Rimmel Lipstick HAUL!

Rimmel Rose Bikini, Sugar Plum & Foxy

Because of my success with my first Rimmel lipstick in the shade Glam, I decided to make the most of the Superdrug 3 for 2 offer and try out more shades. These 3 stood out to me and so I bought them. These are Rimmel Rose Bikini, Sugar Plum and Foxy. Keep reading for reviews & swatches!

When I first saw Rose Bikini, I was immediately reminded of MAC's Lollipop Loving and Pink Cabana because of its coral shade with greenish gold reflects! I'm love those two lipsticks since they're so unique and pretty, and so I decided to purchase Rose Bikini.

But when I swatched them, Rimmel Rose Bikini was lighter in pigmentation compared to the other two, which makes me happier that they aren't the same exact shades! For application.. it's creamy to apply but kinda tastes of sunblock (?). I don't eat sunblock lol, but I'm reminded of those lip balms that have SPF. Not really my taste, but I can bear it.

The next one I picked was Rimmel Sugar Plum. I just loved the hot pink-ness and the shimmers. I compared it to some of my hot pink lipsticks from MAC - Fun n Sexy, Pomposity & Rocking Chick:

Based on the swatches, Sugar Plum is as sheer as Fun n Sexy, but Fun n Sexy's shimmers are more reflective. I also thought that Sugar Plum looked like a sheer version of Pomposity, because of the same purple frost.

Lastly, I opted for another nude shade in the Volume Boost range. This is called Foxy, and here it is next to Rimmel Glam lipstick:

As you can see it's lighter and more pink toned.

All in all I'm super happy with my purchases. With the offer at Superdrug, I bought three great lipsticks at the cost of less than one lipstick from MAC! These are pretty good quality in my opinion, so its such a steal! ♥
