I have this in 180 Jet Set Red and I love it!
formula: very rich and creamy, not too drying but not exactly moisturizing, best worn with a balm underneath. Without liner, lasts about 3 or 4 hours, with liner about 5 or 6, which I think is pretty good for drugstore, not amazing. Does need a touch up after eating or drinking. There is a scent but I never have a problem with scents; it's pleasant, kind of a sweet fruity scent, though some might be bothered. It does dry me out a bit after a few hours.
colour: this is really pigmented! one swipe was pretty much opaque on my lips. The colour is, I find, a pretty true red, though may lean warm on some others, I think. It's a really beautiful red lip and works really well on my fair, fair skin.
packaging: not the greatest, not the worst. It's a shiny dark tube with the same colour lid, no clear plastic window through which you can see the bullet. Doesn't come sealed so always pop the lid off and check it before you buy. I've had no problems with the lid coming off on me or anything, so that's good!
price: pretty good! I picked this up for about 6 or 7 dollars in Canada, and to me that's a win because everything seems to go for more here than it does anywhere else. definitely worth it!

They're okay. I have two. The colours I have are absolutely wonderful. However, there are some issues.
The main issue is that these lipsticks are extremely drying & no matter how much lip balm I wear under & over these lipsticks, my lips are dry like crazy. Plus, despite the fact that both of the colours I have are quite dark (a mauve & a dark blue-based red), in the light & with flash photography, they both look bright pink. It's really really weird. Inside, they are true to colour. But outside, they're just .. pink. And I hate pink lipstick =/
On the upside, they do have a faint vanilla scent which I like, & they're some of the cheapest lipsticks you can find in Australia.

Creamy, pigmented lipsticks with a stench. This is what is so telltale of inexpensive makeup - the overwhelming cheap, plastic scent. I give up on Rimmel and their lip products. Not very appealing to slather something smelly on my lips, near my nose.

I bought this lipstick in Jet Set Red because I was looking for something similar to Estee Lauder's Nectarine lipstick, and Jet Set Red was very close to that shade - not to mention a LOT cheaper! It also complemented my warm skin tone very well since it is like a coral-red. It lasts for about 3-4 hours on average, though you could make it last a bit longer with the usual techniques to do so. As mentioned in another review, this lipstick is a bit drying, so you may wish to use a balm underneath. Overall, a good colour and product!

I went to walmart looking for a true red lipstick and my mom had a Rimmel coupon so I decided to get this in jet set red. This product was horrible. I deseches it on my wrist and it came out nicely but the next day I tried it out and the color came out very orange. I decided to keep it on and in an I drank some water from a bottle and when I looked in the mirror all of the lipstick had rubbed off. I will definitely be returning this.

I bought this lipstick in Jet set red because I wanted a versatile red to use for pin up looks but I found that the red tends to look dead on my cool pale complexion unless I wear a beige or yellow tinted foundation. Overall, the lipstick itself stays on well for about three hours and it is drying so it is necessairy to put a lip balm on first.This product would look much better on someone with more of a warm skin tone.

I've tried the Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick in "Crush" and "Kiss." I believe there are about thirty different colors and they are all long-lasting formulas. "Kiss" is a bright shimmery pink, and "Crush" is an nude/orange color with golden undertones. These are long lasting, but I wouldn't say for eight hours like it says. These lipsticks are very creamy and very pigmented.

I've only tried "Airy Fairy" which is a mauvy nude. It's gorgeous but the lipstick itself is too drying for my lips. It does last for a while but then it makes me want to put on layers and layers of chapstick cause my lips crack. :(

I purchased this at CVS on clearance for $1.50, so I wasn't expecting an HG product or anything. Pink Blush looked nice in the store, but I shouldn't have trusted the display! It's a bright barbie pink, and I can only wear when paired with a peachy gloss that cancels out the fuschia/pink. I might have bought this in another color, more suited to my skin tone, but the smell of this was awful! It reminded me of cough syrup! The scent is definitely noticeable and ruins a nice formula.

I have Heavenly and Dare. These swatched nicely on my hand but looked pretty bad on my lips, but I won't review the product based on my bad selection. These lasted for several hours on my lips without drying, which isn't too bad. The only problem I found with this lipsticks was that in general the shades were particularly frosty or shimmery. Dare became noticeable frosty if applied heavily, but if blotted it's a nice wearable red. Heavenly seemed to look like a pink/mauve but turned purple/light pink on my lips. The upside is that I can use these as blushes instead! I don't think I'd purchase again, unless they bring in new colours that aren't so frosty.

006 in Pink Blush
Nice, creamy lipstick. I was looking for something similar to MAC's Viva Glam lipstick, and this one does the trick for me. It's not entirely matte, has some sheen to it but no shimmer, which is great - and it's a great price.
-Staying power: okay
-Moisturizing? At first, but after a while, seems to dry my lips out a bit. Applying lip balm before is good.
-If you have cracked, bumpy lips, this pale color will highlight them so buff lips, prime or balm them first
-Smell - sweet, cotton-candy type smell. Not sure if I like it.

I bought this product in airy fairy. I always do my research on drugstore make-up before buying it and I found NOTHING negative about this product before I purchased it. I immediately went to go get it, and so far, it's amazing! The color I got was 070 airy fairy, which I read SO many good reviews on and I absolutely adore it! I accidentally got 2 so I gave one to my mom, who loves it as well. She normally can't pull off pink-ish lip color, but she looks great in it too. I give this product 2 thumbs way up! The packaging is nice, and the color and smoothness of the lipstick is fantastic.

Was researching some MAC shades when I stumbled across Candy 002 at the local drug store. Fell in love after swatching on my hand (along with 4 other colours), and went back the next day to buy it. It's a gorgeous pale frosty pink with silver shimmer. Stunning! Pigment is good- better than expected for the price of $9AUD! I topped it with a clear gloss to tone down the silver frost, but I think it may just work without a top gloss. Will be buying this one again. Was also looking at shades Crush(peach shimmer), frosted (bronze shimmer) and Fancy (medium pink shimmer). So many choices!! Only gripe is the tacky/cheap packaging, but hey- can't complain with the price and nice colour inside!

I don't know about those other reviews, maybe I got a bad tube or it's just the color. I got this in Vintage, and while it was a pretty, cool pink in the tube, it was just gritty when I applied it and showed up as mostly glitter and no color on my lips. On the upside it wasn't drying, but there's absolutely no reason for me to repurchase when I've had much better luck with Revlon Super Lustrous for a few more dollars.

I have this is 006 pink blush and I adore it! Its one of my fave lipsticks and was pretty cheap. I love the smell and the texture and it is a lovely colour.

I just bought this lipstick in metallic shimmer and not only does it feel great on but it does not feather at all! The cost is great for the quality of product that you get. It is one of the best lipsticks that I have tried and i am very picky about my lipsticks. You don't even have to put lip gloss over it for it to shine. I would highly recommend this lipstick. The only bad thing is that there were not alot of colors to choose from at the Walmart I went to.

As of right now, I'm not too impressed. I bought Vintage with the free 1000 Kisses lip liner in natural or nude (can't remember which name it is.)
The case is cute and brown with a crown embossed on the top. The cap is a little less secure than I'd like but not horribly so. The lasting power is okay over chapstick and 1000 kisses lip liner, about 2 hours of work solid and a little reapplying after eating or drinking.
Vintage (026) is a mauve-pink with silvery sparkles. It's very cute in the tube, a color similar to what I'd normally choose. The texture is bad. The sparkles in this color make an otherwise nice and smooth lippie gritty and unpleasant. Would not repurchase if the colors have glitter in them.
Want to try Drop of Sherry still, as long as it has no sparkles. Otherwise, would not buy again.

I love their lipsticks! They have great colour selections. It's strange how majority of people find it drying, but I find it moisturizing. Rimmel is one of the best drugstore brand lipsticks in my opinion.

This is a review for Rimmel Lasting finish lipstick in Rich Raisin.This is a reddish lipstick with a creamy finish.It was gifted to me by my aunt and sat on the shelf for some time as quite a few red lipsticks look too bold on me. However on using it over some time,I found that though I still had to be careful about the application, it would give a lovely natural looking reddish tint to the lips if applied a little lighter.Even a little heavier buildup was tolerable depending on what colour clothes I wore.This is a great reddish colour with creamy finish and a light moisturising effect.

Gotta say, drugstore lipsticks are impressing me, these days. First Maybelline's Moisture Extreme blew me away, now Rimmel, too?
This is an absolutely amazing lipstick for the price. It's creamy, well pigmented, lasts all day and comes in a gorgeous array of colours. They can be a little drying, but that's easily solved by wearing a balm under them. Other than that there isn't too much else to complain about. (Unless you count the less than stunning packaging, but that's a minor thing, and it's not horrible.)
I currently own Dizzy (beautiful medium pink,) Pink Shimmer (pretty much exactly as it sounds, a light shimmery pink) and Airy Fairy (gorgeous nude pink shimmer) and I love all three of them. At 2 bucks a pop, I can definitely afford to expand my collection, too.
