Lipstick is one of my very favorite things, so let’s do a big old post about it!
I wear lipstick almost every single day, and I have tried so many different brands and shades over the years, especially the red ones! Here are some of my favourites…
This is a great pinkish-brown shade for everyday wear. It is neither loud nor non-existent. The cream sheen formula is perfect and very comfortable for all day wear.
Stunning shade, looks great on the skin, makes the teeth look whiter and not to mention it’s great for everyday wear. This has got to be one of my favorite lipsticks.
I was recommended Captive by a university friend and I got to say I absolutely love this colour. I have noticed it looks so different on different people more so than other lipsticks I’ve ever used, which may account for all the different opinions and reviews I have read
It’s quite dark while still being more on the neutral side and I believe its perfect for the fall and winter season. I feel more comfortable wearing it at night but you can defiantly incorporate it into your everyday look.
It defiantly does not feel dry on my lips, but I do find it less long-lasting than a matte Mac lipstick. That doesn’t mean it doesn’t look good.
I’m not too keen on this shade, I guess for me it only looks good with the right type of makeup and outfit. On me it’s a mix of red/brown and a tiniest tinge of orange? My lips are quite pigmented and dark so in a way I love how this shade brightens up my face.
This shade is defiantly long lasting probably a good 4-5 hours after eating and drinking. You wear this both during the day and evening although it might be a bit bold for pale skin tones.
What a BEAUTIFUL colour it is!!
This is a fabulous formula because it’s actually matte. It does finish velvety. It may be drying to some people but I don’t have that problem personally.
This dark red is just plain flattering. If you don’t have perfectly white teeth, this is your red. !07 helps alleviate yellowing of teeth, while you’re hot and spicy yellow or orange reds, accentuate discolouring you may have
You can put it on lightly for a red that’s going to pop or layer it on for a super dramatic very deep red. It stays dramatic even after you blot! The wear I consider fair/good for a lipstick that isn’t claiming to be 24 hour or anything like that. You may need to touch up like any other lipstick but I did find depending what on what I was eating. It held up quite well at times. I’d say the 2 or 3 hour mark the colour fades, but unless it’s been smudged or wiped there’s still a good pigment on the lips.
Hopefully Rimmell have more colours in their matte line because it’s a great formula.
