Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Lip Colour review

I'm a sucker for a liquid lipstick as it seems most beauty lovers are these days so when Rimmel launched a whole new range of £5.99 matte ones I just had to give them a go for myself.

First off I will say I struggled to pick out a couple of shades as they all looked fab, there were nudes (I have my eye on Mocha next!), reds, pinks, blue and even greys thrown in for good measure so you will be sure to find a shade that suits you. In the end I went for Pink Blink and Be My Baby, two 'me' shades.

Pink Blink is a pink toned nude but I like this because there is an element of brightness to it, it really makes my lips pop when I have it on and I think its a nice option for the summer. Be My Baby is another shade that I think is great for this time of the year and my favourite of the two, it's a gorgeous peachy toned nude and I've been loving wearing it with a terracotta eye look.

Wearing Be My Baby

I'm always a little apprehensive about trying out new matte formulas as lets face it, some of them aren't comfortable and dry the hell out of your lips within minutes. Luckily, I didn't have that problem at all with these. I found they felt lightweight to apply but I would say they took a little work to get them appearing nice and even but not to the point where it put me off them. I tested these out for four days in a row and found each day that they lasted well, after my lunch I needed to reapply on the corners but this happens with numerous lip products I own. I liked that when I did need to reapply they layered nicely and didn't drag off the first layer, I hate when that happens.

Overall I didn't find these to be drying or uncomfortable at all and have been enjoying wearing them a lot. Like I said I already have my beady eye on Mocha but I'm sure there will be others in the range I end up getting too.

If you've picked up any of these let me know what you think in the comments!
