After trying out my first lip liner in the summer of last year, I have been obsessed with Rimmel’s range of lip liners ever since. I never really saw the appeal before then but now that I’ve been converted, I love everything they can achieve. Lip liners are great for prolonging the wear of lipstick and preventing the colour from bleeding or feathering and also for wearing all over the lips for long lasting gorgeous colour. Rimmel’s offerings consist of two ‘types’ of lip liners – The ‘Exaggerate’ lip liner & The ‘1000 Kisses’ lip liner.
Rimmel Exaggerate Automatic Lip Liner in East End Snob | £3.99
This is my absolute favourite and the one that kicked off my love for lip liners. East End snob is a gorgeous dusty pink which makes for the perfect nude lip. The benefit of the Exaggerate Automatic Lip Liner is that you will never need to sharpen it and it’s slanted tip makes application so much easier than the traditional pencil. The only thing I recommend is not to be too heavy handed as it is prone to snapping, I did waste a lot of my first liner because it snapped so much, that is the only downside to this liner. The Exaggerate liner has a very soft formula and glides onto the lips so easily (again thanks to it’s slanted tip also), is very comfortable to wear and will not budge for hours. I love to wear MAC Creme Cup on top! I have written a more in-depth review previously, you can read that here.
Other shades from the Exaggerate range that I need: Red Diva, Berry & Pink Rose.
Rimmel Lasting Finish 1000 Kisses Lip Liner in Indian Pink | £2.99
The 1000 Kisses Lip Liner is much more of a traditional liner in that it’s pencil. Unfortunately compared to the Exaggerate liner it’s more difficult to work with, it definitely does not glide on easily and you need to be more careful and precise when lining the lips, I find. However, I still love it as it has intense pigmentation and once on the lips is super comfortable and long lasting, I love to wear this all over the lips. Indian Pink is a gorgeous deep fuchsia shade, I would probably consider it the ‘perfect pink’ It really is beautiful.
Now I just need to get my hands on Spice & Black Tulip.
