(Rimmel London Colour Rush Balm - Give Me A Cuddle via Boots £5.99)
Hey lovelies, so here's another beauty item review (or at least an attempt at it, it's only my 2nd so bare with me as I try and get better at it :D) of another lip-related item and for this one it's Rimmel London's Color Rush balm.
If you have been following my blog or have been watching my videos then you would know that I love giving lip statements and so I wanted to try a new lip item. So the Rimmel balms look like the Bourjois colour boost I know but behold, they may look the same but they are very different.
First of all, the Rimmel balm is what it says is it: a balm. Therefore giving the effect of what a balm should give just a smooth, soft and hydrating feel to the lips with it's cherry on top: a variety of colours. I actually only got this colour from the range although they have 7 colours within the line all of which have specially curious yet curious in a good-kinda-way names like this one 'Give Me A Cuddle' and other rather quite strange but uniquely genius and strange at the same time like: 'Drive Me Nude'. 'Not An Illusion', etc. etc.
I would like to find out who came up with the names for these balms and find out his/her inspiration for them or whether they were just being rather playful and random :)
Anyway, back to the balm, it is soft on the lips. It doesn't dry it out and also doesn't dry out on the lips even after a few hours. The colour does stay on for long with just a few touch ups here and then to give that freshly puckered up look.
The product retails for £5.99 which makes it cheaper than Colour Boost or any other item alike, which I think is fair as it is after all a balm. It is definitely worth that price as well for the effect and finish touch it gives to your look.
So I definitely recommend this product and definitely going to try out the other colours too. Only thing about the line is I wish there were more colours, 7 is a good number but I wish there was a coral or orange of some sort in there but nonetheless, it's still a good buy :)
Let me know your thoughts if you've tried the item or will try it :) xo
