So I finally sat down and did a full face. I haven’t done more than a quick face since the move. Definitely nothing photo-worthy. But I’ve got lots of goodies to try out and photograph so I sat down and whipped out all of the new items. They took over my entire desk! So I’m going to have to spread these out over the next few weeks. Hopefully I can make my way through everything by next month.

First up is Rimmel London’s new Stay Matte Liquid Lip Colour shades. There are 14 shades total. Rimmel claims bold matte lips in one swipe with up to 12 hours of kiss-proof, water-proof, and touch-proof wear. Here are my thoughts!

I like the packaging. It’s a swirly, triangle, frosted, matte tube. The applicator is a bit longer and flatter than other liquid lipsticks. But it still made for an easy application. Scent wise it smells a little like vanilla, but maybe a more chemical vanilla scent. I didn’t find it to be bothersome and it does go away after application. The texture is thick and kind of moussey. I feel like because of that it does take a while to fully dry down, but it does dry down. Once fully dry they do make for a comfortable wear. I’d say it was fairly lightweight. I didn’t experience any excessive drying and for the most part it was transferproof. Of course that depends on what you eat. I’d stay away from anything greasy. But that’s with any liquid lipstick. And you’re definitely going to want to prep those lips beforehand! Because these babies do not play nice with dry or chapped lips. Some liquid lipsticks are forgiving, but these definitely aren’t. I can’t say much about the 12 hour claim, but the shades I tried did last well throughout the day. Which for me is about 8 hours.

I really love the color selection. I love how they included a black, blue, and gray. However, these shades don’t really apply fully opaque. I found them to be muted and not as bold as they should have been. I think if someone opts for a beautiful bold like Shadow, they’re expecting a nice, rich, bold, gray shade. Not a watered down version of it. That being said I do still like Shadow. Obviously it’s so not my shade! But it was really fun to experiment with and it could be a nice introduction for someone wanting to try a fun, bold shade without breaking the bank.

Some of the darker shades like Midnight, Pitch Black, and Blue Iris do apply patchy. I tried my best to smooth them over, but it just wasn’t happening. Plum This Show can be worked with and is actually quite beautiful with a little extra work. I think the nudes are the real winners in this selection. With the exception of Latte To Go. This one applied very streaky and wouldn’t even out. It just made for a very bad look. My favorites are Fire Starter, Heartbeat, Pink Blink, Blush, Pink Bliss, Rose & Shine, and Be My Baby. I’m going to add Shadow to this list as well. Like I said, it’s definitely not my shade, but I’m still digging it.

Overall, I think it’s a really nice selection of shades. There’s definitely something for everyone. However, if you really have your heart set on the bolder shades, you might be disappointed. These lipsticks are Ulta.com exclusives and are $5.79 each. You can see a few shades in action below!

  1. I am so over liquid lipsticks! LOL! I swear I never thought the say would come but I have been wearing only normal lipsticks these days.

  2. It’s a bit of a bummer that some of the darker shades like Midnight were patchy, but they’re certainly all very pretty! Rose and Shine looks great on you.

    • Thank you, Chris! It is! I would have liked to make some of them work. Like Midnight! It’s such a pretty shade!

  3. You look fab – love the waves! I grew up on Rimmel make-up so it has a special place in my heart :-)

    • Thank you, Becca! I know what you mean. I feel the same about Wet n Wild. It was the first lipstick I ever bought! :)

  4. shades are no doubt super gorgeous…i like mousse finish.. i prep my lips beforehand so I guess i definitely need few of these in my vanity..such pretty things..

  5. I love the tube, it looks really pretty. But I could tell from the swatches that the darker shades looked patchy and not fully opaque. The last set of swatches is beautiful though, they did the rosy MLBB shades really well!

    • Yes! The last set are too pretty! I really do think the nudes are the real winners here. Fire Starter and Heartbeat too. I wish the other darker shades were as even as they were.

  6. Loving the color selections!! :)
