Current Lipstick Love

Current lipstick love swatch

I tried to think of some ‘witty’ title for this post but with no avail. ‘Current Lipstick¬†Love’ gets right to the point doesn’t it ūüėČ If you are a regular reader of this blog, you will know that I go through phases with lipstick; sometimes I can’t get enough, other times I prefer to ditch the lipstick¬†pile on the gloss¬†(Revlon Brown Sugar¬†is my glossing weapon of choice). But recently I have been re-embracing my sizeable lipstick¬†collection. Ones like Rimmel Alarm¬†and Faces Black Cherry¬†will always be at the top of the pile, but my new love is a lipstick¬†that has been hanging around for a while, over a year actually (naughty) ‚Äď it’s Rimmel Burgundy Shine.

I purchased this lipstick¬†all the way back in May 2013 from NYC. A moisturizing¬†formulation, it is a shimmer-free, lightly pigmented¬†that applies a soft colour that is easy to build up. The colour itself is not a million miles away from the usual tones that I go for ‚Äď a peach with a hint of brown. I know it is cruel to rave about a long-gone limited edition product but you can get the same sort of colour from Rimmel Dusty Mauve, although it lacks Burgundy Shine’s¬†slightly rosy tones.

Oooo you got to love a messy hair photo ūüėČ Prior to this my hair had been clumped on top of my head in a rather attractive ‘pineapple’ like appearance ‚Äď noice! I just love the effect of this lipstick. It’s just the perfect ‚Äď ‘my lips but better colour’ lol! Not too red based, and not too unnatural looking ‚Äď perfecto! What is your go-to lipstick? If you fancy more of a peachy-toned lip, Rimmel Burgundy Shine¬†comes highly recommended, that is probably my favourite lipstick¬†of all time. Right that is more than enough rambling about lipstick¬†for today ūüôā
