Rimmel Provocalips: Everything proof lipstick!

 Rimmel Provocalips in ‘Kiss Me You Fool’; ‘Play With Fire’; 
‘Little Minx’; ‘Dare To Pink’, £6.99 each.

 I think I’ve found my perfect lipstick… It’s life-proof. And you can buy it on the high street… Ladies and gents, this is wear proof, kiss proof, food proof, coffee cup proof… Lipstick overs REJOICE. Thank you, Rimmel, thank you lipstick gods. Introducing Provocalips, which launched last week. I’ve been itching to get my mitts on these and they’ve exceeded every expectation I had. It’s an intensely pigmented liquid lipstick on one end that finishes matte then a gloss on the other end to add shine and prolong wear. These will last all day and all night without the need to touch up or fix the smudges.

I have four of the six shades available. The other few shades were brown-nudes and didn’t really appeal to my bright side, so I went for a bright red, raspberry pink, a deep wine red and a pale pink. ‘Kiss Me You Fool’ is pretty much your classic pillar box red. There’s no bleeding with the colour, so you can keep the slick red lip for longer. ‘Little Minx’ is a bright raspberry pink that has a blue undertone so should suit most. ‘Play With Fire’ is a deep wine red, similar to the matte Kate Moss lipstick in 107 that so many people loved! Again, no colour bleeding or transferring – your coffee cup is safe! Finally something a little more subtle is ‘Dare To Pink’, a warm neutral pink. This one looks best with the gloss on top, its the only colour out of these four that you can see creasing a little. I found just keeping it topped up with gloss prolonged wear and made my lips look a little more alive! 
The formula isn’t drying at all and because the wear is so good, if your lips do feel a little dry you can add a bit of balm on top. To get the best results, I outline my lips with the end of the applicator then fill in. After it’s dried, I pop the gloss on top or skip that if I’m going for a full on matte lip. I carry one around with me but don’t need to top it up at all!

(L-R) ‘Kiss Me You Fool’; ‘Play With Fire’;
‘Little Minx’; ‘Dare To Pink’.

I’ve included swatches of these one so you can see how wonderfully intense the colours are. They are all without the gloss on top except for ‘Dare To Pink’ so you can see the intensity of the colour! I cannot emphasise enough how amazing the wear time on these lipsticks are – it’s insane! It exceeds six hours, and I’m not ashamed to say I woke up after a night out and my lipstick still looked perfect in the morning….
