Rimmel Color Show Off Lipstick Review
One of the highlights of taking a flight from Delhi’s airport, is you get to stroll through the big Rimmel Counter they have ! Usually i am one of those hyper flyers who lines up right at the front as soon as (sometimes even before ) boarding is announced. This time however, i got so lost amidst the colors of Rimmel that i nearly missed my flight (Ok, i exaggerate- but I didnt go to boarding until 10 minutes after boarding is announced which is like living on the edge, dangerously for me ok. I never do that) . The boy hates flying with me because he likes to go board when they announce the last call !!! Uff.
Anyway I picked up Rimmel Color Show Lipstick in Pink Excess , which is kind of like Mac Mehr for me, except this is not as pale so those who get washed out with Mehr will definitely enjoy it and this has some shimmer in it. The color is a pretty, soft pink , but the tone is warm so its one of those rare pastels that will work on Indian Skin tones !!! Im not a fan of the shimmer, but its pretty unnoticeable on the lips!
As far as the Color Show Off lipstick is concerned, im a little bit bummed out honestly. Iv tried Rimmel lipsticks before and they were stunning ! This one however is not as creamy as i expected it to be- definitely feels a bit gritty on the lips. Its also not opaque in one swipe- you need two swipes for sure…however it does last for ages ! So makes up for it in that sense.
Pros of Rimmel Color Show Off Lipstick:
- Pink Excess is a gorgeous soft, warm pink that is super flattering on medium and light skintones
- Long Lasting Lipstick which does not dissapear after a meal
- Tha packaging with the crown is adorable (remind some of Victoria Beckhams line of clothing- i have a pair of jeans with a crown on the butt)
- Not as creamy as i want a lipstick to be
- Texture is slightly grainy
Price: Rs 415/-
Recommendation: Rimmel Color Show Off Lipstick in Pink Excess is such a pretty, soft pink that i really wish the formula was better and creamier. If this were in a more moisturizing and creamy formula this would definitely make it into my top 5 list of lipsticks
