Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick Swatches

There is a shop in my local town called 'The Original Factory Shop' which is what I would call a 'seconds' shop. This basically means it stocks all the stuff that other shops couldn't sell or items that have been discontinued.

Obviously, the make-up section is my favourite part of the store. It's where I discovered the best top coat ever and is great for stumbling upon products that you've wanted to try in the past but never fancied paying the rrp for.

Today, I found some Rimmel lipsticks at just £1 each.  I could have easily taken home one in every colour but had to exercise some willpower and limit myself to 3! The shades I finally decided on are (L-R)
210 Coral In Gold
175 Signature Red
086 Sugar Plum

I was absolutely amazed at the price and the range of shades they had. I've done a bit of research on the web and found that Coral in Gold and Sugar Plum are available in the current range of Lasting Finish lipstick.
It appears that Rimmel have just changed up the packaging and sold off all the old stock to stores like this one.

Coral In Gold is exactly what it says on the lid. It's a coral colour in a base of gold shimmer. The gold is not too visible when it's on the lips. I've been wanting to try a coral lipstick for a long time and at £1, I couldn't really put it off for much longer! I was a bit concerned about it clashing with my orange hair but the two shades compliments each other very nicely.

Sugar Plum is a frosty berry pink. This is a shade I'd be very happy to wear in the day or as part of a party look. Berry pinks always have this great versatility.

Signature Red, wow. I love red lipstick. It's the best way to set yourself apart from the crowd and this one will not disappoint. Not for the wallflowers among us, this will definitely draw some stares!
