Rimmel London Show Off Lip Velvet

~Weekly Product Highlight~Rimmel London Show Off Lip Velvet liquid lipstick~

Overall I am usually not a huge fan of liquid lipsticks.  While the color pay off and lasting power is usually great, I don’t like for my lips to feel dry and uncomfortable.

I personally would not have bought this Rimmel London Show Off Lip Velvet liquid lipstick for myself, but I received it in a Walmart beauty box* As far as I know, in the US, this specific Rimmel London Show Off Lip Velvet is only sold at Walmart and Walmart.com.  I haven’t seen it anywhere else.

*Side note: That is one of the things that I like the most about beauty boxes.  Often I get items in them that I would not purchase on my own, yet I end up really enjoying them.

At first, since I don’t like liquid lipsticks, I was hesitant to even try this out.  I was considering just passing it along to someone else, but then for some reason, I decided to swatch it and I really like the color.   I have the shade 307 Meteoric Matte.  The packaging is super cute as well. One of the things that I really like about the design of it is the doe ft applicator has a little divot in.  Such a simple thing that makes a big difference.  Just enough product collects in the little divot to cover my entire lips.

Unfortunately, my husband is not a huge fan of these darker/deeper/brighter shades of lipstick on me, so I don’t wear them too often.  I will definitely recommend that if you are trying to decide on a liquid lipstick and whether or not to try out this  Rimmel London Show Off Lip Velvet liquid lipstick, I say at around $5 it is a good one to buy!

I have worn this “lip velvet” several times now and so far have enjoy it.  I wouldn’t really call it a true matte, and it never completely dries down.  Both of those things don’t bother me since I personally don’t like the look or feel of matte lipsticks on me.  While even at around 4 hours later the color still transfers, overall the color also lasts around 6 hours.  I don’t know about other shades, but this one in particular wears off for the most part evenly. Does it look great at the 6 hour mark, no, not great, but it also doesn’t look terrible either.  It didn’t look too bad after eating while I was wearing it either.

I didn’t find that it feathers or runs, even without a lipliner. I have to be a bit careful when I first apply to not get any on my teeth or the outside of my lips because it will stain the surrounding skin.  I feel as if this particular shade would look great all all skin tones and colors.  Added bonus this shade makes my teeth look super white!

  1. The colour looks great on you! My SO doesn’t like darker lip colours on me either – I myself feel self-conscious wearing bold colour on my lips so I wear them sparingly.
