Review // Rimmel 1000 Kisses Lip Stain in 'Nothing But Nude'

Another purchase from my lip product splurge! I didn't intentionally go out looking for one of these, I was actually after one of Revlon's lip butters, but after testing out most of the shades I found that they all seemed very harsh and bright. I saw this as I was paying at the tills and added one to my basket!

I bought mine in Superdrug where it was on offer for £5.99, and it's £6.99 in Boots, but both stores are currently offering 2 for £10 on selected products. It comes in 7 shades, and I picked up the most natural looking of the collection. 
The product claim from the Rimmel website:
'1000 Kisses Lip Tint gives your lips a royal flush of intense, vibrant colour that stays on duty and ready for action for hours - leaving no trace, so your kisses never tell.

The speedy two-step application delivers a fabulously flawless finish that is totally on trend and just begs to be kissed. A precision pen-tip delivers the mistake-free colour you're looking for and a caring balm seals the deal, giving lips the extra moisturising they've been waiting for. 

There are 6 must-have shades in a translucent colour-matched design that gives you the freedom of being able to re-invent your look every day.'

The fact that it comes with a colour sealing balm is what really sold it to me (aswell as it being on offer, of course!) as long-lasting lip colour is a must - I don't have the time or effort for reapplying lip colour constantly.

If anyone has seen my recent review on Collection 2000's Cream Puff Lip Cream, you will see that this is very similar in colouring, just in a stain version - very much another 'your lips but better' shade. It's very moisturising and has a pleasant fruity smell to it. The balm is my favourite part of this product! I imagine that without it, the lipstain would really leave my lips feeling dry after a while, but the balm helps keep my lips feeling hydrated aswell as locking in the colour. I did find that the precision pen can dry out quite quickly, but if you stand the pen on its end for a while, it is soon ready to use again! This is much more affordable than the original lipstains that seemed to hit the drugstore brands, and I'm glad I decided to get this instead of settling for a Revlon lip butter in a shade I wasn't 100% keen on. The colour range, although small, has a good selection, with pinks, and much deeper shades to suit individual personalities and skin tones. This is definitely worth trying out - it's the first lipstain I've personally tested out, and I'm glad I tried it! For me, the bonus is that it really does last on the lips, although maybe 1000 kisses is quite ambitious?
