Swatches: Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick in Airy Fairy

I finally got the chance to try out the Rimmel Lasting Finish lipstick which I bought from Watson's not long ago after recovering from recent chapped/dry lip condition.

The first thing about this particular lipstick which caught my attention is the name, Airy Fairy, how pretty? It reminded me of magical pixies with little wings.=)

Initially I thought Airy Fairy would be a somewhat nude shade, but in reality it is actually a frosty pink shade. The formula is very creamy and doesn't look chappy and dry at all even when applied on my lips (Bear in mind tht I have very sensitive lips). I also like how this shade matches my skintone (NC20) since I have pigmented lips and most shade just doesn't look true to its color when applied on my lips. The lasting power is also pretty great. It lasted for about 4 hours before fading slightly after I took my lunch.

I picked up this lipstick while it was on sale at Watson's. It only cost RM17.10 which is a really great deal. I believe that the normal price of the Rimmel Lasting Finish collection is RM19.90 across all local drugstores.

The only thing I dislike about this lipstick is that it has a weird scent to it especially when freshly applied. This is also prolly cos I'm very sensitive to scents.

Overall, I think Airy Fairy is really worth the money if you are searching for a nice pink shade. I think I might go grab another few shades from this collection. Still, I really wish they would make one that is scentless.

Overall Rating: 3.3/5
(Would repurchase! Would also give extra points if it doesn't have tht weird scent)

Anyway, I also tried out the Paul & Joe foundation primer for the very first time today! I'm still not too sure about how I feel about it. But a review will definitely be coming up soon after I tried it long enough. 

Have a great weekend ahead!

XOXO

  10. Locke- I am so gonna haul some NYX lipsticks back. They are the ones that I'm not allergic to. It's funny how I always get allergic to the high end lipsticks.

    Susie- Aww..thanks for being so sweet! I think airy fairy is all good except for the smell...which I totally can't stand much..lol

    Rakhshanda- I was wearing it in picture on this post. Will be doing another better swatch..MY camera sucks..lol

    나니- Thanks babe! =D

  11. Alicia- I think it only looked nice on me in that particular picture..my lip color is weird..sometimes it turns into purple-ish and every color I put on would become weird..

    Cassandra- It took me some time to locate it as well! Apparently gals in my country really like it as well..I was at the drugstore the other day and the SA promoted this color to me as well! =D

    Elle- It looks bad on my on days when my lip color turns purple too! I jus found out the other day! haha

    Mara- I think this is a fairly popular shade for Rimmel. It's always OOS here in the stores too..

  15. Finally, another Asian with NC20 skin! I thought I was the only one with pale skin.
    But yes, I love Rimmel lipsticks - I think they trump the Benefit and MAC ones by far - though I'd really love it if they started putting SPF into thier stuff as well.
    Anyways, lovely blog!
