Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick - Heart Breaker 016

Follow me on Facebook Facebook

We all are on a hunt for a that special lipstick which is a combo of great color, superb formula and long lasting. I found one in Rimmel # 16.

Its a gorgeous dark pink color with a subtle blue undertone. Its a very different shade which is dark enough to catch the attention and bring a pop of color but having said that its not a pink color that looks stark like a Fuschia or washes one out like a powder pink. The color is apt for most Indian skin tone, even wheatish. It also smells yummy. Very fruity unlike many that have this typical cosmetics smell.

Rimmel has one of the best formule of lipsticks that gives any luxury brand a run for money. Check my Rimmel Kate Moss Lipstick Review. The lipstick spreads like a dream. Highly pigmented and last a good 6-7 hours. It may fade on eating and drinking but a light tint stays on the whole day. Can be worn as a tint and blush too.
Packaging is usual, nothing fancy. Kate Moss edition is very well packaged but this is more like the packing of yester years.

Availability is another challenge with Rimmel. Its not easily available

Summing it:

What I like about Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick - Heart Breaker 016:

  • Love the color
  • Great formula
  • Long lasting
  • Well pigmented
  • Smells fruity 

What I don't like about Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick - Heart Breaker 016:

  • Availability
  • Packaging very average

Overall: 4.8/5

Price: Approx INR 275/

Where did I get it from: Parcos

Will I repurchase: I will definitely get a lot of new colors from this range and even from Kate Moss range. They are definitely value for money products.

Recommendation: Rimmel lipstick are my current favourite, not only are they affordable but the quality is very very superior almost to the level of a good luxury cosmetic brand. We need them marketing more extensively into India. Parcos is the only place you get them but not the entire range. Coming to Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick - Heart Breaker 016, its a wonderful dark pink color that will compliment Indian skin tones very well. Girls who are scared to sport a blue undertone pink can boldly sport this color with confidence. Its a good day or night wear. I wear it like a tint, full color or even like a blush.
