Rimmel London Provocalips | Review

Rimmel London is one of my favourite make up brands so I when I saw their new lip products I couldn't wait to get my hands on them. Usually I like to see reviews for make up before I make a purchase but the packaging of the Provocalips is so gorgeous I just had to get them straight away! 

Rimmel's Provocalips retail at £6.99 and currently in Boots when you spend £10 on any Rimmel London products, you receive a Lash Accelerator Mascara for free which retails at £7.99 - bargain!

Provocalips works in two easy steps. 
Step one: You simply apply your chosen intense colour to your lips.
Step two: Apply lock and shine on top.

Rimmel claims the colour is 'intense' and oh my gosh the colours are amazing! I have 310 Little Minx and 500 Kiss Me You Fool. The colour is definitely intense and just looks so gorgeous! When you apply the colour it is very shiny but then dries on your lips and the shine is lost. However, the intensity of the colour remains. I find the colour quite sticky so it is important you remember to apply the lock and shine. The lock and shine smells lovely and feels so moisturising on the lips as soon as it is applied. Unlike normal lip gloss, Provocalips does not feel sticky and tacky on the lips and is certainly not drying which is always a plus in the Winter months!

Provocalips claims to be kiss-proof and transfer-proof for up to 16hrs. I haven't yet worn my Provocalips for hours on end but for the time I have worn it, the colour has remained perfectly even when I have been eating and drinking. The colour lasts so well throughout the day that I think Provocalips will definitely be kiss-proof too so now we can still look glam after a cheeky kiss ladies - horraaay!!

I've enjoyed wearing these colours so much that I will definitely be purchasing more colours from the range. There are currently 8 shades. I love Rimmel's Provocalips so much and they are definitely a must-have in your make up bag! Let me know if you have tried Provocalips and what shades you purchased - I would love to know your opinions!

  3. Oh my gosh, they look amazing! I've never been a fan of two-step products, but if it means crazy long lasting with great colour, well... I could get behind that.
