I bought "Rimmel Airy Fairy" based on all the rave reviews here and on Youtube; however, it is just a cool-toned matte nude pink lipstick with a hint of mauve that disappears and looks too light on me. Rimmel may have pretty colors, but I can't stand the smell of their lipsticks...
I mean, what the heck are they thinking? Something that goes on womens lips should not only look pretty, but smell and taste pleasant!
When I first saw this color, I wasn't sure it was going to look good on my lips. I have pigmented lips and sometimes the color just doesn't blend with my lips and it looks weird. Plus, not all nudes look good on my NW15 skin. I decided to buy it anyway since it was like 5/6€ only and it was the BEST decision I made! Airy Fairy blends perfectly with my lips and while it's nude, it has that pink tone with a very subtle golden shimmer that brings warmth to my skin.
It's my go-to color when I'm not sure what to wear. I can wear it with smokey or dramatic eyes or just very natural look. To me it's just PERFECT :)
I thought this would be too cool for my fair, yellowish skin but it is actually a very nice colour. Somehow it blends perfectly with my lips and looks very natural. Recommended.
Have to give a thumbs down on this, sorry, it just did NOT work for me. I am 46, medium brown hair, blue eyes, fair skinned. On me, it was sheer, weird.... Just a blah looking color, did nothing for me, the best I could describe was a light pinkish peachy tone, just washed me out. I hated that it didn't look better on me as I read good reviews and was anxious to try it, but, it just didn't cut it.
I was so excited to see this in my local pound shop, I snatched it up and and couldn't get to the till fast enough.
I love it. It's the perfect pinky nude for my NW15 complexion. I like that it doesn't have any shimmer, and it goes on smooth and even.
So happy I was able to get this for a quid. I'm going to keep my eyes peeled for more. Loveliness in a tube. <3
This is a soft, natural pink. The subtle golden sheen makes the complexion look nice. It's not moisturizing, but it doesn't dry out my lips either. It's actually the first lipstick color I've liked on my lips. However, whenever I wear it now, I find myself wiping it off more than anything.. because the texture is just so unpleasant. The lipstick balls up and spreads unevenly if I don't have lip balm on. I have to smooth it out with my fingers. It also accentuates lines on my lips. From far away it looks nice, but up close it looks dry and bleh.
i did expect that lipstick to be my favorite rimmel lipstick, but i don't think so..
the color in the swatches look absolutely amazing but on my lips it's the opposite
it make my lip feel dry after few moments and not moisturizing at all ..
plus it looks more shimmery on my lips than it does in the tube
Some of the pictures of this on MUA are misleading-on some of them it looks almost lavender and this is anything but.
I have coloring like Snow White-dark almost black hair, porcelain skin and blue eyes, and pigmented pink lips. Finding nudes is very hard for me but this one is a winner.
Best way to describe this would be medium pinkish nude with no shimmer which is rather neutral. I think it would look good and natural on many skin tones unless you are very dark. I recently discovered this as I never cared for Rimmel lippies before because they would bleed but they must have reformulated it because staying power is stellar.
Formula is semi matte and creamy and goes on very smoothly, even without lipbalm. After wearing it for a while it does feel a bit dry so if you don't like to wear gloss on top, you may not like this. I always wear gloss so this didn't bother me.
I would definately repurchase!
I was looking for a dupe of MAC's Viva Glam V to see if I liked the color before dropping $14 for the MAC lippie. After a little research, I find that this is considered to be a dupe. I picked this up for about $5. The color is a dirty/mid-tone pink. No shimmer with a slight lustre. I love the color as it suits me well and would be a good nude lip color for me. I took 2 lippies off for the smell (that cheap lipstick smell) and the fact that it is very drying on my lips. I won't repurchase.
It goes on smooth, feels soft and moisturizing on the lips, and tastes and smells okay. It feathers easily, unfortunately. It's good, not great. Too shimmery to rebuy for me, though.
