I was enticed by the cute purple packaging to try these lipsticks out. I grabbed Rose Blush, which is a lovely MLBB shade. The name accurately describes the shade-its a dark, dusty rosy pink. It feels like a dream going on: opaque, smooth, no settling in lip lines or bunching.
However, this happened to actually be drying on my lips by the time the product wore off-which was only after 3 hours! It had already faded after one and was stainlike by the 2nd. The lipstick completely vanished by hour 3. However, it faded evenly.
And while the packaging is, in my eyes, cute, it feels very light and cheap in my hand. I fear that this may be crushed easily if one were to travel with it, or cracked/broken if it were to accidentally drop.

Rimmel has done a wonderful job with this formula and particular color. It is a gorgeous rose bubblegum pink with a healthy shine. There is a great amount of moisture within the formula especially for a drugstore lipstick. The packaging is unique and has a beautiful retro feel. Overall this is one of my favorite drugstore lipstick formulas and I cannot wait to try other colors out!
