I've Found My Favorite Pink Lipstick!


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!

  1. Hi Emily,

    Love the pink Lipstick you got.

    I feel the same way about Rimmels Lasting finish lipsticks. There are wonderful and you don't have to spend so much to get a good lipstick with great color pay off and texture.

    I agree it does not last for 8 hours but for the price you can't complain. I am in love with these 2shades for neutral looks.

    #077 Asia - neutral beige tone
    #082 Heavenly - neutral pink tone

    Although I don't think I came across #26 Vintage here in Canada.
    Will check it out.

    Love your blog!!!
    Thanks

  2. Gorgeous color, I need to take a look at those lipsticks, so far I've only tried the Rimmel lipliners and those are really great.
    PS: you look adorable, I love what you wear, can I ask where you got your top from? It's super cute.

  3. Thanks! I got my top from JC Penney for around 10 bucks. Everything was on major sale so I stocked up on stuff I can wear for the newscasts! I think they're trying to clear stuff out for new spring clothes, so chances are JC Penney stores everywhere are cutting prices right now :)

  7. Hey Emily!
    I finally picked up a gorgeous nude color:
    #077 Asia - neutral beige/mauve tone
    and I love it because it match perfectly with my lipskin tone. It adds the necessary hint of colour to enhance my lips since they're quite pale. Thanks for the advice b/c it's a great purchace. The awesome think would be to have same prices than US have. ( Paid almost 10€ that is a bit more than I would lol) Anyway: nice staying, gorgeous colour, interesting smell so yeah love it!

  8. Rimmel is by far my favourite drugstore lipstick brand, I love that colour on you it's a shame they don't sell it in the UK, they seem to limit us here. I just did a post on my favorite lipstick shade, it's a Rimmel! Drop by and let me know what you think, regards Xx
