Rimmel Show Off Lip Lacquer, Review, Swatch, Picture & LOTD

Hello Girls…
                     Today, I'm reviewing rimmel show off lip lacquer. Two weeks ago when I went to Walgreens to pick these lip lacquer…you can't believe :( there was only 3 colors left…ONLY 3...sob sob, so I picked all 3 shades (aurora,big bang & galaxy) but definitely I'll pick rest 10 shades later. These lip lacquer come in 14 different shades but I only picked up 3 shades for $2.50 each on sale but actual price is $4.99 each.

The Packaging…
                     I really like the packaging of these lip lacquer, the packaging is pretty different from other ordinary lip color/gloss tubes. The eye catching thing is, the ombre effect on the bottle/tube. It comes in plastic tube, the bottom of this tube is transparent, so you can check the shade on the bottom half and upper part (twisted cap) of the tube is  little glossy black with diamond crystal type shape.

The bad thing about the packaging is, it is sealed with a peel off sticker and once the sticker is gone then you may not know which shade is which :(... so be careful.

Ingredients (taken from google)...
                                                       Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, Trisostearyl Citrate, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Ozokerite, Kaolin, Stearalkonium Hectorite, Calcium Aluminum Borosilicate, Propylene Carbonate, Phenoxyethanol, Silica, Parfum/Fragrance, Ascorbyl Phosphate, Serica (Silk Powder), Tocopheryl Acetate, Methylparaben, Propylparben, Tocopherol, Ethylparben, Retinyl Palmitate, Tin Oxide, May Contain (+/-):, Mica, Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), D&C Red No. 7 Calcium Lake (CI 15850), D&C Red No. 6 Barium Lake (CI 15850), Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), FD&C Yellow No 5 Aluminum Lake (CI 19140), D&C Red 27 Aluminum Lake (CI 45410), D&C Red No. 33 Aluminum Lake (CI 17200), FD&C BLUE NO. 1 ALUMINUM LAKE (CI 42090), FD&C Yellow No. 6 Aluminum Lake (CI 15985), Carmine (CI 75470)

The Applicator…
                     The applicator is a doe foot applicator which has a tiny dip/dent in the center of the foot to hold extra color and better control when applying. The wand of applicator is really flexible, so it helps on spreading the product.

About the product…
                                   According to rimmel it is neither a lipstick nor a gloss…it is bigger than both. Rimmel show off lip lacquer are just AMAZING…coverage, pigmentation, price…all perfect. Once the color sets, it stays put for most part... but yes there will be some transferring…I know its bad, personally I don't like transferring. The pigmentation of these lip lacquer are crazy, you will get perfect opaque coverage in single application. A little bit amount of product goes a long way, so you need just little bit amount. The formula of these lip lacquer is lightweight silky and smooth.


Aurora : Seems like Aurora is a combination of red,orange and pink shades or you can say it is a reddish coral shade.

Big Ban : Big bang is a true red color it is not too orange, not too blue and it is really pigmented shade. I guess big bang is the star of this range.

Galaxy : Galaxy is a mid tone plum shade with some fine shimmer in it but it is not very visible shimmer.
