Lou's Review's: Rimmel Colour Show Off Lipstick

Aloha Bloggerinos,

I'm having beauty post withdrawal symptoms, so to satisfy my makeup needs, here's one to smile about!

The other night I was in Tesco with my chum Shmannyshmell (aka Dani) and whilst she was looking for hair dye, I meandered over to the makeup counters. I was having a HUGE hankering for a bright pink lipstick for my hen do and knew I wouldn't have another chance to buy one so decided to choose one there. The selection was very limited and the shelves sparsely stacked, so I was driven to the Rimmel counter.


I don't really have much from Rimmel and for some reason, never really look at it. I think I have been put off by the really annoying "Get the London look" thing that Kate Moss did, did anyone else feel gggggrrrrr'd by this? She gets my wick I tell ya!

Anyway, in short, I picked up the Colour Show Off Lipstick in Pink Gossip and I'm bloomin' well glad I did!


It retails for £5.99 and there are 12 shades to choose from. This lipstick has a velvet finish and excellent staying power. Personally, the velvet finishes don't float my boat, so I apply a slick of lipgloss (with this I like MAC Dazzleglass Extra Amps or Baby Sparks) to add a but of lustre.

I like this lipstick because you can apply one coat for a reasonably sheer finish or 2-3 for a more dramatic look. If you look back to my hen night pictures, I'm wearing it there- woop woop! I've also done you a little swatch to show the difference between 1 and 3 layers. Lovely jubbly. Also, do you like my bracelet? I made it!!


I love love love the pink metallic finish to it, I like to leave it on my desk at work to perk up my day! How sad is that?! Ha.

The only negative I have about this product is the fragrance. Some people might enjoy it but it reminds me of play lipsticks I had as a child and I'm overly keen on this.

All in all, a great lipstick and I am looking forward to having the mula to try out some more colours. Have you tried this? What were your thoughts?

Toodlepip!
