Since moving away from a city with MAC and Sephora I've been finding myself heading over to the drugstore a lot more to buy new makeup. I saw in a Shoppers Drug Mart flyer that selected Rimmel face and eye products would be on sale for $3.99 this week, and I couldn't pass up the opportunity to try out some products that I wouldn't normally try while the prices were reduced.
I decided to go with two relatively safe colours: Amethyst Shimmer and Dizzy. I don't normally go for shimmery lipsticks - I tend to like a more matte finish - I rarely wear any lipgloss, either. Since the prices were reduced I decided to try out the shimmery colours anyway.
Amethyst Shimmer is a really nice pinky-violet colour that I feel would like amazing on many skin tones. In the winter I'm quite pale, but I'm able to get significantly more tan in the summer time, and I feel like it will be a lip colour that can transition well from season to season. The finish I found to be quite silky, creamy, and lush. I love this colour!
Dizzy is a very nice pink colour that I feel will go great with any makeup face: smokey eyes or neutral eyes! It has the same type of nice finish that I found with Amethyst Shimmer. It has some really pretty mauvey undertones in it. I think this could very well be my everyday-spring-lip colour winner!
I think I might head back to Shoppers Drug Mart before the sale ends to try a few more colours. It's too bad the Kate Moss lip colours aren't part of the sale!
Have you tried many Rimmel lipsticks? Do you have any recommendations?
Thanks for reading!
