Rimmel lipstick in Airy Fairy review

Hi guys,

Here I am with the review of my very first Rimmel lipstick. I ordered this online on as this is a really hyped color and I really wanted to try it out. Seeing that the price tag was nt too bad either I decided to give it a go and bought the color. I was really doubtful going forward with my purchase as the chances were high that the color would wash me out. Anyways I could make it work for me. Read on to know my views about it.

Price:- 215/-

Okay so first of all the price is really great. I mean it is lower than many of the other Indian brand lipsticks we have in the market. You can try out so many colours and still not go broke. The packaging is very cute too with a crown on the top. The bullet shape is fine and is easy to use.

The lipstick claims a long stay. However it is definitely not as high as they claim. It would be somewhat around 4 hours after which it fades and has to be reapplied. Since this color is very light the fading effect is not very prominent. It fades away evenly. 

The colour is something that is not really made for the average Indian skintone. It is a light baby pinik with golden shimmer in it. If you are NC 35 or lighter you could pull this off as a great nude shade but if you are darker then you ll definitely have to try it out in store first before buying it. For very long even I had mixed opinion as to whether it suited me or not. Finally I can say that I can pull it off with matching pink clothes ( if that makes any sense). Anytime I wear something in baby pink I reach out for this shade. The shimmer is not too prominent, it just kind of gives it a sheen.

The texture is okay-ish. Its not too creamy or too dry. It is just very comfortable to use on the lips. I always use a lip balm to prevent any drying of the lips. The fragrance is very sweet, I cannot describe it but it does not bother me. The only lipstick fragrance that has ever bothered me was Lakme Enrich satin range. 

Overall, I think the lipstick is decent for the price it comes at. The color however is something that you need to try out well in all kinds of light to see if it suits you or washes you out. With really heavy makeup this one can be pulled off. You can see the exact shade in my swatches.

The above swatches were taken almost two hours after putting the lipstick on.

1. Inexpensive
2. Lasts a decent time
3. Smooth to apply
4. Does not dry out the lips

1. The color may not suit everyone
2. Availability as of now

My rating:- 4/5

Have a great day tomorrow guys!!
