You're probably eagerly anticipating what this amazing lipstick is. I shall save you from your suffering then!
They are none other than the Rimmel London's Lasting Finish Lipsticks.
|Wearing Heart Breaker and loving it!|
Ironically enough, Heart Breaker instantly stole my heart and I ain't ashamed of it. Not so much in love with Amethyst Shimmer though. Once you look at the swatches and read along, you'll find out why I love Heart Breaker.
Let's begin swatchy swatching!

First up is Amethyst Shimmer.
You can see my full face view here.
Next up is my favourite, Heart Breaker.
comfort, and price is all top notch. It does not dry out my lips and my lips feel so comfortable after wearing this. It applies smoothly and it's the perfect rosey-red shade for me.
HOWEVER! Remember how I said I have one minor issue with these lipsticks? Well, that issue is the smell. They smell like one of those horrible strawberry flavoured cough syrups my mum used to give it to me as a kid. I hated that stuff. Ever since then, I stay away from anything and everything that's artificially strawberry flavoured - strawberry milk, strawberry ice cream... The smell is stronger for Amethyst Shimmer then it is for Heart Breaker. Now that I think about it, I think this was the reason why I haven't been using these lipsticks. I can deal with the smell, but I would rather not have any scent at all T____T
Here's a full face view with Heart Breaker.
Who would I recommend this to? To anyone looking for an affordable, long-lasting lipstick.
Lasting power? It lasts around 4-5 hours without eating, and 3 hours when eating. Even after I ate, I noticed I still had some stain of the lipstick left.
Pigmentation? The colour is so vibrant and the lipstick is very pigmented. Only one swatch and you're ready to go!
Repurchase? Definitely. But perhaps in different shades.
Overall? Five stars!! Minus some points for the smell. Otherwise, I am very happy with them! :)
I am definitely going to check out other Lasting Finish shades now that I love Heart Breaker so much. I really hope other shades don't smell as bad as these do. I also want to try out the Kate Moss collections, especially the matte ones. So yes, I believe I am now going to slowly collect all of Rimmel's Lipsticks ;D
Do you own any Rimmel lipsticks and what are your thoughts on them?
Love, very happy Court :))
