick within this range as I do love the shades available and they apply well but I would ensure I had applied lipbalm beforehand and make sure I checked whether it needed reapplying throughout the day with a handy mirror in my bag!

Have you purchased one from this range? If so, how did you find it?

  6. I don't think any lipsticks are long lasting, but I can't believe it drying, I love my Kate Moss lipstick :)

    1. I found Kate Moss wasn't drying either, so it did surprise me when this one was. I find my matte finish Mac Lippys last. :) xx

  8. This is such a lovely lipstick shade - so sad to see that it was drying, I find that a lot of drugstore lipsticks are unfortunately :(

    Thanks for leaving your link during the #bbloggers chat - I love your blog.
