The Product: Meet Rimmel's Lasting Colour Rush Intense Colour Balm ($7 CND for 2.5g)
The infamous Clinique Chubby Stick started it all - with the crayon-type lip balm/stick. Now, of course, almost every drugstore makeup brand has come up with their own version. I have heard rave reviews about some of the drugstore versions such as Revlon - but it was Rimmel that got me the most excited about their version of the lip stick. I'm a big Rimmel fan - from their nail polishes to eye shadows and eye liners - I think they're great! Over all I find their products are very good quality, and available in a wide range of colors. The product claims it is a "Lightweight long lasting intense colour and moisture... Intense... smooth lasting balm that is comfortable to wear all day." The Rimmel website states the balms come in 7 colors - but the color I purchased was not listed on their list so there are likely more colors out there. I purchased the color 610 "Sun Kissed". I loved the pink-nude, I think a great transition color from winter to spring! The packaging itself was pretty standard - like many of the lip balm 'crayons' out there where you twist the bottom to bring up the product.
