Rimmel London Lasting Finish Lipstick in 'Heartbreaker' - Review, Pictures and Swatches

Hello Everyone,

Hope you all are doing well and are happy and healthy. 

My love for bright and bold lipsticks continues... This was such a beautiful shade, which I swatched with my other Rimmel London lipstick (Reviewed here), that immediately I had to have it, and that too at a dirt cheap price tag. 

The shade is a beautiful bright rosey  fuchsia pink, if that make sense. It doesn't really have very strong blue or warm undertones so, it will suit a a wide range of skintones and shades. Its a beautiful BRIGHT PINK shade. 

Unlike my other Rimmel London lipstick this lipstick is more of MAC's amplified cream finish types and the little bit of shine which this lipstick has stays for 2-3 hours. It dries a little bit after sometime but the stain is still there with the same intensity of shade. The stain was there for good 6-7 hours, after which it started fading and got faded completely after 9 hours. I noticed a little bit of bleeding with this lipstick when worn with a lipgloss, which I haven't noticed with any of my lipsticks so far, whether worn with gloss or not. It bleeds in the fine lines around my lips. I avoided this to some extent by using a lip pencil, but the bleeding was still there. Lip pencil only delayed the bleeding.

It's pigmentation and color pay-off is just awesome. With just a single swipe you get the full intensity of the shade as it is in the tube.

Okay, now this beauty dug a very tiny hole in my pocket (no hole actually). Yep, its only of Rs. 215/-. Dirt cheap, isn't it? 

It comes in a plastic dark brownish wine kinda tube, which, to me is not appealing at all. In fact it looks cheap! But, for the price and product, packaging is not be a criteria for me to chose or leave a product and I am sure it is not for yo as well!

It has a sweet vanilla scent, which, to my sensitive nose is not a problem at. This could be an issue with some you, though.

Overall, its not an 'Heartbreaker' but a 'Winner'. It won my heart, except for the bleeding part with gloss. Doesn't matter, but, alone also it no as drying as my other Rimmel lipstick.
