This review is for the Rimmel London Lasting Finish lipsticks that my hubby got from the US. Considering this was his first cosmetic shopping and that he did it all alone, the end result was pretty good! I got a good haul of lipsticks, gloss, face masks and other goodies.
Today, I am reviewing the Lasting Finish Lipstick from Rimmel London in shades “Pink Blush” and “In Vogue.” Well, what can I say about the shades, these were two shades that I least expected that my hubby would like to see on my lips! Off to the review:
Product Description from Rimmel London:
Well, on the lipstick, the product does not claim anything apart from the range name being “Lasting Finish Lipstick” and since it was my hubby who got it, I dont know what the SA at the counter claimed!
3$ for 4 gm.
The packaging is quite classy. It comes in a shiny black tube which is quite sturdy! ( I dropped it quite a few times to find if it was sturdy).
My Experience with Rimmel London Lasting Finish Lipstick in Pink Blush and In Vogue:
The shade “Pink Blush” is a frosted baby pink! It is absolutely frosted and completely no shimmer. If you are a “no-shimmer” kind of a person, please try this! Well, but the downside is that it is hugely frosted and I am not sure what kind of a look I have to do to carry this as I am of medium to dark skin tone, but this will look real great on bright-skinned beauties! In fact, the moment I had it on me, I was wondering it will look great on Rati di! :woot:
Apart from the frost, “Pink Blush” is a huge hit with me! It is completely matte and hence can be used for daily wear. The pigmentation is pretty good and with single swipe, you get a good color on the lips, but as my upper lips are hugely pigmented and this being a light shade, I had to take 2 or 3 swipes! The lasting power as the product claims is real long and it only faded slightly even after 5 to 6 hours! I am going to try this with a light-colored outfit and light makeup to create a summer look! Will let you guys know the outcome!
The shade “In Vogue” is a the “fuchsiest of fuchsia pinks” that I have seen!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Never thought I will own a lipstick of this color! I tried it for an evening outing and it worked fine though, but this is a real party color and cannot be worn for normal occasions! It is deeply pigmented and hence one has to be very careful even while taking a single swipe! Also, the color tends to bleed, so it is better to use a pencil liner before using this! Personally, I look for this shade when I have to attend weddings!
On the whole, these are two very different shades and I would never have personally picked them up from the stores, but glad that both of them work for me one way or the other.
Pros of Rimmel London Lasting Finish Lipstick in Pink Blush and In Vogue:
- They last real long for 5-6 hours and withstand meals also.
- They are deeply pigmented.
- They are moisture rich and creamy and don’t dry out the lips.
- They are a great quality buy for the price.
- They are available in a huge number of shades.
Cons of Rimmel London Lasting Finish Lipstick in Pink Blush and In Vogue:
- They are completely matte with absolutely no shimmer, so it may make your lips look dull without a gloss, but if you love matte, then please give them a try.
- The darker color tends to bleed though cannot say the same for all shades.
- They settle on crease lines when applied without a lip balm.
- Not easily available in India.
Overall, I am happy about the lipstick quality, but not sure if these shades will be a hit with me! I will definitely re-buy this, but in different shades.
Please try these and share your experience of the same.
