Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick in Airy Fairy!

Rimmel Airy Fairy Lipstick

Airy Fairy is a lipstick you probably all know about. The particular shade is the most popular of Rimmel’s shade selection, as it’s a great every day color that is flattering on several skin tones. The color is a pink-mauve with a golden sheen. The actual color is quite “cool” (purple/blue toned) but because of the golden sheen, it’s a bit more wearable on my warm skin tone. I stay away from lipsticks with any traces of purple to them, as they do nothing for me – but because of the popularity of this color, I thought I’d take the opportunity to try it out in a recent swap. I’m not too crazy about it alone, but it looks really pretty under a pink lip gloss. The formula is smooth, applies evenly and feels moisturizing on the lips. It is fairly opaque and builds well for full opacity.

  1. I agree with Catherine – I've been hearing so many good things about it, but it's disappointing that a UK branded lipstick isn't available in the UK 😦 Xx


  2. I have this lipstick and I hated it. The color looked pretty but it made my teeth look yellow!! It has weird undertones. Looks beautiful on you though!
