FAVORITE PINK LIPSTICK?! I know, it's a bold claim! You'd be as excited as I am if I posted a pic of all my non-sucessful pink lipstick purchases. Recently I was in Walgreens (buying Rimmel makeup on a BOGO deal), and I knew I already liked the Lasting Finish lipstick... I had it in a different color that's sort of a deep red shade that I sometimes use for work. So I thought, what the heck, I like the creamy smooth texture, moisturizing feel on my lips, and the fact that it has pretty decent staying power. I had a hunch- like a really positive feeling- when I picked up the shade in Vintage. It just looked so wearable- light pink, but not bright. Nice nude undertones that keep it subtle and natural.
After putting in on as soon as I got in my car (cause I'm like that, I'll open makeup that I'm really excited about IMMEDIATELY to test it)... I was right! This is a kick ass lipstick! I find a lot of nude lipsticks I like, and quite a few red/berry shades, but hardly any pinks! This, however, is the best for me. And I felt the need to blog about it, because I thought it'd be the best for a lot of other people too.
A few important details:
NAME: Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick in #26, Vintage
PRICE: Around $5... prices vary by store
AVAILABILITY: You can find Rimmel cosmetics at most drugstores/discount stores
PACKAGING: Smooth dark maroon tube with a the little Rimmel crown logo on top. classy.
SCENT: Light slightly sweet scent. Pleasant and not strong.
AMOUNT OF SHADES: 30 shades total, so you have options if you don't like #26 Vintage
PRODUCT CLAIMS: (according to Rimmel website)
"Locks colour to lips for up to 8 hours wear. 50% more colour. Soft, smooth, comfortable formula."
HOW WELL IT MEETS CLAIMS: I must admit, I don't think this lasts for 8 hours. Fortunately I love the shade and texture so much, it doesn't bother me to reapply. It's not like it slides right off your lips, but it's not an 8 hour lipstick. If you're not eating or drinking, it will stay on rather well for several hours. Absolutely comfortable on your lips and nicely pigmented.
I think that pretty much covers it! I love this lipstick and I hope you'll get a chance to check it out too! This lipstick was also featured on my latest Shopping List Ideas video on my YouTube channel. http://www.youtube.com/emilynoel83
Have a great day everyone!
