Rimmel Colour Rush Lip Crayon | Viva Violet

Have I just been oblivious to these "new" lip crayons from Rimmel for the last couple months, or are these truly new to the drugstore? I don't honestly know! I've seen bloggers from the UK mentioning these as of this fall, but I didn't see any American bloggers talking about them, so I'm going to assume they are new!

Anyway, I saw these in Walmart not too long ago and thought I ought to give these a try. I like Rimmel a lot, and their lipsticks are generally pretty nice. So naturally, I put one in my cart. The shade I picked up is number 300, Viva Violet, a gorgeous orchid pink.

These Colour Rush lip crayons are super easy to apply, they go on nice and smooth and they provide really nice color coverage. The scent is nearly identical to a MAC lipstick, sort of vanilla scented. These don't claim to stain your lips, but merely claim to be "long lasting". I got a solid 2-3 hours of wear, even with drinking and eating, but there was definite color transfer on to my coffee mug. After 3 hours, the color wasn't looking so great and it was time to reapply. I found these to be lightly hydrating and comfortable to wear, not drying or cakey in the slightest.

Product: 4/5

I really like this new lip crayon from Rimmel. I want to see what other colors they have and pick a few more up, because I believe these were under $6 (cheap!). They smell great, apply smoothly and look beautiful on the lips! These are best to wear when you have time to reapply and aren't looking for a super long wearing lipstick. Rimmel Colour Rush Lip Crayons are Glazed Over approved!
