Beautiful but not pink - I ordered this on eBay as itís discontinued. I have extremely fair Irish skin with blue-green eyes and this looks good on my skin tone. I was expecting it to be lighter but when I put it on its definitely a mauvey purple and quite pigmented for day time. I normally wear nudes and cool pinks and this looks more like night time lipstick to me. The texture is amazing and very creamy. This reminds me a little of NYX Thalia which is a great dusty rose mauve.

So I picked this lippy up at Target on clearance for $3.84 on a whim. I had taken a break from being a MUA for a couple of years and had just started to rebuild my kit and needed some lipsticks. I wasn't expecting to like it at all, so I threw it in the kit pile to be depotted and used for clients only. A few weeks later I sat down to depot my lippies for my kit and decided "eh I'll just try it on for fun"...bad idea...I was INSTANTLY IN LOVE! I rushed back up to Target and found ONE tube left. I haven't been able to find any since and recently learned they discontinued this shade :(. I'm heartbroken and currently conserving my stash until I find the perfect dupe lol. The formula is A-MAZING, so much so that I don't even need a gloss with it. I prefer a semi-matte/slightly glossed look on my own lips and this lipstick is perfect! My only complaints are A) I do wish the wear was longer as I usually have to reapply every couple of hours; B) it's discontinued (Rimmel def needs to bring this shade back!)

Lovely lippy- very similar in colour to mac syrup but this is a big more moisturising and a lot cheaper. Can't speak on other's behalf but a great shade for pale blue eyed blondes.

Rimmel and Revlon have some of the best lipstick in the drugstore. Rimmel moisture renew have an awful, cheap packaging (the new one isn't much better) but I love the lipsticks! Vintage pink is my favorite color and i'm disappointed that it is discontinued. I had not been able to find it for months :( Luckily I stopped at walmart and there were THREE vintage pinks in the old packaging. They didn't scan at the register and the clerk said it was because item was discontinued so she gave them to me for a dollar each! The lipstick has great lasting power and it is smooth and creamy. It is not patchy at all. It is more of a plum/violet/pink shade. I would consider it a mauve or purple shade more so than a pink. I have a neutral skin tone but I tend to look better in cool tones as opposed to warm tones. This is certainly a cool tone pink and the purple tone may not be for everyone.

Vintage pink is not really "pink"... it is definitely muted raspberry/violet without shimmer. It's a wearable take on a plum lip for fall, or those trying daring shades for the first time.

I typically love Rimmel MoistureRenew lipsticks, and I really wanted to try Vintage Pink after reading the great reviews. My natural lip color leans to purplish pink; however, I after getting this color and trying it on, I find that this would look much better on my tan skin (summertime) versus my pale olive skin in the cold months. I can see women with fair skin looking fine in this l/s shade!! Lucky you :) NOTE to females who love this color but have warmer skintone: I went to my l/s stash and rediscovered my Wet n' Wild 520A Dark Pink Frost l/s and wow!!! -- It is almost the exact dupe for R's Vintage Pink, but WNW's has finely milled gold shimmer that is not frosty on - It is extremely subtle, to add almost a glowy effect to the cool tones of the mauve/lavender/pink shade. For 0.99 cents it is worth a try!

Love this. I reach for this lipstick most on work days. It's a nice and natural purple undertones pink, perfect for a subtle natural look. The formulation also works well for my dry lips.

This lipstick is much better than I was expecting. It's a pretty pinky-purple, it definitely has some mauve to it but not enough to make it unwearable for me (I don't think there are any of the grey undertones that can make it hard to wear mauves for me). The texture is lovely and it goes on smooth. For the price it is great. I don't know if it's really five lippies packaging but for the price the packaging is solid and durable and not ugly!

I bought this lipstick on a whim... thank goodness it was cheap, because I can't rock this shade!

My skin tone is fairly warm, and this cool-tone pink is just too much of a contrast. That being said, I've worn some cool-tone pinks/purples before and they looked great! There's just something not right about this product. It has a tendency to wash me out. However, it can be salvaged! When I wear a hot pink gloss over top, it looks completely different. My only problem is that I don't wear glosses a lot, so I don't tend to reach for this lipstick either.

Texture-wise, it's great! I think Rimmel lipsticks are the best quality out of the drugstore lipsticks. They're always creamy, and moisturizing. A lot of bang for your buck. I do have a problem with the packaging though. In my opinion, the purple mirrored look is more gaudy than chic. But hey, it's so reasonably priced that I can't complain too much!

I tried this looking for a muted purple (couldn't find Revlon Berry Haute) and I read that it's a pretty close color..and I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE this color!! It's a great drugstore lipstick!! Great color for me, easy way to try purple lips! I wouldn't say it's Barney purple just a purplish, pinkish very pretty color..goes on creamy, doesn't dry like some..had to re apply every hour or so, but I rub my lips a lot
