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.
Well the results literally changed in hours. At first application - the balm went on quite smooth. I needed a few quotes to build up the color but this is expected with balm as they are usually a creamy hydrating formula that you need a few coats to build up the color. Below are the results with the balm freshly applied.
What's your favorite lip crayon? Have you tried the Rimmel's Lasting Finish Colour Rush Intense Colour Balm?
