For me, the perfect lipstick formula has to strike the right balance- not too moisturizing/slippery, and not too drying and uncomfortable. I want a bullet lipstick to easily glide on, provide great colour opacity, feel good on the lips, but also feel safe and secure that they won't smudge and smear.

Well, Rimmel did NOT hit that sweet spot for me with this line. This is way way too far on the slippery, overly emollient shade for me to feel comfortable wearing out and about. It's one of those lipsticks you have to "babysit"- constantly checking in a little mirror to make sure you aren't embarrassing yourself with a big lipstick smear. This might be a bit better in a more nude, light shade- but I purchased 'As You Want Victoria'- an absolutely GORGEOUS brightened, medium-deep, cool pink shade. The colour itself is so flattering and pretty, and it's extremely pigmented and easily glides across your lips. I thought about giving this 2 stars since at least the pigmentation was on point, but honestly.. when a slippery, slidey lipstick is super pigmented, that actually detracts from the wearability of the product, rather than adds to it.

Nowadays there are lots of beautiful lipstick formulas at the drugstore, including from Rimmel's own brand. Give this one a skip.

TL;DR: Moisture is good, but rimmel overdid it! Just too emollient

Really moisturising, very pigmented lipstick, quite comfortable to wear. Good for us dry-lip-ladies. I have Notting Hill Nude, which is a lovely brown nude that looks even more brown on me (everything does).

Because it is so moisturising and soft, it comes off very easily. You'll be reapplying this if you touch anything with your lips.

So, trade-off.

It has a sunscreen-y scent, which fades but is still detectable, so definitely don't buy if you don't like the smell of sunscreen.

EDIT: This shade, Notting Hill Nude, is the same shade as the Kate Moss Lasting Finish Anniversary in My Nude/55, but is more slide-y.

I have 3 of this range in new packaging, I have to say I love the cream finish more than frost one, the shade Notting Hill nude is one of my favourite nude, it is so creamy, easy to apply. please do more cream finish in this range

I've always thought highly of Rimmel's lipsticks, as far as drugstore brands go. Today, I picked up one of these in the shade 450 "Berry Rich". It's a gorgeous, sophisticated, dark nude-y pink and it was perfect for an Autumn/Winter makeup look.

The pigmentation is great. The formula is also very creamy and it was not too drying. Staying power is average for a drugstore purchase, I'd say. The only thing is, the scent of this lipstick smells exactly like Play-Do, at least for me personally. It's so identical, it's freaking me out a little bit. The scent doesn't linger though, so I'm ultimately fine with it.

I prefer the clean, solid packaging of the Kate lipsticks over the packaging for this one, which is similar to Maybelline's ColorSensational with its chunky plastic top. I just find that it looks incredibly cheap, and the plastic isn't exactly a nice colour either. Of course, minor details that don't actually take too much away from an overall very decent drugstore lipstick!

I have two of these: diva red and tower of mauve. Love them both! Great pigmentation and staying power. Super moisturizing but not slimy and they stay on for hours without reapplying. I don't love the scent but it wears off pretty fast. I want more in this line. Awesome drugstore product!

Good lipsticks!

I bought two of these (Pink Chic and Rose Blush) back in the older packaging and formula. About a week ago I purchased two more (In Love With Ginger and Summer Angel) in their new packaging and formula.

The formula feels slightly different. The new ones feel thinner and more lightweight. Also, the older ones had SPF 18 in them and I wish they brought that back! I thought that was a great addition. I wonder why they took that benefit out?

Anyway, these are very pigmented, smooth, creamy, lightweight, pretty moisturizing, and last decently. They have great colors and a nice color selection as well. In Love With Ginger is my favorite. Although, they are too creamy for my liking and slip around on my lips. They can bleed and feather a bit because of how creamy they are.

I can't get over the smell! I love it haha. I can see how some people can find it overpowering. It smells like sunscreen, baby powder, or fabric softener.

Overall, I like these. Not crazy over these but not disappointed. I say try a couple of the brighter colors, as they are so vivid. :D

Love,Love,Love it. It is the only one that completely doesn't chap my lips. Others leave my lips very sore, some more than others.
I also like the fact there is still some stain and color on your lips after eating. Not much, but some and some is more than others.
The price is inexpensive too. I got it at Walmart in the "Berry Rich Color". Looks rich and luscious on your lips.

Love this lipstick! I bought it in the 500 Diva Red shade and I'm 100% satisfied with it. Looks great and it lasts very long, doesn't come off when eating or drinking. Also, it has a nice, sweet smell to it. The price is very good for the quality of this lipstick. Highly recommend and I would buy it again.

Average at best. I really like all other Rimmel lip products, just not this. Bought Piccadilly Pink & while I do like the actual color for the summer, I cannot stand the texture. I get that it's supposed to be moisture but don't like that it's too slippery / slidey, needs extensive layering & constant re-application. Logic is I may as well have bought a gloss w/ a nice doe foot applicator. Not slamming Rimmel tho as I adore Kate Moss's line & practically live in Airy Fairy!
