It’s Friday! Is there any better feeling than a Friday feeling?! I really don’t think there is, although, I’m smothering with a cold / flu type thing so feeling a little under the weather the last few days.
However, not even the flu can stop my Simply Lippy challenge, and today’s lipstick is an old favourite lip crayon from Rimmel.
The shade is what I would describe as a rich pink nude, as it leaves a subtle pink tint as it wears off throughout the day. It looks more beige than pink in the tube, but once you apply, takes on a slightly pinker tone.
The balm itself is very creamy and moisturising, and has pretty good lasting power as the title suggests. It keeps your lips hydrated while you wear, and also has a gorgeous vanilla scent to accompany the soft pigment.
This was the perfect choice for me today because I needed something easy and hassle free. My skin is so dry and dehydrated, my nose and eyes are streaming and I’ve a sore throat. So, on a day where I really didn’t have the energy to worry about my lipstick; this was great.
Unfortunately it didn’t last as well on my lips today as it normally does, but that’s totally down to my cold and not the formula.
As you can see from today’s photos, my tube is very well worn at this stage which will show how much I like this. But I wanted to show you what it looks like new so I took an old photo from last year’s review post and added it below.
Lip crayons really became popular when Clinique introduced Chubby Sticks a few years ago and I’m definitely a covert to them. How about you guys?
