I agree with x3n below - Lovely, lovely colour, application is lovely, lasts OK, not drying but the chemical crayon smell bugs the beejeebers out of me - Rimmel, please make this colour in the Lasting Finish formula because that is just lovely. PLEASE!
EDIT: OK I added another lipstick because I do really adore this colour - if you leave the cap off for about 3 days, the obnoxious scent does dissipate quite a bit. It doesn't disappear completely but I can now use this with out freaking out over the yucky smell. Yay! :)
I really like how this lipstick feels. It makes my lips feel really smooth and soft. I hate lipsticks that make my lips feel dry and this one doesn't at all. Plus if your lips are dry before, it doesn't accentuate the dryness. This lipstick is a pretty shade but on some days it looks more vibrant than others. I guess it's because of the way I do my make-up. For example if I'm wearing a lot of bronzer and peach blush, the lipstick will look great. But if I'm not wearing any bronzer and blush and I just leave my natural paleness to show, then this lipstick looks much brighter. It's a pretty vivid pink with a hint of purple and reminds me of the lipstick Barbie wears. It's definitely not a light frosty pink or anything Playboy Bunny-ish. I like to wear this alone when I'm going out clubbing at night but during the day I like to put some lighter lipgloss on it (Rimmel Vinyl Lipgloss in 'East End Snob') just to slightly tone down the purpleness. I can't remember what I paid for this lipstick since I bought it a while ago, but I don't think it cost too much. The packaging is great and hasn't cracked or broken. I'd probably repurchase it once I use it up.
LOVE this lippy!! Iv looked every where for a more skin tone with a hint of pink and iv found it! Perfect if you want to add just a little colour to your lips without being to dramatic.
Will deffinatly buy again! On sale at the moment too. WIN! :)
This is one of the best lipsticks I have bought.
It is a nice pinky mauve colour that looks excellent on my skin tone ( medium)
Every time I wear this to school, I get many compliments.
I bought this because I wanted a lippie that was a pinky mlbb but unfortunately Vintage Pink didn't turn to be what I was looking for. Instead, on me it turned into an 80s-esque bright purpley shade as opposed to the soft, natural pink I had been seeking. When I apply Rimmel Mirror Shine Lipgloss in 'Smitten' (a sheer pink shade) it tones it down the purple notes somewhat and makes it a little more wearable. I won't be repurchasing. I'm Mac NC25 for reference.
love, love, love. I'm fairly pale, and this looks really pretty on. It's great for when I want something to amp up my natural lip color. The formula is excellent, and I actually really enjoy the smell, it reminds me of slathering on my mom's lipsticks when I was a kid.
It's darker in the tube then it is on. AND OMGOSH is it purple. I have dark red lips so maybe that's a part of it, but "pink" is not what it looks like alone on me. If I want to make it look pink I have to use a nude lipstick underneath
I agree with other reviews here that the moisturizing properties are fantastic-even if it doesn't last quite that long...
The smell doesn't bother me at all, however I generally don't have a problem with the scent of cosmetics. I also do not have a problem with the taste...
This is a pinkish mauve color with some purple undertone. It is super moisturizing and doesn't dry out my lips at all.
I like to fill in my lips with Nars lip liner in Sex Machine then apply Rimmel Vintage pink over it. Looks so pretty!
Really pretty pinky cool toned lipstick with a hint of mauve. Creamy and smooth formula that wears well throughout the day. Love wearing it with neutral brown or green eye looks with a light pink blush.
This was recommended from a fellow MUA when I posted a blog about wanting to start wearing lipstick instead of gloss all the time. She was spot on the color is very pretty on, it looks A LOT better on then the color of stick itself. The color can look a bit intimidating at first. The consistency is very creamy, and I also put one of there summer nude glosses on top for fun! Smell is a tad like crayon but who doesn't love that!
