I've been so EXHAUSTED lately just trying to finish up assignments, prepping for classes and tutorials that I have not had time to blog. I feel so 'out' of the blogging sphere.. =S
But anyway I'm taking a quick break from all the craziness to bring to you a review on one of the lippies I'm currently lovin'! =D
|What's in this tube of purple goodness? =D|
Product: RIMMEL Moisture Renew Lipstick in #600 Soft Coral
Made in: England
Packaging: This lippie comes in a bright, glossy royal purple plastic tube with a plastic rim. It feels very light- like I'm not carrying anything at all! It has a very 'fun' and 'young' feel to it, although I would not say it's classy. The packaging can look pretty cheap sometimes.
Colour: The colour is a peach-pink nude with slight orange undertones to it, which I think can be a suitable colour for many skintones as it is more of a soft peach colour. It has tiny silver reflects in it which gives it a glittery look.
Lemme give you a close-up on the tiny glitter particles in the lipstick...
Can you see them? There's LOADS of it! Haha! =D
Scent: The lippie has a rather strong floral-citrusy scent which may be a turn-off for those who dislike scented lipsticks but it doesn't really bother me. =D Plus, the scent fades away after a while when applied on the lips. Or maybe my nose got used to the scent. Hehe!
Application/Texture/Consistency: Soft Coral has a slight watery texture to it which allows smooth application, and it applies glossy. When applying, it can feel a bit gritty 'cause of the tiny glitter particles but I do not really feel it on my lips. The texture is not really drying, although I always prep my lips with a lipbalm prior to applying lipstick for easier application. It gives a nice, light finish and the colour is buildable as one layer is pretty sheer.
Here's swatches of the lipstick in different lighting conditions:-
That's a swatch in natural lighting. Looks slightly orange-y yea?
And here's the swatch in indoor lighting...
And in indoor lighting it looks more peach-nude to me.
Durability: It lasts on my lips for approx. 4 hours, which is pretty long-lasting I'd say! Although re-application is a must to make sure my lips are nicely coloured. =D
Price: At RM26.90, I really cannot complain about it being expensive. It really is worth the money for the colour shade, quality and content!
So here's a picture of the lipstick applied on my lips:-
Would I repurchase?- Yep I would. The colour is pretty light which makes it very versatile and suitable for many occasions like school, work or just a casual day out without me feeling too glammed up.
Where can I purchase this?- In pharmacies such as Watsons, Guardian and also in Parksons Departmental Store (the bigger ones I think, not the small ones)
I'm gonna post one more post and then I gotta get back to my work! Haha!
So what other peach coloured lipsticks have you tried and like? =D Would love to hear from you!
