Airy Fairy is the most popular of Rimmel's shade selection, as it's a great every day color that is flattering on several skin tones. The color is a pink-mauve with a golden sheen. The actual color is quite "cool" (purple/blue toned) but because of the golden sheen, it's a bit more wearable on my warm skin tone. I stay away from lipsticks with any traces of purple to them, as they do nothing for me - but because of the popularity of this color, I thought I'd take the opportunity to try it out in a recent swap. I'm not too crazy about it alone, but it looks really pretty under a pink lip gloss. The formula is smooth, applies evenly and feels moisturizing on the lips. It is fairly opaque and builds well for full opacity. Here's what it looks like on my lips: http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-dh1ITJQNIko/TdA5YUD5PrI/AAAAAAAABpw/soC4vfq5Z8A/s1600/lipstickgloss.jpg
2 years ago I read a review on this lipstick and knew I wanted it; unfortunately they donít have this colour in the UK, only in the US. So while I was in Vegas I popped in to CVS and finally found it for only $4. I was so impressed with it I went back and bought another one before I had to leave. Itís a perfect pink!!! Perfect for everyday and smell gorgeous
Gorgeous lipstick. I'm a bit confused tho. Mine isn't very pink.. It's almost a purplish brown.
I don't know if they all look like that or if it's just mine
It's very moisturizing & I love the smell of it.
The perfect pink! I picked this up at a Walgreen's 50% off sale. It's absolutely perfect for everyday! I love the smell and packaging. It lasts a long time, and applies smoothly. Only problem is that this is a very popular item, so I can never buy backups!
I got this b/c I heard it was a MAC dupe. I first noticed that it doesn't seem like you get much l/s, it seems shorter than any other lippie. I liked the color but HATED the smell, very cherry cough-syrup like. So I swapped it. If anyone knows of a true Dupe, PLMK!
Perfect pink, moisturizing and cheaper than other brands
You can tell this is a cheap l/s because it feels dry and gritty on the lips. I applied this l/s @ 8am and by 9am it was completely gone. All I did was breath and that took the l/s right off lol! I did give this l/s a 3 because the lovely color makes up for the texture. The color on me is a light cool pinky mauve which compliments my skintone. I'm NW30 and have pigmented lips for reference. Airy Fairy looks great w/ cool mu looks like navy, silver and fuschias. Another great quality is the packaging. I love the cute purple tube and the shape of it. Also, Rimmel l/s are dirt cheap which is a super plus in this economy! The bottom line is that I don't think I would repurchase this again only because I have so many higher quality nude l/s and feel much better on the lips.
This isn't a colour I reach for too often compared to my other lipsticks but it is still a nice colour. It's very natural on my lips. The formulation is really nice. It glides on smoothly and doesn't make my lips chapped. When I first saw this in the tube it reminded me a lot of MAC's Angel lipstick. Compared side by side they looked pretty similar. When swatched and looked at from afar or at first glance you'd think they're the same. however Airy Fairy has a peacher undertone and it looks like it has golden flecks. I don't know if that's just me but well.. that's my opinion lol. I love Rimmel's Lasting Finish lipsticks. I think I probably would repurchase.
Really a great lighter nude pink. Very creamy to put on, love rubbing my lips together after! I am cool toned, but I think this has just enough brown in it to swing neutral. Very MLBB on me.
I love this lipstick it is gorgeous! I picked the wrong colour for me though. Next time i need a shade lighter from the sugar plum, unlike most lipsticks its smells lush!! It stays on all day, I would definatley buy this again! x
