Rimmel London Colour Rush Balm | Swatch & Review

I gave these a quick mention in my Toronto Haul post/video. I was really excited to spot these in Canada, though they have been available in the UK for a while now. I’m addicted to crayon lip products – gotta catch ’em all.

Rimmel London Colour Rush Balm

Rimmel Lasting Finish Colour Rush Intense Colour Balm combines long-lasting vibrant colour and moisturising power. They claim to be vibrant, yet feel light on the lips.

220 Rumour Has It


220 Rumour Has It – a berry shade that sometimes looks pink or red. It looks red in the face shot for some reason.

300 Viva Violet


300 Viva Violet – orchid, blue-toned fuchsia.

700 Not An Illusion


700 Not An Illusion – A muted peach that wears like a peachy nude on me, I instantly gravitated towards this one.

The Rimmel Colour Rush Balms are light feeling and glossy looking on the lips. The product isn’t soft or buttery, it feels hard on the lips, but deposits color evenly without tugging. I found them moisturising to an extent and they don’t dry out the lips.

I have noticed that they look different in other people’s swatches depending on their skin tone and natural lip pigmentation. Those are some things to keep in mid when you are shopping the rang; their a tad sheer at first

They are medium to full coverage, since they are lightweight enough to build up with multiple swipes, without feeling uncomfortable. When the balm effect fades away, the lips are left with a nice stain. 

As for fragrance, these smell sweet, like vanilla.

These Balms ended up being what I had expected from the Revlon Lacquer Balms, though they are not as shiny. The Rimmel Balms are lighter, less greasy feeling and just over all lovely.

What do you think of the Rimmel London Colour Rush Balm?
