This is my all time favorite lip colour. I would describe this lipstick itself as being a cool toned mauvey pink which can read as somewhat purple When applied on my lips this lipstick reads as a cool toned rose. It makes my super pale complexion look healthy and natural rather than sickly and it makes my teeth appear whiter to boot! I would not say it makes me look less pale, just not as gaunt. The pinky roseynes of it screams "this chick is healthy and not anemic, just super white". The formula is pretty moisturizing and lasts decently for a cheaper drugstore lipstick. Even if I hated the formula I would likely continue to repurchase this lipstick as it is one of the few lip colours I have repurchased and seems to look great no matter what I am wearing. The only other colour that I have come across that I love almost as much as Vintage Pink would be Revlon's Kissable Balm Stain in Honey - which I would say is similar to this but warm-toned.
Update 5/24/12 Since the original post, I have gotten more into lipstick and have tried everything from NYC to Lancome. I have to say that this is my hands down favorite lipstick. It's become my go-to everyday lipstick and I just love it. I've seen it compared to MAC Syrup and IMHO they are nothing alike. I have both and Syrup is way more of a sheer warm rosy pink, whereas Vintage Pink is a more pigmented cool-toned purple-y pink. Personally I greatly prefer Vintage Pink.
I'm not a big lipstick person, but I really love this product. It really brightens up my face and adds a look of health to my pasty countenance. So if you're translucently white and cool-toned like me, you might like this. I'd describe this as a mid-toned mauvey pink color. There are definite purple undertones, which are understandably not everyone's cup of tea. It feels very creamy, similar to NYX's Round Tube lippies if you've familiar with that texture. Lasting power is a few hours. I took off one star because I can't stand the smell. I did everything to get rid of the scent--put it in the fridge, aired it out without the cap for a few days--but alas, it lingers.
The only lipstick I have ever got to the end of! It really does suit my colouring I always thought it was best to go for nudes but they seemed to wash the colour out of me. I got this on offer for £3.99 so if didn't suit wasn't a big deal. But the colour is gorgeous and with a neutral toned eye I add this. Makes my lips look fuller and lasts at least till lunchtime ( I put it on at 6 am). A really good find and also found a nude called birthday suit which I have finally found to suit me.
I'm always surprised when I come across this shade in my collection and try it on - it works so much better than I would think from looking at the tube! It's a very cool, bluey pink, and fairly light; in a creamy formula that's usually a recipe for weird uneven application on my pigmented lips. But the Moisture Rich formula applies very smoothly, even though the cream shades seem less sheer than the frosted ones. This shade is quite flattering and although I wouldn't say it's "natural" it does coordinate with my fair, cool skintone very well. There's just a hint of mauve/taupe in the undertone that makes it more practical than it looks at first glance.
I was bought this lipstick as a birthday present from a very good friend. I love it. The packaging is sleek and nice, and the formula is creamy. The only reason why I decided not to buy this product again, was due to the fact that I do not feel like this colour suits my skin tone.
A great mauvish pink lipstick that would suit most skin tones. Lovely texture and not bad smell either! Good lipstick at a great price!
I just discovered Rimmel lipsticks and am surprised how much I like them. They are very moist and hold up pretty well.
I wear 180 Vintage Pink with NYX Candy Shop Gloss or MAC Just Superb Cremesheen gloss over. I also purchased 210 Fancy which is perfect on its own.
Let me start by saying that I always have issues finding lipsticks that work well for me. I have very pigmented lips that tend to get dry easily...and I find most lipsticks look patchy and don't go on smoothly, even after using a lip scrub. But oh my gosh! This lipstick is amazing- it goes on perfectly- it's creamy and makes my lips look absolutely perfect. It's also very moisturizing so it doesn't highlight rough or dry spots. The colour is very pretty, kind of a mauve-y cool toned pink, although it seems to show up slightly darker on my than others. It's a beautiful colour regardless though. I love the finish, it is completely free of shimmer, but it's glossy so you can just wear this on it's own and it looks great.
Really like this lipstick. Beautiful cool toned pink, which is a MLBB shade with a hint of shine. Goes on really smooth and I love the purple packaging.
I love this lipstick! Vintage Pink is ultra flattering and I swear the slight blue undertones make my teeth look a little whiter (something I usually only notice with blue based reds). The formula is really creamy and comfortable to wear and I really like the smell; it reminds me of powder doughnuts for some reason. Can't be beat for the price!
