This is my first lip liner, and I wanted it to be my nude everyday lip liner :)
-Good lasting power (makes my lipstick last longer)
-Convenient twist up crayon
-I find it to me uncomfortably sticky on the lips...especially when I put my lips together
-For pigmented lips, I do not recommend it for a natural shade lip liner , because it made my lips look a pit purple.
The sticky part really pushes me to unlike this product xD So, I will try another one, hoping the color will match better too :)
On my 4th tube of this stuff, I would be very very upset if it was discontinued. I've used all kinds of high end lip liners, but this one takes the cake. I am NC20ish right now, and this is a perfect lip color for my coloring. It's a great neutral pink, I don't find it nude. It doesn't pull too cool, or too warm...just that perfect neutral pink with the right amount of brown in it. I use this as an all over lip color most of the time, and top it with MAC's Deelight cremesheen gloss. The texture is surprisingly smooth, it doesn't tug when my lips are dry, and it's super pigmented, I've found this looks great not even topped with anything because it leaves a really great velvety matte finish. 5 star product and cheap, I am never without it.
These lip liners are really a hit or miss, unless I just got a bad batch on a few. But this color is amazing. The texture the softness and of course, the color. I really like this color because it goes perfectly with a lot of my pinker/darker MLBB colors. I finally snatched this up today at Walmart for around $4. It was the last one and I've never been able to find it in stock before. But, next time I do Ill be grabbing as many as i can.
Love this almost as much as addiction which is deeper in color. This is great for fair to medium skin tones*Hint* to get a nice sharp tip and not waste any precious color, turn until the tip of the product is at the tip of the tallest point of the slanted plastic tube/casing. Then rub the color across your lip until the product is shaped like the case! Instant perfect sharp edge for precision:)
"Rimmel Eastend Snob, where have you been all of my life???"
Having neutral-cool toned skin and slightly rosey lips, I've struggled to find a lip liner that actually matches my natural lip color. Most nude/natural liners have brown or orange undertones which aren't flattering against my skintone. Eastend Snob is a neutral-cool toned, soft nude pinky mauve. I love it paired with clear gloss or balm or with my favorite lipstick, MAC Patisserie. The texture is smooth and I don't find it drying. I highly recommend giving it a try!!
Guess I'm one of the only people who really, really dislikes this product.
First off, the shade. It's very blue/purple toned, so when I apply it on to my lips, it looks like I drowned. You know what I mean? That kind of blue but purple/pink lips. Very unattractive. Many people will love the shade, but on my pale skin, I literally look dead.
Second, the way it feels on my lips. Biggest minus. It feels so goopy, tacky and so damn sticky on my lips. Feels so disgusting. When I press my lips together, they stick together then disgustingly un-stick. I really hope I'm making sense here. Makes me want to wipe it off straight away. And in a lot of cases, I have. Feels like a sticky, tacky, drying film on my lips.
Next up, the texture of the lip pencil. Every time I used it, literally every time, it snapped off and broke. Every damn time. I finished this lip pencil in a week because of that. It was creamy, but too creamy. Even applying as little pressure as possible, it snapped. Was impossible to use.
This actually wasn't as drying as some lip liners I have used, but those ones didn't feel like a sticky film on my lips. Will definitely not repurchase. Ot makes every lip product I put on top of it feel sticky and disgusting. So glad it works out for so many people, but not for me.
Good luck xx
It is a very good product especially for the price you pay. Comes in a mechanic plastic packaging that has the same colour as the product itself. I find it very convenient. The texture is smooth and soft, maybe a bit too soft. Colour is muted nude pink with a hint mauve, medium light. Very much reminds me of NYX 858 Nude Pink.
The only drawback I find is that being a mechanic pencil it is impossible to sharpen the tip.
This lipliner is great value for money, it is a dusky rose colour which I think would suit most skins tones. I had been looking for a subtle cool-toned pinkish drugstore lipstick for a long time but most tended to look either bright and garish or pale and unflattering. Obviously as it is intended as a lipliner it can be quite drying when applied all over the lips, so I use a lipbalm such as Elizabeth Arden's 8 hour lip protectant or just good old vasaline over the top. I only wish they made this exact colour in a lipstick!
Amazing. Beautiful color pay off. I have NC 40 skin and it comes off matching my lips perfectly. Only things I don't like is that a) it's retractable & b) the tip is angled weird. Other than that amazing natural colored lip liner
Years after, I keep on coming back to Eastend Snob. This shade is the perfect MLBB shade for those with cool toned mauve-pink lips. I explore to find comparable "nude" liners that will work for my lips but most liners that are called nude, natural, flesh etc are way too warm based, orange or brown based for my natural lip color. I will be SOL if Rimmel ever discontinues this shade! If you also like Eastend Snob and is looking for a nice lipstick to match with it, try MAC Modesty. Both provide the ultimate natural looking lip for mauve-pink lips.
