 Today I’d like to share with you a newly launched Lip and Nail Collection that has been made with Rimmel London in collaboration with Rita Ora*;


What They Say:

Rimmel London Lasting Finish Colour Rush Intense Colour Balm is a crayon-style lip colour balm. The lip crayon provides intense and long-lasting colour and it twists up for fast and precise application. Available in 6 shades.

Rimmel 60 Seconds Nail Colour Rush Polish has a fast-drying formula that dries in less than 60 seconds and comes with Pro-cision brush with longer, supple bristles for quick, easy application. Available in 6 shades.

RRP: Lip Balm $12.95, Nail Polish $7.95 – Available from Priceline, Target, Variety stores and select pharmacies and supermarkets


What I Say:

I think every single makeup brand has launched a lip crayon style balm by now, and well not Rimmel is joining the ranks with the launch of the Lasting Finish Colour rush Intense Colour Balms. You simply twist up the pencil style lip balm and slick it on, just like a lip balm, and the pointy tip makes it very easy,

The have a nice creamy formula, that feels lovely and moisturising on the lips, without being sticky at all, and they are quite pigmented too, so while you can apply just a sheer wash of colour, you can also easily build it up to a more intense look.

The balm claims to be long-lasting, and the colour does stay put on the lips for a few hours, although less if you eat or drink. And the whole time they feel soft and comfortable on the lips, and even when the colour has worn off, my lips feels moisturised as if I’ve just applied a lip balm.

The Colour Balms come in a range of 6 lovely colours, which are all lovely and very wearable;

  • Keep Mauving – Dusty Tea Rose
  • Rumour Has It – Fuchsia
  • GiveMe a Cuddle - Candy pink
  • The Redder The Better - crimson
  •  On Fire – Coral
  •  Drive Me Nude – Neutral

I tried the colours Keep Mauving and Rumour Has It.

I absolutely love both shades that I tried without really being able to say which one is my favourite, so I’m pretty keen on adding a few more shades to my collection.

The Rimmel London Colour Rush 60 Seconds Nail Polish

These new shades by Rita Ora use the same quick dry formula as all the existing colours in the range. They are easy to apply and come with a nice wide brush.

I already have a few of the 60 Seconds Nail Polishes in my collection and love then as they are not only excellent quality, lasting several days on the nails, but they also come in a vast variety of colours and at a bargain price too, and often you can find at even better prices on special.

The new Rita Ora polishes have a Pop Art inspired cap featuring Rita Ora’s portrait and signature on a British stamp, and come in 6 shades, and they have not only been created by Rita, she has named them too!

  • White Hot Love – White with fine shimmer
  •  Lose Your Lingerie – Ice Pink with fine shimmer
  • Breakfast in Bed – Ice Green
  • Don’t Be Shy – fuchsia
  • Do Not Disturb – Teal
  • Midnight Rendezvous - Purple

I tried the shades White Hot Love and Lose Your Lingerie, and I absolutely adore the pale shades, and I know they will look stunning on tanned summer hands and toes.

L: White Hot Love
R: Lose Your Lingerie

However, unfortunately I was really struggling getting a nice finish with White Hot Love, and it was streaky even after two coats, which really surprises me as all the other colours I’ve tried have applied so nicely and streak-free. Luckily Lose Your Lingerie applies much easier and so much nicer. Regardless, both the polishes still have the same good wear, easily lasting 4+ days without a topcoat, which I personally find is quite good.

So unfortunately, while I really want to love both shades, unfortunately White Hot Love just didn’t work for me. I will keep trying, however, as I know I’m not the greatest at applying nail polish, so I’m hopeful that I will get it right one day! But until then, I will enjoy Lose Your Lingerie, with the pretty pastel pink shade.
