LOTD: Rimmel Heather Shimmer...

Just for a change I thought I'd post an LOTD where I WASN'T trying to change the colour of the lipstick using a lipliner or gloss (yes, it does happen from time to time lol). All I wanted to do was enhance this delightful lipstick shade with a super glossy finish...


So...I laid down a base of Rimmel 1000 Kisses Lip liner in Wild Clover...


Over that went Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick in Heather Shimmer. I popped into Chemist Warehouse on the weekend to see what I could grab from their 50% off sale, and scored this gorgeous lippie for $4.25. Such a great shade for the cooler months - quite a few notches up from "natural", but not too red, and with just enough punch to give my lips some much needed definition. I actually had this shade in my kit a few years ago, but thought it was a bit ho-hum so I tossed it out, but I'm very happy to rediscover it now, and especially for half price! It lasts pretty well, and has ample moisturising power...


How chuffed I was to discover that my essence XXXL Nudes gloss in Nude Kiss was a very close match, and gave the lipstick the extra slick of shine I was after...


And here's the face I wore that day - same day as my teal vamp EOTD. The not-so-out-there lip colour helped balance out the intensity of the eye make up...


Have you ever fallen in love with a lipstick the second time around?

Take care of you,

  3. Heather Shimmer was actually one of the first lipsticks I bought when I was getting more into makeup, I have fond memories of it! It looks fabulous on you, and I love the extra sparkle the gloss adds to it! Gotta love how cheap Rimmel lippies are...when they go on sale, there's no excuse not to pick up a few ;)

    1. How about that Sarah? Amazing when you think of how many thousands of lipstick shades there are out there :-) When I was a teenager Rimmel lipsticks were the only ones I could afford, and they're still great value ♡
