Rimmel released a new line called Show Off Lip Lacquers here in the US recently which I revealed to you here! These lippies were released in the UK last January & I’ve been chomping at the bit ever sense. They’ve gotten rave reviews & I can see why! Keep reading to see lots of photos, more information, & a video so you can see the shades in action!
Today I have 6 shades to share, all creams. There are also quite a few shimmers which you can see on the Nouveau Cheap blog here! I’ve taken quite awhile to test wear on each shade & can tell you I’ll be picking up some more! There are 14 shades that have been released here in the US. That’s great considering the UK only got 8! Most of the US only shades contain shimmer.
Each shade comes with a twist off seal. While shopping be sure this isn’t broken. The shade name is also located on the seal which is why I am leaving them on.
The applicator on these is pretty amazing & I’ve never seen anything like it. At first glance they look like your average gloss applicator but there is actually a well. The color then is deposited on your lips more evenly & you don’t have to pump the tube for more product like other glosses. The lid resembles a black diamond which is a cool shape.They’re irregular so they catch the light. The tube itself & lid are plastic. You get 0.18 fl oz in each tube.
The formula on these shades are pretty even across the board! They are ultra creamy, ultra pigmented, & not tacky at all. They don’t stain your lips so they don’t wear more than 3-4 hours. You can see in the video about the transfer. Very comfortable to wear! You can even put a lip balm underneath them without altering the lacquer which is nice if you have dry lips. On normal lips, these shouldn’t be too drying or moisturizing. They have a nice balance. After about 1 hour they lose most of the gloss & they end up being more of a satin/matte. You can then add more product or top with another gloss.

I am so crazy happy with these shade. In fact, although I’ve been passing on shimmery shades lately, I might just need to snatch up some from this line. These are so comfortable, ultra pigmented, & unlike most lip products coming out lately they don’t stain my lips. I love stains but not when I want something a little more carefree, I don’t have to worry about these sliding around & staining everything in sight. I am so impressed with these shades!
You can see the display where I found these shades in my spotted post here from Walgreens.
