Building a Collection

For some reason, I've turned into a bit of a lipstick junkie the last few weeks. I've always loved Rimmel lipsticks, and have had Berry Queen for a while. Then the other week I picked up Nude Delight after seeing Tanya Burr use it, and then when I wanted a new coral coloured lipstick after watching The Carrie Diaries, I went back to this range, as I love the moisture they give. I then thought 4 lipsticks of the same make deserved a post.

Nude Delight:

Now I've never really been one for orange toned lipsticks, but I've found myself reaching for this a lot. As it's one of my few nudes that doesn't have a pink undertone, I find it really makes dark eye make-up more day time appropriate.

Soft Coral:

This one I picked up when I couldn't decided what kind of coral I wanted, so I picked up this and the one below. It is definitely on the lighter more pink side of coral, and is more subtle than the one below.

Coral Queen:

This is definitely the brighter side of coral (you can see how I justified the two) and is really quite bright in real life. I think it will be perfect for summer.

Berry Queen:

They like their Queens don't they? This is a much deeper colour, and is very red and berry toned. For me it is a definite winter shade, and I have to have a lot of confidence the day I wear it, as bold lips scare me,  but I do love them.

Have you tried anything from this range?

  1. I bought a nude from that collection and it makes me look like seriously ill, however you pull it off amazingly! That's a good collection of such pretty colours! x

  2. Soft coral and Nude delight are my favorite of the four. I haven't got a coral lipstick but want to branch out in the summer so might try this one as it doesn't look to bright and scary.

    1. They are lovely :) Yes, definitely try soft coral :)


  3. I'm into lipstick at the moment. I think it's definitely a spring thing.

  4. I really like coral queen, you're right it is such a perfect summer shade :)


  5. They're beautiful! Adore both those coral shades xx
