Hello lovelies, on Friday I finished up with my Best of 2013 series so I thought now would be a good time to share my view on one of my absolute favourite lip products of all of 2013.
Yes, it was shown in my Best of 2013 favourite lip products post(which you can read here) but I thought the Rimmel Colour Rush Balm deserved a more in depth review.
Rimmel Colour Rush Balm in 'Give me a Cuddle' | Boots
When I was in Boots a few months ago I was on a little shopping spree(when I say little I mean big,oops!) and seen the Rimmel Colour Rush Balms out of the corner of my eye.
There were many other shades there but 'Give me a Cuddle' was the one that caught my eye the most, along with 'Drive me Nude'.
As you know I am a pink lover so it is really hardly surprising that I was immediately drawn to it.
I picked it up and swatched it, I was in awe, I immediately popped it into my basket and walked to the till to pay.
'Give me a Cuddle' is a pinky/peachy shade which looks absolutely stunning! I imagine it would suit all skin tones, if it suits a pale/faired skin girl like me it can suit anyone, surely.
It is great for day wear, if you're having a bite to eat the colour will fade a little but not too much, it's almost like a lip stain, it lasts quite a long time.
The pigmentation is great, although the swatch above doesn't do it much justice, it is highly pigmented and a lovely colour.
The formulation is just perfect, it's not sticky like some lip balms, it's incredibly creamy and moisturising.
Personally there is nothing worse than a sticky lip balm, eurgh, so I was glad that wasn't the case with this.
I have to admit though, the first thing that I noticed and love about the Colour Rush Balm is the smell, it has a vanilla scent which is sooo gorgeous, it's incredibly similar to the mac lipstick scent but it's slightly stronger.
The packaging is great, it is a similar colour to the balm inside which is so lovely.
You can also wind the lip balm up and down from the bottom which is helpful if you seem to be running low on product.
Overall, I absolutely love this lip balm! This really deserves a lot of hype in the beauty community, it's the best discovery I made last year.
