Rimmel Colour Rush

11:41

Rimmel Lasting Finish Colour Rush - £5.99, available at Boots and Superdrug

I spent the majority of the summer wearing Revlon's Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Cherish, which is a lovely baby pink colour but decided I needed to change to a darker shade for the winter.  As much as I love the Revlon Balm Stains I wasn't too keen on their darker shades, so after a little browse around the beauty stands I came across Rimmel's own version of the chubby stick balms.  They have a much nicer selection of autumnal shades, and after swatching a few I finally decided on shade 220 Rumour Has It.  It is a nice deep berry pink colour and as it is a balm as opposed to a lipstick I find that it is easier to wear during the daytime without looking too made up.  What I love most about these balm sticks is how moisturising they are on your lips, as I tend to suffer from dry lips especially in the winter, and there's nothing worse than a flaky lip.  When it comes to packaging the Revlon and Rimmel balm stains are almost identical, but the actual product itself is slightly different.  The Rimmel Colour Rush has a slightly glossier finish and texture to it, which I actually find to be more hydrating on the lips.  The Rimmel Colour Rush is also slightly more pigmented than the Revlon Balm Stains, so has a much better colour pay off and definitely lasts a lot longer on the lips.  As the day goes on the sheen does disappear leaving a slight stain on the lips, so if you want an even more subtle lip during the day this is perfect.  If I had to choose between the two I would probably lean more towards the Rimmel Colour Rush due to it's slightly better hydrating quality and longer lasting colour.
