I have been longing to own at least one lipstick from Rimmel after I used two of their mascaras and a Face Powder. But unfortunately, it doesn't retail anywhere near where I stay and the only website that stocked it did not have any left by the time I had made up my mind. But, for all you girls staying in Delhi/NCR, there's a Rimmel Counter at Parcos in the T1 Terminal at the IGI Airport and when my hubby went on a business trip last month, I couldn't help but ask him to pick up a lipstick for me. (Well!! the number of phone calls that were made and my frantic Google search during those 15 mins that he had for shopping are another story!!)..Anyway, I finally decided on this shade from the Color Show Off lipsticks range(since I'm a sucker for hot pinks!!), and have been wearing it very often since then and here's my review on it..........

My take on the Product
Rimmel London Color Show Off Lipstick (INR 415 for 4g) Shocking Pink is a Vibrant Hot Pink with cool undertones and leans a little red on my lips. It is creamy to apply and it sets down to a soft matte finish within a few minutes of application. It is extremely well pigmented and goes opaque in a single coat. As is the case with most matte lipsticks, it needs well exfoliated and moisturized lips to look it's best. The lipstick has a slight watermelon-y fragrance which I don't really like but then it disappears after a while so it is alright by me.
The best part about this lipstick is the Lasting Ability. I get a full 4+ hrs of stay with light snacks and water and even after that it leaves a beautiful tint on the lips. It fades evenly without flaking or feathering and you don't necessarily need a lip liner with it. The best application would be with a lip brush since its so darn pigmented. Personally, I think I can wear this lipstick any day or anytime, however , for those of you who find it a bit intimidating to wear such bright colors during the day may like to keep it restricted to evening wear.

Also, the packaging is really pretty too, Metallic Pink casing with a silver tub holding the lipstick bullet.
I'm really loving the lipstick these days, and would love to try more shades. The texture, staying power and the Oh!so! Gorgeous Color makes it a complete winner for me...
Hope you enjoyed reading the review. Have you tried these lipsticks?? What shades would you recommend??
Have a great day all!!
