Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Lip Colour in Midnight

A few weeks ago the Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Lip Colour in the shade Midnight was doing the rounds on blogs. Being a big fan of matte liquid lipsticks and dark bold shades it only seemed natural that i jumped on the bandwagon to see what all the fuss was about for myself.

I have tried a lot of liquid lipsticks, you only have to go through my blog archive to see all that various reviews I've done over the past few years so i feel like i know what i like when it comes to liquid lipsticks. Now there is a lot i like about this liquid lipstick - it has a nice creamy formula, it's quite comfortable once it's dried, it lasts ages on me, it's affordable and the packaging is quite cute.

So in terms of my expectations it does tick a lot of boxes that i like when it comes to liquid lipsticks but the one place that lets this particular one down is the application. It has a really nice sturdy applicator but it takes a lot of work and patience to get a neat application. I don't know if it's all their liquid lipsticks or if it's just because this is such a dark colour that it's so noticeable but it's quite patchy. You have to really work with it to get an even layer but you also need to be careful because to many layers can make it quite thick and chunky on the lips - which i really don't like.

I like to apply the Essence Long Lasting Lip Liner in Be a Game Changer first, as it gives me guide to work with and just helps give a much neater application. It's not so bad one you get the knack for applying it but it's definitely something to bear in mind if you're thinking about trying it.

I'd also like to point out that it doesn't have the most pleasant scent either, it smells like cheap lipstick. I don't know if that makes any sense but it reminds me of Laval Lipsticks that i used to have when i was younger and they were like 80p.

Onto the shade, isn't is beautiful? The shade Midnight is dark blackberry almost burgundy plum shade; It's very similar tone to Kat Von D's Exorcism but this is a lot darker to the point in some photos it actually looks black. It's such a bold shade and i don't know what it is about shades like this but they just made me feel so confident and kick ass.

If i didn't love this shade so much - i probably wouldn't bother with it because the application is such a pain but i adore this shade, so I'm willing to work with it.

Have you tried the Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Lip Colours?

  1. What a pretty shade! I personally feel like all bold liquid lipsticks need a little work to apply neatly but this sounds like a bit more of a pain than usual. xx
