Ah yes, liquid lipsticks… as much as try other formulas of lipsticks, I always go back to my tried and true formula.
I’ve been a fan of Rimmel London’s Stay Matte liquid lip colours since they came out last year, so you can imagine my excitement when a giant box came in the mail with 14 new shades (plus a drawn photo of myself – hey, I would totally be down to be a Rimmel London spokesperson).
Now these aren’t just any old shades, all 14 of them run the gamut of different coloured nudes. Since you guys know I love nudes and baby pinks, I was tickled with excitement over the expanded shade range in here since a) there’s seven new pale nude shades to play with, and b) if nude-nude isn’t your thing, then you’ll love the darker shades in here. Long story short, there is literally a nude for every skin tone.
In case you aren’t familiar with the formula, these liquid lipsticks give you high-intensity colour with a velvet matte finish. You get bold colour in one stroke which is kiss-proof, touch-proof, and waterproof. They do stay on for quite some time, however, they aren’t as hard to remove as other liquid lipsticks I have tried (Kylie Cosmetics), which could be both a good and bad thing.
I swatched all 14 shades and with this many nudes it’s hard choosing a favourite. When it comes to the darker colours, I do recommend making sure your lips are completely dry before applying this product. I found the formula to be a bit patchy the first time I tried it out with their original colour range, however, for this time around, I set my lips with powder before putting on the colour and noticed that it evened the colour out.
I have to say, I much prefer this shade range to the original since you get so many wearable colours in here. I find the formula to be relatively comfortable, as I can wear this for at least seven hours before the urge to nourish my lips with a lip balm sets in.
Not sure when these are officially launching as they aren’t on the Rimmel London Canada site just yet, but keep a look out at your local drugstore for these to pop up because you’re going to definitely want to pick up a few.
What colour are you most excited to try from the new Stay Matte Liquid Lip Colour range?
Please note, I was sent this product from PR. All opinions are my own.
