New: 1000 Hour Lashes Day to night packs

Spring is my favourite season in terms of fashion and beauty and while natural makeup looks are great, sometimes you just want to be a little more adventurous…with *1000 hour lashes day to night packs, you can go from a day to night look with just a change of your lashes (and a tweak of your makeup).

For the makeup looks below, I used the Exotic black pack.

In no particular order-1. Adam Levine 2. Ian Somerhalder 3. Justin Timberlake 4. Ian Harding 5. Hugh Jackman

I was pretty disappointed that the king of late night, Mr. Jimmy Fallon was not on Rimmel’s drop-down list…so I think he deserves a mention here!

Jimmy Fallon- Is he not handsome enough, people at Rimmel?? Just look at that face… he’s more than just a handsome face though! he’s funny, charming and an all ’round nice guy! Have I convinced you yet?

Oh…right, the review. I was distracted by handsome celebrity men on blog for a moment there…

L-R: 110 Dare to Pink, 200 I’ll Call You, 310 Little Minx, 500 Kiss Me You Fool

I have done the swatches like this because these lipsticks are tough to remove and it would have taken me forever to swatch all 8 on my lips. I would imagine my lips would be quite chapped after it too!

L-R: 700 Skinny Dipping, 730 Make Your Move, 230 Kiss Fatal, 550 Play With Fire

The whole long wear lipstick with a gloss/balm over the top isn’t a new concept and can be a little hit and miss, but I was pleasantly surprised with the Rimmel Provocalips.

I applied one at 9 am and it lasted almost 10 solid hours, before it started to crack/’peel’ off…and that was even after breakfast, lunch and cold and hot drinks, throughout the day!

The clear ‘gloss coat’ is not sticky at all! I think the texture is more like petroleum jelly and it feels more comfortable on the lips!

Final Verdict:

What I liked:

  • These lipsticks certainly go the distance! I was impressed with how long they stayed on without fading/peeling.
  • Great pigmentation and colour range.
  •  Feels comfortable with the gloss over the top, I almost forgot I was wearing it!
  • convenient applicator sponges. I have always favored doe-foot applicators (for liquid lipstick) than I have with brushes or straight from a tube. Less messy and you’re able to get a more even coverage.

What I didn’t like:

  • Could have been a lighter ‘nude’ shade, skinny dipping is more of a Latte colour.
  • Unfortunately when the ‘gloss’ wore off, it was a little uncomfortable on the lips, drying and you could really feel that you had something on your lips. This wasn’t a big problem because I would keep the lipstick in my bag, so I could reapply the gloss anyway.
  • They are very tough to get off and can be abrasive with trying to remove them with makeup wipes. Next time I will try an oil based makeup remover or my Micellar cleansing water and see how that works.
