Pros: affordable, beautiful shades
Cons: disgusting taste

Hiya! Smile

As far as you understand, I love lipsticks so freaking much… brights lippies are especially a weakness of mine Smile I’ve tried the Rimmel lipsticks before, so I was curious about this range, too.

I have 2 shades: 06 and 12.

06 is a bright pink tone. It’s vibrant and very beautiful. In the sun it looks neon.

12 is an orange tone. I’ve been looking for such a color for quite some time.

Price: $2-3

The tube is very simple, without any frills yet stylish. The stickers are the only setback here, but you can easily make it right by removing them.

Volume: approximately 4 g

The texture reminds me both of a soft moisturizing and matte lipstick. As a result, we have an easy application and a long-lasting pigment on the lips. The color is intense even after the first coat. It’s the same brightness as in the tube.

The lipsticks smell like cherry with vanilla. The orange shade smells stronger than the pink one.

Now let’s talk about the advantages:

  • bright colors

  • doesn’t crease or flow

  • stays put about 6 hours after coffee/tea and even after a snack

  • at the same time, the lipstick removes with any dry tissue easily, which means that it doesn’t absorb in my lips

  • doesn’t dry out my lips. However, it all depends. If you have always used lip glosses and traditional lipsticks, this product will seem tightening to your lips. If you ever tried a matte lipstick, then you’ll find this one perfect

  • inexpensive


Nevertheless there is also a drawback. Actually every product has drawbacks Smile

  • the product has that “cheap lipstick” taste about it… The orange shade has it even more than the pink one. By the way, I’m not the only one who feels the taste. Most of the beauty bloggers do not use Rimmel products due to this taste.

Moreover, it has some peculiarities for you to consider:

  • the lips have to be smooth before application, as every bright or dark shade can emphasize your flakey bits. I won’t say that I purposefully take care of my lips and apply a lip balm every night. No, I do it very rarely. However, after brushing my teeth I use my toothbrush for scrubbing my lips slightly. The effect is good for this lipstick.

  • If you want to touch up your makeup, it’s better to remove the product and apply it again. It’s the same with matte and half-matte formulas.

The lipsticks in action:

  • Most of the lippies I’ve tried do not fully cover my lips. They leave my lips without any pigment inside. Rimmel does sometimes apply the color well.. Smile

Now I’m going to show you these shades in different lighting:


Almost neon in the sun

In general, I’m obsessed with these shades and I like the staying power, but the taste… I’ll use them up with pleasure, but I’m not sure if I ever buy any other shade in the range. If you want to try this lipstick, that is something to consider.

P.S. Note that the lipsticks are new, so the taste doesn’t depend on it. I’ve been using them for 2 months now, but the taste is constantly there. I couldn’t get used to it, unfortunately.

P.S. again: I totally forgot to warn you. Keep in mind that orange tone makes your teeth look yellowish.
