Rimmel Lasting Finish Colour Rush Lip Crayons


Rimmel is definitely one of my favourite drugstore make-up brands - especially when it comes to lip products. I'm a massive fans of the Kate Moss lipsticks, the Apocalips laquers, Provacalips etc... and the Colour Rush crayons are now joining the club. They're my go-to lip product at the moment - and for good reason! Read on to hear my thoughts on my four favourite shades...



I love lip crayons, generally, because they're so easy to apply. When you're on the go, touching-up is so much simpler with a crayon than with a lipstick. The risk with some lip crayons is that the product will be too sheer, too much like a balm to give the kind of impact you'd get from a lipstick - however, the Colour Rush crayons have got the balance perfect. These crayons are highly pigmented, like a lipstick, but are intensely moisturising like a lip balm. They have the added benefit of having a staining effect - to give a long-wearing colour. Before I get on to my 4 favourite shades, it's important to let you know that these smell AMAZING - like chocolate.


There are currently 10 shades ranging nudes, pinks, reds and purples. As you can see, I've got a nice little range of these. 'All you need is pink' and 'Rumour has it' are colours that I always tend to rely on, but 'Make me blush' and 'Viva violet' are colours that were a little bit out of my comfort zone. Funnily enough, they've ended up being my favourite! 


'Make me blush' is a lovely pale pink that has enough pigmentation to not wash me out, but can still work when I want a more 'nude' lip. 

'Viva violet' is a deep pinky-purple. It has enough purple in it to give you a unique look, but enough pink tones to prevent it being too 'out there' for someone who likes to play it safe. 

'All you need is pink' is a beautiful rich pink. 

'Rumour has it' is a deep pinky-red shade. A perfect crayon to use for a berry-lip look!


These crayons are ideal for use in the colder months as they give your lips so much moisture. They are long-wearing, but the balm itself will come off when you eat. Luckily, the stain that I mention earlier remains - so you still get the colour pay off. 


I am loving these crayons at the moment and am finding it so difficult to resist buying more! They're £5.99 in Superdrug - so definitely give them a swatch next time you're in there!
