I've always opted for nudes and light pink lipsticks but until recently I've developed a fondness for bright lips. The Rimmel Color Show Off Lipstick in 'Shocking Pink' is one such bright color that can knock your socks off!
100% pure color intensity. Velvety-soft finish. Long-lasting.
Shiny hot pink plastic packaging with the Rimmel crown embossed on the top of the cap. Frankly speaking the packaging feels kind of tacky and not sturdy enough, especially the cap!
Review and Swatches:
As I mentioned before in my July Favorites post, I was looking for another lipstick by Maybelline when I came across this and was totally blown away by the swatch; so it was definitely love at first sight!
The color is an intense shocking pink and a rich color appears on the first swipe, and gives good coverage. You can go off your rocker with the color as you wish and build it up to your heart's content.
It's really light weight on my lips and the formula is a balanced matte, it won't dry out your lips because it didn't dry out mine and I have dry, flaky lips but I suggest people with very dry chapped lips should moisturize with a lip balm first.
I found the texture smooth and it glides easily on my lips. The staying power is quite long; about 5 hours on me and leaves behind a stain even after eating and drinking. The only downside that I found is that the color tends to settle into the fine lines on the lips after the intensity fades a bit.
Has a scent that may be off-putting for some of you but it didn't bother me much because I feel it vanishes after application.
Very happy with this purchase and would definitely check out the other colors in the range like Shake-Up pink and Kiss me.
A lip swatch without moisturizing my lips!
