If you love wearing red lipsticks an lip glosses, or would like to this New Year's Eve, then check out these affordable beauties from RIMMEL London.
RIMMEL LONDON Oh My Gloss Lip Gloss in Rebel Red ($5.40 from TargetKMart and Walgreens): Their Oh My Gloss! Lip glosses were made with me in mind: the colors are gorgeous and highly saturated, they contain the perfect amount of shimmer and shine, and have a lightweight, non-sticky texture. Furthermore, they are very comfortable on the lips, and they are lightly moisturizing. The doe-foot applicator applies the gloss evenly, and it neither migrates, nor does it bleed into lip lines. I get a few hours of wear-time per application, and repeated application throughout the day does not result in drying out my lips.  It has a light semi-floral scent that is not heavily perfumed, and the scent fades soon upon application.

According to RIMMEL LONDON,

...Non sticky, lightweight formula that provides a cushion soft feel giving true colour and high shine that lasts up to 6 hours. Lip loving formula with Argan Oil and Vitamin E.

Up to 6 hours of colour, shine, comfort and moisture for your lips.
Lip Loving gloss with Argan Oil and Vitamin E.
Featuring Rimmel’s ‘Gloss Lock’ technology, which delivers an elevated, long-lasting 3-dimensional shine.
Non-sticky, lightweight and comfortable to wear.

RIMMEL LONDON Lasting Finish Lipstick by Kate in Muse Red and Idol Red ($5.49 from Target, Ulta and Walmart): RIMMEL LONDON claims that you will get 8 hours of wear out of these lipsticks, but as an avid water and coffee drinker I don't experience that level of longevity. There is also a sheen to these pretty lipsticks that means that there is more transfer to my cup as I sip my water and coffee throughout the day. I will say that the formula feels fantastic and hydrating on my lips, and it boasts excellent pigmentation in a single pass. 

These lipsticks have the same fruity scent that Rimmel London Lipsticks are known for, and while I don't find it overpowering– people who prefer fragrance-free lipsticks may want to smell them first to see if it is too much for them.

According to RIMMEL LONDON.

Lasting Finish Lipstick by Rimmel London locks colour to lips for up to 8 hours wear. 50% more colour. Soft, smooth, comfortable formula.

RIMMEL LONDON Lipstick Lips The Only 1 in Best of the Best, Under My Spell, One-Of-A-Kind and Oh-So-Wicked ($6.99 from Target, Ulta and Walmart): These are absolutely stunning long-lasting moisturizing lipsticks that have a gorgeous sheen, and are ultra-comfortable on the lips. They are deeply saturated and are available is a nice selection of stunning colors. These lipsticks have a fruity floral scent that differs from their regular lipsticks, but I do find that it fades after a while.

  1. I agree with you, Helen, Rimmel has the best red lipsticks of all types and forms. I still have a bright red opaque gloss with a brush applicator from a couple of years ago that I probably should toss but I still love it. I need to pick up one of these beauties

    1. They really do, and they are so affordable without compromising quality! Plus, some people only wear red lipsticks for very spacial occasions, and when that is the case it certainly makes more sense to buy something affordable like these beauties, rather than spending $50.00+ on a luxury brand!

  2. I'm wearing Rimmel foundation today and was thinking about their other products when I decided to use it. This array of lip colors is great for red lovers.

    1. Their foundation is amazing! They make so many exceptional products, and are one of my all-time favorite drugstore brands!

  3. I love Rimmel, it's not often talked about I feel, but I think they are one of the best at the drugstore!

    1. I love them too! I agree, they are definitely one of my very favorite drugstore brands!

  4. The Rimmel beauty aisles here in HI don't carry the entire line, or maybe I wasn't really paying attention. I love a good red lipstick!

    1. Their red lipsticks are AMAZING! I hope that you can find a more complete display of their products somewhere on the Island!
