When Rimmel released these liquid lippies a few months back, I was very excited to try them out, mainly because I’m a big fan of Rimmel lipsticks in general. I’ve tried both light and bold shades from the collection up to now, all of which I have liked, but I definitely have more of a preference for the bolder shades.
I loved the last shade I tried, Fire Starter, however, I think I may just love this one a little bit more. I mean, just look at that pigment! It is bold, rich and the colour is stunning; it is right up my street when it comes to a lippy.
The colour pay off with these lipsticks is incredible; definitely one of the best I’ve ever tried, and the pop of colour you get from one light layer is brilliant. I love dramatic shades like this, especially in winter, and this lippy is definitely dramatic!
One thing I did notice which was a little annoying, was that it didn’t layer quite as well as Fire Starter, and the colour did slightly drag when I was applying. I think that’s probably because the formula takes a few minutes to dry in, so you’re probably better waiting for that to happen before applying another layer.
The formula itself feels creamy when you apply, and has a nice smooth finish to it that is lovely to wear. However, this is a super matte formula so your lips could become a little dry throughout the day if they are generally on the dryer side.
I spent the day in town Christmas shopping followed by a night out tonight, and this was the perfect lippy shade to accompany me. It’s a stunning bold winter lip choice.
How do you feel about bold lipstick shades like this? Do you love them or loath them?!
