Rimmel Show Off Lip Lacquer { first impressions }

Hi Loves!  A couple weeks ago, I received a package from Influenster for winning the Rimmel badge prize.  In it were a few items but the first two I had to play with were the show off lip lacquers in Celestial & Big Bang.  Check out the swatches.

Celestial is like my lips but better.  However, if you look closely, you can see its a little patchy.  Two coats was perfect.  It applies super smooth and feels really luxurious.  I think this would be an excellent every day color.  After about ten minutes it did feel like it was drying a little but nothing that a clear gloss or balm wouldn’t fix.

Big Bang is my first ever red.  I like it but I’m still intimidated by it because its so much brighter than anything I wear!  It also has a slightly blue undertone which works better for my fair skin and coloring than one with a warm undertone.  I feel like this would be the perfect red to rock with a vintage inspired look.  However – it stains and I think I’d wear a lip liner after playing around with it – it did bleed and also stained my finger red when I was attempting to clean it up a little!

Bottom Line – I really like the feel of these and they definitely have color pay off!   Both swatches are with one light coat so you could see how the consistency is.  It also has a doe foot applicator that has a hole in it to hold extra product as you’re putting it on.  I’m going to check out their other colors next time I see it in a store.

Have you tried these?  What do you think of them?

Thanks for stopping by Gracious Luck!

  1. I’ve never tried these products before but it looks like it gives you a nice shine and provides moisture. I personally love the Big Bang but it is quite dramatic. Have you tried applying the Celestial on top of the Big Bang? Maybe it will tone it down a bit? Great review and gorgeous lips! ❤

  2. I’ve never tried these but I’ve heard so many good things about them! I love the Celestial colour! The red looks like it really suits your skin tone, I think you should go for it!
