The latest lipstick release from Rimmel is a liquid matte lip colour, following the trend that many beauty brands have followed over the past year or so. I don’t know if it’s a 90s style revival driving the release of so many matte lipsticks, but I am loving them and this new release is no exception.
Naturally when I read about this new collection I was excited to give them a try, and the first shade I tried was a peach toned nude shade which has a lovely pigment as I’ve come to expect from Rimmel lippies.
The colour pay off is excellent and just one layer of this will go a long way to giving your lips a matte look. While the colour itself is nice, I have to admit, I’m much more excited by the bolder shades which I have a feeling are going to be gorgeous.
The formula is wet when you first apply, and it does take a minute or two for it to try in like most liquid mattes. It’s not moisturising or hydrating, and if I was having a very bad dry lip day which I do get from time to time, I’m not sure that this would be the best lippy option as my lips did start to feel a little dryer as the day went on.
The reason I like liquid mattes is mostly because of how long they last on the lips and this one definitely has lasting power. It didn’t flake or crack throughout the day, and the colour really remaind true to the colour it was when I first applied it which I always like in a lipstick.
Given how nice the pigment is and how well it lasted, I can’t wait to get my hands on the rest of the collection and see how they compare. But for now, I’m pretty impressed overall and will happily wear it again.
