Hello everyone! So if you've read my blog for a while, you'll know I've been on the hunt for the perfect daytime red for the longest time. My aim has been to find a moisturising, bright red that's also long wearing and smudge proof - because for me, daytime make-up is supposed to be low maintenance. Lipstick smudging paranoia is bad enough already without the harsh, unforgiving light of day to add to the pressure. Ain't nobody got time for that. 

On my every-ongoing shopping spree for red lipsticks, I came across the Rimmel Colour Rush Balm and decided to give it a go. To start, this colour 'The Redder The Better' is the exact red shade that I've been looking for. Pale or tan, this will suit. This is important for me because, as a fake tan lover, I vary between both ends of this scale throughout the week. (and if you remember my 'Week in Outfits' series before Christmas, you'll know exactly what I'm talking about.)

The balm formula is really moisturising. This is something I wasn't expecting having tried similar products in the past, that seemed to do the opposite and dry my lips out. When first applied, this has a very moisturised to somewhat glossy appearance but once it's 'set', it becomes less glossy and more natural, which I prefer. This continues to moisturise throughout the day without reapplication, and feels like it protects my lips from the cold Winter weather too. 

Last but not least, and my absolute most favourite thing about this product is the ridiculously good staying power. I've done a few long day shots wearing this, and it easily glides past the 6 hour mark, and that's with eating and drinking in between. As soon as the product has fully absorbed into the lips (10/15 minutes after application), you're good to go for the rest of the day. 

This product is everything I've been looking for and I can see these lip crayons quickly earning their own little corner of my make-up drawer! I've got my eye on some neutral shades next... 

Have any of you tried this?
What's your favourite shade?
