Lipstick Swatch Spam with Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipsticks

 Ahh! I'm so excited! I took my first exam in my Chemistry class and I was super nervous about.  I'm one of those lucky people who rarely has to study because for some reason when it comes to school I have a good memory.  Outside of school stuff my memory is terrible.  Like I can't remember people's names for crap.  but I actually had to study for this exam.  It turns out I only missed one question and make a 96, woohoo!  Being smart is pretty much the only thing I have going for me because I'm extremely bland and boring, haha.  Sorry, I just had to share that because I was proud of myself for doing well!

Okay, this post barely qualifies as swatch spam because I only have 4 lipsticks to swatch, but this is all I have.  I'm not particularly fond of Rimmel lipsticks, but I buy them when they are on sale and I have coupons.  First of all, I hate the scent.  To me it smells like a spray disinfectant used in nursing homes or day cares.  It has an overwhelming sickly sweet powdery fruit smell with an undercurrent of chemical goodness.  Yech, not for me. I asked my boyfriend and he said they didn't smell gross, but I don't trust his sense of smell.  He can never smell anything. Luckily on my two older lipsticks the smell has faded a bit and once on my lips the smell fades pretty quickly.

As for the formula, it is pretty good.  I don't think I would pay full price for these, but I never pay full price for drugstore makeup anyway, unless it is something I REALLY have to have, like a limited edition item or something.  I used to not like the formula of these just because I didn't like lipstick, but now I like it.  It's creamy, pigmented and non-streaky or drying.

 The lipsticks with the silver band around the middle are the newer style tubes.  They're a little bit taller and I guess fancier. I dunno, I don't care much about packaging.  As long as it's functional I'm happy.

These lipsticks are only like 5 or 6 bucks and I bought mine a few on mine while Rimmel was having a 40% off sale at a drugstore (Walgreens I think) and I had some coupons.  So they were worth the few dollars I paid.

Thank you for reading and have a great day/night/whatever!
