RIMMEL London Colour Rush Lip and Nail Collection by Rita Ora Review

September 25th, 2014

I like it when makeup brands collaborate with celebrities. One of the reasons is because such collections usually have products and colours that are different to what the brand holds regularly, and the other reason is these collections have really amazing limited edition packaging. Being a serial makeup hoarder, I love to add limited edition makeup to my personal collection.

And I like it even more when drugstore brands release collections in collaboration with celebrities as they are affordable and I can own pretty much every product released. So when Rimmel released their Colour Rush Lip and Nail Collection by Rita Ora, I was expectedly excited!

Rita Ora’s makeup is something makeup enthusiasts are inspired by. I personally love the way she rocks the signature red lip – being a red lip advocate myself. The collection consists of six Intense Colour Balms, aka your chubby sticks, and six 60 Seconds Nail Polishes.

The Beauty Mantra opinion

I got my hands on two Lasting Finish Colour Rush Intense Colour Balm shades – one had to be the red one called ‘The Redder, The Better’ and the other one is a nude-y shade called ‘Keep Mauving’. Both the shades are very creamy with a shiny finish. They smell amazingly of vanilla, and may/may not initiate a sugar craving! 😛 The pigmentation is super good, especially the red one. It is Spring now in Australia and almost edging towards summer, and I could think of no better time to bring out the chubby sticks. They are light on the lips, and the packaging is just perfect for popping into the travel bag or beach bag.

They are not long lasting lip products, but then again chubby sticks never are. They offer the hydration of a lip balm but with lots more colour pay off. If you are just staring out on the collection, I would suggest picking these two shades. Keep Mauving is a nud-y colour with a hint of mauve in it. It looks really good on medium to dark skin tones like mine, and is a good day time shade. The Redder, The Better is ideal for night time look – clubbing, night out with the girls or that office party. This shade of red brightens up any outfit in an instant.

Coming to the nail polishes, I had to choose the fuchsia colour called ‘Don’t Be Shy’ (Am I getting too predictable?!). True to the name, the nail polish dries really fast with no brush streaks. The finish is glossy. I like the short handle of brush as it is easier to control. The smaller bottle size is also practical as I can’t remember the last time I used up an entire bottle of polish. The best part of the nail polishes is the packaging – the bottles come with a graphic picture of Rita Ora!! Me likes!!
