Rimmel Ombré Lips

Everyday I wear lipstick and I am currently OBSESSED with applying lip liner all of a sudden. If you have read my Blankey Review you will know I am a lover of 'Soar' Mac lipliner however over the Christmas period I wanted to try something more browny. Not having much money to spend on myself over Christmas, I thought why not try some drugstore brands. I have heard so much about Rimmel 1000 Stay Cappuccino whilst watching YouTube beauty bloggers apply their makeup so I thought why not try it for myself.

When browsing a number of high street drugstores to find this lip liner, it seemed to be sold out everywhere. This give me even more determination to find it. Whilst in my local shopping centre, I remembered Wilkinson's sell high street beauty brands. Like Boots and Superdrugs stores, Wilkinson's also have from time to time, 3 for 2 on selected products. As you probably have guessed I got 3 items...who can say NO to that especially when Rimmel products are so cheap.

I decided to get myself and my mam (Christmas present) the Cappuccino lip liner £2.99 and I also went for one of the oh my gloss lip gloss in Cosmic £3.99. I literally haven't used a lip gloss since secondary school so 90's. Like I just mentioned above I have been watching many beauty YouTube videos where makeup artists have been applying this lipliner but also seen many getting on the lipgloss vib lately and Iv thought 'why not give it ago myself'.  

This lipliner is said to be a long wearing lip pencil which stays on your lips comfortably for up to 8 hours. I have to admit if I was to go to work in the morning it would stay on till around dinner time (4 hours) but I would have to then do a little touch up. I have found that when applying the liner to my lips it's very moistursing. Nothing worse than applying a lip liner and it hurting your lips right? The liner is brown/ nude shade (see swatch) I know brown may not be everyone cup of tea but with my brown long locks and my skin tone (NW20) I think it looks perfect especially with a nude lipstick/lipgloss. 

The Oh My Gloss lip gloss in Cosmic is a very nudey/pinky shade (see swatch). When applying the lipgloss to the lips a lot of gloss comes onto the stick so only one dip is needed to cover the whole lip. This lipgloss isn't sticky at all, it's very smooth on your lips and will stay on around 1/2 hours. This is one of the main reasons I love this lipgloss, there is nothing worse than a sticky lipgloss that gets EVERYWHERE. 

I have been wearing the Cappuccino lip liner and Cosmic lipgloss together to make that ombré look. I have been applying the liner to the outside of my lips and also filling them in making sure I leave a little bit of a gap in the middle to apply the lipgloss. I don't know about you but I absolutely LOVE this look and I think the colours work really well together. A number of my friends have commented on my lips lately and they have been really shocked when explaining it's just by using these Rimmel products.  

Have you tried any other Rimmel products? 

Do you enjoy that ombré lip look? 

I would love to hear from you by commenting below.
