Bargain Hunter: Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick in Retro and Lily Extase

In my lame attempt to stop buying so much make up, I instead ended up scouring make up stands, trying to find something under a tenner that would give me some joy.

I ended up stopping on the Rimmel stand – I must rarely talk about Rimmel because I couldn’t even find a tag for it on this blog. D’oh!

Here’s what I purchased!

Rimmel Lasting Finish Vintage Retro 220

Rimmel Moisture Renew Full Bloom in Lily Extase in 340

I loved the look of Retro (lasting finish) a really really hot orange red.

Lilly Extase is a hot pink – lovely and hydrating (or so it looks) with a nice deep purple packaging.

Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick in Retro:

I love this shade! Its completely bright and in your face but fun too. It reminds me of my Chanel Enthusiast Lipstick, which I lost a while ago.

Lip Swatch (sorry, this is turning into a lip swatch blog!):

I also really like the texture of this lippy. Its nice and creamy (lipliner a must) so it might smudge a bit. Love!

Lilly Extase is hot pink – the lipstick is a moisture renew one which I am guessing is extra hydrating. It feels good:

On the lips – its quite a cool toned but really HOT pink. LOVE.

These lipsticks aren’t that cheap. I think they were about £6.99 – £7.99 each. That’s almost £10 each! Grrr

Overall though they are really pretty….will do more counter scouring soon.

Anything else I should be trying from Rimmel? Let me know!
