Rimmel London Show Off Matte Lip Velvet Lacquer

I picked up a few of the new Rimmel Matte Show Off Lip Lacquers at my local drugstore. There are five shades in the new matte line, the shades I got are Atomic Rose and Burning Lava. Here’s a look at what they look like!

I honestly don’t use matte products as much because I have sensitive and dry lips, and most matte products make my lips look horrendous, but these aren’t that drying. They apply nicely and evenly with one application and feel comfortable on the lips.

They last longer than lipsticks or glosses, but will fade with time and/or eating. The thing I didn’t like about them, especially with the darker shades like Burning Lava shade, is that it is super high maintenance. I forgot I had it on and rubbed my mouth and OH BOY was I a mess. But I guess that was my fault. I did a kiss test on the back of my hand right after I applied and there was color transfer and staining, so be careful not to get it on your clothes, or other people!

Overall I think they’re a nice matte lip product, especially for the price tag of $5. I’ll probably look into picking up some of the other shades!
