Good morning and happy Saturday!
Was feeling a bit “meh” on Thursday, so I went for a quick retail therapy session picking a small amount of makeup :p
Nothing beats the bright lippy for a good cheer up!
I went to Superdrug after work, wanting to take advantage of the 3 for 2 offer across all cosmetics. I was interested in the Maybelline brow mascara and wanting to try some blur creams.
Anyhow, my mini Superdrug shop haul includes, Rimmel London Kate Lasting Finish lipstick, Maybelline Brow Mascara in Dark Brown, Barry M limited edition nail paint and a tub of Loreal Magic Blur cream.
Today I am reviewing the lippy! To be honest, I have enough lip products to last me until next decade. But since all makeup has a “best before” date, this is a valid reason/excuse for me to get more :p
Rimmel London Kate Lasting Finish Lipstick in Shade #31
This is from the Urban Bohemian collection launched on the 14th May 2014. The collection contains jewel like shades for eyes, earthy tones for lips and boho-inspired shades for nails. If you have time, do check out the rest of the collection. Really lovely mascaras in jewel tones, sapphire and emerald coloured liners.
Packaging – This lipstick is in the Rimmel Kate signature matte black with slanted lid packaging. Kate matte lipsticks are in matte red packaging. All printed with Kate’s signed logo.
Product and formulation – Fab! ha not sure what else I can say about it. The colour is intense, texture is creamy; it feels good on lips and non-drying. Although this is not a matte lipstick and it lasts longer than expected. It has a nice scent to it, which fades away gradually when worn on lips.
The colour of Shade #31 is an earthy toned red. It looks like Rimmel Moisture renew lipstick “As you want Victoria”, but Shade 31 is a shade darker. This is more rose pink than a red, love this colour!
I just read that these lipsticks contain light reflecting Black Diamond and Black Mica for depth and intensity. Interesting fact :p
Price: £5.49 (Boots £3.99 currently on offer); 3 for 2 offer at Superdrug
Availability: In most Boots stores, Boots online, Superdrug, Rimmel London UK website; in all major drugstores within in US.
Overall Summary: 4.5 out of 5. I love the formulation, longevity and the colour.
Well, it did the trick. Everything is not as bad as you think when you’re looking back. .. sometime I need an excuse for shopping hehe
Small and little things can cheer me up.. hugging my cats at the end of work day!
What cheers you up?
