COLOR: Just look at that beauty! A lovely peachy dark nude. This is sort of like a my lips but better kind of color and I really really like how it goes with pretty much any makeup look I can think of. As it mentions in the ridiculously long name of this lip pencil, it's very "intense" in pigmentation. I definitely wouldn't call this a sheer balm and it's as pigmented as a lipstick.
FINISH: When first applied, this looks very satiny with a nice balmy sheen. The balmy feel wears off after about an hour and fades to a very pigmented stain (looks very lipstick-like). The stain itself lasts for a long time on it's own and may only need a quick touch up to the middle of the pout after eating/ tea drinking. It feels really moisturizing at first and I was happy to see that it didn't dry out my lips after the slippy feeling went away.
Overall Grade: A+
I'm so happy that Rimmel got their mojo back after my disappointing experience with the Rimmel Apocalips *shudders* which you can read about here. The Color Rush Balms conveniently have a twist up mechanism so there's no sharpening required. I'm so happy with this product mostly because it has the pigmentation of a lipstick without the maintenance and looks so chic. There are a bunch of colors in this range and I'm willing to bet that they are equally as delicious. Did I mention that these have a gorgeous vanilla scent?
I highly recommend this lippy! Have you tried the Color Rush Balms? Or will you be putting this in your basket on your next drugstore dash?
Thanks for reading.
