I know right, not another chubby stick lip crayon - but you know what these are seriously some of my favourite lip products, they are fool proof to apply and considering the high street have an amazing line up - they are affordable too. I've got tonnes of the Revlon Just Bitten and a few of the Bourjois Colour Boost - so let's see how the new Rimmel Colour Rush Balm in the shades The Redder The Better and Give Me A Cuddle fares...
In terms of longevity it's around the same as the Revlon Just Bitten range - I suppose all depending on what you're doing (don't go down the gutter, I mean eating, drinking etc,) but they do last for a few hours before wearing off, so you can either top it up with a normal lip balm or just reapply the colour.
Upon first application, they aren't that bright - which is actually great, surprisingly. You can build it up (as I have in the swatch above and I do apologise for the lighting,) to go bright or just do the one light application and not be paranoid that it's over kill - these would also be great for people who don't like wearing a bright lip - it could be a great way of easing into it, so to speak.
These aren't super glossy, but perhaps sit quite comfortably between the Revlon Just Bitten range and the Colour Boost range - not overly glossy, but a pretty sheen to it none the less.
Did I need another lip crayon? No, but I'm pretty glad I bought them and I'll probably pick up another shade eventually as they are all so wearable. Definitely worth a swatch or three when your in Boots or Superdrug next.
Have you tried the Rimmel Colour Rush Balms?
