REVIEW: Rimmel Fall Lipsticks

Hello friends,
Whenever you are having a lazy day the easiest quick fix would be winged liner and bold lips. Desiring this look, i searched for affordable lipstick to add colour to my normal everyday look.
The two i purchased were the Rimmel 082 Heavenly and the 166 Temptation.
Heavenly: Subtle berry, pink shade. Purple lips are getting a lot of hype this fall so i thought i would try it out!
PROS:
-Its different, and i have nothing like it yet.
-Its a wearable way to follow this season's trend.
-VERY affordable ($3.99 + tax CND)
-Add a pop of colour to a makeup look
-Glides on smoothly and doesnt accent dry lips like many lipsticks tend to do.
CONS:
-A bit too light for my taste.
-Not very flattering for my skin tone
-Smudges on items that touch it; drinking glass, napkins, etc.
TIP! If you dont like a shade of lipstick dont fret and throw it away, mix it with other shades! I like to use a lip liner underneath or add a gloss on top. Be creative. For this berry shade that is too light/bright for me i would add a liner under that is 1-2 shades darker to cancel it out OR i put a pink gloss on top so that the pink stands out rather than the berry purple.

Temptation:Classic bright red lip stick. This would be suitable for a night out or formal/semi formal event!
PROS:
-Flattering, and wearable red lipstick. Its hard to find the right red lip stick for your skin tone so be sure to do A LOT of swatches before purchasing!
-Glides on smoothly and doesnt accent dry lips like many lipsticks tend to do.
-Doesnt require a gloss
-Red lipsticks instantly makes your teeth look extra white :P
CONS:
-Smudges on items that touch it; drinking glass, napkins, etc.

Hope you found this helpful! What lipsticks do you recommend?
Until next time, xox,
Kristi
