Rimmel London Lasting Finish Lipstick 070 Airy Fairy, Review and Swatches
:pompom: This is by far the most celebrated Rimmel lipstick that I have heard of in the blogosphere. So, I had to get to get one just for the fun of it even though I knew this will not be my cuppatea 😛 I knew this is a milky baby pink with little frost, which can wash me out jolly good and similarly many Indian yellow-toned complexions, but still, I had to get one :headbang:
About Rimmel Long-Lasting Lipstick (from their site):
Lasting Finish Lipstick now delivers up to 8 hours staying power. The improved formula incorporating Colour Protect technology gives up to 25% more colour.
The first time I knew how popular this was when I saw this on katrinalomidze.com and Beboxo youtube channel where she said this is MLBB lipstick and even though I felt it was looking pale and milky on her, she was loving it :silly:. The name itself is very cute and so is the cute crown on top of the lipstick cap. The tube is thick and round and I quite like it, but the plastic seems not so black and classy. Its just a purple black one with nothing much mentioned on the case. The lipstick is a pretty baby pink, almost nude for me and has a little glaze-cum-frost to it and its not flat. The frost is not at all bad and very passable, even if you don’t like the frosted lipsticks.
The lipstick inside is well sturdy and is a full 4 grams I believe. Its very smooth and moisturising and lasts upto three hours on me. I somehow feel it thickens after application on my lips and maybe it does due to the lasting claims. Its not like those thin, light moisturising ones and yet it delivers the color in one swipe. I can very well compare it to L’oreal Color Riche in Sepia/Silk (for anyone who wants a dupe of this), which I sold off in the IMBB sale for 150 rupees :silly:
It’s exactly like that in shade and that glistening kind of finish, but the L’oreal one was much gentler in the case and not sturdy and was on the watery glossy side. The shade nevertheless is an exact dupe of the silk one. It can also be a little like NYX Thalia in my opinion, but Thalia is creamy and not so frosty.
My Take on Rimmel London Lasting Finish Lipstick 070 Airy Fairy:
It’s a nude milky pink for me no doubt, but nothing that I am fond of. My face sure needs some color and this can look awful and pale on me without a proper base. On the other hand, it can look very classy with a light pink matte blush on and some blue black smokey eye. One swipe matches my lips you can say, but when I wear this, my face longs for some color, which means it does wash me out. Its not my kind of pink and I don’t recommend it to dusky beauties. If you are lighter and pinker in tone it may look nice on you. Sometimes, when I wear this, it looks as if my face is brown and yellow and my lips are milky pink grrrrr. I would safely wear it over a darker pink.
Who Would Like It?
If you are fond of nude lips, for office, smoky eyes, and are a little lighter and pinker in skin tone, if you can do up a good face base with a light pink blush, if you have dry lips, if you need a moisturising lipstick – you may like it.
My lips almost drink up this color for the barely-there effect. It can look very pale and awkward on me, but its definitely a very pretty color in my opinion. It has that glistening effect when light hits it, which is neither gloss nor frost, but just a very pretty sheen to it. The packaging is nice and strudy. The lipstick is smooth and moisturising, can be on the safe side when I mix it up with some kind of NYX doll lipstick. On other days, its gonna sulk in my fridge!
