UPDATE: Full review, face photos and more swatches here >
This post wasn't supposed to happen, but made it! Hasn't even ticked Sunday midnight yet, so ya. A bit late, but will do.
I dropped down to Priceline today to see what sales were happening. No good sales, but I spotted new products by Rimmel! Yeap! They've launched their Provocalips range ($17.95/8 shades).
I've been so out of the beauty blogging community, but I believe that we're not too late on these?!
I'm usually not into these 2-ended products, especially when it comes with balms, or glosses to top off the lip colours. Mainly because they look tacky and don't work. However, I was really impressed with the staying power when I swatched these!
These are described to be kiss-proof, transfer proof and food proof... and it did seem that way. When I swatched these at Priceline, they took about 5 minutes to dry down to a semi-matte finish (still had a slight visible sheen).
(Grainy as hell, but I wanted to show you what it looks like when freshly applied)
Although it was only my arm, the weather was damn hot and I was outside being a sweaty gardener in the sun. Yet these stood on, and they also stood on in the shower. I was really worried, because I actually got a body scrub to scrub over it and it didn't budge (⊙…⊙ )
(1st-5th) Dare to Pink, I'll Call You, Little Minx, Play With Fire, Skinny Dip
(All 6) Little Minx, Play with Fire, Skinny Dip, Make Your Move, Kiss Me You Fool, Kiss Fatal
It did eventually come off with an oil-based make-up remover though (as claimed by Rimmel), so twas' all good.
I'm egg-cited to see how everyone will love these!
Which shade(s) do you like more?!
My top pick here is Dare To Pink! The rest are shades I already have in my collection, hehe.
