There are times, when you don’t need to shell out mega bucks to find a beauty gem. This was the case when browsing the makeup aisles of boots looking for a more winter appropriate lip colour a couple of weeks ago. Yes we all know about good ol Rimmel 107, That berry hued lipstick. A firm favourite of Zoe Suggs along with everyone in the beauty community it seems. But I already own this and to be honest, even though I found a way to make it work for me I don’t really wear it too much. I still find it a bit awkward to apply... I don't have time to faff with a lip brush with every application! Recently I have found myself drifting towards lipliners and using those as a lipstick, they are much easier to use on the go. It’s been working well. One shade I have actually repurchased a couple of times is also from Rimmel. The Exaggerate lip liner in East End Snob. It’s easy to apply, the colour is lovely for day time, the colour lasts and hardly costs the earth… with that in mind, I thought why not check out what other shades they have on offer. Maybe they’ll have something a little more suitable for winter.
I knew they had brought out some new shades so was certain I would probably find something suitable….and I did. Enter the shade 105 ‘Under my spell’. It’s a lot darker than I would EVER go for. But you know, I’ve been feeling a little brave and thought WHY NOT. Being part of the same line, it has all the qualities of East End Snob but just the other end of the shade spectrum! This has swiftly become the shade I sport on the weekends, leaving East End Snob as the more work appropriate option for during the week!
At £3.99 it is an absolute steal, I know I will probably find myself buying another before this one runs out. I’d be tempted to look at some of the other shades too. If any of you have any recommendations then please do leave a comment. I think I’ve discovered a new favourite lip product!

Isn’t it nice when you don’t dread a product running out because you know you won’t have to live off beans on toast to replace it?
