Rimmel London Stay Matte Liquid Lips

Hey guys so I have to admit that I had so much fun playing around with these lippies. Lipstick is my life so when I saw these in the mail I was super excited to try them out. One huge thing that I noticed at first glance was that these were liquid lipsticks, which I usually stay clear of but… read on to see how my relationship with the Rimmel London Stay Matte Lips developed.

This is not really a down side but you need to make sure that you apply a highly moisturising lip balm as a base before applying the lippie because it can dry your lips out and lead to flaking and cracks showing up on your lips. To be 100% clear when I say cracks here I don’t mean your lips cracking I just mean the lipstick coverage is minimised and it starts to look a bit cakey.

So after going wild with swatches and trying out all the lippies I have to elaborate more on the 12-hour coverage. This is not just another one of those marketing gimmicks, I tried this out and trust me, it’s true. I tried it twice already and both times Rimmel London Stay Matte Liquid Lips came out on top!

The first trial was an application at 7:30 in the morning just before work and this is how my day progressed:

-at 8:30 I had my morning coffee

-2 hours later had a glass of water and tea

-2 hours later I had a wrap for lunch and a glass of water

-1 hour later I had another cup of tea (I love my tea don’t judge me!)

-2 hours later another cup of coffee

I came home and took a short clip that you will see inserted in the video below!

Rimmel London Stay Matte Liquid Lips is probably the only liquid lipstick I’ll be using in the near future. Another amazing thing about this lippie is when you go out for the evening you don’t need to stress about re-applying after every drink coz it will last. Okay I think you guys get it now!

Lastly, I want to share my favourite Rimmel London Stay Matte Liquid Lip colours with you and also show the all the chocolate ladies the perfect lippies for dark skin within this range.
