You know that you are a lipstick junkie when you have two lipstick shades from the same brand that are almost identical. What can you do, they each have a tiny difference that makes it absolutely essential for you to have them both! I have already spoken about the Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick in the shade #122 Stylish on this blog and today I will talk about its lighter twin, the Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick in the shade #046 Metallic Shimmer.
This lipstick is a reddish copper shade with lots of shimmer in it. The formula is creamy, and semi-opaque and stays on the lips for 3-4 hours. In the bullet, and even when swatched, Metallic Shimmer and Stylish look pretty similar. The only difference is that, on the lips, Stylish looks a little more brown/maroon while metallic shimmer looks slightly lighter, with orange undertones.
I wouldn’t say that you absolutely need to buy both the shades but investing in at least one of them would be a good idea. They are both warm-toned colors that will look great on medium Indian skin tones. This is why I love the Rimmel Lasting Finish lipsticks, they come in a ton of colors that are excellent for daily wear, when you need something more than a nude shade.
Priced at INR 275 only, these lipsticks are some of the most affordable ones in the market and they deliver excellent value for money. I would highly recommend checking out the shade Metallic Shimmer, and the range in general, I am sure you will love it too!
Sometimes the nude lip colors can be a bit too pale or brown. There are days when you need your lips to look naturally healthy and have a slightly reddish undertone. The Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick in the shade 122 Stylish will not disappoint you on such occasions.
I am a huge fan of the Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipsticks in general as they are incredibly moisturizing yet stay on the lips for quite some time. This shade is no exception and I do not need to reapply for 3-4 hours. The formula is quite smooth and provides a semi-opaque finish in one swipe. It is a dusty red color with multi-colored shimmer that looks quite subtle on the lips.
I reach for this shade when I do not want a very bold look but don’t want my lips to look pale either. You can get away without a lip balm with this product, provided that you do not have severely chapped lips. It offers mild hydration and has a sweet, coconutty scent.
The best part about this lipstick is that it is priced at only INR 250! I think that the Rimmel lipsticks are quite underrated in India. They offer unmatchable quality for the price and come in a ton of different colors and finishes. Do give this one a try if you are looking for a comfortable to wear, foolproof nude red lipstick.
