Rimmel Lipstick Lock
Rimmel Lipstick Lock
I'm so glad I found this. I've wasted a lot of money on lipsticks which claim to be long lasting but aren't. I wear red lipstick almost daily so it's a pretty major problem for me. This product isn't perfect. Making lipstick stay put without any drawbacks is an essentially impossible task - this does make my lips feel a little dry, but it could be a lot worse and it doesn't compromise at all on the look of my lipstick. You only need a light layer, so this will last ages despite the fact that I use it daily. My only problem with it is the smell. It's like putting nail polish or straight ethanol onto your lips. I always try to hold my breath until it dries, because the strong smell makes me feel nauseous. However, this is only a minor problem since the smell disappears when it dries and it dries within seconds.
It definitely makes my lipstick last longer but it doesn't make it invincible. You still have to be careful when eating and drinking. For example, if you're on a night out, drinking through a straw will make it last for most if not all of the night but if you're eating and drinking without a straw you will probably have to touch it up. It does prevent it from bleeding under any reasonable circumstances though so you can at least avoid the smeared effect.
In short, this is a great product for serial lipstick wearers and for nights out. I'd recommend this to anyone.

makes lipstick go bumpy
I was really happy with this product when I first bought it because it does definitely keep any lipstick on longer. I later realised a few bad points about it, I find that unless I have a really thin layer of lipstick then after putting this on it will dry up through the day and go into little clumps on my lips. Another thing is that you cant wear any glossy or shiny lipsticks with it, after applying the lipstick lock it immediately gets rid of the shine and if you attempt to apply it afterwards, again, it will go into clumps and look really bad. Overall, even though I mainly pointed out the bad points I would still recommend it because lipstick stays on for a considerably longer period of time and its a reasonable price for what it is.
