I am writing a review probably after ages because I have been too held up with my wedding last December and then a new job. Now, that I am back to my routine, I would like to get back to my one of my favorite hobbies i.e. reviewing and reading about products on IMBB. Isn’t that such a joy? On my recent trip to London, I picked up a few lipsticks from Rimmel London.
For those who don’t know, Rimmel London has the quality of high-end lipsticks at drugstore prices. Rimmel London is now easily available in India on Nykaa. Read on to find out my experience with the brand and the shade.
Price: £6. That’s roughly 480 INR. I got one lipstick free on purchase of 2 lipsticks. YAY!

My Experience with Rimmel London Stay Matte Liquid Lip Colour Fire Starter:
Packaging: The usual liquid lipstick tube with an applicator. The tube is see-through and the shade shows on the tube. The applicator is a flattened paddle applicator, similar to the NYX Lip Suede applicator.
Colour and Texture: A red bright liquid lipstick with a slight tinge of orange. Overall, it turns out to be a blood red on the lips. The formula is mousse-y, similar to the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams, but they feel light on the lips.
Pigmentation: Excellent colour payoff! The best I have ever seen. One swipe deposits 90% color on the lips. It works really well for pigmented lips as well.
Staying Power: Super awesome!
I’ve not bought a red lipstick shade in a long, long time. Why? Because I am an ardent fan of MAC Ruby Woo and I had decided that I have found my perfect shade of red and that is it. However, Ruby Woo is a deep red, and Rimmel London Fire Starter is a different and a brighter red. I fell in love with the lipstick on my first application. It brightens up my face, hides my pigmented lips, doesn’t transfer and stays forever. You don’t need a special remover to take it off at the end of the day. Overall, it’s a great buy for the money you are spending.
Pros of Rimmel London Stay Matte Liquid Lip Colour Fire Starter:
• Extremely smooth to apply
• Lovely bright color
• Matte finish
• Moisturises lips; doesn’t dry them out
• Good pigmentation
• Not so expensive; affordable
• Extremely long-lasting
• Pleasing fragrance
Cons of Rimmel London Stay Matte Liquid Lip Colour Fire Starter:
• At times, it ends up being streaky at the end of the day when the color starts coming off from some places
5/5. It doesn’t deserve any less.
