Two weeks ago, as I went window shopping at Wal-mart. Just checking if there were any new products for fall season. My five year old son was with me at the makeup section and he picked up this lovely color (Rosette) for me to purchase. Well, this was not the new collection from Rimmel. But then I thought, well I haven’t been buying lipsticks lately and I desperately need one. I preferred to get Revlon because I just love the creamy and matte texture. Anyways, so thought it would be a good idea to get this one. First reason, so that I will not disappoint my son and second I pretty much like the color when I made a color swatch. I believed there were like twenty different colors to choose from. So, I paid $5.47 for 0.14oz.
I got to admit that this lipstick was too creamy and it glides easily on lips. It’s smooth and nice on the lips but in my opinion the formula was too moisturizing or I would say wet. It’s smudges and on top of that, Oh dear, it has such strong scents. I can’t tolerate the smell of the roses scents (too strong for a lipstick).
I like the color I got in Rosette but not so much on the texture.
Lips without lip liner and lipstick yet.
I put on the lip liner before applying this super moisturizing lipstick. It’s super pigmented and that might be the reason why it bleeds color like crazy.
This lipstick has intensed color shade. It’s bright and had glossy finish. So, when I tried to check on the color transfer. I was suprised to see the amount of the color transferred. I refused to believe to get three times of color transfers by just applying one coat of lipstick. I rest my case.
The color wasn’t as long lasting as the Kate Moss Long-lasting lipstick by Rimmel. I’m terribly disappointed with this one. I don’t see myself wearing this lipstick again. It will be in with my other Collectible haul (products that I will not used again).
For that price at Wal-mart or any drugstores, and to pay $2 more, I will definitely go for Revlon Super Lustrous lipsticks ($7.99 at Target) anytime than to go for this particular product.
