RIMMEL STAY MATTE LIQUID LIPSTICK REVIEW AND SWATCHES - LATTE TO GO, MOCA, PLUM THIS SHOW AND PITCH BLACK.


I saw the advert for this all over my Facebook page, and knew I had to give them a shot. I popped into my local Boots and picked up Latte To Go and Moca for buy one get one half price and loved them so much that I knew I had to go and grab another two shades. This is then where Plum This Show and Pitch Black came in. I have a lot to say about these guys, so let's get stuck in!
Moca, Latte To Go, Plum This Show and Pitch Black.

So as I previously said, I picked up Latte To Go and Moca first and I kid you not, I fell in love. This is hands down one of the best matte lipstick formula I have found on the high street - For nude shades. These two shades applied beautifully from the tube with easy application and an opaque, matte finish. The nudes stayed on all day with no need for any touch ups. These didn't bleed, didn't flake and most importantly, did what it suggested it would - Waterproof, kiss proof and touch proof. They didn't leave any marks on my countless cups of tea which left the person cleaning my cups at work happy as my lipstick usually gets everywhere. 
Even with that high praise, I can't say the same for Plum This Show and Pitch Black. Plum This Show wasn't terrible, it was just hard to get even. Because the texture is so light and whipped, it takes a lot of time to get the rich plum shade opaque with no streaks. The colour is absolutely beautiful and because of that I don't mind giving it that extra couple of minutes to get it to look nice, but it does take time and if you're inexperienced with liquid lips I would give this one a miss. It's such a shame as once it's on the lips it doesn't bleed or transfer, and I can kiss my boyfriend with no red left behind. 
Pitch Black was honestly a huge fail. I really don't like saying completely bad things about a product but this shade really let the team down. It was streaky beyond belief, and the swatch on my lips below is after a long time building the layers up and hoping I could get a flawless finish. The photo below is about as good as I could get it, but it was so thick and weird that it just wasn't cute. You can see in the swatch above that it's a little streaky and isn't really black enough to be called 'Pitch Black'. Unfortunately I will not be reaching for this at all and the only time I can see myself using is it to darken any of the Stay Matte Liquid Lipsticks or create an ombre, but I wont be wearing it on its own at all. That said, Latte to Go and Moca are two incredible shades and really are faultless - so if you are a nude lipstick lover I urge you to check those shades out, they're beautiful!

As I said, if you're a nude lover please check out the nude range, you wont be disappointed! I want to try a few more shades that are darker to see if there are any dark shades that are a little less streaky, so watch this space for that!
