One key trend that is ALL OVER the beauty scene this winter is the dark red lip, or burgundy lip. Usually more of a nudey – pinky lip person, this is quite bold but looks great as part of a winter make up look.
I know that brands like Nars, Mac and Charlotte Tilbury really rule the roost when it comes to matte style bold lips, but I have also heard great things about the Rimmel bold lipsticks. I thought I’d give Rimmel a go, and also try a lip liner of a similar colour to really do it properly.
The shade I chose is ‘Starry Eyed’ in the Lasting Finish range, matching this with the 1000 Kisses ‘Black Tulip’ lip liner:
- Keep the rest of your make up toned down (I tend to leave blusher and just use bronzer to make sure it’s not too full on)
- Moisturise your lips to make sure the colour lasts the longest
- Make sure your lip liner is sharpened!
- Slowly build up the colour rather than apply thickly
The lip liner is great, (smells just like Crayola though which I’m not too sure about) and really helps you when you apply the actual lip colour.
The lip stick itself is a good texture, not too matte but is really pigmented. Be careful when you first apply it though or you could end up looking like Ronald McDonald. Not a good look.
