Rimmel Show Off 101 Lipstick Swatch

Ah, the impulsive purchase of a red lipstick. Never gets old.

I am starting to become a huge fan of Rimmel London (their mascara and their Stay Matte foundation are two of my faves), so I had to pick this color up.  I can’t ever have enough red lip colors.  Red is just super flattering on everyone (find YOUR RED).  These lip lacquers are like liquid lipsticks, they have huge color payoff although they don’t stay on as long as a Bite Beauty liquid lip color.  But for about $5 dollars these are really good to throw in your purse and head out although you might have to reapply a few times throughout the day.

It’s a hybrid gloss (it’s not matte, it’s shiny and the formula is slightly moisturizing) and it’s part lipstick in the extreme color pay off.  Again, don’t buy this for length of wear (it will disappoint in that end).  It also has a slight scent that I can’t put my finger on.  Can’t say I love it, but I don’t mind it either.

Another interesting thing about this lacquer is the lip brush,  the brush has an indent in it that scoops up color and deposits it on the lips evenly without having to dip the brush in the bottle over and over again.  The cool thing about this lip color is that you can also dab some on your finger and lightly pat it in for a “stained look.”
