Over the half way point now with Day 16 of my #30daysofred in November and today’s lipstick is a beautiful vampy shade from a brand I’ve worn since my early teens (That’s over 25 years – scary)!
This is another shade that I’m in total shock as to why the company have discontinued it or made it like gold dust to find! I don’t own another lipstick like this with the same finish and the colours really unique. Maybe I should start some campaigns to bring back some of these much loved colours! Today’s post is on the vampish Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick in Bordeaux.
I have own Bordeaux now for a good few years. Its one of those shades I actually have 2 of as I used to wear it so much. If you are looking for that kind of vampy, sexy, deep toned red and really want something that’s going to stand out… Bordeaux is definitely for you!
Being a deep, garnet toned reddish brown this colours really intriguing. As I said earlier in this post, I don’t own anything like it (I think the closest is Mulberry but that’s a matte formula by Sleek and I’ll be showing that one in the next week or so) which makes it unique. This shade looks amazing on super pale skin or the darker skin tones. I find in between and it came look a bit odd. I love this lipstick with a dramatic cat wing or seriously smokey grunge eye makeup and false lashes. Makes me feel very sexy wearing it.
Colour pay off is amazing with this one, its super pigmented and really moisturising on the lips. There is a lot of transfer so frequent touch ups are recommended and I would also use an invisible lip liner and lip brush for application as it can bleed. It is a beautiful colour though and if you do see if floating about, I recommend grabbing one!
A search online has come across this shade on Amazon, so you can still get it and I’ve found it also seems to be available stateside too – so not all hope is lost if you want to try this one.
Lots of Love,
