Rimmel London Exaggerate Full Color Lip Liner In Pure Swatches & Review (1) Rimmel London Exaggerate Full Color Lip Liner In Pure: Swatches & Review

Guest Review By Swastika

I was at the Delhi airport on a recent work trip and I found myself standing in front of the Rimmel counter .All I can say is that it left me no chance to get BORED at all though I had reached three hours early at the airport. I was on a makeup shopping ban – I had decided to not buy any more makeup till I used up my existing stash…but I gave myself a tiny little break from the ban and bought this beauty at the Rimmel counter – the Exaggerate lipliner in 005 Pure.

I haven’t tried the Rimmel brand before this and I am rather pleased that I gave this a try – it is all I would ask for in my lip pencil – the color payoff is rich, stays put a long time, but if used as a lipstick –it is little drying. I thought the price was pretty reasonable too..I wish I wasn’t on a makeup shopping ban – then I would have picked up a lot more of these pretties.

Color: The color is a pretty upbeat pink – with a slight hint of red. It is the perfect everyday color – it brightens up my face without being over the top and is one of those beautiful pinks for dusky tones that adds an oomph without really looking too pink.

Also, wanted to mention that the shape of the pencil makes application really easy. I line with the sides and fill in color with the flat top.

I also get bored when arrive at airport early…… and same as you I always spent that time at duty free counters at airports. This shade is lovely and quite suits you. I don’t mind using this as lippie sometimes even if it is dry because this is such a gorgeous shade.


Swastika December 14, 2013 at 9:45 am

Totally love duty free


Swati December 13, 2013 at 2:15 pm
