Review | Rimmel London Lip balms

I have always been a huge lip balm girl. You can find different sticks and little pots in my bag, pencil case, the pockets of my coats or jackets and sometimes they'd sadly get ruined by the washing machine when I had forgotten them in the pocket of my jeans. 
As all of you already know by now (or if you don't, why have you lived in the left corner of a shoebox for the past month?) Rimmel London launched a new Keep Calm lip balm range back in August and when they finally hit the stores I went and bought all of them - typical me.

As soon I saw them, I fell in love with the colourful and fun packaging - and the fact that most of the lip balms leave a hint of colour on your lips except the "Keep calm and Shop". I have always liked Maybelline's Baby Lips range but I find the Rimmel's Keep Calm a lot more hydrating. They are very smooth and easy to apply with the slanted nib. I haven't had the courage to try out purple lipstick yet so I think it's great to see how it would look on me using the Party lip balm even though the colour is a lot more subtle.

Personally I think Rimmel London has done a great job with the lip balms and they are something I've started to use every day, all day. They're not only useful for when your lips are dry but also a great way to start out using something different for your lips especially if you're just beginning to use makeup but don't want to go for lipstick just yet. I think it's something moms could buy for their daughters when they play princess and want to put a bit of makeup on - as we all wanted to do when we were little - or then they could just buy it for themselves and use it to brighten up their look a bit.

Have you tried these lip balms? What did you think of them?

  1. I have not heard of these! I was not a fan of the Baby Lips, but I should give this a try:)

    1. You should totally try them! Since I bought them I haven't used any other lip balms!

  2. I have to find these! :D

  3. I think these are a lot better than the Maybelline ones even though I like both. Definitely try them out :)

  4. Yes you do, haha! I use them all the time when I'm not wearing lipstick :)

    Wow I wish I liked them as much as you do. I had a completely different experience with them. But that's the beauty of makeup, there is something for everyone. I feel like I'm the only one that doesn't like these, but I don't like baby lips much either. I'm happy to have found your blog, I love getting others opinions on products that I have tried.
    Hugs from your subscriber.

    Nice review. I did not like these personally. I think I expected something different from what I got. But that's the beauty of makeup, there is soething for everyone. I personally like really moisturizing waxy formulas and that's not for everyone, I also have pretty dry lips. I did a review of them on my blog if you want to read it? I think it's always interesting to see others point of view on products I have tried.

  7. Thanks lovely! I definitely agree with you, I think it's great how big the selection of different brands and products is :).
    Sure, I'll read it, thanks for sharing! Xx
