Simply Lippy Challenge Day 234 | Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Lip Colour in Shade 500, Fire Starter

Ah, good old Rimmel. When it comes to lippy, the brand rarely lets me down and that’s true again for this new range of liquid matte lipsticks they released a few weeks ago.


I’ve tried two shades so far in the range, both of which have been light, neutral shades, and while they were nice, it’s the bold shades I’ve been very excited about trying.


The forumula while it applies creamy, does dry in after a minute or two to leave a super matter finish on the lips that literally does not budge. The staying power of these is just incredible, particularly with this bolder shade.


When I first tried these, I liked the pigment as I always do with Rimmel lipsticks, and I was impressed with the staying power – both big positives that I am really liking again today. But for me, the nude shades quite literally, pale in comparison to this! I mean, look at that pigment!


The red is maybe slightly cooler toned than I would usually choose but it gives the most incredible pop of colour to the lips that is just insane! One layer gives amazing colour pay off, and because it applies creamy at first, you can easily blend it before it dries in.


I’m always drawn to bolder shades more than nudes, it’s just the way I was made! So if you’re like me and you love a strong lip then this is a brilliant budget friendly option for the coming Autumn months.


It does start to feel a little dry as the day goes on so if you have dry lips, make sure you’ve moisturised them before applying this. Other than that, this gets a big thumbs up from me.
