~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!
